Just what we needed. Advice on keeping America safe from terrorists from the guy who made us less safe. It was on Dick Cheney's watch that the second worst terrorist attack occurred against the U.S. since the war of 1812 when the British burned down the White House.
Cheney said he was in his bunker at the Pentagon when we were attacked on 9/11. Former Transportation Secretary Norm Mineta said in public hearings on May 22 and 23, 2003:
Mineta: "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!??"
Cheney knew the plane was coming and was still unable to stop a commercial jet from taking out the Pentagon. Not a single shot was fired.
Now Cheney is lying to Americans: http://rawstory.com/blog/2009/05/cheney-lied-repeatedly-in-speech/
This guy should be tried for war crimes and people are taking his advice on how to keep America safe? If he couldn't do it when he knew we were under attack, why would anyone listen to his lies?
I don't actually believe the conspiracy theory set forth that day by the press or the Bush Administration. Steel buildings don't just melt and the Pentagon is capable of defending itself.
Any Cheney supporters want to have it out with me?
