Matt Drudge being leaned on?

Less than 6 hours ago, I looked at the homepage of the Drudge Report.

I was stunned to see a piece saying that NORAD used to practice exercises involving the scenario that has since become all too familiar to us: hijackers using a jumbo jet as a missile. Remember how the US administration's official line has been all along that there was no reasonable evidence such a credible threat to America existed before 9/11?

I didn't have time to look at the report in detail so mentally logged it for later use. Well, I just looked again at the Drudge Report. It's hardly changed, apart from the fact that this report is now nowhere to be found.

Strange, eh? Especially as it was in bright red just 6 hours ago so somebody must have thought it worth highlighting.

In the meantime, have a look at these.

Oh, and don't forget that security moves for the G-8 Summit in July 2001 included shutting down Genoa airspace after a threat was received about hijackers crashing a plane into the summit.

After you're done with that lot, why not enjoy Marty's NORAD Cam?
