A story published by World Net Daily based on an interview with a “senior Pentagon official” that specializes in counter-terrorism stated that the Defense Department did in fact consider scenarios that included “Islamic fundamentalist martyrs” crashing planes into buildings. The official said they did not install anti-aircraft batteries because of the cost, and risk to civilian airliners landing and taking off from Reagan National Airport.

This is in spite of what many Bush appointees (including Bush himself) said about no one ever considered terrorist hijacking planes and hitting targets with them.

Article also states that while the Pentagon does not have anti-aircraft batteries the White House does.

A investigation found that over 250 workers (civilian and military even including highest level security) working at the Pentagon were found to be buying and downloading child porn onto their work computers.

This was a subset of 5,000 Americans found by a government probe of people paying for and downloading child porn. This means that of all the people found in this probe 5% was from the pentagon. Many more of the 5,000 had also been traced back to non-pentagon military persons.

The Department of Defense cross referenced the 5,000 with it’s databases and found that it also contained members of the Department of Defense, the National Security Agency (NSA), and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

The government only processed 20 percent of the claims, and prosecuted only 10 people.

The Upshot article states that these people would be vulnerable to blackmail, which is probably the main reason the government is not firing and/or prosecuting every child porn pervert on that list.
