Bush stops himself from using the word "conspiracy", but another word he does use is more revealing

In a recent interview that aired on April 24, Diane Sawyer spoke with former President George W. Bush at his Presidential library dedication. Sawyer asked Bush, "Many people have wondered if it [the Boston bombings] took you right back to right back to 9/11 when you heard it."
Bush responded, "Well, at first I was deeply concerned that there might have been an organized plot...I was deeply concerned that this could have been, um, you know, another consp...uhh, organized, highly organized attack on the country, and it still may be."

Many people have posted this portion of the interview, only focusing on the word that Bush almost said, "conspiracy". My focus is on the word "another". Stands to reason that if the Boston bombings was another conspiracy, there had to be a first one. It also stands to reason that since Sawyer was on the subject of 9/11 and comparing Boston to 9/11, that Bush was practically admitting that 9/11 was a conspiracy.
There will always be those [whether it be Republicans or supporters of Bush himself] that will say, "He wasn't about to say 'conspiracy'. He could have been attempting to say anything, like "conjoined" or "contrived"...anything". Maybe so, but immediately after cutting himself off from saying the word "conspiracy", he follows it by saying "highly organized attack" [and previously stated "organized plot"] which is the very definition of 'conspiracy'. So, regardless if he had never almost said the word or not, he still openly did give the definition of 'conspiracy'.
Many are also focusing on the look on Laura Bush's face as George W. almost says "conspiracy". I honestly did not see any different look on her face as he almost utters the word than at any other time she was looking at him speak. No one seems to be focusing on the word "another". That is very significant, since Bush is known for being on record for rebuking anyone who questions the official story of 9/11 and thinks that event was a conspiracy.
Remember the words spoken by Bush on November 10, 2001? He said at the United Nations, "We must speak the truth about terror. Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September the 11th; malicious lies that attempt to shift the blame away from the terrorists, themselves, away from the guilty."
Why would he have even said that to begin with? It was as obvious then as it is now: to do damage control. To get the word "conspiracy" out of people's mind's before it entered them. Now Bush has been caught in a Freudian slip. The well informed already know 9/11 was a conspiracy. It's just great to finally have evidence that George W. Bush knows it was as well.
