From this collection are the following questions: Who has been and why the interceptor from Langley sent across the Atlantic? It was Washington, like New York with the Jets Otis, defenseless. Why was the President not immediately brought to safety and he stayed for 30 minutes in the school schedule? Why had so many of the government members at the hour of the attack foreboding, which it would still happen, but then when they said we had no Vorwarnungen, knew of nothing and therefore could not prevent the attack? Why did it take to 9:28 CNN has the information, the perpetrators are terrorists, although no evidence existed to spark? Finally, it was up to this moment clueless, but suddenly knew everything. Was that the beginning of the legend in the public laid, and there were angry Arab Islamists?
