Or Maybe He Meant He Was High
According to the 9/11 commission's statement released yesterday, it was Cheney who gave the order to shoot down civilian planes. Not that George Bush wasn't in complete control of the situation: "Cheney. . . told the commission he was operating on instructions from Bush given in a phone call." Though the evidence for this phone call are "incomplete," Bush and Cheney both "told the commission that they remember the phone call; the president said it reminded him of his time as a fighter pilot." Imagine Bush's surprise when he didn't get to take the next 11 months off.
