A lot of people are trying to blame President Clinton for 9/11
. A lot of people are trying to blame President Bush. A review in the New York Times
of Bob Woodward’s new book, State of Denial
, says, “in the weeks before the Sept. 11 attacks, Mr. Tenet believed that Mr. Rumsfeld was impeding the effort to develop a coherent strategy to capture or kill Osama bin Laden.” Did you read that? Impeding!
It then goes on to say, “On July 10, 2001, the book says, Mr. Tenet and his counterterrorism chief, J. Cofer Black, met with Ms. Rice at the White House to impress upon her the seriousness of the intelligence the agency was collecting about an impending attack. But both men came away from the meeting feeling that Ms. Rice had not taken the warnings seriously.” Warnings not taken seriously!
Sounds to me like there is plenty of blame to go around. How does Bush keep getting elected, and keep pushing his agenda when books like this exist? Does the country have its head in the sand? Will Bush’s winning streak continue on November 7? Let us hope not.Listen to my song
