Jean-Marie Bigard: Cold-Blooded Bush at Booker Elementary School

Episode 5 of what has now become the must-see summer series.

Jean-Marie Bigard goes back over the morning of Georges W. Bush, President of the United State and commander-in-chef of the armed forces, during his visit to Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida at the moment America was attacked on that fateful day, September 11th, 2001.

Jean-Marie Bigard sums up the commander of the military forces attitude while learning about the terrorist attacks - remaining seated quietly for 7 minutes attentively listening to a group of kids reading a book. But let's go a little further, if you'd like to indulge us, in analyzing his behavior:

Rationally, we have here a matter of extreme urgency when Andrew Card, Bush's Chief of Staff, whispers into his ear that a second plane (17 minutes after the first crash) has just hit the second (South) tower of the World Trade Center. Andrew Card goes so far as to say, "America is under attack" during his brief interruption of the story about a little goat.

If the President's Chief of Staff informs him that the country is in danger, the President must discuss, ask questions, demand more information, leave the room, meet with advisers, in short... do something. Andrew Card didn't wait for instructions. After having informed Bush, he left very quickly, so as not to disturb the class for such a small matter!

Bush instead of moving just sat there, stuck to his chair for several minutes (7 to be exact). 3 years later, the 9/11 Commission wanting to support Bush offered the following explanation, "The President told us his instinct was to project calm, not to have the country see an excited reaction at a moment of crisis."

Still, it's surprising that even if Bush didn't want to scare the kids by politely excusing himself, the President's service service detail didn't want to immediately secure him, therefore removing him from danger (his visit to the Sarasota school had been a widely publicized event).

That's their role!

It would be an exaggeration to say he had foreknowledge of the attacks and that he knew he wouldn't be a target. However, we have reason to wonder - here's a few reasons why:

As reported by CNN, December 4th, 2001, during a Town Hall Meeting, George Bush stated, "And I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower" and went on to detail how he saw the infamous first plane crash on the television, then said to himself, "There's one terrible pilot."

Is this possible?

The first images of the North Tower crash were only broadcast 13 hours later thanks to the Naudet brothers who were filming a documentary that day about New York firefighters while in proximity to the Twin Towers.

Here we have a really disturbing clue allowing us to speculate about the existence of a camera (Secret Service's camera?) positioned looking at the WTC complex for the purpose of recording the attacks and transmitting the images to the Presidential Staff. If Bush's statement is factual, then this surely shows foreknowledge about the impending crashes.

Another disturbing detail. Bush was supposedly only informed of the first 'accident' in the school's corridor, although George Tenet, Director of the CIA, spoke directly with him about an attack in the minutes following the crash. Tenet is also reported to have said that Bin Laden's fingerprints were all over it (referring to the first plane crash).

It's astonishing to think that information about the 08:48 North Tower crash - picked up by CNN and broadcast as soon as 08:50, interrupting their scheduled programming - wasn't being relayed in real time to the Secret Service agents in charge of protecting the President of the United States. (note that during the first few minutes CNN brings up the name 'Bin Laden' in relation to who could be behind the attacks.)

Captain Deborah Loewer, Director of the White House Situation Room, according to her statement, rushed over to Bush getting out of the Limousine to keep him up to date.

A news photographer in the motorcade overheard a radio transmission that White House Press Secretary, Ari Fleischer, would be needed upon arrival at the school to discuss reports of some sort of crash.

Even the journalists waiting for Bush knew about the 1st crash!

...and not the President? Come on!!!

Based on the plethora of gray areas concerning the morning of George W. Bush on 9/11, one simple question springs to mind...

Who's lying?

The Association ReOpen911 France is a voluntary citizen initiative, independent from all political, philosophical and religious movements.

Bien fait - Merci encore

Formidable, M Bigard.

Oui, merci beaucoup!

I have to say I'm surprised with the cold blooded angle, I assumed it was meant GWB was cold blooded for endangering the children at Emma E. Booker Elementary. (At that time, according to official version, they had no idea how many planes were highjacked or where they were headed, the President was a conceivable target in a publicized location.)

Lost in translation

Not exactly. The problem is that these translations aren't always what they should be. In French, when someone remains calm in a time of crisis, they literally say "he kept his cold blood". (Il a gardé son sang-froid). It's sort of like saying he was "cool-headed". Bigard is not accusing GWB of being cold-blooded, in the US sense of a murderer. He's just playing off the "cold" as used in the French expression. In English, I suppose an equivalent would be something like "That's one frigid-headed guy".... There's also, "2 planes falling on our heads" should really be "2 planes just beaned us!!" Comedy doesn't always translate easily. But Bigard is doing a remarkable thing and he is to be encouraged and congratulated for his courage.

This is an interesting subject that deserves a deepened analysis. See the following links:

An Interesting Day: President Bush's Movements and Actions on 9/11

Dawdler in chief: The suspicious behavior of George W. Bush during the 9/11 attacks By Matthew Everett:

And also: "The Failure to Defend the Skies on 9/11"

Quote: "In early August 2001, Britain gave a categorical warning that the US should expect multiple airline hijackings. This warning was passed on to Bush a short time later. [Sunday Herald, 5/19/02] In June 2001"

Before September 11th, 2001, the president George Bush has been warned many times of risks of terrorist attacks on the United States and he knew that hijacked airplanes could be used by terrorists. See also:

Dennis J. Kucinich: "Quote":

"On August 6, 2001, President Bush was presented a President's Daily Brief (PDB) article titled "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S." he lead sentence of that PDB article indicated that Bin Laden and his followers wanted to follow the example of World Trade Center bomber Ramzi Yousef and 'bring the fighting to America.'" The article warned: "Al-Qa'ida members—including some who are US citizens— have resided in or traveled to the US for years, and the group apparently maintains a support structure that could aid attacks."

The article cited a "more sensational threat reporting that Bin Laden wanted to hijack a US aircraft," but indicated that the CIA had not been able to corroborate such reporting. The PDB item included information from the FBI indicating "patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent with preparations for hijackings or other types of attacks, including recent surveillance of federal buildings in New York."

But on 11 September 2001When George Bush was told that an airplane hit the north tower, he said:

« This is pilot error, » the president recalled saying. « It’s unbelievable that somebody would do this. » Conferring with Andrew H. Card Jr., his White House chief of staff, Bush said, « The guy must have had a heart attack. »

This means that George Bush is a sick man suffering from amnesia, or he lied.
