In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, it was revealed that on 9/11, the U.S. Military’s Norad Airforce Division had been running a series of war games that simulated airplane hijackings and other terrorist attacks.
The US Military 9/11 War Games were conducted by the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and the United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM).
These US Military’s 9/11 Norad War games were conducted on the very same day and at the very same time as the 9/11 attacks.
The war games were designed to test the U.S. government’s response to a terrorist attack. Some of the war games involved simulated airplane hijackings, while others tested responses to bioterrorism and cyberterrorism attacks.
The US Military’s Norad war games involved the use of live aircraft and also simulated attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
This particular war game began at 8:30 a.m., just an hour before the first plane hit the World Trade Center on 9/11.
NORAD is responsible for the defense of North America against air and space attacks.
Both NORAD and USSTRATCOM have denied that their exercises had any connection to the events of September 11, 2001.
How did the 9/11 War Games affect the events of September 11th, 2001?
The main effect of the 9/11 War Games is that they caused confusion among air traffic controllers which led to delays in scrambling fighter jets to intercept the hijacked planes that eventually attacked the World Trade Centre and Pentagon on 9/11.
Ultimately, the war games may have distracted attention from the real-world events unfolding on September 11th and it has been suggested by some commentators like James Corbertt that the US Military Norad 9/11 War Games were a deliberate diversion meant to delay response to the Terrorist attack in order to ensure that the 9/11 attacks would successfully provoke the War On Terror which followed in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks as part of the US Military Industrial Complex Agenda.
However, it is also still possible that the US Military’s 9/11 War Games may have been just another routine NORAD training exercise.
