Cover Up

By Creature

They did not protect the homeland. Then they covered it up:

Members of the Sept. 11 commission said Sunday they were alarmed that they were told nothing about a July 2001 White House meeting at which George J. Tenet, then director of central intelligence, is reported to have warned Condoleezza Rice, then national security adviser, about an imminent attack by Al Qaeda and failed to persuade her to take action. [...]

The disclosures took members of the bipartisan Sept. 11 commission by surprise last week. Some questioned whether information about the July 10 meeting was intentionally withheld from the panel, the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.

September 11th was the first and most glaring example of Bush incompetence. They were asleep at the wheel and they have been covering it up and scapegoating ever since. I'm disgusted.

And, of course, Rice calls it "simply ludicrous."
