Romney Has Given Two Version Of His 9/11 Experience
Romney's description of his 9/11 experience in a speech today differs in one detail from his recollection in his 2002 memoir. A Romney spokesman did not respond to a BuzzFeed request of clarification of how Romney learned of the attacks.
"I was on the phone to Salt Lake City, doing a radio interview. The interviewer interrupted to say there were reports that a plane had hit the World Trade Center. I hung up and turned on the small TV in the office."
"Someone rushed into our office and said a plane had hit the World Trade Center. I turned the small TV on desk there and watched in shock as flames and smoke erupted from the north tower."
