The cause of 9/11 has always been thought of us as a “series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group, Al-Qaeda against the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001” (The Daily Telegraph, 2011). However, over the years there have been many speculations and theories regarding the underlying cause of 9/11 as some state that their might have been insider trading or a growing case of air defense stand down led by the president at that time, George W. Bush. Whether that may be the case or not, it is important to notice that loyal patriots have strived to create an environment where the people doing duty to the nation with their civic job are respected and brought upon shine. Although we can sit up here in our modern world and state that the result of 9/11 was by a variety of inside jobs led by George W. Bush, it should be counterfeited that Americans have represented and dedicated their time to display the lives of those lovely citizens during that time period.
To start off, it should be known that George W. Bush knew about the attack beforehand and refrained from mentioning anything to the government within the last 12 hours of the instantiation of the gruesome attack of 9/11. For example, Cofer Black, a well-acquainted individual in the congress stated: “ It was very evident that we were going to be struck, we were gonna be struck hard and lots of Americans were going to die.” (Herzenhorn, 2015). Furthermore, the CIA’s famous Presidential Daily Brief stated: “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in the U.S” (Brown, 2015). These go to show the pathways of information that were in the hands of George W. Bush before 9/11; however, in an attempt to be quiet and even inflict the country, Bush decided not to address the arguments being made by people around the domestic nation.
Even on September 11, 2001, George W. Bush stayed away from the political hierarchy of America and attended different buildings to participate in non-political activities on that very morning. Specifically, on that morning, George W. Bush “was famously reading to children at Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Fla., when an aide whispered in his ear about the first plane hitting the World Trade Center’s North Tower” (National Archives, 2018). The source depicted here ensures that Bush had knowledge about this event but didn’t really have anything to do about it.
On the other hand, what makes this event even more crazy is that George W. Bush left the location of governing just to avoid these conflicts. This led to many setbacks for Bush as he was heavily criticized based on the actions that he committed and was already convicted by many just hours after the tragic event had occurred. John Kerry, a famous politician stated in the book Lexile (2004) that George W. Bush was trying look like “Mr. Nice” guy in his speech after the catastrophic event which caused him defamed for not taking into consideration the consequences that had resulted as a cause of the 9/11 terrorist attack.
These few events out of many underlie the conspiracy that George W. Bush was responsible for allowing the 9/11 terrorist attacks to come to fruition because if Bush knew about this, then he should have created actions to allow for the downfall of the attack.
