Bush is informed that the country is under attack.

On the morning of September 11th, President Bush was in Florida visiting Booker Elementary School.

He later gave contradictory reports regarding when he learned that multiple planes had been hijacked and flown into the World Trade Center.

Officially Bush says he learned of the attacks when Chief of Staff Andrew Card informed him at 9:05 AM that the country was under attack.

What did Bush do in response to this information?


He didn’t say one word. He didn’t ask Card any questions. He didn’t give any orders. He didn’t know who was attacking, whether there would be more attacks, what military plans had been taken, or what military actions should be taken. He just sat there.

Nor did his Secret Service team do anything. Initially they wanted to move Bush to a secure location but they were told to stand down.

So instead of taking action to protect the country, Bush and the students began reading the book The Pet Goat.

Once finished with the book, Bush leisurely got up and explained to the principal what had happened. He then went to an adjacent room and called Vice President Cheney and National Security Advisor Rice and prepared the speech he was going to give to the country.

Then at 9:30, almost a half hour after hearing that the country was under attack, Bush gave a press conference and reported to the country what had happened.

Two months later Bush gave a different version of how he first learned of the hijackings.

On December 4, 2001, Bush was asked: “How did you feel when you heard about the terrorist attack?” Bush replied, “I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower—the TV was obviously on. And I used to fly, myself, and I said, well, there’s one terrible pilot. I said, it must have been a horrible accident. But I was whisked off there, I didn’t have much time to think about it.”

Bush repeated that same statement on January 5, 2002, when he stated: “Well, I was sitting in a schoolhouse in Florida… and my Chief of Staff – well, first of all, when we walked into the classroom, I had seen this plane fly into the first building. There was a TV set on. And you know, I thought it was pilot error and I was amazed that anybody could make such a terrible mistake. And something was wrong with the plane…”

However there were no live transmissions of the the first plane hitting the World Trade Center building. In order for him to have seen the first plane hit the building there had to have been cameras set up in advance to capture those images and they had to have been sent to him while he was traveling to Booker Elementary School.

With his own words he convicted himself of being complicit in the attacks on 9/11.

His comments also tie in with the well documented story of Mossad agents videotaping the attacks on the World Trade Center and celebrating their destruction. Click here to read the article on the Mossad videotaping the destruction of World Trade Center towers.
