One of the more damning bits of evidence of U.S. government complicity in 9/11 is that George Bush has informed us, on more than one occasion, that he saw the first (1st) WTC tower aerial impact, on TV, before he entered that Florida classroom at 9 a.m. (cached timelinevisual timeline)
However, the only known video of that event spent the day at Ground Zero, in the videographer's camera. It was first broadcast about 15 hours after it happened.
We want to see the video that Bush got to see that morning! Evidently, President Bush was watching an unknown video from some communications network that had 'anticipated' the 'surprise' attack...
When the 1st tower was struck at 8:46, George Bush was in a 2001 U.S. presidential limousine:
If you look at the thickness of the roof of that vehicle (1(cached), 2(cached), 3, 4), it is not difficult to visualize its embedded phased array satellite antenna.
The U.S. has a branch of the Defense Department not many folks know of, the Defense Information Systems Agency, or DISA. These are the folks who make it possible for generals to see live battlefield images and nosecone videos in real-time from around the globe via satellite. They are also responsible for bringing images of this type to POTUS. Here (cached) is their mission statement as of 2004:
The Defense Information Systems Agency is a combat support agency responsible for planning, engineering, acquiring, fielding, and supporting Global Net-Centric Solutions and operating the Defense Information System Network to serve the needs of the President, Vice President, the Secretary of Defense, and the other DoD Components, under all conditions of peace and war.
To help determine whether President Bush had been vividly recalling a non-existent video or had inadvertently revealed the existence of a secret video of which we were otherwise unaware, following an investigative hunch, 911blimp.net filed a Freedom Of Information Act request of DISA for records of visual information sent to the limo that morning, as well as for records of the network operations involved in acquiring and deliving to Bush before 9 o'clock that morning the otherwise-unknown 9/11 1st-impact video he'd publicly referred to.
So if someone tells you that Bush "must have been lying" when he made this revealing admission, they're not much of an investigator, to say the least. If someone mentions televisions set up at the school, they might need an imagination transplant.
So is George W. Bush the only person in the world who'd forgotten how he learned about 9/11, by vividly recalling having watched a non-existent video? Or did he repeatedly reveal the existence of an otherwise-unknown video, one whose existence (and prompt transmission to Bush) indicates some kind of prior knowledge of the 'surprise' attack at the highest level of the U.S. government?
The fact that no major U.S. news organization nor any members of Congress have called upon Bush to explain his revealing admissions is yet another indication that the U.S. Constitution has at least partially been rendered null and void.It is left to the reader to decide what it means that Democrats have never questioned, or can be made to notice, these well-documented incriminating statements.see CBC video
Thank you, Jordan.
Jordan is the name of the child who'd just asked Bush how he felt (a favored Bush question, considered safe) when he heard about the terrorist attack.
Well, Jordan, you're not going to believe what state I was in when I heard about the terrorist attack. I was in Florida.
Bush the politician, proving he knows what state he's in.
And my Chief of Staff, Andy Card...
As you'll hear, Bush started his story not at the beginning but, very disjointedly, at the end.
actually, I was in a classroom talking about a reading program -- thatworks.
Now Bush works his way towards the middle of the story -- but falls into pre-9/11 campaign patter.
And uh, it ah, I had
Bush's built-in I'm-about-to-be-cagey alarm sounds as he tries to carefully parse his words as he finally gets to the beginning of the story:
Surrounding another I'm-being-cagey alert, Bush makes it clear that he saw a video of the begininng of the 'secret' 'terrorist' attacks, apparently on some kind of special TV.
And I used to fly, myself, and I said, well, there's one terrible pilot.
inappropriate but honest Bush levity (who did he say this to?)
I said, it must have been a horrible accident.
Bush the politician, realizing that he's just said something insensitive, and he'd better put a somber spin on it
But I was whisked off there, I didn't have much time to think about it.
"whisked off there"? Interesting choice of words, but now he's finally getting to the classroom...
And I was sitting in the classroom
So then he DID have time to think about it...
and Andy Card, my Chief of Staff, who is sitting over here, walked in and said, "A second plane has hit the tower, America is under attack."
So there is no chance of Bush having mistaken which WTC impact he'd watched that morning. The 2nd tower was not struck until after Bush was in the classroom.
This of course brings us to the infamous extended interval when George Bush sat around doing his "thinking", out of touch with everyone in the world, with America under attack, listening to a story about a pet goat...
Here's what Mr. Bush said a month later in California:
Well, I was sitting in a schoolhouse in Florida. I had gone down to tell my little brother what to do, and -- just kidding, Jeb. (Laughter.) And -- it's the mother in me. (Laughter.) Anyway, I was in the midst of learning about a reading program that works. I'm a big believer in basic education, and it starts with making sure every child learns to read. And therefore, we need to focus on the science of reading, not what may feel good or sound good when it comes to teaching children to read. (Applause.) I'm just getting a plug in for my reading initiative.
Anyway, I was sitting there, and my Chief of Staff -- well, first of all, when we walked into the classroom, I had seen this-s uh plane fly into the first building. There was a TV s-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, or -- anyway, I'm sitting there, listening to the briefing, and Andy Card came and said, "America is under attack."
And in the meantime, this teacher was going on about the curriculum, and I was thinking about what it meant for America to be under attack. It was an amazing thought.
$500 reward to anyone who can disprove Bush's statements.
REALITY CHECK: Imagine 9/11 had happened a year earlier, and the USA had suffered its worst-ever defensive military failure on Clinton's watch. Also imagine that Clinton then twice let slip that he'd watched the 'secret' attack unfold on TV. Then imagine all Republicans pretending he hadn't.
