An interesting short revelation coming via George W. Bush's new book, Decision Points. The president thought United 93 was brought down in the field in Pennsylvania, after being shot down on his orders.
Of course, that is not what happened. Passengers stormed the cockpit after learning of the two attacks on the World Trade Towers, and the plane crashed during the fight that ensued.
Bush issued the order to shoot down any hijacked flight that day. Think of the anguish of believing you ordered innocent Americans to die. How he felt after learning the truth is not mentioned in this tease of the coming release of Decision Points on November 9th.
