In a piece asking whether the United Kingdom’s new prime minister, Theresa May, will revive the “special” relationship between the U.K. and United States, NBC News went on to claim that at the time of 9/11, Tony Blair was the stronger leader of the two longtime allies compared to George W. Bush. Read it for yourself:

But sometimes the relationship works the other way. When President George W. Bush took office in 2001, Tony Blair was the senior figure, having been prime minister since 1997. He was a source of strength when Bush, new to office, was shattered by the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, said Anthony Seldon, who is writing a book on the U.S.-U.K. relationship, called “Special.”
