Vanity Scare

Posted by codemorse

There's an excellent and troubling article on the 9/11 tapes up on Vanity Fair's site. You can read it HERE. Among other interesting revelations, the author of the article shows clearly that Cheney was not informed of United 93 having been hijacked until one minute before it crashed.

This would appear to mean that Cheney's subsesquent remarks about a "difficult decision" whether or not to shoot the flight down have been fabrications at best; outright lies at worst.

While Vanity Fair's political coverage usually runs a little heavy in Bush-hatred for even this chest-thumpin' liberal, this is a very well-written and researched article. It's worth your time, especially if you're skeptical of it's claims.
