Military Non-Response

The non-response of the military to defend against the attack was immediately noticed by people who understood something about the United States' air defense network.

Sites Exposing Stand-Down

site and descriptionformatfocus
StandDown.net
This approximately 20-page document describing the stand-down by the air defense system on September 11th is the work of Mark Elsis.
expository document with supporting pagesstand-down
OilEmpire.us
This site has a great deal relating to the apparent stand-down, including a page on the stand-down, and a page on the war games before and during the attack.
original essays with abundant excerpts and illustrationsmotive, complicity, peak oil
911Dossier.co.uk
This was once a well organized site with a reasonably good analysis of the military non-response. Now it pushes the book 9/11 Revealed whose purpose seems to be to surreptitiously reinforce the official story by promoting hoaxes and strategically avoiding strong evidence of official complicity.

Why did a Civilian Air Traffic Controller do a Better Job of Defending the Skies on 9/11 than NORAD?
This article points out that, whereas there is ample evidence that NORAD was "aware" that Flight 77 was approaching the Pentagon, they failed to scramble any planes, whereas a C-130 was notified, not by the military but by a civilian air traffic controller, to intercept the jetliner.
