from former president george w. bush. tom, again, in real-time, on television we were dealing with the picture and the reality that the building had been struck and then along came that second impact. that changed everything because we knew what this was. >> there was bewilderment before that and there was an urgency. people said something happened at the world trade center, the hole was so large it didn't seem it could be a small plane. i was en route to the studio at the time. a plane had just flown over washington square and flown into the south tower. i knew then we were at war very likely this was a deliberate atalk of unimaginable proportions. >> absolutely. >> we were talking with the bushs a moment ago. the friday before the attack mrs. bush had a book festival and the week before that she a state dinner for the president of mexico. 9/11 changed for everyone. >> people forget how new the presidency was of george w. bush. we were coming off the hotly contested election and then everyone came together, of course in the wake of this. we're going to return to the reading of the

force of the collision. and the hole that's resulting from the two planes. >> we will go to george shea right now, who also witnessed both or one of these collisions. george, can you hear us? >> caller: i can hear you. >> what did you see george? >> caller: i was in the car, coming out of bat battery tunnel, when a large explosion happened. it was larger than a construction explosion. i looked out the window and a tire through through the ground and hit a car and there was a ton of debris falling. i jumped out of the car and ran south of the building because i thought there would be further explosion. >> have you seen anyone injured on the ground, george? >> a man next to me was actually hit by a piece of debris in his arm. they said that someone had been badly hurt in a car ahead of me. i'm not sure if it was the car next to me. i can't verify that. all i can say is that a lot of debris was falling and it was confusing. everyone immediately assumed a bomb exploded. that's a pretty -- you know, thinking that further bombs may explode. sort of a rush away. >> did you see, george wbt

for giving the order. i was so grateful to president clinton for starting the process. george w. bush took up the cause immediately after 9/11 and declared all out war and did his very best. it was president obama who now continues the fight. i'm grateful to all of them. >> we are inspired by your activist, as we were inspired by your son's heroism. thank you for joining us today. >> thank you. >> let's go back to ground zero with alex witt. alex? >> all right, chris. what has been a tradition since the first year after the attacks, the reading of the names of the nearly 3,000 people who died that tuesday morning ten years ago. >> my name is peter. my father worked on the 88th floor of the world trade center. i was 13 when i stood here in 2003 and read a poem about how much i wanted to break down and cry. since then i've stopped crying but i haven't stopped missing my dad. >> we'll have much more from lower manhattan where it's been a very emotional day for everyone. we're going to bring you more personal stories of remembrance. yyou know there are germs on every surface in your mouth

was george tenant's and george recommended no action. >> the next time the satellite went overhead all that was left of the camp was a pile of burning garbage. i found it very upsetting that on the most selfish level, that the choice was not to protect my children but to save the head of this arab hunting camp whose family was about to buy some number of billions of dollars of u.s. fighter aircraft. >> then bin laden struck again. in 2000, al qaeda terrorists used a small boat to bomb the "uss cole" refueling in yemen. 17 american sailors died. >> smart people working counterterrorism cases new early on there was no doubt about it it was an al qaeda operation driven by bin laden. >> in an uproar. essentially the decision was made to put it off to the next administration and not deal with it. >> it wasn't a priority. he hadn't killed enough americans. >> people were focusing on other things. >> doing absolutely nothing on the u.s. as whole was also a response that people took note of. >> no one did anything, off the "uss cole." must have felt made al qaeda feel kind of empowered. >>

decade later, in the lead-up to the next war with iraq the george w. bush administration anticipates similar tactics by saddam, that he will once again attack kuwait's oil fields, or torch his own to slow down advancing u.s. forces. for $2 million, the world's second largest oil field services corporation halliburton is hired to draft terms for a contract to fight oil fires before the war. days before the invasion, officials convene a high-level meeting at the pentagon to arrange contingents for the firefighting contract. halliburton attends and the decision is made in addition halliburton will also get the contract itself for up to $7 billion. without competition, halliburton is designated uniquely capable of providing the firefighting services detailed in the contract uniquely capable, even though other u.s. companies entirely performed the same task during the previous war. also at the pentagon meeting, pointing out the impropriety of halliburton being present while decisions about their contract are being made is bunny greenhouse. >> i said they have to leave, you know because th

exceeded anything that george tenet or i had ever scene. >> let me read you some of the actual chatter that was picked up in that spring and summer. unbelievable news coming in weeks said one. big event. there will be a very, very, very, very big uproar. there will be attacks in the near future. >> tenet told us in his world, quote, the system was blinking red, closed quote and by late july it could not have been any worse. >> the predominant focus and threat of the reporting took us overseas, but we could not discount the possibility of an attack in the homeland, although the data just didn't exist with any specificity. >> they don't tell us when, they don't tell us where they don't tell white house and they don't tell us how. >> based on their research, the families found this testimony hard to believe. >> i've got a question now i'd like to ask you. it was given to me by a number of the members of the families. did you ever see or hear from the fbi, from the cia, from any other intelligence agency, any memos, discussions or anything else between the time you got into office and 9/11

george shea right now who also has witnessed both or within of the collisions. can you hear us? >> i can hear you. >> what did you see? >> i was in a car driving up, just out of the battery tunnel, driving north on west street, with an enormous explosion happened. and i think it was larger than a construction explosion. i looked out the window, and what appeared to be an enormous tire smashing into the ground. and i believe it hit the car to the right of me. and it was just so scary. and there was also a ton of debris falling. and i jumped out of the car, and i ran south away from the building because i thought there would be further explosions. >> and have you seen anyone injured on the ground, george? >> a man next to me was actually hit by a piece of debris on his arm. and they said that someone had been badly hurt in a car ahead of me. i'm not certain if it was the car next to me. and i can't verify that. all i can say is that a lot of debris was falling. it's very confusing because everybody i think immediately assumed that a bomb had exploded. and that's what had people t

director george tenet to lead a new effort instead. >> that is one of my most vivid memories. he said to me we're behind the 8 ball. and the reason he said that, which i didn't know why what he meant at that precise moment is we had information about this meeting with the pakistan scientist and bin laden before 9/11. >> november 2001. mill let larson and tenet at the direction of president george bush are dispatched to pakistan to confront pakistan's president pervez musharraf about the fireside chat that turned up in u.s. intelligence reports the possibility that pakistani nuclear scientists are assisting al qaeda in pursuing a nuclear bomb. >> president musharraf's initial reaction was men in caves can't do this incredulity, which we expected. it's the same incredulity we all felt. >> tenet and larson implore president musharraf to inventory all nuclear material. musharraf downplays the threat of that what he calls men in caves might ever try to acquire such weapons. the extremists that are in pakistan, pakistani taliban, al qaeda, kashmiri groups, you name it. do you think the extremi
