I'm glad Cheney said this.. it makes him look credible. We all know the government would shoot down a plane, and probably did, but it has never been said out loud.
Cheney says more now than when he was VP. Why?
Rumsfeld was reading from a script as seen in the video.
WHEN news came out that UA 93 was down, Rummy (and/or his hasty writers) likely thought it HAD been shot down, since he was in on the order authorizing such an action.

I get my "proof" from original sources fellas. Say what you will, the plane was shot down.
"Well, I discussed it with the president. Are we prepared to order our aircraft to shoot down these airliners that have been hijacked? He said yes... I--it was my advice. It was his decision."(Vice President Dick Cheney, September 11, 2001, source CBS News Archives)
And I think all of us have a sense if we imagine the kind of world we would face if the people who bombed the mess hall in Mosul, or the people who did the bombing in Spain, or the people who attacked the United States in New York, shot down the plane over Pennsylvania and attacked the Pentagon
