    Condi told us just today that was the title to the Aug. 6, 2001 PDB (Presidential Daily Briefing). But of course, the briefing was held between the brush cleaning, bullshit scooping chores of typical Western Whitehouse chores and just maybe it was overlooked or not taken too seriously. Goodness. Did she actually mean that the PDB's are not important?

    on edit: I added an "s" to "Preidential"

    Maybe it was that there wasn't an immediate threat-I have to go look it up.

    If I remember correctly, she said the report showed a history of the terrorist attacks from Al-Qaida, but gave no indication as to the possibility or nature of any future attacks.

    She said there was "no specific information,only vague references. This isn't about Bush ignoring anything,but it seems you are trying to make it sound that way.

    The title doesn't indicate anything historical, it indicates a need to address an urgent dilemma. How else could one interpret those words?

    I'm aware of that, But you make it sound as if they blew it off,when they didn't. She said there was no immediate threat in that briefing. Big title,but nothing immediate was in it-what were they supposed to do-look in their crystal balls?

    The title says he is determined. The South was determined to win the War Between the States, the Nazis were determined to exterminate the Jews, and the Arabs, recently, were determined to wipe out Israel. Determination just means you have an idea and you are motivated to have it succeed. We have no idea what was in the memo, or if it said anything more specific abouthow OBL planned to attack.

    Yeah, you're right. It was just a title and maybe it got lost in meaning amongst all the face saving of the Enron, Worldcom, Tyco and other more urgent national concerns. Just what did that PDB say, anyway, to be so distracting and unavailing as to it's title?

    It was hard for us to tell what it said,because those rude ass***** were interupting Rice too much. There was no specific threat to the U.S. in the briefing!!!!
