Bush "Projecting Strength"

You're at a photo op, reading a book with schoolchildren and an aide suddenly whispers that a second plane has hit the World Trade Center. "America is under attack."

You're the president of the United States. What do you do?

The staff of the 9/11 Commission this week released a report that summarizes Bush's closed-door testimony about his thoughts as he sat there.

"The President felt he should project strength and calm until he could better understand what was happening." - Washington Post (06/19/04)

I am new to your site. I find it quite ineresting. One thought, it is easy to judge sitting on this side of 9/11. We have no idea what was really told to the President at that time nor how we would have reacted had we been president. It is easy to say I would have done so and so but to be in that position 24/7 is a whole other story. Just my thoughts.
