My Concept of Which Scene Got Cut from "Path to 9/11"

(Our POV is through a snipers scope. We see Osama strolling across the grounds of the compound in the crosshairs.)

Sniper guy: We have target in sight. Comfirm -Go or No go?

Cut to darkened room with 2 uptight standard issue white house/CIA suits listening to the transmission. A geeky little wonk lurks in the background, shuffling papers. (Stuart)

CIA Cat #1: Go or No go?

CIA Cat # 2: We gotta ask the boss. Notify the President. NOW!

CIA Cat #1: (picks up the hotline and punches a single number, waits.)

CIA Cat # 1 : He's not answering the private line! Stuart! Go notify the President! We need a verbal from him. NOW!

(Stuart drops his stack of papers and sprints off)

(Cut to Oval Office, it appears empty but we hear giggling and low mummering emiting from under the desk. Phone on desk is blinking and ringing. There is a knock on the door.)

President: Huh?! Hell! who's here?!! (more female gigling) Whaddya want?!

Stuart(from behind door): Excuse me, Mr. President, but it's the boys downstairs...uh, we have the target in sight. We need a Go or No go verbal comfirmation from you. It's urgent.

President: Ahhhhh Dammit! Hey buddy, don't come in here, I'm... uh, getting my trousers altered right now! OK?...Uh tell 'em, tell 'um....uhhhhhhhhhh.....uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...hmmmmmmmmmmm. AW! Owwwwwwww....
No Baby!... (under his breath) dammit, honey I said No teeth!

Stuart: No go...affirmative, sir. Thank You! (Stuart sprints down the hall)


(Ok, so maybe the dialogue and protocol ain't all that accurate-cut me some slack...I'm just a dumb girl f'crying out loud!)
