DID CHENEY ALLOW OR ORDER 9/11 PLANE TO STRIKE PENTAGON? March 2, 2007

March 3, 2007 | By Sherwood Ross

Although the official 9/11 Commission Report(CR) said Vice President Richard Cheney did not arrive at the Presidential Emergency Operations Center(PEOC) under the White House until “shortly before 10 a.m.” that tragic day, Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta testified when he arrived in the room at 9:20 a.m. Cheney was already there. (CR published no testimony from Mineta.)

The timeline is important because if Cheney arrived at 10 a.m. it would have been about 20 minutes after the Pentagon was allegedly struck by a hijacked airplane at 9:38 a.m., too late for him to authorize the Air Force to shoot it down. Some 125 Pentagon employees perished in the attack.

Mineta testified “during the time that the airplane was coming in to 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 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…said, ‘Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?”

Since the airplane was not intercepted and destroyed, even though the vice president knew of it, “the orders” may have been to allow the plane to hit the Pentagon. All of this, and more, is contained in the March/April issue of “Tikkun” magazine, “a bimonthly Jewish critique of Politics, Culture & Society.” The piece was authored by Dr. David Ray Griffin, a principal debunker of the accepted 9/11 dogma, and published by Rabbi Michael Lerner on grounds, “if his view is true, the position he articulates would provide adequate grounds for impeachment of the president…”

In Griffin’s view, “the strike on the Pentagon was orchestrated by forces within our own government.” If he’s right, 9/11 was, indeed, the crime of the century, and what has been called a false flag operation involving the fabrication of evidence to make it appear the Taliban government of Afghanistan was complicit, paving the road for invasion.

To begin with, there’s even a question of whether American Airlines Flight 77 under control of Al-Qaeda hijacker Hani Hanjour struck the Pentagon. It would require, Griffin charges, not only outfoxing military radar for over an hour but the quite miraculous performance of descending 7,000 feet in two minutes while executing a 270-degree banked turn and bashing into the Pentagon without touching or damaging the lawn, a feat of aeronautical magic.

Griffin, a professor of philosophy and theology at Claremont Graduate University, Calif., says the impact of the strike, unlike those of the two planes that struck the Twin Towers, did not create a dectactable seismic signal. “Also, according to photographs and eywitnesses, the kind of damage and debris that would have been produced by the impact of a Boeing 757 was not evident in the aftermath of the strike on the Pentagon.”

Karen Kwiatkowski, then an Air Force Lieutenant Colonel employed at the Pentagon, writes of “a strange lack of visibile debris on the Pentagon lawn, where I stood only moments after the impact.” Another witness was CNN’s Jamie McIntyre, who reported live from the Pentagon that day: “The only pieces left that you can see are small enough that you pick up in your hand.” (How does that square with any photos you’ve ever seen of crashed airliners?)
Griffin also quotes retired pilot Ralph Omholt, discussing the photographic evidence, who said, “There is no hole big enough to swallow a 757… There is no viable evidence of burning jet fuel… The expected ‘crash’ damage doesn’t exist…Even the Pentagon lawn was undamaged!” So it may have been more than just a slip of the tongue when Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld blurted about the “missile” that hit the Pentagon.

The CR report alleged there was no warning of an unidentified aircraft heading to Washington until 9:36 a.m., only “one or two minutes” before the Pentagon was struck, yet Mineta said Cheney knew of it at least 10 minutes earlier, time to order an evacuation.
“By omitting Mineta’s testimony and stating that Cheney did not enter the PEOC until almost 10 a.m., the 9/11 Commission implied that Cheney could not have given a stand-down order to allow an aircraft to strike the Pentagon,” Griffin writes. [read more]
