Finally someone has written a book that gives a real timeline of what the Bush White House knew prior to the 9-11 attacks. The titles of the senior briefings that were given to Condeleza Rice and BPresident Bush tell an ominous story.
"Terrorist Groups Said Co-operating on US Hostage Plot" (May 23)
"Bin Ladin's Networks' Plans Advancing" (May 26)
"Bin Ladin Attacks May Be Imminent"(June 23)
"Bin Ladin and Associates Making Near-Term Threats" (June 25)
"Bin Ladin Planning High-Profile Attacks" (June 30),
"Planning for Bin Ladin Attacks Continues, Despite Delays" (July 2)
These all prior to the one that everyone now remembers , “Bin Laden determined to strike in US” (August 6).
Now with all this information and all these warnings why would Bush keep reading about the pet goat when he found out about the attacks? Either he is an idiot, which very well may be the case, or he was not the one making decisions, which is a freightening conclusion.
The book, The Commission - The Uncensored History Of The 9/11 Investigation by Philip Shenon will be published Monday.
