Cheney: Hero Passengers Foiled Terror Attack on Washington

Sunday, 16 September 2001 12:00 AM

"I think the Washington part of the attack was significantly interfered with," he told NBC's "Meet the Press."

"Clearly, we know the plane that crashed outside Pittsburgh was headed for Washington. We know it was part of the scheme -- (Jeremy) Glick and others, (Thomas) Burnett, were very courageous when they made that decision (to attack the hijackers) knowing that they were doomed."

Instead of reaching Washington, Flight 93 slammed into a field at Shanksville, Pa., at an horrific 500 mph. The crash is believed to be the result of actions taken by passengers like Glick and Burnett who knew they were doomed after learning via cell calls home that two other aircraft had just slammed into New York's Twin Towers.

"I called Mrs. Glick yesterday, as a matter of fact," Cheney told MTP host Tim Russert. "I haven't been able to reach Mrs. Burnett yet but I want to call her too. I'm sure there were probably others on the aircraft who helped.

"What they did was to foil, I think, the attack on Washington," the vice president said.
