This is the Leader. The Commander-in-chief.
Yet he sat there for how long ?
This is not right.
Why would he do that ?
There was no reaction at all.
I can`t imagine a leader of another country acting in this way.
You`d be up and out that door in a flash.
Yet he just sat there and pretended to listen to those kids.
What was he thinking of ?
I honestly think he did the right thing. What could he have done at that moment? If he left in a panic, remember at THAT time there was no way to
broadcast a message from AirForce One on TV... So he decided to stay calm and leave rather than run away. I just think it was his mind-set. He also
wanted to return to Washington, but was advised not to and then finally DEMANDED to return to the White House, according to Condi in her new book. So,
if he did leave in a panic, get carried out of there by the Secret Service, many people would jump to the conclusion that there was intel of a direct
threat to the President. People would have panicked even more. He made a good decision, to act calm in the face of disaster, mainly in the hopes that
this would help keep the nation calm during what was obviously a crisis.
For that matter, if he knew in advance about the attacks, or been involved in planning them, wouldn't he make a big show of getting to safety to
convince the public that even he was in danger?
