really didn't contain any specific details on a coming strike

<quoted text>Yes, I noticed all of the leading providers of the canard were left wing loon sites.
leven years after the Sept. 11 attacks, a controversial op-ed piece in The New York Times has rekindled the bitter debate over whether George W. Bush ignored clear warnings that an al Qaeda attack was imminent in 2001. Former Times investigative reporter Kurt Eichenwald, author of the new book 500 Days: Secrets and Lies in the Terror Wars, writes that the most infamous red flag, a now-declassified Aug. 6, 2001, presidential daily briefing with the ominous headline "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S." really didn't contain any specific details on a coming strike. Nevertheless, Eichenwald says he has read other daily briefs, still classified, that warned for months that Osama bin Laden and his al Qaeda terrorist network had "a group presently in the United States" that was preparing a spectacular attack aiming to inflict mass casualties. Did Bush really have a bigger heads-up about 9/11 than previously disclosed? Here, four takeaways from Eichenwald's account:
1. Bush had plenty of reasons to go on alert
For years, we've heard about "then CIA chief George Tenet running around Washington with his hair on fire" trumpeting the looming danger, says Massimo Calabresi at TIME. Then-national security adviser Condoleezza Rice and others insisted that, despite vague warnings, there was "no actionable intelligence" that could have helped defuse the threat. Eichenwald's reporting shows there was "plenty the administration could have been doing to disrupt the plot without knowing the specifics of time and place." Nobody will argue that the Bush administration "distinguished itself in the summer of 2001," says David Frum at The Daily Beast, but Eichenwald is only telling a sliver of the story. The CIA failed both to cooperate with the FBI in blocking the conspirators from entering the U.S., and to share their watch lists with local police — a Maryland state trooper pulled over hijacking pilot Ziad Jarrah for speeding two days before the attacks, and let him go. The "worst mistakes" occurred before Bush ever got his briefings, "and they occurred within the national security agencies themselves."
2. Bush neocons were more worried about Iraq than al Qaeda
One particular passage in Eichenwald's "jaw-dropping scoop" really "reads like a nightmare," says Adam Clark Estes at The Atlantic. He says that neoconservative leaders at the Pentagon convinced the White House early on that "the C.I.A. had been fooled" into believing that al Qaeda was plotting an attack. The neocons thought bin Laden was trying to distract the Bush administration from Saddam Hussein, "whom the neoconservatives saw as a greater threat." Intelligence officials said that was "ridiculous," as an Islamist fundamentalist like bin Laden wouldn't cooperate with a secularist dictator like Hussein, and the CIA presented an analysis essentially pleading with the White House to accept that bin Laden posed a real threat, but the neocons kept the spotlight on Iraq.
3. If anything, this op-ed proves we shouldn't blame Bush
The only thing Eichenwald's so-called scoop reveals, says Mark Finkelstein at News Busters, is how far the anti-Bush press will go to "exploit 9-11 for low partisan purposes." If these murky new tidbits are the best that investigative journalists can come up with, the evidence that George W. Bush ignored indications that al Qaeda was close to pulling off an attack on American soil — or that he could have stopped it — is thin gruel indeed. This new account adds nothing to the historical record: It's "cheap political exploitation and finger-pointing at its basest."
"really didn't contain any specific details on a coming strike"
damn, what kind of enemy doesn't tell you exactly what he's going to do, and when?

you suck at this JimBob

How many terrorist attacks have been accomplished on Obama's watch? Remember you can't count the Ft. Hood terrorist attack because the Obama administration classified it as "workplace violence" and you can't count the Little Rock terrorist attack because this administration classified that as a "drive-by shooting" and you can't count the terrorists involvement in Benghazi because Hitlary and her news media buddies still claim it was the youtube video that sparked outrage or was it a demonstration that just got out of hand or...oh, what the hell does it matter at this point except that it not be classified as what it really is, a terrorist attack on United States soil, so the unimportant details won't hamper Hitlary's run for president. What about Brian Terry's murder? If the drug cartel aren't terrorists then I don't know who would qualify as such! You hypocrites went on and on about Bush not getting up and running out of the room and scaring the hell out of the young children in the classroom he was visiting when he first heard the news about the 9/11 attack. Yet Obama went on to bed after being informed about the real-time terrorist attack on Americans in Benghazi and then flew to Vegas to party with Hollywood's richest 1%er couple and new best friends of the Obama's...Jay Z and Beyonce. Money, money, money, campaign, campaign, campaign!

SENATE SHOWS HEART FOR JOBLESS

Unemployment Benefits Extension Advances In Senate

"For many American families, these benefits were the difference between making ends meet and going hungry or becoming homeless,"

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Tuesday. "In 2012 alone, unemployment insurance helped 2.5 million people, including 600,000 children, stay out of poverty. These families live in red states and blue states. They are Republicans, Democrats and Independents. And we can’t turn our backs on them now."

The Senate bill was co-authored by Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) and Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.), both of whom hail from states with 9 percent unemployment, the highest in the nation.

Obama Obliterates the GOP Claim that Extending Unemployment Benefits Hurts the Unemployed

President Obama responded to the Senate vote to move forward on extension of unemployment benefits by destroying the Republican argument that extending benefits hurts the unemployed.

Video:

The president began by listing the ways that the economy is on the rebound. Obama said we should build on our economic progress by extending insurance for the unemployed. He called unemployed insurance a lifeline for people while they are looking for a new job. The president said that,“If we don’t provide unemployment insurance, it makes it harder for them to find a job.”

Obama said,“This is not an abstraction. These are not statistics.” He reminded Republicans that the unemployed are your friends, your neighbors, and in an economic downturn, they could be you. The president also made the economic case that unemployment insurance creates jobs. He talked about the history of bipartisan action to extend unemployment benefits. The president said that if unemployment benefits don’t get fixed it will hurt 14 million Americans.

Obama obliterated the Republican argument that extending unemployment benefits hurts the unemployed. He said, Now, I’ve heard the argument that extending unemployment benefits That really sells the American people short. I meet a lot of people as president of the United States, and as a candidate for president of the United States, and as a U.S. Senator, and as a state senator, and I can’t name a time when I’ve met an American who would rather have an unemployment check than the pride of having a job. The long term unemployed are not lazy. They are not lacking in motivation. They are coping with the aftermath of the worst economic crisis in generations.”
The president was anticipating the moral argument that many House and Senate Republicans, including Rand Paul and Paul Ryan, have made in the past and will continue to use as justification for opposing extending unemployment benefits.

Their argument is based on old stigma of American culture that paints the unemployed as lazy and undeserving of help. The roots of this argument go back centuries in our country, and conservatives have used this warping of the Protestant work ethic to justify cruelty towards the poor for decades.

President Obama shattered that argument by putting a face on who the unemployed really are. The unemployed aren’t jobless because of a failing of moral character. The are jobless because the financial collapse destroyed the economy. The failure of moral character came from the GOP’s beloved job creators. The unemployed are the victims of their rampant recklessness and greed.

At a time when Republicans are literally taking food and shelter away from the unemployed, President Obama has their back. The president isn’t just fighting for benefits. He is battling the senseless demonization of hard working Americans.

Republicans have no good reason for not extending unemployment benefits, and Obama and Democrats are stripping of the GOP’s mask of faux populism to show the nation who they really are.

EUC benefits haven't been reinstated. The measure still has to pass the Senate again and the House. Just skimming the frightwing headlines again, weren't you.

Benefits collected for over 2 years? Cite your source for that, if you can. According the the Dept. of Labor, even if EUC is extended, the maximum is 73 weeks.

Mitch McConnell Offers To Extend Unemployment Benefits if Democrats Kill Obamacare

Mitch McConnell pulled a deplorable stunt on the Senate floor today when he offered to extend unemployment benefits, but only if Democrats kill Obamacare.

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) offered on the Senate floor to extend unemployment benefits if the Obamacare individual mandate was delayed for a year. He claimed that they would “pay” for the unemployment benefits extension by killing Obamacare. The problem is that the ACA doesn’t add anything to the deficit.

McConnell was trying to eliminate something that reduces the deficit in order to pay for an extension of unemployment benefits. This is how delusional Republicans are about the ACA. They have invented their own reality on healthcare, and this includes their own version of a fiscal impact on the law that doesn’t exist.

Republicans have decided that they will extend unemployment benefits, but only if Democrats and Obama kill Obamacare. This is a non starter, and ruse designed to distract the American people from realizing that Republicans are denying an unemployment benefits to 1.3 million Americans.

While 1.3 million Americans suffer, McConnell and Senate Republicans are playing games.

Speaker Boehner Admits That He Won’t Lift a Finger to Help Unemployed Americans

First off, how about the brass cojones on Boehner to put the word emergency in quotes at the beginning of the press release. For quite a few Americans, this is an emergency. They have had their only source of income unceremoniously cutoff and Boehner and his staff feel that it is best to trivialize it. One can actually imagine Boehner doing air quotes while reading it.

However, what this statement really says is that Boehner is not going to bring this bill up for a vote. To cover himself, he points out that he wants to provide the promise of more jobs to those who are unemployed. Therefore, he wants any extension of UI benefits to be tied to GOP-led bills that are supposed to spur the economy and create jobs. Except, the reality is that the so-called House GOP jobs bill is anything but. It is just an effort to get regulations cut for businesses and tax cuts for the wealthy. In other words, pure and simple trickle-down economics.

Boehner knows that the President and Democrats won’t go for this, no matter how many times the Speaker calls it a ‘jobs’ bill. The other thing that Boehner may want to trade for is the Keystone XL pipeline, which Republicans have constantly touted as both a job creator and energy producer for the country. However, the fact is that the pipeline won’t create a real net benefit in American jobs and will do nothing for improving energy needs and independence for the country. However, what it will do is give the Koch Bros. a profit of $100 billion over time if it is approved.

With most of the country dealing with bitterly cold temperatures and heavy snow, it seems especially cruel to try to extort massive profits for the rich in order to allow the less fortunate to survive. Hopefully, the amount of negative reaction to the House GOP refusing to act on this will force Boehner to cave. But for now, it is apparent that the Republicans are going off of a strategy of being cruel to the poor, especially when you combine this inaction with the recent vote to cut SNAP benefits and GOP-led states refusing to expand Medicaid.

Hey RC Co-Cola, good posts. I saw Bonehead's quote about how he'll tie passage of EUC to that f'ing Keystone pipeline, federal land being opened for "energy exploration" and hacking away at the ACA yet again.

If the regressives thought shutting down the government tanked their popularity, wait and see what happens when they hold 14 million Americans hostage to play their spiteful political games.

Yes, they have to do the coch bros bidding.

What jobs that pipeline would bring would be temporary until they finished ripping up the country and polluting the water to transport oil from Canada to the Gulf to be sold to other foreign countries. We don't need Canada's oil, they need farmers land though to pass through our country. I bet the teabagger CONS are drooling for that campaign $$$$$$$.
