It would have taken 6 months, lights, some 800 people, and a large presence to have the possibility to pull that off. But the catch is it would have been found out in a NY minute. 9/11 was not an inside job. We literally got caught with our pants down. Many of the things we see today is what IATA, the International Aviation Transportation Association was wanting in the US for years. Europe listened. Asia listened. Oh hell, even South America listened. We were complacent because we thought the two great oceans would protect us. Those "terrorist attacks" in hijacking planes would never occur here. At that time, the assault weapons ban was still in effect, and gun sales were not sold in the same manner as today. Most people felt safe even though they can walk up to the gate and all and not have a boarding pass. All 19 men came through Canada. The student visa program had serious loopholes in it that were exposed. And no one thought the unthinkable. the military never trained for this scenario. So I can see that as a legitimate question either by the FAA or NORAD. The playbook was for terrorists to take over and demand some sort of ransom, and so forth. They did not do that. They changed the rules and used those new rules against us. But the statement you are referring to is not what it appears to be in your way of thinking.
