The Wargame Limited Hangout
Team8plus has some very interesting insights into this story and the WaPo story in the previous post.
Also, the Vanity Fair story casts doubt on whether flight 11 was what crashed into WTC1:
DOOLEY (to Boston): Master Sergeant Dooley here. We need to have—are you giving confirmation that American 11 was the one—BOSTON CENTER (Scoggins): No, we're not gonna confirm that at this time. We just know an aircraft crashed in and …DOOLEY: You—are you—can you say—is anyone up there tracking primary on this guy still?BOSTON CENTER (Scoggins): No. The last [radar sighting] we have was about 15 miles east of J.F.K., or eight miles east of J.F.K. was our last primary hit. He did slow down in speed. The primary that we had, it slowed down below—around to 300 knots.DOOLEY: And then you lost 'em?BOSTON CENTER (Scoggins): Yeah, and then we lost 'em.PLAY | STOP
The problem, Scoggins told me later, was that American Airlines refused to confirm for several hours that its plane had hit the tower.
