Bulding in sky. Plane in sky. They could meet. has received a copy of a letter sent to the Manhattan Borough President's office Helicopter Task Force in 1996 warning about the dangers of the possibility that planes could hit buildings in downtown New York. Moreover, four active duty and retired Coast Guard, including a retired Commandant, concurred about concerns about planes hitting buildings. The letter, dated February 18, 1996, provides the response of four Coast Guard officers to the following question: "Because of the flight path and the huge volume of tour and other flights and the resulting confusion in the air, wouldn't it be easy for a terrorist helicopter to slip under 1200 feet escaping radar detection and drop a charge on the U.N., World Trade Center or other strategic building?"

The four Coast Guard officers responded:

"Yes, your concerns are well founded. It's a security risk."

"You're right. There's a possibility of a terrorist attack."

"Your analysis is correct."

"Yes. It should be a no fly zone like Washington."

This information that the US Coast Guard considered such a scenario makes Condoleezza Rice's comment on May 15, 2003 that "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center," a blatant falsehood.
