Of the many stunning images taken on September 11, 2001 that have become permanently seared into the American psyche, the image of President George W. Bush being told the nation was under attack while in front of a classroom full of children is among the most striking. The man who whispered "America is under attack" into the president's ear was his chief of staff, Andrew Card. Card spoke about his experience that day with the BBC's Mark Mandell.
