Moment former US President George W. Bush found out about 9/11 attacks revisited

On the 20-year anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, the man who first broke the news to former President George W Bush has spoken about the moment.

Sky News spoke to former White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card.

President Bush was in a Florida classroom at the time he was told a second plane had flown into the second building.

"I honestly believe he was thinking about the burden that he accepted when he took the oath of office," Mr Card said.

"I’d like to say that’s why he became the president.

"And I was very impressed that he did nothing to introduce fear to those second-graders, he did nothing to demonstrate fear to the media that would’ve satisfied the terrorists all around the world."
