A lot of people saw it hit. I guess they are all in on it too.
I think the point being made was that he said he saw it before it was made public. This, of course, does not provide any proof of a conspiracy or other involvement.
Bullsh!t. Those videos were available to the public the same day.
Of course they were. We ALL know that. Ok..what time were they available? The first crash, that is. And, what time did Bush go into the classroom?
If memory serves, I recall the new showing videos of the first plane late afternoon on 9-11.
Flight 11 crashes at roughly 490 mph (790 km/h or 425 knots) into the north side of the north tower of the World Trade Center, between floors 94 and 98.
The first news and radio organizations report an explosion or incident at the World Trade Center. CNN breaks into a commercial
CNN headlines first read 'World Trade Center disaster.' Carol Lin, who was the first anchor to break the news of the attacks, said: "Yeah. This just in. You're looking at obviously a very disturbing live shot there. That is the World Trade Center, and we have unconfirmed reports this morning that a plane has crashed into one of the towers of the World Trade Center. CNN Center right now is just beginning to work on this story, obviously calling our sources and trying to figure out exactly what happened, but clearly something relatively devastating happening this morning there on the south end of the island of Manhattan. That is once again, a picture of one of the towers of the World Trade Center." Later, Sean Murtagh, CNN vice-president of finance, in an on-air phone call, said from his office in the CNN New York bureau that a large passenger commercial jet hit the World Trade Center. Murtagh was the first network employee on the air. The first email bulletins of breaking news from CNN and MSNBC report "fire at tower of World Trade Center". Both CNN and MSNBC's websites receive such heavy traffic, that many servers collapse. BBC News' website is active and shows a picture of the North Tower on fire. Minutes later, email news bulletins revise the reports of fire to a plane crash
**note** only footage of the burning wreckage is shown, not the actual plane hitting the building.
Flight 175 crashes at about 590 mph (950 km/h) into the south side of the south tower, banked between floors 78 and 84. By this time, several media organizations are covering the first plane crash; millions see the impact live.
**note** coverage of first plane's damage provides news agencies with live feed of second plane crash. The first plane crash was not yet televised
President George W. Bush enters a classroom of Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida, as part of a scheduled visit to promote education and the Bush administration education policies.
Bush repeatedly claimed to have seen the first plane hit the WTC, which is a temporal impossibility. There was no video coverage of the event at teh time in which he claims to have seen it.
Had he corrected himself in later interviews, he would have seen like less of a putz.
I'm sure his recollection was of the 2nd plane, but nevertheless, I wouldn't expect someone like Bush to correct himself.
What I find more repulsive is his ability to sit and read when told that "America was under attack".
Again, no support for conspiracy in his delayed response, just further evidence of how much of a putz he is.
