Now, it is one of the popular statements that is referenced in 9/11 Truth material: Minetta said he had encountered Vice President Cheney in a bunker in Washington, DC, at 9:20 AM, on the day of the attacks [forty-three minutes earlier than Cheney said he had arrived]. Every few seconds a young man would come into the room and say, ‘Sir, it’s 50 miles out. Sir, it’s 40 miles out. Sir, it’s 30 miles out,’ and so on. Finally the young man asked the Vice President, ‘Sir, do the orders still stand?’ Cheney replied gruffly, ‘Of course, the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?’ I decided to check Mineta’s biography: www.whitehouse.gov/g… 2 paragraphs interested me: Secretary Mineta guided the creation of the Transportation Security Administration, an agency of more than 60,000 employees charged with protecting Americans as they travel across our country. Starting from a blank sheet of paper on Nov. 19, 2001, Secretary Mineta led a team that met all 36 mandates set forth by Congress including screening all airline passengers by the TSA’s first anniversary and all baggage by Dec. 31, 2003. Because of the Secretary’s leadership, the TSA quickly developed into an effective agency that has restored air travelers’ confidence in aviation security following the terrorist attacks. The Transportation Security Administration was transferred to the Department of Homeland Security on March 1, 2003. and Prior to joining President Bush’s administration as Secretary of Transportation, Secretary Mineta served as U.S. Secretary of Commerce under President Clinton. He was vice president of Lockheed Martin Corporation prior to joining the Commerce Department. Now, what is then really interesting is this: www.lockheedmartin.c… &fti=112&ti=0&sc=400 LOCKHEED MARTIN BEGINS FABRICATION OF AIRBORNE LASER TURRET SUNNYVALE, CA, April 10, 2000 — Lockheed Martin Space Systems, a member of Team Airborne Laser (ABL), has begun fabrication of the revolutionary, high-energy laser weapon system’s turret assembly at its Sunnyvale, Calif., facility.
