As soon as George Bush was trying to make himself look good by trying to say the surge was working, everything in Iraq blew up. Has anyone figured out that these people don't care what the price is, including death? They are like a big public relations nightmare for him and his entire administration. They got him in office, so to speak. As everyone was looking at HOW he got elected, the news shifted to the Nine Eleven attacks. He stated that he saw the first plane hit the twin towers and said, “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.”
There was no film footage of the first attack until at least the following day so what was he talking about?
Think about that. Bush’s remark implies he saw the first plane hit the tower. But we all know that video of the first plane hitting did not surface until the next day. Could Bush have meant he saw the second plane hit—which many Americans witnessed? No, that couldn't be because he said that he was in the classroom when Card whispered in his ear that a second plane hit. Bush’s recollection has plenty of wrong details. Was he simply confused? It’s strange that his advisors didn’t correct him or at least stop him from repeating the same story four weeks later.
On January 5, 2002, Bush said: “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…”
He had to have a cover story. Why? Why not just state what actually happened? Did they know it was going to happen? We didn't know until the Nine/Eleven hearing that they had been warned about the whole incident prior. "Bush himself was given an intelligence briefing a month earlier entitled “Bin Laden to Strike in US,” and it contained a warning from the British government that the US should expect multiple airline hijackings from al-Qaeda." When Condoleezza Rice was forced to read that memo at the Nine/Eleven hearing I wanted to ask her what part of that didn't he understand?
There are so many other discrepancies that happened also. The fact that Bush stated that he implimented a "security plan" after hearing that the first plane had struck. What plan was that? Ignore reports and read to children? It was my opinion that he and Rice were under fire for NOT doing anything and knew it would look bad so he and Karl Rove made up a statement. The fact remains that they were told in the motorcade on the way to the school that morning and chose to do nothing immediately. Just like Katrina and everything else they chose to do nothing about immediately, which probably cost John McCain an election. Nothing he does at this point is going to save him from going down in history as our 'worst president ever' and Tony Blair thinks he is OK. This makes me wonder about Tony Blair. Does he think being an American dumbass is a thing to pity and feel hospitable to. He obviously doesn't realize that we are trying real hard to get rid of the inbred dumbass redneck mentality that is part and parsel of the wonderful party that George Bush is affiliated with. Most of them (the intelligent ones) are trying to distance themselves from him now and admit his presidency was a mistake if not a joke.
