Cheney admits that he lied about 9/11

Dick Cheney liar

The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd writes today:

In a documentary soon to appear on Showtime, “The World According to Dick Cheney,” [Cheney said] “I got on the telephone with the president, who was in Florida, and told him not to be at one location where we could both be taken out.” Mr. Cheney kept W. flying aimlessly in the air on 9/11 while he and Lynn left on a helicopter for a secure undisclosed location, leaving Washington in a bleak, scared silence, with no one reassuring the nation in those first terrifying hours.

“I gave the instructions that we’d authorize our pilots to take it out,” he says, referring to the jet headed to Washington that crashed in a Pennsylvania field. He adds: “After I’d given the order, it was pretty quiet. Everybody had heard it, and it was obviously a significant moment.”

When they testified together before the 9/11 Commission, W. and Mr. Cheney kept up a pretense that in a previous call, the president had authorized the vice president to give a shoot-down order if needed. But the commission found “no documentary evidence for this call.”

In other words, Cheney pretended that Bush had authorized a shoot-down order, but Cheney now admits that he never did. In fact, Cheney acted as if he was the president on 9/11. *

Cheney lied about numerous other facts related to 9/11 as well. For example, Cheney:

 

* Indeed, Cheney initiated Continuity of Government plans on 9/11 which essentially nullified America’s constitutional form of government.

  1. Cheney: the chicken-hawk *coward* who deferred military service on 4 separate occasions because he had “other priorities”.

    Cheney: the man who co-signed the notorious PNAC document on September 10, 2000 (Rebuilding America’s Defenses), that called for all-out war in the middle east, tripling the “defense” budget, putting weapons in space, and developing genetically engineered biological agents specifically targeting mid eastern (Arab) “ethnic genotypes”.

    Cheney: the man who organized no less than 20 simultaneous military drills and exercises on the morning of 9/11 that effective kept our air force interception jets away from the area which was under attack.

    Cheney: the man who lied to the 9/11 Commission regarding his whereabouts on the morning of 9/11, as witnessed by former Transportation Sec. Norman Mineta and many others.

    Cheney: the man who ordered the plane that hit the Pentagon not to be intercepted, when there was ample warning in advance.

    Cheney: the man who knew the Pentagon was about to bet hit, yet nobody issued a warning to Pentagon staff. Over 100 were killed on account of Cheney’s criminal negligence (at the very least).

    Cheney: the man who changed the rules regarding the protocol for plane interceptions in July 2001, which required that the default scramble procedure be authorized by the then Defense Sec. Rumsfeld. (The original working protocol was restored September 12, 2001).

    Cheney: The man who held Dubya’s hand to shield him from any awkward questions posed by the 9/11 Commission.

    Cheney: the man who lied about linking Iraq and the 9/11 attacks.

    Cheney: the man who lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

    Cheney: the man who authorized and supporting the detention and torture of people without charge.

    One would have thought that Cheney would have *loved* those 19 rookie kids who disabled the entire US military/security/intelligence apparatus that morning… they earned him, alongside Chjeney’s buddyboys in the war and oil sectors, vast fortunes from the programs and events that resulted from the 9/11 attacks.

    But hey, those who have digested only the corporate “weasel” media may knee-jerk about “conspiracy theories”. (Yawn). Such infantile responses can only come from the mouths of those who cannot handle having their comfort zones ruffled, or those who acknowledge that the laws of physics can be violated when it comes to blaming the “evil Muslims”. Such, since the end of WWII, has been a national sport, and since the fall of organized communism, has become a national obsession.

    How about we send that evil traitor to Guantanamo Bay… and yes, it would be fascinating to see if he likes being water boarded…..

  2. I really do hope one day, preferably soon, people will open there eyes and realise the TRUTH!

  3. Like they did to Mussolini. It is amazing that the u.s. is the world police and no-one says a thing.

  4. Indeed, this piece of shit should be tortured and then burned alive. Or upside-down crucify him in honor of his Lord and master – Satan.

  5. hang the him he was use his power to drag us in now use your power to hang him
