When someone is hell-bent on crashing a plane into a geographically fixed point, distraction ain't gonna work.

So are you are saying that our air defense did right by merely watching from the ground Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon?

No, I'm saying that the only way you were going to stop that bird was to have the interceptor pilot ram it.

I'm not the sort of guy to sit in a comfy command and control bunker and tell some young hotshot to commit suicide. I'd have to strap on an airplane and do it myself.
