During a town hall meeting, George W. Bush is asked about September 11th.  His response has been the focus of many discussions around the internet.  This is an attempt to find the facts. 

President George Bush recalls:
 
December 4, 2001
Excerpt of Bush's remarks published in Guardian:
 
President George Bush added a new and bizarre twist last night to the folklore surrounding September 11 when he revealed his initial reaction to the first plane hitting the World Trade Centre. In answer to a question from an eight-year-old in Florida, he said his first thought was: "There's one terrible pilot." ...

He said yesterday: "I saw an airplane hit the tower - the TV was obviously on - and I used to fly myself, and I said, 'There's one terrible pilot.' And I said, 'It must have been a horrible accident.'"

Of the second strike, Mr Bush told the youngster: "I wasn't sure what to think at first. You know, I grew up in a period of time where the idea of America being under attack never entered my mind - just like your daddy and mother's mind probably. And I started thinking hard in that very brief period of time about what it meant to be under attack. I knew that when I got all the facts, there would be hell to pay for attacking America."

The story that he was watching TV contradicts reports from correspondents at the time that he got the news in a phone call from his national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice. It also adds further puzzles: why he was being made to wait; why he did not at least delay his entry into the classroom; and why is it obvious that an elementary school would have a TV set in the corridor?

Bush's comments in response to the youth's question are also at odds with the reporting of one of the pool reporters who was present in the school and in the second-grade classroom.  Bill Sammon reports that there was no TV yet available to the president before he entered the second grade classroom.  Sammon nonchalantly notes however that the president did draft "emergency funding" after learning of the first plane crash and before he went into the second grade classroom.
 
 
The only known videotape of the actual and live first plane crash into the world trade center is that of the Naudet brothers.
 
CNN breaking news September 11, 2001
 
All of a sudden during the commercial break, everybody started running through the newsroom, and I turned around and I said, "Wait a minute. Wait a minute. What's going on?" And one of the vice presidents said unconfirmed reports of a plane into the World Trade Center. Thirty seconds later, I hear in my earpiece from the control room, get to the set. Get to the set. We're going into breaking news, and up comes the picture of the World Trade Center Tower with a huge, smoking, gaping hole in it, and I said "Holy God."

This just in. You are looking at obviously a very disturbing live shot there. That is the World Trade Center and we have unconfirmed reports this morning that a plane has crashed into one of the towers of the World Trade Center. The CNN Center right now is just beginning to work on this story.

Not one of these websites claims to have shown the actual footage of the very first plane hit into the twin towers.  The only known footage known to have been taken is reportedly that by the Naudet brothers.  the pair, Jules and Gedeon Naudet were filming a documentary of New York firefighters that morning. 
 
It is unclear, even over two years later, whether this footage was ever released the same day, or the next day, or any day subsequently, before the CBS special.
 
Excerpt:
 

9/11 is a documentary film about the September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attacks in New York, in which two planes crashed into the two buildings of the World Trade Center. The film was directed by Jules Naudet, Gideon Naudet, and James Hanlon.

The Naudet brothers were originally filming a rookie on the New York City Fire Department with the intention of making a film about the rookie's experience. Called out on a gas leak, one of the brothers goes to check it out when a plane flies by overhead; the cameraman turns to follow the plane and records the only known footage of the first plane hitting the towers.

Analysis you don't want to miss.
 
The story of the 'Fireman's Video' is well known. Two French filmmakers, the Naudet Brothers, were in New York on September 11 making a documentary about the New York Fire Service. The footage shows that, while filming in Canal Street, firemen and crew are distracted by a plane flying low overhead. The camera operator instinctively turns his camera towards the North Tower and, for little more than a second or so, we get a clear view of the plane crashing into the tower. It is a precious, priceless second. It is the one-second of video that really makes the sinister Bush junta nervous. It really gives them nightmares. They really didn't want a professional cameraman to catch that moment on broadcast-quality tape.

If you've got it on tape I strongly suggest you take another look at it, with the pause and frame-forward buttons at the ready. If you don't have it taped you can purchase the documentary in which it appears on video and DVD. It's called simply '9/11'.

Alternatively, download the Fireman's Video in QuickTime (370 Kb). It's not quite as revealing as a good video or DVD copy played through your TV, but it's good enough to see the action and has useful single frame forward and back buttons.

When seen at full speed, you might first of all think that there isn't a great deal to see. There's half a second or so when we see the plane flying through the air then it smashes into the tower, creating an explosion and leaving a great gash across the building. Notice though that immediately before it hits the building the plane emits a brief, bright flash. Notice too that the scar it leaves on the building is rather larger than seems appropriate for the size of the aircraft.

Now pause the sequence at the beginning and advance it frame by frame. Firstly, look at the plane. Does that look like a Boeing jet to you? Is its wingspan wide enough? Does it have engines attached to its wings?  ...  http://www.serendipity.li/wot/aa11.htm
