Big Scoop. The Pentagon lied to the 9/11 commission. â€œMaj. Gen. Larry Arnold and Col. Alan Scott told the commission that NORAD had begun tracking United 93 at 9:16 a.m., but the commission determined that the airliner was not hijacked until 12 minutes later. The military was not aware of the flight until after it had crashed in Pennsylvania.â€ I guess the panel â€œdebated referring the matter to the Justice Department for criminal investigationâ€œ but opted to pass a note to the inspectors general of the Transportation and Defense depts. Better idea: letâ€™s conduct the next investigation of Maj. Gen. Arnold and Col. Scott at GITMO.
