 So we don't know if such discussions did occur
Actually it was a rhetorical question, but you're right on about what drove the meeting. I daresay we've all been through plenty of those. There's an account of the meeting before the Challenger launch <http://onlineethics.org/essays/shuttle/telecon.html#fig10> that sounds like an echo of plenty of meetings I've attended.

As I say, it's a rhetorical question, but I bet the discussion occurred.
