This doesn't really have anything to do with cannabis, but a Libertarian colleague of mine raised a good question and I am looking for some input on this. When golf professional Payne Stewart's plane went off course and did not respond, 4 fighter jets were scrambled in 12 minutes. They reported back that the windows were frozen and they knew the cabin lost pressure. This was a very sad day for me because Payne was the only golfer I followed. I quit watching golf on that day. The question though is if 4 fighter jets could be scrambled in 12 minutes, why were there no fighter jets scrambled on September 11th, 2001? There were 4 commercial airbusses that went off course and did not respond. One of them went from Dulles in Washington,D.C. all the way to Cleveland and then crashed in Pennsylvania. There were passengers on cell phones communicating with people on the ground about the situation on board. This one in particular was in the air for over 2 hours. I have an idea on this one, but I wanted to post this in several places and get all the input I can. Thanks in advance for responding.
