    This conspiracy theory strikes me as something the so-called '911 Truther' types might fall for...... Or promote. So let's take a look at what was actually said (and what wasn't) in this video clip......

    What Cheney actually said in that clip is that IF a hijacked plane was headed for a pri one target such as the White House or the Capital Building and when contacted, the pilot failed to change course (divert)...... The President had authorised our fighter jets to shoot it down. And he (Cheney) passed that order on to the military. Its SOP in such instances.

    No one shot down Flight 93. The terrorist piloting that plane dove it into the ground when passengers rushed the cockpit to take control of the plane from the terrorists. Several passengers were in constant contact with family and friends by cell phone throughout the terrorist takeover of Flight 93 and we know what happened aboard the plane. It was purposely crashed. No US fighter aircraft nearby.

    No fan of Cheney, but he did what he was supposed to in this case and as it happened, Flight 93 was crashed by the terrorists before our fighter planes had occasion to intercept it.

    I would fault Cheney for not correcting Chris Wallace up front for editorializing and claiming that whatever plane they were discussing was not headed in the direction of Washington, DC. Partisan media types routinely preface their loaded 'questions' with statements (propaganda, partisan talking points) they wish the public to accept. And neither former President Bush nor Dick Cheney were inclined to take them to task when they pulled stuff like that. Next day, the media were taking sound clips and misrepresenting them to the public. Happens all the time. Still
    drives me up the wall.

    As far as that goes...... Flight 93 was never specifically mentioned by either Cheney nor Wallace in this sound clip at all. They could have been discussing any number of planes, some of which were actually contacted by our fighter aircraft in flight and diverted that day.

    Best regards to all,
