    I'm watching a replay of the events of September 11, 2001...

    At the time, no one knew the size and scope of the attack...

    Question:
    Which government official(s) would have the authority to order a domestic aircraft carrying American citizens shot down by US fighter jets?

    The President as Commander in Chief.

    I always find the really interesting bit of 9/11 history to be who made the call to ground all the aircraft. I looked that up once and its actually a pretty interesting story.

    The Day of the Attack
    Cheney Authorized Shooting Down Planes

    By Dana Milbank
    Washington Post Staff Writer
    Friday, June 18, 2004; Page A01


    At 10:39 on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, Vice President Cheney, in a bunker beneath the White House, told Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld in a videoconference that he had been informed earlier that morning that hijacked planes were approaching Washington.
