CheneyWhat Else Did He Lie About?

The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd writes today:

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. *

Cheney lied about numerous other facts related to 9/11 as well. For example, Cheney:

* Indeed, Cheney initiated Continuity of Government plans on 9/11 which essentially nullified America’s constitutional form of government.

    And what is he doing walking around with a new heart and pushing for the continuation of the planned war. The Veterans on line Report run mostly by Vietnam Vet. has been on this for a long while happy to see the public getting into this nest of treacherous traitors. If you want to rub it in look up that Plan For 20 century America written by the Neo Con, look at the dates, see the planned changes. ” the Constitution is, after all, only a piece of paper” quoting Bush reply to complains. Oh really? wait and see as we make it bite you. It is the best document written so far, during a Renaissance when the people were waking to natural rights and freedom, and writers like Locke and Mill and many others started publishing.
