Bush put Cheney in charge on 9/11 by Executive Order months in advance, and Cheney put our NORAD air defenses on "stand down" over the target areas at the Pentagon and World Trade Center Towers resulting in the orchestrated 9/11 attacks.
On the morning of 9/11 a Military Aide informs the Vice President in the White House Bunker that an "unauthorized" aircraft is just ten miles out from the Pentagon, and asks, sir, "do the order (stand down orders) still stand?", and Richard B. Cheney whips his neck around and replies, "of course the order still stands-have you heard anything to the contrary?", and then, in just moments, the Pentagon gets hit, and the World Trade Center Towers also took two hits earlier that morning as well.
Apparently, Cheney's "stand down" orders insured the success of the 9/11 attacks, as NOT a single NORAD Interceptor Aircraft was on the scene, and NOT a single defensive missile was launched or shot fired, to defend the Pentagon and World Trade Center Towers, thereby insuring that the hit on the Pentagon, and the two hits on the World Trade Center Towers, followed by the controlled demolitions at the World Trade Center Tower Buildings, 1, 2, and also 7, not hit by an aircraft (all three blown up), could succeed, without delay or hindrance, to their destructive conclusions, in full compliance with Cheney's direct orders.
One George W. Bush put Cheney in charge of our military for 9/11 and never said "anything to the contrary" (Minetta Testimony) to countermand Cheney's "stand down" order that morning.
Former Secretary of Transportation Norman Minetta (at 1:30 minutes) makes it crystal clear as a bell that Cheney gave the NORAD "stand down" orders for the 9/11 attacks to succeed.
Former CIA Agent/High Level Intelligence Officer David Steele says Cheney gave the OK for the 9/11 attacks, then ordered NORAD to "stand down" during the attacks. "Cheney saw an opportunity for what Bush called his "Trifecta", and gave it to him by giving the go-ahead to ISI and Al Qaeda, and ordering up a terrorism exercise that allowed him to send all relevant close-in air defense strip alert craft away from the target areas, and to disable the NORTHCOM normal response to flight path diversion."
