9/11/2001...9:06 a.m.: After brief introductions to the Booker elementary students, President Bush is about to begin reading with the students when Chief of Staff Andrew Card interrupts to whisper to the president, "A second plane hit the other tower, and America's under attack (PHOTO ABOVE)." The president stated later that he decided to continue the lesson rather than alarm the students.
The New York Daily News reveals an excerpt from an upcoming National Geographic Documentary on the eve of the 10th anniversary of 9/11. The excerpt explains the image seen around the world of George Bush receiving the news in a Booker Elementary classroom Sarasota Fl. He describes the moment as "like watching a silent movie."

Pres. George Bush Was the Target Of An Al-Qaeda Assassination Attempt On September 11th 2001 in Sarasota Florida. Zainelabdeen Ibrahim Omer called Sarasota police on Sept. 11 at 4:07 am, see police report, hours before Bush left town with concerns about 3 Sudaneese men in town led by “Ghandi” who had made violent threats.”
“Zainelabdeen Ibrahim Omer, DOB 1/17/1967, see Sarasota Police report above, was living on Parliament St in San Antonio Texas in June of 2001 and appears to have moved to 2566 Hunters Glen Sarasota Fl (apartment complex) sometime prior to the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks, from where he called the cops on his cell phone 941-365-5755″.
Several hours before the alleged assassination attempt took place of President Bush on 9/11/01, Zaine labdeen Ibrahim Omer delivered his warning. Its right there in black and white in the police report, which was taken at 4.07 AM on the morning of September 11.
The Sarasota police immediately called in Secret Service agents guarding the President, who was spending the night at the Colony Beach & Tennis Resort, on Longboat Key, just off Sarasota.Within hours Secret Service agents were searching an apartment in Sarasota, where they took a number of Sudanese men into custody (see Sarasota Police report 9/11/01 above) .
They arrested three occupants from Sudan; they were questioned for the next ten hours, according to one, Fathel Rahman Omer. The Secret Service also raided a beauty supply store in Sarasota, owned by one “Hakim,” who identified the mysterious “Ghandi” as a member of the Sudanese People’s Liberation Army, itself closely allied with the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
Possible Longboat terrorist incident, Is it a clue or is it a coincidence?
By Shay Sullivan, City Editor THE LONGBOAT OBSERVER, Wednesday, September 26, 2001
By now, most everyone knows President George W. Bush began that fateful day, Sept. 11, on Longboat Key, but the FBI is now investigating whether terrorists also began that fateful day here on the island.
At about 6 a.m. Sept. 11, Longboat Key Fire Marshall Carroll Mooneyhan was at the front desk of the Colony Beach & Tennis Resort as Bush prepared for his morning jog. From that vantage point, Mooneyhan overheard a strange exchange between a Colony receptionist and security guard.
A van occupied by men of Middle Eastern descent had pulled up to the Colony stating they had a “poolside” interview with the president, Mooneyhan said. The self-proclaimed reporters then asked for a Secret Service agent by name. Guards from security relayed the request to the receptionist, who had not heard of either the agent or plans for an interview, Mooneyhan said.
The receptionist gave the phone over to a nearby Secret Service agent, who said the same thing — no one knew of an agent by that name or of any poolside interview. The agent told the occupants of the van to contact the president’s public relations office in Washington, D. C., and turned them away from the premises, Mooneyhan said.
In light of the attacks, Mooneyhan wonders if what he witnessed is related to the events of Sept. 11. So does the FBI. “That’s very strange,” said an unnamed agent with the Sarasota field office of the FBI, who directed agents to look into the matter.
Earlier, the FBI questioned a Longboat Key man who also had a strange run-in with a van occupied by men of Middle Eastern descent. At 8:50 a.m. the man stood on the Sarasota bayfront waiting to watch the presidential motorcade pass. A dilapidated van passed him with two men of Middle Eastern descent “screaming out the windows, ‘Down with Bush’ and raising their fists in the air.” The Longboat Key resident later reported the incident to police, who turned the matter over to FBI agents who questioned him.
