The plane is 50 miles out. The plane is 30 miles out.' And when it got down to, 'The plane is 10 miles out,' the young man also said to the vice president, 'Do the orders still stand?' And the vice president turned and whipped his neck around and said, 'Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?
Surely this is criminal negligence as Cheney was well aware that the US was not only already under attack but that a plane was 50, 30, 10 miles from the Pentagon (which incidentally is under P-56 prohibited airspace)
Whether you believe that the government was complicit in the 9/11 attacks or not, why on earth didn't Cheney have the Pentagon evacuated?
MR. MINETA: No, I was not. I was made aware of it during the time that the airplane coming into the Pentagon. There was a young man who had come in and said to the vice president, "The plane is 50 miles out. The plane is 30 miles out." And when it got down to, "The plane is 10 miles out," the young man also said to the vice president, "Do the orders still stand?" And the vice president turned and whipped his neck around and said, "Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?" Well, at the time I didn't know what all that meant.

been ready with planes in the skies to defend the Capital. Theres two main targets in DC. The whitehouse and the Pentagon. So, dont give me theres many targets in DC to hit.
It had been at least 45 minutes since both the towers were struck. Cheney KNEW it would be hitting SOMETHING.
"Our supervisor picked up our line to the White House and started relaying to them the information [that] we have an unidentified, very fast-moving aircraft inbound toward your vicinity, 8 miles west," O'Brien said. Link
At about 10:15 a.m. on September 11, the WFO Command Center was notified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that another airliner, United Airlines Flight #93, was hijacked after taking off from Newark, NJ, and was flying on a course from western Pennsylvania toward the Washington Metropolitan Area. The FAA estimated it would reach Washington, DC, in 20 minutes. The Command Center relayed the information to Special Agent Combs at the ACFD ICP who alerted Chief Schwartz. Special Agent Combs located a Washington Metropolitan Airports Authority (WMAA) firefighter equipped with a radio and confirmed the information about Flight #93. Chief Schwartz ordered a complete area evacuation, directing the response force to relative safety beneath nearby highway overpasses. Special Agent Combs stayed at Chief Schwartz’ side, giving him updates as the FAA tracked the course of Flight #93. The last update came when the airliner was 4 minutes away from the Pentagon. Five minutes later, Special Agent Combs reported to Chief Schwartz that Flight #93 had crashed into Camp David in Maryland. In fact, it crashed in a field near Shanksville, PA. Chief Schwartz sounded the all clear. page C46
According to witnesses at the Pentagon, they received absolutely no warning until the plane actually struck the Pentagon.
