Standing Orders to Delay on 911: Legislators Indict President Bush & Vice President Bush

RE: Request to Indict President Bush & Vice President Bush
for Criminal Neglect and Failure to Lift Standing Orders to Delay on 9/11

Dear Representative:

The United States has written laws so that people might know their rights and secure justice through the courts.
The U.S. Constitution requires that all elected officials take an oath promising to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution.
Violating the Constitution is a crime. Those who violate the Constitution are criminals.

I am writing to you out of concern that constitutional violations occurred on 9/11.

Article 4, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution states:
Every State shall be protected against Invasion; and domestic Violence.

President Bush and Vice President Cheney failed to protect the U.S. against Invasion on 9/11.

When notified of the attack on the World Trade Centers, President Bush neglected to assume his duties as Commander in Chief on 9/11, but instead continued participating in a reading lesson being conducted in a public school classroom in the State of Florida.

U.S. Constitution: Defensive Actions Reserved to States

Article 1, Section 8 states:

Congress shall reserve, “to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of *training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress.”

In light of Katrina, defense organized at the Federal level is ineffectual and cannot be relied upon to furnish for the common defense.

On 9/11: Defensive Action Transferred to Federal Official

However, despite the constitutional requirement that defensive action be reserve to the states, President Bush,

· *transferred authority of command during a crisis involving a hijacked plane from the *FAA (*also illegal) to Vice President Cheney, on 9/11 as “the (federal) commander at the highest available level” through Presidential Directive, on June 1, 2001, three months before 9/11.

· *placed Vice President Cheney in charge of all training exercises on 9/11 through mandate, creating the Office of National Preparedness in FEMA, specifically in the areas of "training and planning" of weapons of mass destruction programs to "maximize effectiveness" on May 8, 2001, just four months prior to 9/11.

Standing Orders to Delay

Enclosure B:
(2) If practicable, aircraft movement will be delayed to allow time for ground personnel and the aircrew to establish communication and execute coordinated resistance actions.

(3) Within this authorization, the commander at the highest available level will determine whether delaying actions should be discontinued. “Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff:

Instruction Aircraft Piracy June 2001

Former Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta alleges
Standing orders to delay in effect on 9/11:

"During the time that the airplane was coming into the Pentagon, there was a young man who would come in and say to the Vice President...the plane is 50 miles out...the plane is 30 miles out....and when it got down to the plane is 10 miles out, the young man also said to the vice president "do the orders still stand?" And the Vice President turned and whipped his neck around and said "Of course the orders still stand, have you heard anything to the contrary!??" - 37k –9/11 Commission In response to: Commissioner Hamilton’s question

9/11: Cheney Delayed Scrambling of Jets
Mineta’s description of the events on 9/22 indicates Cheney did exercise his option to delay the scrambling of jets.

Given the evidence demonstrates President Bush did not protect the U.S. on 9/11 and Vice President Cheney acted to prevent to protective action from being taken, their alleged actions combined constitute grounds for impeachment. Therefore, to protect the U.S. on 9/11, I direct you to indict Dick Cheney and George W. Bush for crimes committed on 9/11.
