Sec of Transportation – Norman Mineta

9/11 is a day to remember a horrible event, but it’s also a day that he called in all airplanes.

“Mineta shouted into the phone to Monte Belger at the FAA: “Monte, bring all the planes down.” It was an unprecedented order-there were 4,546 airplanes in the air at the time.”

GR friend Konrad Ng interviews him and it’s on ustream. It’s a little jittery at least on our computers, but the audio is clear. Listen to it like a podcast. ( – Norman Mineta)
