HE SHOULD HAVE IGNORED HER, HIS PLACE WAS AT THE FRONT:

Rice tells of Bush row after 9/11 (Evening Standard, 06.09.10)

In a heated exchange, Ms Rice had to argue with the US President in Florida not to return to the White House because it was a potential terrorist target.

She told the Channel 4 documentary: "The President got on the phone and he said: 'I'm coming back'.

"I said: 'You cannot come back here. The United States of America is under attack, you have to go to safety. We don't know what is going on here'. He said: 'I'm coming back'. I said: 'You can't'.

"I said to him in a raised voice, and I had never raised my voice to the President before, I said: 'You cannot come back here'. I hung up.


With fellow citizens wrestling the terrorists for control of a plane, the president ought not have been hidden in Nebraska.
