Lt. Col. Robert Bowman on 9/11: “There’s a second group of facts having to do with the cover up. Taken together these things prove that high levels of our government don’t want us to know what happened and who’s responsible. Who gained from 9/11? Who covered up crucial information about 9/11? And who put out the patently false stories about 9/11 in the first place? When you take those three things together, I think the case is pretty clear that it’s highly placed individuals in the administration with all roads passing through Dick Cheney…. [re failure of NORAD to intercept the four hijacked planes on 9/11} Col. Bowman I'm an old interceptor pilot. I know the drill. I've done it. I know how long it takes. I know the rules. Critics of the government story on 9/11 have said: “Well, they knew about this, and they did nothing”. That's not true. If our government had done nothing that day and let normal procedure be followed, those planes, wherever they were, would have been intercepted, the Twin Towers would still be standing and thousands of dead Americans would still be alive.” .
