Airline Shootdown Rules Revised

Quote:
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pentagon's top officials sought to reassure air travelers Thursday about procedures for deciding whether to shoot down a hijacked commercial jet.
Quote:
If time was too short, the final decision on firing at a civilian airliner could be made by a general responsible for U.S. air defense. Rumsfeld and others stressed this would be rare, a last resort.
