<< The Washington Post reports the Federal Aviation Administration alerted the national military air defense command that a hijacked jet was hurtling toward the Pentagon 12 minutes before the plane hit, but apparently no one relayed that message to Pentagon security so they didn't evacuate building. >>
I'm wondering why no one would have relayed the information.....if they would have, coudln't they have shot down the plane, or at least evacuated the building? I know that they didn't know what part of the building was gonna be hit, but at least they could have been on alert and had some fighter jets in the area, right? (i don't know the distance of the base from the pentagon, so i'm just guessing)
What do you guys think?
