Doubt On 9/11 Shootdown Order
Comment: This makes Cheney's 'the orders still stand' comment when he was in the White House bunker all the more interesting. If Cheney didn't have the authority to shoot down the plane, what else could the order have been but to let it find its target?
Vice President Dick Cheney may not have had the proper authority to issue orders to shoot down commercial aircraft on Sept. 11, according to a new account of the deadly day.
The account in Vanity Fair magazine is partly based on interviews with some staff and members of the 9/11 commission who raise doubts about whether the vice president had received the shootdown authority from President Bush before he gave the order.
On Sept. 11, Cheney at about 10:15 a.m. gave the green light to fighter aircraft to shoot down a commercial plane that seemed headed toward D.C. and which officials feared might have been hijacked and headed toward a target.
