He told the truth, the profound truth indicating clearly that the order had to have been to NOT shoot the plane down, and that testimony was left out of the 9-11 commission report. Mr. Mineta announced his "retirement" the morning after Dr. Fetzer said on O'Reilly Factor what Minetta's testimony was. Mr. Mineta is a lucky ducky. It's a wonder he was not "Bushwhacked".
