    After the attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, Bush was virtually unseen during the first 11 hours.

    Within two years, he charged into the headwinds of a war that cost billions, decimated cities, claimed the lives of thousands of allied service members and hundreds of thousands of citizens and enemy combatants—the ramifications of which we are still confronting, in horrific ways, to this day.
