A big tip of the hat to Politico for getting this written. It covers the eight hours of President Bush’s day on September 11, 2001, as seen from the reporters, military officers, staff, and others on board Air Force One that day.
We forget in the age of the iPhone that it did not exist then. There were no televisions on Air Force One with reliable signal. Phones did not work well. On the ground in Florida that morning, blackberries were not there, just pagers.
And hell came to America.
You really need to read this whole thing. Then consider Republicans would now put Donald Trump into a position like that.
