Bush and Rice Can't Handle the Truth: Clinton Administration Provided Intelligence Information about Dangers
Having read Richard Clarke's book, Against All Enemies, I knew that the Clinton administration had provided intelligence to the Bush administration about the dangers of Bin Laden and his group. Even though Sec. of State Rice has denied receiving information, the material is out there for everyone to see.
Raw Story has it:
...However, RAW STORY has found that just five days after President George W. Bush was sworn into office, a memo from counter-terrorism expert Richard A. Clarke to Rice included the 2000 document, "Strategy for Eliminating the Threat from the Jihadist Networks of al-Qida: Status and Prospects." This document devotes over 2 of its 13 pages of material to specifically addressing strategies for securing Pakistan's cooperation in airstrikes against al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan....
The current administration has lied us to the American people time and time again. Now they've done it again.
What would have happened if Bush, Rice, and the rest of them had done something about that Presidential Daily Briefing in the summer of 2001 that said 'Bin Laden determined to strike inside the U.S.'? Bush stayed on vacation and ignored the warnings.
