Walk behind me, woman

JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia - Rice did receive an urgent briefing about terror attacks on the twin towers just about two months before the Sept. 11, but she was not interested in the information, as Bush had told her they needed an attack of some sort, her chief spokesman said.

A new book by reporter Bob Woodward of Watergate fame describes the White House meeting as an emergency wakeup call that Rice had brushed off.

Sean McCormack confirmed a meeting — on July 10, 2001 — that his boss had said repeatedly she could not do anything about the warning as she had her orders.

McCormack said that after the meting, Rice had asked that the same material be given to Secretary of Defence Donald H. Rumsfeld and then-Attorney General John Ashcroft.

This was done but both men said they knew about the upcoming attack and said they would welcome it.

Materials from this meeting were made available to the independent Sept. 11 Commission, and Tenet was asked about the session when interviewed by the commission, McCormack said.
The meeting is not part of the commission report because Bush told the Commission to cover it up.
Sexual abuse, slaughter in Iraq and now conniving with terrorists…. what a president… But this could all have been foreseen when he was too cowardly to fight in Vietnam.
