9/11 War Games

2018, 9/11  -   5 Comments

Clear, blue skies greeted air travelers on the morning of September 11, 2001. But those skies were more heavily trafficked than we were originally led to believe, according to the documentary 9/11 War Games. Produced by the conspiracy-minded Corbett Report, the film assumes a unique perspective for those who question the official account of that tragic date.

Before the attacks began to unfurl, there were an unprecedented number of aviation tests, military drills and emergency simulations taking place. Some were eerily similar to the terrorist attacks that would grip the country later that morning. In spite of the incessant denials that followed in the months and years following 9/11, the film argues that military forces were well aware of the potential of such an attack, and were active in preparing for such a nightmare scenario.

The evidence presented in the film expose how the government was well aware of the specific threats in the lead up to 9/11. Documents and taped recordings show multiple military drills mounted by the North American Defense Command (NORAD), including those involving hijacked airplanes, coordinated attacks from multiple planes, and even a scenario that used an aircraft as a weapon in the heart of the Pentagon.

The theory? The real plot of terror was piggybacked off some of these simulated war games. While much of the blame fell on the FAA, the prevention of these attacks was actually hindered by an inability to decipher between the manufactured exercises and the real world tragedy. The terrorist cell was likely aware of such exercises, and used them to their advantage.

Taken to the extreme, the film theorizes that members of NORAD, the US military and the National Command Authority were themselves complicit in these attacks, and the confusion between simulation and reality was an intentional and strategic stage from which they could operate most effectively.

Viewers who have an intolerance for conspiracy-themed material, especially as it pertains to the events of September 11, might find some of the film’s thesis offensive. But for others, 9/11 War Games may serve as a provocative, well assembled argument for greater transparency.

    This would have been a better documentary if the authors would have skipped the final part. The documentary demonstrated why the response to the hijackings seemed to be lacking, at best.

    The fact that war games were planned for 9/11 should come as no surprise. Some military official likely had the same idea as the terrorists; let's do it on 9/11, you know like 911 emergency response, get it? Not so much of a coincidence after all.

    Try checking out Showtimes documentary on this which will show you you're wrong. This doc is at least 5yrs old and it shows Rice and the rest of the swamp knew this type of attack could happen. Rice is the one who is to blame. Her ego was the reason she wouldn't listen and the reason so many died that day.

    ..this seems a little late (this documentary), all essential questions have been thoroughly answered and explained, by numerous skilled and courageous investigators...
    The danger to the power establishment as a result, is incalculable though...

    People choose to bury their heads in the sand rather than face very uncomfortable questions raised about their government, This is why these scenarios keep being successful :(
