"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?"
If this particular conversation referred to a shoot down order, the "plane" would have been shot down. In all likelihood, the person approaching the
VP was confused as to why they were NOT shooting down the "plane" which would explain why he repeatedly approached Cheney.
Cheney confirms (the order we are referring to in this conversation) to NOT shoot down the "plane" or - it - would - have - been - shot - down.
I'm sorry, but this is not difficult to understand.

Why the Pentagon? Because that was the plan all along.
gladtobehere, your take and interpretation/description of the Cheney exchange with the "young man" is very close to my own. I'm not so much into the
smokescreen differences between two similar sounding phrases, for me it's more about the elephant in the PEOC. The incoming threat etc.
It's like "Hello, there's a plane coming into D.C., we know this because we're (apparently somebody) is tracking it..."
So Cheney never asks where it might be going? Where it might impact? He's not even a little curious?
It could, after all, be headed straight for the PEOC!! He doesn't even know. But why is he in the PEOC? Oh yeah, in New York, two planes hit a tower
each with surgical precision!
But he doesn't even take any precautions either. Every important target in the area should've gotten an evacuation order. Someone could've called the
Pentagon and told them, they could've had an impromptu fire drill and that building would've at least been on alert with some people evacuated. But
was anything evacuated? Apparently not.
Now why not? Cheney dropped the ball.
Cheney is like the super of an apartment building who smells smoke and gets a report from a "young tenant" that the furnace in the basement has gone
ablaze and the fire is making its way to the first floor, now the second floor, now the third floor... does Cheney run down the remaining floors
banging on the doors to alert and arouse unaware people of the impending danger? Apparently not.
A bunch of people died at the Pentagon on 9/11 even though some other people (including Cheney it seems) knew something was coming, and knew with
enough time to make a few calls and alert some people.
I mean, that's what it looks and sounds like to me anyway.
Why are we asking Mineta questions? He was not privy to the exchange between the "young man" and Cheney. Question the "young man". Find out who his
superiors were and find out exactly what they knew. No one even got a name for this "young man"? Didn't think so.
