It has been interesting to see how the pro-war crowd tries to demonize Cindy Sheehan.

She is no politician, like Sen. John McCain. She is a mother who has paid the greatest price for the war and she, along with the rest of America, deserves an explanation. The question is no longer whether or not the Bush administration lied; the question is, "Why did they lie?"

As someone who has studied U.S. policy in the Middle East for many years, I felt fairly certain that Saddam posed no threat to the United States. I got my information from newspapers, magazine articles and books.

McCain and his congressional colleagues had access to much better information than I did, and so did the Bush administration, but they chose to ignore it. Sheehan is right to call them warmongers.

President Bush should be impeached for lying to the American public. He and his Cabinet should be tried for war crimes. Don't expect to see it anytime soon, though, because the right is wallowing in power, and that power has become dearer to them than truth and justice or even human life.

The war criminal-in-chief's desperate lack of political and diplomatic savvy precluded him from walking down his driveway for a 5 minute chat with Cindy Sheehan, after which she would have disappeared, leaving the anti-war movement with a much harder hill to climb.

There is nothing to suggest that the current Republican majority on Capitol Hill has any more of a clue than Dubya. If they want even a CHANCE of maintaining their majority after next year's elections, they better stop voting down resolutions of inquiry and start talking about impeachment hearings.

Of course, perhaps their refusal to call the most impeachable administration in the history of this country on the carpet for its criminal activity is indication of more fraud to come.

Like another promise from Diebold to deliver an election regardless of the will of the people.

DON'T LET IT HAPPEN.

Every day of the week, there are KOOKS asking to meet with the President. He did meet with Cindy previously. She had her chance to say whatever she wanted, and she blew it! You're stuck on stupid!

Actually it doesn't take looking much deeper to find out the "why" of
the lie. The Project for a New American Century's (PNAC) defining paper, which outlines the goals of the neocons, states the reason quite blatantly. They believe that now that the US is the only superpower, it is the right time to restructure the military to get it ready to grab and control the world's resources. Iraq is a cornerstone of the psychotic plan. The paper was primarily authored by Wolfowitz in 2000, and solidified the thinking of the maniacs who are now in charge of our country. Here's a link to the paper. On page 51, you'll see a reference to the need for a "New Pearl Harbor". Many of us who have looked seriously and openmindedly at the evidence believe that one year later this need became the atrocity of 9/11 (i.e., 9/11 was the biggest "false flag" operation in recent history -- it was an inside job).

Sadam posed no threat? The Liberals are more dangerous than he is.....open your eyes.

I'm assuming that the moderator will probably not allow my last 2 posts. Doesn't that violate my right to free speech. None of you are happy unless the government is funding another social program. Do you all realize that Democrats have created a system of dependance for all of you....for no other purpose but to maintain the electorate. All the social programs do nothing but discourage people from taking personal responsibility....you all hold out your hand...taking from those of us who work hard and are self sufficient.You blame everything on the Conservatives...from gas prices to natural disasters. katrina response was slow because the Democrats at the local level blew it....the LA Governor and New Orleans mayor screwed up....response starts at the local level not the executive level as you want all of us to believe.Gas prices are high because you tree huggers insist we not explore our own sources of oil right beneath our feet...you all site the enviroment while you are driving your SUVs and Hummers. Let us develop our own sources of energy and our foreign dependance will stop, and prices will go down...it's that simple.I figure this will never be seen by anyone on this site...the moderator will take care of that. What about your Democratic pals....Kennedy who got away with murder all those years ago...Kerry who used his military background as a campaign pitch...you are all hipocrits. If you don't like the USA....leave...we would all be better off.

911 Conspiracy
Bush and Buffett Convergence on 911? -- We Demand Some Answers

Oct. 12, 2003
Sterling D. Allan

The report below documents that on the morning of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on America, before the attack commenced, the world's second most wealthy man was already at the U.S. Strategic Command headquarters where G.W. Bush flew later that day for "safety." As the attack began, Anne Tatlock was already en route to this same location. She arrived at the base to join Buffet in time to watch the second plane make a direct hit on the tower precisely where her office complex was located.

Strange coincidence?

This smacks too much of a conspiracy and begs to be investigated. What was Buffet, a civilian, doing at a military base? Did Buffet and others of his invite meet with Bush when Bush went there later that day? If they did, what was the nature of their meeting? If they claim to not have met, can they provide sworn affidavits, evidence and witnesses proving that they were elsewhere?

Combined with Bush's blatant negligence earlier in the morning at Booker Elementary, the insinuations of a possible meeting with Buffett are grave indeed. They suggest that President George W. Bush was in on inner workings of the planning and execution of the nations worst terrorist attack. These things insinuate that not only did Bush have prior knowledge of the attack, but he was privy to its purposes and intended outcomes such as the anti-Constitutional Patriot Act and the Iraqi war for more control of the Mideast. At a minimum, it appears he was hanging out with those who did.

This information should be thoroughly investigated and made known to every citizen of the United States and every thinking inhabitant of this planet to awaken them to the awful situation we are in.

Pass this on to everyone you know. Don't expect to see this covered in this way in the mainstream press. You will see from the date stamps of the various news articles below that this information was published in the mainline press a long time ago, but not pieced together or questioned.

America is ripe for a revolution at the ballot, as California has shown us -- except this time without Warren Buffet at its side.

Warren E. Buffett, the world's 2nd richest person.

So where was Warren Buffett the morning of 9/11 and what was he doing?

Of all places, Mr. Buffett just happened to be at the U.S. Strategic Command headquarters located at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, Nebraska. Offutt AFB is, coincidentally, where President G.W. Bush flew to on Air Force One later on in the day for "safety". What was Buffett doing there? Mr. Buffett was "hosting a charity event" super early in the morning which included a small group of business leaders in which one of them became a very lucky person.

This person who became very lucky was Ann Tatlock, the CEO of Fiduciary Trust Co. International. Now what made Mrs. Tatlock such a lucky person for being at this event that morning? Mrs. Tatlock works in the World Trade Center and not only that, but her offices were right where Flight 175 crashed into the WTC 2...

► "Anne Tatlock found out about the collision of a plane with the North Tower while en route to the U.S. Strategic Command headquarters in Omaha. The 62-year-old chief executive of Fiduciary Trust Co. International was one of a small group of business leaders at a charity event hosted by Warren Buffett. Military officers boarded the bus she was on, and escorted her to an officer's lounge and a television, just in time to see the second plane hit the South Tower between the 87th and 93rd floors--right where 650 of her employees worked.
Fiduciary, which today manages $44 billion of securities for pension plans, endowments and wealthy individuals..." -Forbes (10/15/01)

► "On the morning of Sept. 11, Tatlock herself had just arrived with a small group of business leaders at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha for a charity event hosted by Warren Buffett. She then heard the news of the first plane hitting the World Trade Center's north tower.
Moments later, back in Omaha, a television picture flashed on a large screen, and Tatlock witnessed the second plane plowing into the south tower.
"There on the screen, I saw the second plane crash into my office," Tatlock recalled." -San Francisco Business Times (week of 2/04/02)

► "Executives of money-management firm Fiduciary Trust Inc., a unit of Franklin Resources Inc., said many of the 500 employees who worked in the complex had gotten out, but officials didn't have an exact count. "We've been incredibly lucky; people we knew were in there got out," said Anne Tatlock, the firm's chairman and chief executive.
Fiduciary Trust, which occupied five floors that were located high in the South Tower, caters to investors of substantial net worth and used its elegant offices to help woo clients, who often paused to admire the amazing views when they visited.
Ms. Tatlock was in Omaha, Neb., at a conference sponsored by Warren Buffett when she heard about the disaster. "I thought, why would they joke, then I saw the TV," she said. -Wall Street Journal (9/12/01)

► 3:07 p.m. – Bush arrives at U.S. Strategic Command at Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska. -September11News.com

► The United States Strategic Command, or USSTRATCOM, is headquartered at Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska.

Now why was the 2nd richest man in the world hosting a charity event so earlier in the morning at the U.S. Strategic Command headquarters that particular day and what are the odds that a CEO was invited who's offices were right where one of the hijacked airplanes crashed into?
Some other questions that arise from this "charity event" is:

1. What was this charity event about?

2. Who were the rest of the business leaders that attended, why were they invited, and who invited them?

An interesting angle about Ann Tatlock's company, Fiduciary Trust Co. International, is that President Bush's nominee to head the panel that's investigating the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, Thomas Kean, used to serve as the company's director which has a lot of wealthy clients...

► President Bush named former New Jersey Gov. Thomas Kean, a moderate Republican with a record of bipartisan cooperation, to replace Henry Kissinger as head of the panel investigating the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.
He serves on several corporate boards, including those of the international petroleum company Amerada Hess Corp., the Pepsi Bottling Group and Aramark Corp., which manages food and support services at office buildings, sports arenas and other facilities.
Aramark ran the food court on top of 2 World Trade Center as well as concessions and tours of the observation deck. Several of its employees died in the tower. Also, Kean has long served as director of Fiduciary Trust Co., a financial company that lost 87 employees in the World Trade Center.
Kristen Breitweiser, whose husband died in the trade center Sept. 11 while working for Fiduciary Trust and who is a leader of September 11th Advocates, said about Kean, "Assuming he has no conflicts, I hope he can do the job that needs to be done."
Breitweiser noted that Fiduciary was a leaseholder of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which would be part of the investigation. -USA Today (12/16/02)

► BOARD OF DIRECTORS, FIDUCIARY TRUST COMPANY INTERNATIONAL
THOMAS H. KEAN: PRESIDENT, DREW UNIVERSITY AND FORMER GOVERNOR, NJ

► "Ellen Kratzer, an investment advisor who worked near the top of the World Trade Center's south tower, returned to work yesterday morning, at her firm's "business resumption centre" in New Jersey.
More than 100 people are missing from her firm, Fiduciary Trust Co. International, yet she and her colleagues were phoning clients to let them know business is continuing. These are wealthy investors with a lot at stake -- Fiduciary's average client family has more than US$10-million in assets." -Raven Investment (9/15/01)

One interesting note about Ann Tatlock is that she is a trustee of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) along with former Secretary of State and current Carlyle Group advisor James A. Baker III who's law firm, Baker Botts LLP, is defending Saudi Arabia against the trillion dollar lawsuit filed by the families of 9/11 victims. HHMI also employed Don C. Wiley, one of the dozen distinguished microbiologists that have mysteriously died within five months of each other shortly after 9/11.

► "Anne M. Tatlock, chairman and chief executive officer of Fiduciary Trust Company International, has been elected a trustee of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI)." -HHMI (1/25/01)
"James A. Baker III, secretary of state under George Bush and secretary of the treasury under Ronald Reagan, has been elected a Trustee of HHMI.
Baker is a senior partner in the law firm of Baker & Botts." -HHMI (2/01/96)

HHMI Trustees

► August 16, 2002 - The families of 9/11 victims launch a trillion dollar lawsuit against Saudi Arabia who is being defended by former Secretary of State James A. Baker's law firm Baker Botts LLP. - See Killtown's 9/11 Oddities page

► The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) today announced that it is offering a $15,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and charge of anyone connected to the disappearance of Dr. Don C. Wiley, an HHMI investigator at Harvard University.
Wiley, a distinguished structural biologist who has been an HHMI employee since 1987..." -HHMI (11/30/01)

► The disappearance of a Harvard molecular biologist has baffled authorities and sparked some suspicion that he was abducted to create a lethal biological weapon.
Don Wiley was last seen Nov. 15, when he attended a banquet at The Peabody hotel in Memphis, Tenn. Wiley lived in Cambridge, Mass.
Newspapers in Boston raised suspicions that Wiley was the victim of a terrorist-related kidnapping because of recent anthrax scares, fears of bioterrorism, and the fact that he is an expert on human immunology and has studied viruses such as AIDS, Ebola, herpes and influenza. -ABC (11/27/01)

► "A body carrying the identification of a missing Harvard University scientist was found today in the Mississippi River in Louisiana, police said.
Wiley had done research into a number of potentially deadly viruses, including Ebola. Ebola is a hemorrhagic fever that causes body fluids to seep from tissues and orifices. The virus is highly contagious and lethal, and there is no vaccine." -ABC (12/20/01)

► "Eleven microbiologists mysteriously dead over the span of just five months. Some of them world leaders in developing weapons-grade biological plagues. Others the best in figuring out how to stop millions from dying because of biological weapons. Still others, experts in the theory of bioterrorism." - Globe and Mail (5/04/02)

So who is Warren Buffett and what does he do?

Funny that Mr. Buffett was hosting a charity event, because it's been reported that he's a real "tightwad" and not very charitable...

► "By many he is considered to be a real tightwad (or cheap). This is mainly because despite his $36 Billion net worth he has not been particularly charitable." -Investopedia.com

Now if Warren Buffett hosting a "charity event" at the U.S. Strategic Commander headquarters on 9/11 in which one of the invited guests was a CEO who's offices were where the 2nd hijacked plane crashed into at the WTC and that the head of the 9/11 investigation used to be the director of her company doesn't raise an eyebrow or two, then maybe the following little tidbits will.

Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. has a subsidiary company called NetJets...

► BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY INC. Subsidiary Companies: NetJets®

► NetJets Inc. (Formerly Executive Jet)
NETJETS INC AND BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY
In 1995, world-renowned financier Warren Buffett purchased his first fractional share in the NetJets® program. Three-and-a-half years later, Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway purchased NetJets Inc.

"As a NetJets fractional aircraft Owner, I had Three-and-a-half years to examine the service of NetJets before Berkshire Hathaway purchased NetJets Inc. We knew we were purchasing the premier provider of aviation solutions in the world. And you can quote me to the world on that."
- WARREN BUFFETT, Chairman and CEO Berkshire Hathaway Inc.

The NetJets Fleet

Oddly enough, a NetJets executive company jet was "tracking" Flight 93 when it crashed in an open field in Shanksville, PA.

► "Additional recordings would be played from the cockpit of an executive jet that tracked Flight 93 on Sept. 11...
An official for NetJets, a company that sells shares in private business aircraft, confirmed that the plane tracking Flight 93 belonged to the company.
The official, who asked not to be identified by name, said the company was asked not to comment on the Sept. 11 flight but would not say who made the request." -Holland Sentinel/AP (8/09/02)

Now why was an executive jet owned by one of Warren Buffett's companies "tracking" Flight 93 instead of a military jet try to intercept it?
More interesting is that fact that Flight 93 was rumored to have been shot down (in which the U.S. Government vehemently denies) and that a number of witnesses claimed to have seen a "mysterious small white jet" in the same area that Flight 93 was before it crashed in which the FBI claimed there was no other plane in the area and then changed it's story and said there was one, but it was just "taking pictures" of the crash.

► "Responding to persistent rumors that have circulated around the nation, the North American Aerospace Defense Command disputed accounts yesterday that U.S. military aircraft shot down United Airlines Flight 93 in Somerset County.
"Contrary to media reports that speculate that United Airlines Flight 93 was 'downed' by a U.S. fighter aircraft, NORAD-allocated forces have not engaged with weapons [on] any aircraft, including Flight 93."
"There was no military involvement here. I hope that ends that speculation," FBI agent Bill Crowley told reporters yesterday during an afternoon briefing at the crash site.
Asked if there were any military aircraft flying in the vicinity of Flight 93 or activated in response to the hijacking of the plane, Capt. Adriane Craig, a NORAD spokeswoman, declined comment." -Post-Gazette (9/14/01)

► Dennis Decker and Rick Chaney - "As soon as we looked up, we saw a midsized jet flying low and fast," Decker said. "It appeared to make a loop or part of a circle, and then it turned fast and headed out." Decker and Chaney described the plane as a Lear-jet type, with engines mounted near the tail and painted white with no identifying markings. -The Bergen Record (9/14/01)
Susan Mcelwain, 51 - "It came right over me, I reckon just 40 or 50ft above my mini-van," she recalled.
"There's no way I imagined this plane - it was so low it was virtually on top of me. It was white with no markings but it was definitely military, it just had that look.
"It had two rear engines, a big fin on the back like a spoiler on the back of a car and with two upright fins at the side. I haven't found one like it on the internet. It definitely wasn't one of those executive jets. The FBI came and talked to me and said there was no plane around."
"Then they changed their story and tried to say it was a plane taking pictures of the crash 3,000ft up."
"But I saw it and it was there before the crash and it was 40ft above my head. They did not want my story - nobody here did."
"She said her husband had called her that morning and said 'I can't talk, but we've just shot a plane down,' " Susan said. "I presumed they meant Flight 93." -Daily Mirror (9/13/02)

► "Earlier Thursday, FBI Special Agent William Crowley said investigators could not rule out that a second plane was nearby during the crash. He later said he had misspoken. He dismissed rumors that a U.S. military jet had intercepted the plane before it could strike a target in Washington, D.C. In testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, President Bush's nominee for chairman of the joint chiefs of staff rejected rumors that the military had shot down the hijacked plane.
"The armed forces did not shoot down any aircraft," Air Force Gen. Richard Myers said." -The Bergen Record (9/14/01)

For more about the mystery surrounding Flight 93, see "Was Flight 93 shot down?"

Mr. Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. also has a subsidiary company called FlightSafety International Inc., a flight training school ...

► BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY INC. Subsidiary Companies: FlightSafety

► FlightSafety International Inc.
"FlightSafety International is the world's largest provider of aviation services, training over 65,000 pilots annually at 42 Learning Centers in the U.S., Canada, France, and the U.K."

Flight Safety was also selected by Raytheon as its subcontractor providing the Ground Based Training System for the Joint Primary Aircraft Training System (JPATS) used by the US Air Force and navy for primary pilot training.

FlightSafety International Inc. is reported to have trained one of the alleged 9/11 hijackers...

Wiley, one of the dozen distinguished microbiologists that have mysteriously died within five months of each other shortly after 9/11.

► "Anne M. Tatlock, chairman and chief executive officer of Fiduciary Trust Company International, has been elected a trustee of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI)." -HHMI (1/25/01)
"James A. Baker III, secretary of state under George Bush and secretary of the treasury under Ronald Reagan, has been elected a Trustee of HHMI.
Baker is a senior partner in the law firm of Baker & Botts." -HHMI (2/01/96)

HHMI Trustees

► The Carlyle Group - James A. Baker III

► August 16, 2002 - The families of 9/11 victims launch a trillion dollar lawsuit against Saudi Arabia who is being defended by former Secretary of State James A. Baker's law firm Baker Botts LLP. - See Killtown's 9/11 Oddities page

► The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) today announced that it is offering a $15,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and charge of anyone connected to the disappearance of Dr. Don C. Wiley, an HHMI investigator at Harvard University.
Wiley, a distinguished structural biologist who has been an HHMI employee since 1987..." -HHMI (11/30/01)

► The disappearance of a Harvard molecular biologist has baffled authorities and sparked some suspicion that he was abducted to create a lethal biological weapon.
Don Wiley was last seen Nov. 15, when he attended a banquet at The Peabody hotel in Memphis, Tenn. Wiley lived in Cambridge, Mass.
Newspapers in Boston raised suspicions that Wiley was the victim of a terrorist-related kidnapping because of recent anthrax scares, fears of bioterrorism, and the fact that he is an expert on human immunology and has studied viruses such as AIDS, Ebola, herpes and influenza. -ABC (11/27/01)

► "A body carrying the identification of a missing Harvard University scientist was found today in the Mississippi River in Louisiana, police said.
Wiley had done research into a number of potentially deadly viruses, including Ebola. Ebola is a hemorrhagic fever that causes body fluids to seep from tissues and orifices. The virus is highly contagious and lethal, and there is no vaccine." -ABC (12/20/01)

► "Eleven microbiologists mysteriously dead over the span of just five months. Some of them world leaders in developing weapons-grade biological plagues. Others the best in figuring out how to stop millions from dying because of biological weapons. Still others, experts in the theory of bioterrorism." - Globe and Mail (5/04/02)

Funny that Mr. Buffett was hosting a charity event, because it's been reported that he's a real "tightwad" and not very charitable...

► "By many he is considered to be a real tightwad (or cheap). This is mainly because despite his $36 Billion net worth he has not been particularly charitable." -Investopedia.com

Now if Warren Buffett hosting a "charity event" at the U.S. Strategic Commander headquarters on 9/11 in which one of the invited guests was a CEO who's offices were where the 2nd hijacked plane crashed into at the WTC and that the head of the 9/11 investigation used to be the director of her company doesn't raise an eyebrow or two, then maybe the following little tidbits will.

Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. has a subsidiary company called NetJets...

► BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY INC. Subsidiary Companies: NetJets®

► NetJets Inc. (Formerly Executive Jet)
NETJETS INC AND BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY
In 1995, world-renowned financier Warren Buffett purchased his first fractional share in the NetJets® program. Three-and-a-half years later, Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway purchased NetJets Inc.

"As a NetJets fractional aircraft Owner, I had Three-and-a-half years to examine the service of NetJets before Berkshire Hathaway purchased NetJets Inc. We knew we were purchasing the premier provider of aviation solutions in the world. And you can quote me to the world on that."
- WARREN BUFFETT, Chairman and CEO Berkshire Hathaway Inc.

The NetJets Fleet

Oddly enough, a NetJets executive company jet was "tracking" Flight 93 when it crashed in an open field in Shanksville, PA.

► "Additional recordings would be played from the cockpit of an executive jet that tracked Flight 93 on Sept. 11...
An official for NetJets, a company that sells shares in private business aircraft, confirmed that the plane tracking Flight 93 belonged to the company.
The official, who asked not to be identified by name, said the company was asked not to comment on the Sept. 11 flight but would not say who made the request." -Holland Sentinel/AP (8/09/02)

Now why was an executive jet owned by one of Warren Buffett's companies "tracking" Flight 93 instead of a military jet try to intercept it?
More interesting is that fact that Flight 93 was rumored to have been shot down (in which the U.S. Government vehemently denies) and that a number of witnesses claimed to have seen a "mysterious small white jet" in the same area that Flight 93 was before it crashed in which the FBI claimed there was no other plane in the area and then changed it's story and said there was one, but it was just "taking pictures" of the crash.

► "Responding to persistent rumors that have circulated around the nation, the North American Aerospace Defense Command disputed accounts yesterday that U.S. military aircraft shot down United Airlines Flight 93 in Somerset County.
"Contrary to media reports that speculate that United Airlines Flight 93 was 'downed' by a U.S. fighter aircraft, NORAD-allocated forces have not engaged with weapons [on] any aircraft, including Flight 93."
"There was no military involvement here. I hope that ends that speculation," FBI agent Bill Crowley told reporters yesterday during an afternoon briefing at the crash site.
Asked if there were any military aircraft flying in the vicinity of Flight 93 or activated in response to the hijacking of the plane, Capt. Adriane Craig, a NORAD spokeswoman, declined comment." -Post-Gazette (9/14/01)

► Dennis Decker and Rick Chaney - "As soon as we looked up, we saw a midsized jet flying low and fast," Decker said. "It appeared to make a loop or part of a circle, and then it turned fast and headed out." Decker and Chaney described the plane as a Lear-jet type, with engines mounted near the tail and painted white with no identifying markings. -The Bergen Record (9/14/01)
Susan Mcelwain, 51 - "It came right over me, I reckon just 40 or 50ft above my mini-van," she recalled.
"There's no way I imagined this plane - it was so low it was virtually on top of me. It was white with no markings but it was definitely military, it just had that look.
"It had two rear engines, a big fin on the back like a spoiler on the back of a car and with two upright fins at the side. I haven't found one like it on the internet. It definitely wasn't one of those executive jets. The FBI came and talked to me and said there was no plane around."
"Then they changed their story and tried to say it was a plane taking pictures of the crash 3,000ft up."
"But I saw it and it was there before the crash and it was 40ft above my head. They did not want my story - nobody here did."
"She said her husband had called her that morning and said 'I can't talk, but we've just shot a plane down,' " Susan said. "I presumed they meant Flight 93." -Daily Mirror (9/13/02)

► "Earlier Thursday, FBI Special Agent William Crowley said investigators could not rule out that a second plane was nearby during the crash. He later said he had misspoken. He dismissed rumors that a U.S. military jet had intercepted the plane before it could strike a target in Washington, D.C. In testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, President Bush's nominee for chairman of the joint chiefs of staff rejected rumors that the military had shot down the hijacked plane.
"The armed forces did not shoot down any aircraft," Air Force Gen. Richard Myers said." -The Bergen Record (9/14/01)

Mr. Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. also has a subsidiary company called FlightSafety International Inc., a flight training school ...

► BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY INC. Subsidiary Companies: FlightSafety

► FlightSafety International Inc.
"FlightSafety International is the world's largest provider of aviation services, training over 65,000 pilots annually at 42 Learning Centers in the U.S., Canada, France, and the U.K."

Flight Safety was also selected by Raytheon as its subcontractor providing the Ground Based Training System for the Joint Primary Aircraft Training System (JPATS) used by the US Air Force and navy for primary pilot training.

FlightSafety International Inc. is reported to have trained one of the alleged 9/11 hijackers...
