Plane violates airspace over President Bush's ranch

<snip>

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A small airplane twice flew into restricted airspace above President George W. Bush's Texas ranch in what the Secret Service decided was an inadvertent violation, a Secret Service spokeswoman said on Monday.

A spokesman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, said fighter jets were scrambled and intercepted the airplane on its second incursion. The pilot voluntarily landed at a nearby airport, the NORAD official said.

Can we go over this 9/11/01 thing one more time?

Highjack four commercial jetliners and divert and crash them in New York and Washington; NORAD stands down.

Inadvertently fly a small plane over the Pig Ranch; fighter jets scrambled and force down plane.

Jeez.... :grr:

3. You don't think that's perfectly
reasonable? ;-)

Seriously, I have never believed that NORAD couldn't have intercepted the 9/11 planes.

4. It's astonishing, really.
If I could ask whomever is in charge of the cosmos just one question, it would be, "What really happened with NORAD on September 11, 2001?"
