Cheney’s Bunker Mentality — On the morning of 9/11, did the former veep violate the Constitution?

Intro from Jon Gold: Where to begin... First of all, James Ridgway is treating Cheney's "own account" as proof he arrived at the PEOC "shortly before 10:00 a.m." Which account is he referring to? It couldn't be this recent one from the same speech James is referencing. That account says, "when radar caught sight of an airliner heading toward the White House at 500 miles an hour. That was Flight 77" ... "With the plane still inbound, Secret Service agents came into my office and said we had to leave, now. A few moments later I found myself in a fortified White House command post somewhere down below."

Flight 93 never came within 50, 30, or 10 miles of Washington D.C. (as Mineta states the "young man" was reporting to Cheney) so the plane the "young man" was referring to, according to Mineta, was in fact Flight 77.

Anyway... as James points out, shoot-down orders weren't issued by Cheney until 10:18. If Cheney was in the bunker before the Pentagon was hit, and the conversation between the "young man" and Cheney (referenced by Mineta) took place at 9:25, then what orders were they? Why did the "young man" question them by asking "do the orders still stand?" Why was that "young man" never named? Why was he never brought before the 9/11 Commission to testify? If the conversation that took place between the "young man" and Cheney took place at 9:25, and referenced already given orders, than those orders were given before 9:25.

What orders were they?
