#5 From Politico, at the end of an article claiming this is a Trump-bashing speech:

In an unsolicited response to the speech, Trump White House director of strategic response Steven Cheung pointed to a comment Thursday from a Bush spokesman disputing that Trump was the target of the former president's remarks. "The themes President Bush spoke about today are really the same themes he has spoken about for the last two decades," the Bush spokesman had said.

#7 
"These demands are not open to negotiation or discussion. The Taliban must act, and act immediately. They will hand over the terrorists, or they will share in their fate."
George W. Bush, Statement To Joint Session Of Congress September 20th 2001

October 17 2001:
SoS Powell offers 'moderate Taliban' future role in Afghan government.


As early as 2001 the Bush administration's policy and public messaging regarding 9/11 was objectively inconsistent and incoherent.

IMO a 'RINO' was the worst kind of politician to be in office on 9/11. He was prone to err on the dovish side but would not be criticized for such errors.

The Democrats would agree on policy and the Republicans would loyally stay silent.
