You're on a beach. You're deeply deeply relaxed. Sailboats pass effortlessly by. Take yourself back in time to 911. The President of the United States of America is reading a story from Hustler Magazine to a group of kindergarten children. His Chief of Staff enters stage left. He whispers into the President's ear, "Mr. President. The United States of America is under attack. The World Trade Center has just been demolished, the Pentagon's Western Wall has been knocked down, and another missile is headed for either the Capitol or the White House." President Bush replies, "Give me a few minutes Andy, I'm just getting to my favorite part here, 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf'." Five minutes later the President says "good bye" to the children and then he says to his Chief of Staff, "Get me Dick Cheney on the phone." For two full hours President Bush was unable to reach Vice President Dick Cheney on the phone. The Vice President saw "Decider" on his call display and refused to pick it up.
