These are not conspiracy theories.

These are facts concerning what happened on 9/11.

Below are some striking things that happened or striking things that Bush said that really stand out. Either he is a blatant liar or he is a very confused man and his competence to be president of the US should be investigated.

Bush held a town meeting in Orlando Florida on December 4, 2001 and started the myth that he saw the first plane crash into the WTC.

QUESTION: One thing, Mr. President, is that you have no idea how much you've done for this country, and another thing is that how did you feel when you heard about the terrorist attack?

Well... (APPLAUSE)Thank you, Jordan.Well, Jordan , you're not going to believe what state I was in when I heard about the terrorist attack. I was in Florida. And my chief of staff, Andy Card -- actually I was in a classroom talking about a reading program that works. And 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 use to fly myself, and I said, "There's one terrible pilot." And 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, and I was sitting in the classroom, and Andy Card, my chief who was sitting over here walked in and said, "A second plane has hit the tower. America's under attack."

Media reports of the first crash into the WTC began at 8:48am. Bush was supposedly en route to Booker Elementary School at that time. When Bush arrived at the school at 8:50, people there were already aware of what had happened. Stories differ as to how Bush was told. We also know that there was no footage of the first plane hitting the first WTC until the next day. If Bush saw a plane hitting the WTC, then he must have seen the second plane hitting the WTC and must have known that there was already a plane in the other WTC because there was smoke coming out of it! But he was in the classroom when the second plane hit. Andy Card whispered in his ear when the second plane hit. Just how confused is Bush? You would think his advisors would have corrected him after he told this story.. but no! Bush said something similar in January 2002 at a town meeting in Ontario, Calif
"Q: What was the first thing that went through your head when you heard that a plane crashed into the first building?''

"THE PRESIDENT: Yes. 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 was sitting there, 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, 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. But I made up my mind that if America was under attack, we'd get them.''
The weird thing about all this is that we all remember what we were doing when we heard about the attack on 9/11. We remember quite clearly. Why is it that the president has such fuzzy memories of that day? Is this not disturbing?

Bush was never asked to explain these statements. They contradict every single media report. It even contradicts the speech Bush gave on the evening of 9/11 from the White House!
Immediately following the first attack, I implemented our government's emergency response plans. Our military is powerful, and it's prepared. Our emergency teams are working in New York City and Washington, D.C. to help with local rescue efforts.

No Mister President, you stayed in the classroom with your staff and you listened to children read you a book about a goat. It's on video. You sat there. Your staff was there. The secret service didn't whisk you away. You didn't make a statement until 9:30 am. This is very strange. Even if I throw away all the evidence that you did have knowledge that this attack was coming, why would you just sit there with the kids and not find out if the FAA alerted fighter jets to see what was going on? How come? The FAA knew about the hijacked planes and we will get to those shortly.

People say the President was so strong and determined after 9/11. Quite honestly we were a nation in shock. A monkey could have done what he did looking back at that time. We didn't know at that time what his actions were on that fateful day. As the shock wears off, we can look back and really see that this guy is either incompetent or a complete liar.
