      I think the larger point is that Bush the elder was put in charge in the event of a "national security crisis."  While I'm not aware of the full body of evidence on this point, it seems Bush/Rumsfeld/Cheney team have made a habit of preparing for, and profiting from, NSC's over the past 40+ years.  Maybe Bush got the VP nod b/c he/Baker was the one that pulled off the October surprise.

      Certainly, his son is the person who profited (in terms of power) the most from the NSC created by 9/11.
