9/11, 2008: Episode 6: Goat Story

5:51 AM: Bush gets to the elementary school. I go to shower.

6:07 AM: By 9:07 AM Eastern time, much has occurred. I have finished my shower in 2008. Yet at 9:02:54 AM Eastern, in 2001, the second plane, United Airlines Flight 175, impacts 2 World Trade Center. Both the north and now the south towers are ablaze.

By 6:05 AM Pacific, 9:05 AM Eastern, as the President of the United States listens to the Goat Story, the most famous line of his Presidency is delivered to George W. Bush:
“A second plane has hit the World Trade Center. America is under attack.”
He continues to listen to the children’s story.

6:15 AM Pacific (9:15 AM Eastern): Airports are shutting down across the United States. Two more aircraft are still in the air hijacked. George Bush is finally finishing up listening to the Goat Story.
