United States Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta Confirms Cheney's Complicity In 9/11
Norman Mineta served in the President's Cabinet as the United States Secretary of Transportation and was present with Vice Present Cheney on the morning of 9/11. Mineta's testimony contradicts the 9/11 Commission’s Report by revealing the fact that Cheney knew about the aircraft approaching the Pentagon long before the impact and reveals that Cheney upheld an order to stand down as also confirmed by Acting Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Richard Myers. Mineta's testimony was broadcast on C-Span however the governments rigged 9/11 Commission Report ignored the testimony and all the evidence you will find on this site and other 9/11 exposes.
9/11 Commission Hearing Testimony:
MR. HAMILTON: We thank you for that. I wanted to focus just a moment on the Presidential Emergency Operating Center. You were there for a good part of the day. I think you were there with the vice president. And when you had that order given, I think it was by the president, that authorized the shooting down of commercial aircraft that were suspected to be controlled by terrorists, were you there when that order was given?
MR. MINETA: No, I was not. I was made aware of it during the time that the airplane coming into the Pentagon. There was a young man who had come in and said 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?" Well, at the time I didn't know what all that meant. And --
MR. MINETA: I didn't know about the order to shoot down. I arrived at the PEOC at about 9:20 a.m. And the president was in Florida, and I believe he was on his way to Louisiana at that point when the conversation that went on between the vice president and the president and the staff that the president had with him.
MR. ROEMER: So when you arrived at 9:20, how much longer was it before you overheard the conversation between the young man and the vice president saying, "Does the order still stand?"
MR. MINETA: Probably about five or six minutes.
Acting Chief Of Staff Indicates Stand
Down Order Held Until After Missile Hit Pentagon
On September 13th, 2001, the Acting Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Richard Myers, was asked whether the order to scramble fighter jets had been given “before or after the Pentagon was struck.” Myers replied: “That order, to the best of my knowledge, was after the Pentagon was struck.”
- Andrews Air Force Base assigned to protect the Capital is 11 miles from Washington DC.
In the 1st nine months of 2001, the base scrambled jets 67 times to relatively minor incidents involving commercial airlines.
- Fighter jets travel at 1,500 miles per hour and routinely go from ‘scramble order’ to 29,000 feet in 2.5 minutes.
- Air National Guard's 177th Fighter Wing, Atlantic City International Airport in Pomona, 8 minutes from New York consistently maintains two F-16 fighters on the runway and pilots on 24 hour scramble standby. On 9/11 these standby F-16's were specially decommissioned.
- The first plane struck the WTC at 8:46 am (Alleged AA 11)
- The second plane struck the WTC at 9:03 am (Alleged UA )
- The missile struck the Pentagon at 9:38 am (Alleged AA 77)
Some time well before 8:46 am the FAA had reason to order the scrambling of fighter jets to intercept the alleged hijacked aircraft. At 8:46 am the FAA and NORAD had every reason to scramble interceptors and to shoot down any hijacked aricraft. By 9:03 most of the world knew America was "under attack". By 9:25am the FAA, in consultation with the Pentagon, had banned all takeoffs around the country and still had plenty of time to scramble interceptor jets to take out the missile aimed at the Pentagon. However, According to General Meyers & Mineta, Cheney's stand down order prevailed.
The FAA was aware of American Airlines Flight 77 hijack when it made
it's first unauthorized turn at 8:54 am, twelve minuets after the first
plane hit the towers. The FAA stated that AA 77's transponder was
turned off at 8:56. According to the 9/11 Commission Report: “At
9:29, the autopilot on American 77 was disengaged; the aircraft was at
7,000 feet and approximately 38 miles west of the Pentagon."
- The question we ask is how Arab hijackers with box cutters turned off flight transponders and programmed auto pilots to fly planes off course to 38 miles from the Pentagon? Furthermore, the aggressive flight path of the missile that hit the Pentagon confirmed the fact that no 757 flew into the Pentagon as did the wreckage and damage to the Pentagon.
Recordings of FAA flight controllers on 9/11 were confiscated and destroyed and the flight controllers were issued gag orders.
9/11 Commission records indicate that FAA flight controllers monitoring flights on 9/11 stated that American Airline 11 never struck the first tower as claimed. The Commission reports that the FAA scrambled aircraft after "Phantom" hijacked aircraft.
Detailed analysis of video taken of the second aircraft to hit the WTC indicate that it was likely a Military aircraft equipped with a 40ft Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System dome on the aircrafts underside. J-STARS is used for airborne battle management allowing the aircraft to be controlled remotely like a missile -see section on Dr. Dov S. Zakheim below.
Video analysis also reveals an explosion in the tower just prior to the aircraft hitting the second tower, either from a missile fired just prior to the aircraft hitting the tower or from explosives planted in the tower.
In May 2001, by Presidential Order, Richard Cheney was put in direct command and control all war game and field exercise training and scheduling exercises especially FEMA this also extended to all of the conflicting and overlapping NORAD exercises. Standard scramble and shoot down orders for hijacked aircraft were specifically removed from NORAD generals and placed in the exclusive control of Cheney.
On 9/11 Cheney was running the largest war-games exercises ever in
1. Northern Vigilance – mock cold war hijack
2. Vigilant Guardian – insertion of false radar blips on radar screens.
3. Vigilant Warrior – live fly hijack drill
The FAA had more than twenty 'hijacked aircraft" blips on their radar on 9/11. The diversion exercises Cheney ran on 9/11 ensured confusion when the missiles hit the WTC & Pentagon. It is also reported that Cheney ordered as many possible scramble fighter jets as he could to partake in exercises in Alaska so as to ensure the missiles were not shot down.
In June 2001, Vice President Cheney took charge of the Counterterrorism Task Force, but never convened a single meeting. Weeks before the first Anthrax attacks began, Dick Cheney’s staff were ordered to begin taking the Anthrax antibiotic Cipro.
The day before 9/11 Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld announced "According to some estimates we [The Pentagon] cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions," he went on to "declare war" stating "the adversary's closer to home. It's the Pentagon bureaucracy,".
The section of the Pentagon hit by the missile on 9/11 housed accountants, analysts, bookkeepers and The Budget Analyst Office covering the lost $2.3 trillion. The entire chain of command Office of Naval Intelligence and Budget/auditors investigating government corruption and who were also monitoring Cheney's War Game deceptions were killed by the missile that hit the Pentagon.
The individual in charge of the Pentagon's budget working with Rumsveld, Dr. Dov S. Zakheim, was also a PNAC member who co-authored the infamous PNAC "REBUILDING AMERICA’S DEFENSES" that called for "a new Pearl Harbor". The PNAC paper literally states "Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor." Dr. Zakheim served as the CEO of System Planning Corporation, Inc. whose CTS and FTS technology provided a "fully redundant turnkey range safety and test system for remote control and flight termination of airborne test vehicles" and "remote control and flight termination functions" see http://www.sysplan.com/Radar/CTS and FTS. His companies technology was perfect for flying the aircraft into the WTC and the missile into the Pentagon. Dr. Xakheim is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
John O’Neill, the FBI’s leading authority on Al Qaeda, who resigned from the FBI because of the repeated obstructions of his investigations into Al Quaeda by senior FBI management was offered a job as head of security for the World Trade Center by Marvin Bush's company. He was moved into his office in World Trade center the day before 9/11. On the eve of 9/11 he told his colleague Jerry Hower “We’re due for something big” – O’Neal was also murdered in the governments 9/11 False Flag operation.
The 47 story sky scraper WTC building 7 that was also demolished by explosives on 9/11 destroyed the FBI and CIA offices in that building containing evidence on the ENRON and other government corruption investigations.
Co-conspirator NY Mayor Rudolph Giuliani was running Tripod II, a "bio warfare" exercise in New York from Pier 29 on 9/11. This placed FEMA in immediate control of the WTC after bombs planted by the President-unelect's brother Marvin Bush's company who controlled security on the WCT brought the three steel skyscrapers down. FEMA control also allowed Controlled Demolition Inc. the company that destroyed evidence in FBI's Oklahoma City Bomb to quickly remove and destroy evidence at the governments 9/11 WTC False Flag operation. Giuliani also slipped up when interviewed by Peter Jennings on ABC news when he revealed that he had foreknowledge that the WTC buildings were going to collapse.
Cheney and Bush refused to testify before the 9/11 Commission. Considering that they work for "We The People", we are not sure under what authority these public servants claimed immunity from the investigation. Under pressure Bush & Cheney agreed to only meet secretly not under oath with select members of the Commission. Was this to avoid the criminal dilemma of contradictory testimony?
In his outstanding website PrisonPlanet.com, Alex Jones one of our Nations finest citizens and expert on the subject states: "Site R - also known as Raven Rock or the Alternate Joint Communications Center is from where vice-President Dick Cheney ran the aftermath of the 9/11 attack. Cheney's command superceded the orders of the Pentagon, the FAA or the White House. He is the number one suspect in the murder of nearly 3,000 innocent people." Alex goes on "The smoking guns of 9/11 are no longer disparate jigsaw pieces that serve to just raise more questions than they answer. We now have a coherent and plausible explanation of how the events unfolded, why there was no air defense response, and a prime suspect as to who executed these actions. The facts fit this version of events." - http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/september2004/080904wargamescover.htm
We whole heartedly agree with and support Alex Jones' position. "We The People" have conducted investigations and have found more than sufficient facts and information to indict numerous senior officials starting with Bush & Cheney. These criminals need to be formally charged and put on trial. Their actions are not only heinous in nature they have caused untold agony and have placed peace in the entire world in jeopardy. They have shamed the U.S. and placed all of us at risk.
Large numbers of senior officials and celebrities are coming forward to lodge their knowledge and belief that Bush, Cheney, Rumsveld etc. orchestrated 9/11. The good news is that impeachment is not necessary as Bush is not the popularly elected President, he was illegally placed in the White house by criminals in the Supreme Court. This also implies that his entire administration is illegal. "We The People" through the authority of Grand Juries, formed outside of the control of the government and judiciary have full authority to immediately form and issue indictments for these filthy criminals. There is no time to waste as the 2008 elections are also guaranteed to be a sham
