I'm not the sort of guy to sit in a comfy command and control bunker and tell some young hotshot to commit suicide. I'd have to strap on an airplane and do it myself.

No one is telling any pilot to commit suicide.

What we are saying is DO something, distraction, etc., rather than watch Flight 77 hit the Penatagon.

The mission is to stop Flight 77 from hitting the Pentagon. There's only one thing that will work in the absence of armed airrcaft, and that's ramming.

"Doing something" in the name of looking like you're doing something is exactly what got us 9/11. We could--and should--have been serious about terrorism since 1993. We weren't; Clinton engaged in vigorous yet purposeless activity for eight years.

You need to do something effective. And in that case, if I were in tactical command at Andrews, and I knew that a plane was inbound towards the DC area, target unknown but undoubtedly of high value, I would have strapped on an unarmed F-16 and gone hunting. And I would have rammed Flight 77.
