So what do you call an enemy flying jets into New York's tallest buildings and the Pentagon and passengers plowing their jet into the ground to keep it from flying into our Capital?

<quoted text>I made it his fault? bushie boy's answer to Matt Lauer on Katrina:
"...Mr. Bush ruefully acknowledged that he mishandled the Hurricane Katrina crisis, even writing a new script for his first trip to the disaster area.“I should have touched down in Baton Rouge, met with the governor, and, you know, walked out and said,‘I hear you,’” he said.“And then got back on a flight up to Washington. I did not do that. And paid a price for it.”..."
I should have 'showed face.'
Well, he didn't care. Or, perhaps he was just too busy flying around the country.
It's the Obama snakeoil.

It's one thing to be wrong through no fault of your own. It's another thing to remain willfully ignorant despite being shown documented factual evidence proving you so.

That sounds like a personal problem to me.

Please leave me out of it.

"Dick Cheney Admits That He Lied About 9/11
Print Friendly
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.
Dick Cheney
May 8, 2013
The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd writes:
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."
According to the report. Chenney and his wife was moved down several flights of stairs to a tunnel deep under the White House.
"Halfway down the tunnel was a secure telephone, a bench and a television. Cheney asked to speak to the president. By the time the call was connected, according to the report, Cheney had flipped on a television to see smoke pouring out of the Pentagon."

Cheney remembered talking to the president and getting approval for the order. What difference did it make if it occurred in the tunnel which is documented or in the command room?

Also, so what if there was an order? By the time it reached Rumsfield all the attacks had already occurred.

Your article seems short on facts and long on opinion.
