Once more...

For effect. The September 11, 2001 Bush Timeline:

September 11, 2001
8:13 a.m.
American Airlines Flight 11 fails to respond to air trafic controllers
Air traffic control manager considers this a possible hijacking.

8:35 a.m.
Bush motorcade leaves for photo-op at Emma Booker Elementary School

8:46 a.m.
Flight 11 strikes North Tower

8:48 a.m.
First news reports appear on TV and radio

8:55 a.m.
Bush motorcade arrives at Emma Booker Elementary School
Karl Rove or Andrew Card informs Bush of the first WTC crash

9:03 a.m.
Bush enters Sandra Kay Daniels' second-grade classroom

9:03 a.m.
Flight 175 strikes South Tower
Bush poses for pictures with the students and teachers.

9:06 a.m.
Andrew Card informs Bush of the second WTC crash;
"A second plane has hit the World Trade Center."
"America is under attack"

9:06 - 9:12 a.m.
Bush listens as second-graders take turns reading a story called 'The Pet Goat'

9:16 - 9:29 a.m.
Bush works with his staff in an empty classroom preparing for an upcoming speech.

9:29 a.m.
Bush gives a brief speech and poses for more photos at Emma Booker Elementary School

9:34 a.m.
Bush's motorcade leaves Booker Elementary School for
Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport

9:38 a.m.
Flight 77 crashes into the Pentagon.

9:56 a.m.
Bush departs from Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport
on Air Force One

This leaves out a few items that are disputed/denied by the current administration, such as the report that Bush received a phone call enroute to the photo-op that something very unusual was occurring in our airspace on that day (and decided to go ahead with the photo-op anyway).
