I just ran across a VERY INTERESTING piece of information relative to the
NORAD intercept capabilities and procedures in place on 9/11.

The 1999 Air National Guard Outstanding Airman of the year was
honored for his superb operational expertise and situational awareness in the co-ordination of aircraft control responsibilities while conducting EFFECTIVE INTERCEPT MISSIONS!

He was responsible for tracking aircraft WITHIN THE WESTERN AIR DEFENSE SECTOR AIRSPACE ( the Mississippi to the west coast) and directing INTERCEPTORS
during exercises such as FELIX SPADE 98-12.
These "exercises" included 46 no-notice penetrations by simulated enemy aircraft requiring SCRAMBLE/INTERCEPTS!

How did Popular Mechanics miss this one?
How come the 9/11 Commission never talked to this guy?
What do these people not understand about the word INTERCEPT?
