The Moment When President Bush Was Informed About 9/11 Terrorist Attack 2001
Then-President Geory W. Bush was visiting Sarasota, just about seven months into his presidency, when he found out what was happening.
Bush was on his way to Emma E. Booker Elementary School when the first plane crashed at the World Trade Center in New York City.
The president was sitting in Room 301, a second-grade classroom at the school, reading with students when his chief of staff told him about the second crash.
“A second plane has hit the second tower,” Andrew Card whispered to him. “ America is under attack.”
Bush reacted to the news with a look of shock, and said a week later in a news conference according to History.com, “I'm sitting in the midst of a classroom with little kids, listening to a children's story and I realized I'm the commander in chief and the country has just come under attack.”
