Now that the survivors of the WTC are asking questions about the conduct of GW Bush on 9-11, his sitting in a classroom, his tour of the US., the threat to the White House is being trotted out once again. Originally this involved Flt. 77, but this was discredited since the radar showed no flight path involving the White House, and in fact according to the Wash. Post, Cheney, Rice, and the WH staff were not moved to the bunker until just before Flt. 77 hit the Pentagon. Cheney said he saw it on TV on his way to the bunker.
Even if it could be shown that 93 had the WH as a target, it does not explain GW's failure to return to Washington DC, since by 10:00am he had authorized the shooting down of hijacked planes, albeit belatedly, and at 10:06 Flt. 93 had crashed or been shot down. At that point the skies were clear. He continued his Odyssey. And it does not explain his sitting there immobilized.
The failure to investigate is allowing the administration to propagandize the public to cover up his actions on that tragic day. So many lies have been told about the events of 9-11 that it is impossible to know what is the truth and what is another story put out by the White House.
The media and the Congress are failing in their responsibility to the American people.

If we are to believe that poor, doomed UAL 93 was to be shot down before it hit the White House or the Capitol or CIA Headquarters or some other "important" target in the DC area, what's up with this report from a Washington Post story, "America's Chaotic Road to War," January 27, 2002 (http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn?pagename=article&node=&contentId=A42754-2002Jan26)An excerpt from the story:
"Closer than 60 miles out?"
"Out" from what?
Maybe my geography fails, but best I can determine the Shanksville, PA crash site is more than twice that distance from DC. So just which "important site" _was_ Dick really trying to protect, if not anything in DC?

Which brings us right back to the question BuzzFlash asked in October, 2001:
"Was Flight 93 Shot Down Over Pennsylvania? If So, Was It Because The Hijackers Were Targeting Three Mile Island?"
