    Abstract

    On September 11, 2001, while the four terrorist attacks were still taking place, US Vice-President Dick Cheney is reported to have authorised the 'taking out' of any further hijacked aircraft. Had that order been acted upon, passengers travelling in those planes would have almost certainly been killed.
