Cheney Admits that He Lied about 9/11

Washington’s Blog

What Else Did He Lie About?

The New York Times’ Maureen Daud 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 … and 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:

  • Falsely claimed that spying on Americans, torture, the Patriot Act, the Afghanistan war, the Iraq war and the “war on terror” were all necessitated by 9/11 … when none of it was true

  1. Time for cheney and bush to face the firing squad and face the firing squad on national television for all to watch their sorry asses go limp while tied to that post.

    1. I say we line up ‘W'”, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Addington, and use one bullet, Nazi style. A bullet saved is a bullet earned. lol

      1. Digger, Millard,
        A firing squad, while fast and efficient, is much too good for them. Many of us want to see these pigs do the hemp rope dance! I don’t want to snap their necks, just strangle em and watch their faces at the horror of shitting themselves on public TV! Then their bladders let loose. Then they slowly die.

        1. The rope is always good rhumstruck. Here is another good one I think – Give them a 500 ft. headstart and turn 2 or 3 attack/killer dogs on them to tear them limb to limb. Now that would be exciting I think.

    1. Since this is about Cheney’s lies and not about drones, etc. Maureen’s opinions are irrelevant in this discussion.

  2. He knows his time on this earth is short and is trying to make amends with God. Only problem is hells gates are awaiting.

  3. Don’t execute them, just take away Secret Service Security/Protection and let nature take its course. Could send them to Iraq and make them clean up the DU, that would definitely kill them just as the vets have been dying of.

    1. don’t execute ANYBODY…’s too quick. And don’t hang ’em by the neck either. Hang ’em upside-down like Mussolini so they can be stoned to death, or something else that takes a while.

      They’ve ALL caused much too much suffering to be granted a quick exit.

  4. Stop it. Is there anything he DIDN’T lie about?

    He didn’t “lie about 9-11”. He was an accomplice to the murder of 3000 people on 9-11. His lies are constant, and irrelevant.

  5. One thing that has stuck in my head since last night was Senator Grahamcracker boasting about the missile defense system surrounding Washington D.C. I’ll just leave it at that.

  6. Reminder: Sept 11 2001 attacks could not have been planned in 8 months in office by Bush’it and his Thug Big Dick ( Cheney). Took years for USrael to plan these attacks and pending coverups. Bill Clinton and Aerial Sharon were the master minds–Bush was the stupid dumbass drunk’en mule

  7. So if a proven, self-admitted liar says he lied does that mean he’s lying and did not lie? Just shut the F up Dick, nobody believes you or cares what you say anymore unless it’s with your last dying breath.

  8. Everyone knows Cheney was the real president during the Bush Jr. presidency. Both of them ought to be taken out and shot in the head. Actually just take away Cheney’s heart monitor. Problem solved.
