    Evidence piles up that Bush administration got many pre-9/11 warnings - Open Channel

    By Robert Windrem
    NBC News
    On the 11th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil, there is mounting evidence that the Bush administration received more intelligence warnings than previously known prior to the Sept. 11 attacks that killed nearly 3,000.
    Kurt Eichenwald, a former New York Times reporter, wrote in an op-ed piece in Tuesday’s newspaper about a number of previously unknown warnings relayed to the White House by U.S. intelligence in the weeks and months prior to the attacks. Eichenwald wrote of the warnings in his new book, “500 Days: Secrets and Lies in the Terror Wars.”
    And former US intelligence officials say there were even more warnings, pointing to a little noticed section of George Tenet’s memoir, “At the Center of the Storm.”
    In it, Tenet describes a July 10, 2001, meeting at the White House in the office of Condoleezza Rice, then President George W. Bush’s national security adviser. The meeting was not discussed in the 9-11 Commission’s final report on the attacks, although Tenet wrote that he provided information on it to the commission.

    9/11 could of been prevented if it wasn't for neocon arrogance, Bush's pre-occupation with stem cell bullshit and cleaning the brush from his ranch.

    He recieved at least a dozen reports from the CIA that an attack was imminant, but dismissed the information as Clinton Admin nonsense.

    I am trying to find out who was President back in 1993 when the World Trade Center was bombed the first time.Why wasn't that administration held accountable?....Maybe if they had changed the way intelligence was shared among agencies we would not have had the attack again in 2001.

    Just a thought....

    OMG, So 9/11 was in the planning stages for 10 years, 8 of Which Clinton was President, but you only see Bush as Failing to Prevent it, in the less than full year he was in office? No blame for Clinton at all?

    You my Friend are a Partisan Hack of the Highest Order.

    Hmm, it's a good thing they arrested everyone responsible for that then, isn't it?

    Seems to me like that should have served as an even greater warning to the next administration that some serious shit was going down.

    Too bad Bush didn't care until after the deed was done.

    If it was all on Bush, how come Jamie Gorelick, Clinton's Asst. Attorney General and author of the memo preventing sharing of information among law enforcement, hid behind the 9-11 Commission instead of answering questions like everyone else from Clinton and Bush Admins? Why did Sandy Berger, Clinton's NSA Director feel so compelled to steal and destroy documents pertaining to events leading up to 9-11 from The National Archives?

    As others have noted, what specific steps did Clinton take to protect the US from another attack following the '93 bombing?

    For all of the celebration of Obama taking out bin Laden, why didn't Clinton do it when he had the chance?

    With these facts, how could it be all Bush?

    Clinton wasn't President then. He did what he could to tell the incoming Administration about the danger of an attack and they completely dismissed it as nonsense. For 8 months they received reports of an attack was imminant and did nothing about it.

    It is the Presidents job to protect the country. Clinton wasn't President, Bush was.

    Ye-ah...
    Perhaps you missed when Congress accused him of "wagging the dog" in 1998, (supposedly to distract people from the Lewinski affair), when he launched missiles to assassinate Bin Laden in Afghanistan?

    Also, perhaps you missed the fact that the people responsible for the 1993 attack were arrested and put in prison?
