Additional Declassified U.S. Secret Service Records Describe Unidentified Aircraft Circling Washington, D.C. On 9/11

The following is a two page U.S. Secret Service Executive Summary included within a April 23, 2010 Freedom of Information Act release, describing the activities of President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, families of the president and vice-president, threats against Air Force One and activity within the Presidential Emergency Operations Center on September 11, 2001. The Executive Summary report describes Secret Service reports of an unidentified aircraft circling Washington, D.C. and the activity of other noteworthy Secret Service protectees on September 11, 2001.

can you trust? - an unidentified aircraft ....

can you trust any official information regarding 9/11? .... remember, the empire is leaning, and rocking. the bad empire of wars, of oil and exploitative fraud. this bad empire dwells, like a disease, a cancer, parasites within a good empire, an Empire of America as built by hard work, spreading the wealth, industriousness and justice , leadership throughout the world. ... /yes, sore points exist, and will always do, where ever you look - ie. extermination of native original continent inhabitants - pre-columbians. /

This good empire needs to get rid of this bad bush republican war oil no healthcare 9/11 controlled demolition empire of violent world doom, of distasteful violent sick hollywoodian "movies" ... better watch a trash bin, for a cultural values.

Can you trust any official information regarding 9/11?

Of course not. The question is whether FOIA efforts can be of value. The answer is of course they are. If Big Brother admits to something not in their interest, let's not look a gift horse in the mouth.

I think it is unfortunate that there is no FOIA team. This is an example of am important weakness in our movement. It's just a matter of 2 heads are better than one. We are still free to wonder wether any given piece of info is legit.

Thank you Aidan

for your efforts.

A few things:

- The new document states that VPOTUS (Vice Pres. of the US, I guess) entered the White House bunker at 9:38. This of course contradicts Mineta, who said Cheney was already there when Mineta arrived at 9:20-9:27, but it supports Cheney's statements.

- Is there any way to tell if the plane is the Doomsday 747, or the Pentagon plane? Maybe the statements about its path could be used to tell.

- What is 'b2, b7e', and why does it appear to be handwritten several times over underlying text?

And again, thanks for your continued efforts.

Who is the "young man" of whom Minetta speaks?

Why don't we know?

How can we find out?

young man

good idea

The answer leads to interesting exposures...

From what I have been able to figure out, the young man was a representative from the Secret Service who, if other evidence is correct, is responsible for the protection of the White House, the POTUS, the VPOTUS and most likely, has a very, very close relationship with the US Military and the FAA [for human and radar data early warnings] and is also responsible for the protection of the Pentagon....meaning, that the SS might also be in charge of the ground-to-air missile defense system at the Pentagon. Again, all of this is kept secret due to "National Security Issues" so its really hard to extract and sustain.

It was the SS that approved the release of interceptors from Andrews AFB later in the morning...aka...sustaining the day's "THEME"...and that would be releasing interceptors too late, or manuevering them far enough away so that NONE OF THEM COULD INTERCEPT THE AIRLINERS...[except for UA93].

There have been so many STUPID dust-ups over what did or did not hit the Pentagon, that many, many good minds have not been able to ask bigger questions...most notably:

...What was Cheney up to in the PEOC...

...What were the EXACT ORDERS that he kept intact with his discussion with the "young man"...

...What radar facility or radar data source was being used to supply the "young man" with the shrinking distances starting at "50 miles out..." Monte Belger of the FAA had a different radar source.

...Who, if anybody, was watching this target at 60 miles out? 100 miles out? 250 miles out?

...The US Military?...NORAD?...NEADS?...a secret radar ops center designed FOR 9/11?..A Doomsday Plane circling above?

...What is the ORIGINAL SOURCE of the 7000 foot altitude from which the UNIDENTIFIED primary target allegedly began its descent from?

...Was the E4B shown in the CNN footage Venus77 on its way to Moffitt? Was it the OTHER E4B shown in CNN footage the same Venus77 or was it part of a COG system of establishing an airbourne governement?

Almost any of the answers to the above questions will eventually lead to Cheney running what I now call:

"The 9/11 Attacks War Game Scenario"

The AA77-Pentagon-Cheney-PEOC-SS-NEADS-NORAD-FAA story is the BIG story on 9/11.

Obviously plenty of people know who the "young man" was

Did Lee Hamilton or other Commission members even ASK Minetta or ANY0ONE ELSE who the "young man" was?

NOT ASKING this obvious - super-obvious question should be enough to wake up those in the trance of the OCT myth.

Is there a record of the question even being asked?

The "young man"

IMO he is Douglas Cochrane

The 9-11 commission has this scenario, instead of the one described by N Mineta.....

"At some time between 10:10 and 10:15, a military aide told the Vice President and others that the aircraft was 80 miles out. Vice President Cheney was asked for authority to engage the aircraft. His reaction was described by Scooter Libby as quick and decisive, "in about the time it takes a batter to decide to swing." The Vice President authorized fighter aircraft to engage the inbound plane. He told us he based this authorization on his earlier conversation with the President. The military aide returned a few minutes later, probably between 10:12 and 10:18, and said the aircraft was 60 miles out. He again asked for authorization to engage. The Vice President again said yes"

The person telling Cheney the plane is 80 miles out...60 miles described as his "Military Aide". This would be the "young man" as Mineta described him. Unless there are two different people telling Cheney the plane is 80 miles out...the plane is 60 miles out....this seems extememly unlikely. So who is this military aide?

Check the footnotes, on this scenario, and the only one that applies to Cheney and the "Military Aide" would be this Douglas Cochrane.....

"215. Douglas Cochrane meeting (Apr. 16, 2004); Condeleeza Rice meeting (Feb. 7, 2004). For Rice entering after the Vice President, see USSS report,“Executive Summary:U.S. Secret Service Timeline of Events, September 11–October 3, 2001,” Oct. 3, 2001, p. 2; Carl Truscott interview (Apr. 15, 2004)."

We know who Rice is. Truscott is a member of the secret service because....
"interviews of the 3 USSS agents in proximity to the President (Eddie Marenzel) and VP (Truscott and Zotto) are still on hold."

Yes, they wanted to talk with this Military Aide as seen in this released 9-11 commission memo....

"March 2, 2004
New Requests:
(2)VP Military Aide (I believe his last name is Cochrane): The person at the Vice President's side in the PEOC who should have been intimately involved in the military communications chain is his military aide."

They did talk with him according to the 9-11 commission footnotes, a month and a half after that memo....

"215. Douglas Cochrane meeting (Apr. 16, 2004);"

But we can't see what was said in that interview yet.....

The item identified below has been withdrawn from this file:
Folder Title: White House Timelines"

Yup, he's military....but not so have to remember Mineta was around 71 at the time......

"Cochrane was selected to serve as the Naval Aide to the Vice President in November of 2000 and served Vice President Richard B. Cheney until December 2002. He was commended by President George W. Bush for distinguished service as Naval Aide and Emergency Action Officer, on and about Sept. 11, 2001."

Plane Probably AA 77 IMO

The clockwise circling of the aircraft at the times indicated seems to correspond with AA 77's movements.

The handwritten characters are statutory exemptions.


Aidan, have you uncovered evidence NOT controlled by...

...the US Government that establishes the primary target in question AS BEING the REAL AA77?

If so, please forward that evidence to the 9/11 Truth Community at your leisure.

Thank you.

Another contradiction

"The new document states that VPOTUS (Vice Pres. of the US, I guess) entered the White House bunker at 9:38. This of course contradicts Mineta, who said Cheney was already there when Mineta arrived at 9:20-9:27, but it supports Cheney's statements."

It also contradicts the 9/11 Commission, which states that Cheney did not arrive at the bunker until 10 a.m. or 9:58 a.m. at the earliest.


Vesa, and my statement above isn't fully correct. It has been claimed that Cheney left his office 'just before 9:36', and the 9/11 Commission claims that he got into the bunker 'perhaps at 9:58'. So you're very right, Aidan's new document contradicts this with him arriving at 9:37. (And Mineta saw Cheney there even earlier.).


only pgs. 2 and 7???

Aidan, is that all that was provided- was there an explanation for failure to provide the other pages?

It says on pg 2 that at 9:38 "VPOTUS enters WH bunker"; I wonder what it says on pg. 1? As PDS and others have pointed out, he may have "entered" the WH bunker more than once- i.e. he may have left to go into the hall/another room, and re-entered.

Richard Clarke, WH photog David Bohrer, Karl Rove, Ashley Estes and others have all indicated Cheney was evacuated shortly after the 2nd plane hit- which is the latest one would expect the USSS to be doing that, if it was really a surprise attack to them

Executive Summary Part Of Earlier Release

Only because the very large pages required a separate scanner were they not included in the previous post.

The provided documents only seem to be a fraction of what is available. Will be requesting those also.

trouble seeing doc

tried to delete...sorry.

Who is "JOC"?

Is that an acronym for some rank? Or is it someone's initials?

In any event ---- who is JOC?

I believe

I believe it stands for Joint Operations Center.
