none of the students sitting in Sandra Kay Daniels' class at Emma E. Booker Elementary School that morning can forget the devastating change in Bush's expression when White House chief of staff Andrew Card whispered the terrible news of the al-Qaeda attack.
Booker Principal Gwendolyn Tose-Rigell, who died in 2007, later insisted, "I don't think anyone could have handled it better. What would it have served if [Bush] had jumped out of his chair and ran out of the room?"
Interesting perspective from Webster Tarpley. His take is different then the conspiracy theorists have been saying about the secret service leaving him the classroom on 911 when Dick Cheney was carried off to a bunker. He then goes on to mention how Bush was a target on the morning of 911 and some info about the wars

If you haven't seen this pretty extensive compilation of the events of that morning. it's worth a look. Warning though...it's total information overload and a lot to wade through, with plenty of contradictory and conflicting information, as many will say in natural during early reporting.

To my basic understanding, isn't the US president the commander and chief of war. This being an act of war, isn't it his responsibility to act accordingly. I think portraying calmness undermines the position he holds and promotes a message of submisiveness
And lack of coping mechanisms.
