Dick Cheney is dead wrong on where the 9/11 hijackers were from

In the midst of attacking Sen. Rand Paul’s foreign policy, Dick Cheney also made a curious and conveniently false statement about the home countries of the 9/11 hijackers. Did you catch it?


With all the hype about Afghanistan and Bin Laden, Dick Cheney probably thinks that Americans won’t remember that not a single one of the 15 9/11 hijackers hailed from Afghanistan.

15 of the 19 were citizens of Saudi Arabia. The others were from the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Lebanon. I guess it’s more convenient to forget to say “Saudi Arabia” when you’re kissing and embracing that country’s leader year after year…

More importantly, none of those hijackers were responsible for the collapse of the Twin Towers. I bet the dancing Israelis know who is, however!



Great post Radio...Not ONE of those hijackers was from Iraq.

In fact, 15 out of 19 of them were from Saudi Arabia - our good "friend."

Had I been president after 9/11 I would not have fired a single bullet.

I would have waltzed into Saudi Arabia with my army (those rich Saudi kings don't even HAVE an army), and nationalized every Saudi oil field until every penny was paid back for 9/11.

Gas would have been a dollar a gallon.

Bin Laden was from Saudi Arabia,
Al Queda is a Saudi-based organization,
Most of 19 hijackers were Saudis,
Wahabi advocates killing any infidel

What more evidence was needed???

Unless of course there'm more to this story...

But let's remember the REAL cause of why they did it - if they did it...

They SAID it was because we put our military base too close to Mecca which is the holiest place in Islam.

So the problem goes back to daddy Bush (Ex CIA head).

I would also have stayed the hell out of Kuwait and let those rich Saudi kings and princes field their own damn army to fight the Iraqis.

There is a difference between "wrong" and being a calculating fabricator. Cheney makes the sadly correct assumption that the majority of Americans either don't care, or will do no critical thinking or work to find real information contrary to his well supported lies.

Proof - Dick Cheney Already Knew Hijackers Were On Board United 93 Before the Flight Crew Did!

All of us know that Dick Cheney ordered United Flight 93 shot down (See attached video), but does anyone know how long after the crew announced to the Air Traffic controller they were being hijacked and subsequently shot down? Less than 3 minutes. Listen to this actual Air Traffic Controller from the time he was aware of United Flight 93 being in trouble and the time it took for observers to see black smoke coming from United Flight 93.

United Flight 93 was given air traffic at their one o'clock position flying at 37,000'. ATC usually gives traffic as the type of aircraft and Airline name if known. Notice he calls everyone else by their identifying name. There also seems to be some confusion as to the identity of another aircraft in the area. All aircraft above 18,000 feet must be in radio contact with Air Traffic Controllers. There was no identifying indicators what or who was approaching Flight 93 at 37,000 feet.

A little over three minutes later, the controller lost contact with flight 93 and a “ Puff of Smoke” was reported coming from United. There was some screaming from a keyed microphone saying there was a bomb on board. As we all know from the investigation, the hijackers did not have bombs and only armed with box cutters and planned to dive into a ground target unknown to anyone at that time. When you listen to the tape, it is clear the traffic previously reported to United Flight 93 turned to a heading of North (360 degrees) while climbing to 41,000 feet and then smoke was reported by an Execjet pilot reporting puffs of black smoke coming from the airplane. The black smoke was a missile impact.


From the time it took from where the Air Traffic Controller was aware of the hijacking to the time Flight was shot down was a matter of a little over 3 minutes. In the attached video, Dick Chaney passed on the President’s approval to shoot down Flight 93.

Now let’s think about this a little bit. Dick Chaney “passed on the President’s approval” to shoot down United Flight 93, which meant the timeframe to pass this information to a military command and direct an armed jet to intercept and shoot down would certainly take more than three minutes.

Unless I am missing something, Dick Chaney must have known United Flight 93 already had hijackers on it.

CHANEY KNEW THE HIJACKERS WERE ALLREADY ON FLIGHT 93 before the flight crew did. Think about that for a while and if it doesn’t terrify you, nothing will. He was pretty cold in the interview. Truly an evil and criminal man.

One lie is as good as another.

Good catch, though, it shows how Cheney probably does not even remember the BS they put out in the past. How could a VP forget that?

SteveMT's picture

Both McCain & Janet Napolitano believed they entered via Canada.

Also, wrong. None entered through Canada. The neocons love to redact history.
Seven of these supposed hijackers are alive and well.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano made the comments during a media interview earlier this week, much to the chagrin of Canadians on both sides of the border.

In recent years, Ottawa has invested a great deal of effort into dispelling perceptions among Americans that Canada's border is an easy entry point for terrorists planning attacks on U.S. soil.

"Unfortunately, misconceptions arise on something as fundamental as where the 9-11 terrorists came from," said Michael Wilson, Canada's ambassador in Washington.

How do you know that the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and Lebanon? Do you consider the 9/11 Commission Report to be an accurate account of what transpired?
