Cheney recalls taking charge from bunker
“WASHINGTON (CNN) — As horrified Americans watched the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, unfold on their television sets, Vice President Dick Cheney directed the U.S. government’s response from an emergency bunker.”
Cheney admits he gave the order to shoot down Flight 93
“You were the one that gave the direct order to shoot down a plane, that you were told, as it turns out INCORRECTLY was headed for Washington.”
Cheney’s response…… “Right, that’s correct”.
This is not proof that Flight 93 was shot down…. this is proof that Cheney was in charge of NORAD. Cause only someone in charge could give such an order.
Dick Cheney states that 9/11 achieved the goals of PNAC, “highest moment in office”
Trans. Sec Norman Mineta Testimony. Cheney “Stand down”
“During the time that the airplane was coming into the Pentagon, there was a young man who would come in and say to the Vice President…the plane is 50 miles out…the plane is 30 miles out….and when it got down to the plane is 10 miles out, the young man also said to the vice president “do the orders still stand?” And the Vice President turned and whipped his neck around and said “Of course the orders still stand, have you heard anything to the contrary!?”
“The flight you are referring to is the…..” – Lee Hamilton
“The flight that came into the Pentagon.” – Norman Mineta

9/11 WAR GAMES
9/11 WAR GAMES/DRILLS
9/11 WAR GAMES: Several different war game exercises were in play on the day of the attack. The limited public information on these exercises shows that they simulated the following events:
* Attacks on buildings using aircraft as missiles
* Attacks using toxic or infectious substances
These events are all elements of the actual attack, which involved four alleged hijackings, three jetliner crashes into buildings, and the toxic calamity at Ground Zero in the wake of the World Trade Center’s destruction.

NORAD had drills of jets as weapons
“WASHINGTON — In the two years before the Sept. 11 attacks, the North American Aerospace Defense Command conducted exercises simulating what the White House says was unimaginable at the time: hijacked airliners used as weapons to crash into targets and cause mass casualties.
One of the imagined targets was the World Trade Center. In another exercise, jets performed a mock shootdown over the Atlantic Ocean of a jet supposedly laden with chemical poisons headed toward a target in the United States. In a third scenario, the target was the Pentagon — but that drill was not run after Defense officials said it was unrealistic, NORAD and Defense officials say.”
