Where was Warren Buffett on 9/11?

In response to my post on Warren Buffett stating that gold investors want to hide in caves, I stated that "Rumors are already circulating that on 9-11, when then-President George Bush was taken to the underground base in Omaha, he ran into Buffett there."

An EPJ reader emails:
I'm not sure it was a rumor.
He then sends along a link to a story that starts: 

So where was Warren Buffett the morning of 9/11 and what was he doing? 
Mr. Buffett was reportedly at his home in Omaha, Nebraska watching TV when he heard about the terrorist attacks.  He was getting ready to host his "last annual golf charity event" which just happened to be at the U.S. Strategic Command headquarters located at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha.  Offutt AFB is, coincidentally, where President G. W. Bush flew to on Air Force One later in the day for "safety." 


  1. It must be nice to get invited to the bunker. The world would hate to lose the world's best and brightest wealth producers.

  2. Buffett the duffer? Did I miss that section in his bio? I thought he played bridge.
