Regardless of your position on this topic, you cannot help but admit that a major coincidence (at the very least) took place on the morning of June 23, 2006.
It all began on the evening of June 22, 2006, when “Hannity & Colmes” (on the FOX/RNC Channel) had a guest on by the name of Dr. James H. Fetzer (see endnote). Fetzer is a member of 9/11 Scholars for Truth. Due to some unexpected initial confusion on the part of the hosts regarding their chosen “attack theme” (they got their “facts FOXED,” as Fetzer said), Fetzer was given a rare opportunity to answer an open-ended question — almost without interruption. As the lawyers all say, “Never ask a witness any question to which you do not already know the answer.”
Colmes asked Fetzer something to the effect, “So can you give us one piece of evidence that would tend to point toward 9/11 being an inside job by the Bush Administration?”
While Ollie North (who was guest hosting for Hannity) was apparently still lost in confusion, Fetzer had a rare opportunity to speak a few full sentences without hostile, obnoxious interruptions. He said (and I’m paraphrasing here again), “I point you to Secretary of Transportation Norman Minetta’s testimony before the 9/11 Commission. Minetta said he had encountered Vice President Cheney in a bunker in Washington, DC, at 9:20 AM, on the day of the attacks [forty-three minutes earlier than Cheney said he had arrived]. Every few seconds a young man would come into the room and say, ‘Sir, it’s 50 miles out. Sir, it’s 40 miles out. Sir, it’s 30 miles out,’ and so on. Finally the young man asked the Vice President, ‘Sir, do the orders still stand?’ Cheney replied gruffly, ‘Of course, the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?’
Fetzer went on to explain that only later did Minetta learn that the young man was referring to Flight 77 approaching Washington, DC, and the orders the young man was referring to were obviously orders NOT to shoot the plane down. That’s why the young man had finally asked if the orders still stood, to which Cheney replied that they did. Shortly thereafter, Flight 77 (or a “reasonable” facsimile thereof) struck the Pentagon.
Obviously, the producers of the “Hannity & Colmes Propaganda Hour” had not anticipated such a damning bit of irrefutable evidence to escape over “their” airwaves to their glassy-eyed, drool-chinned audience.
The very next morning, less than twelve hours after his 9/11 testimony had been unexpectedly “exposed” to the FOX faithful, Norman Minetta resigned as Secretary of Transportation.
What an unbelievably amazing coincidence of timing!
Just for the sake of argument, let’s say Minetta’s timing was truly nothing more than a coincidence. If so, then he couldn’t have picked a worse time to announce it (unless it was his relatively subtle way of sending a message to the masses). Or, if he was forced to resign by Bush/Cheney (for whatever reason), they couldn’t have picked a more self-incriminating time to make it happen.
There has been barely a peep about Minetta’s resignation in the mainstream media. I saw the same, generic, non-informational, totally uncurious five-second clip about it several times, but there has been absolutely no speculation as to why he did it (although his recent back surgery is implied to be the main reason). That’s incredibly unusual behavior for our babbling heads, isn’t it? Other high-level resignations in the last few months from the Bush Administration were the subject of endless babble among the MSM “elite.”
I can only imagine the sudden conflicting thoughts of at least five out of every one hundred Fox viewers who had heard Fetzer mention Minetta’s damning testimony just a few hours before Minetta resigned. What must they have been thinking for a short time before their self-hypnosis kicked back in?
