30. Timing is everything
Mineta is supposed to arrive in the PEOC at 9:20 (or 9:27, or maybe 9:27), according to his statements. He then tells us he set up a phone bridge with the FAA, which he used to speak to Belger before the Pentagon impact, giving the order to ground all planes afterwards.

But here we have Don Philips saying that Mineta wasn't talking to the FAA until at least 15 minutes after that order, 10 o'clock-ish, when they found him in the PEOC.

USA Today have a similar story ( ), except Mineta does call them this time. But he still doesn't make contact until after 9:45.
