meeting down in the president's emergency operations center. when it came time for the end of the day, the president went off to the white house mansion. to go to bed. i went back to my office in the west wing and all of a sudden two secret service agents came in, and literally lifted me out of my chair, and started running down the corridors of the white house to take me down to a bunker. and that was because there was a report that the plane had entered the airspace near washington, and so i'm down in this bunker, and down comes the president. carrying the dog, and then the first lady comes down carrying the cat. it was a long day. the terrorists were there. >> and i remember it was probably around 8:00 p.m. that night. i had heard someone yell out, united states marine corps, anybody here? and god gifted me with a big mouth and big lungs and even though i was tired i started
