No matter how long it's been since Sept. 11, 2001, on every anniversary, we hear a new harrowing story from that infamous day. This year, former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer has been live tweeting his experience, starting at 8:40 a.m. when he was in the motorcade to the elementary school where President George W. Bush was making an appearance, just six minutes before the first tower was hit. His tweets are incredibly insightful, letting us into President Bush's thoughts and showing photos not many of us have ever seen before.
