Favstar gets even better if you sign in.
Bush also told VP - and I quote - "We're at war Dick and we're going to find out who did this and we're going to kick their ass."
That's what I did September 11, 2001. Thanks for listening.
God Bless America.
(1/2) Bush to VP: "We're at war...We're going to take care of this. When we find out who did this, they're not going 2like me as President."
(2/2) Bush to VP (cont): "Sombody's going to pay."
Jay Carney, then with Time Magazine, was left behind at Barksdale. He was VERY displeased.
He also told the First Lady, "If I'm in the WH and there's a plane coming my way, all I can say is I hope I read my Bible that day."
(3/3) "We're going to get the bastards."
1 reason USA is polarized is bcause of what MSM doesn't report. No NYT coverage of Lois Lerner's lost emails. How is that not a story??
Think about that. Aboard one of the most secure spots on earth, with nothing but trusted aides/Secret Service, the fear was an inside attack
FOne Capt. Mark Tillman told me 10 yrs later that we took off at unusually steep ascent bcause he had a report of a sniper at end of runway.
9:05 WH Chief of Staff Andy Card interrupts the Pres to whisper in his hear - the second tower has been hit. "America is under attack."
We will show the world that we will pass this test.
As ex WH staffer, I can safely say staff wouldn't publicly call someone "chickensh*t" if POTUS hadn't privately said something similar 1st.
Bush said later he stayed 2collect his thoughts and send a signal of calm. He said he didn't want 2bolt from his chair and alarm the nation.
Bush closed his call with Cheney saying, "It's the new war. It's the faceless coward that attacks."
Former WH Press Secretary. I run a communications company whose clients are sports organizations, athletes & corporations. Go Yankees. Go Dolphins.
