We knew about Osama Bin Ladin and the threat of terrorists using
planes as bombs long before 9-11, yet nothing was done to prevent it.
Neocons Convinced Bush to Ignore Al Qaeda Attack Warnings Leading Up to 9/11
When people adopt a highly rationalized worldview designed to
justify whatever it is that they want to do, there's no diverting them
from their plan -- even in the face of evidence that suggests their
plan will lead to disaster. Such was the case with President George W.
Bush, according to author Kurt Eichenwald, in the days leading up to
the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
While it's long been known that Bush was briefed in August of that
year about the possibility of an imminent attack, Eichenwald has
uncovered evidence of a steady stream of CIA warnings about al Qaeda
activity in the U.S. that began in May 2001. From Eichenwald's op-ed
in today's New York Times:
The direct warnings to Mr. Bush about the possibility of a Qaeda
attack began in the spring of 2001. By May 1, the Central Intelligence
Agency told the White House of a report that “a group presently in the
United States” was planning a terrorist operation. Weeks later, on
June 22, the daily brief reported that Qaeda strikes could be
“imminent,” although intelligence suggested the time frame was
For the Bush administration, it was a highly inconvenient stream of
information, bent as it was on invading Iraq. So the neocons driving
the Bush foreign policy arrived at a novel reading of the situation:
Osama Bin Laden was simply trying to divert the administration's
attention from Iraq, because he was in league with Saddam Hussein.
An intelligence official and a member of the Bush administration both
told me in interviews that the neoconservative leaders who had
recently assumed power at the Pentagon were warning the White House
that the C.I.A. had been fooled; according to this theory, Bin Laden
was merely pretending to be planning an attack to distract the
administration from Saddam Hussein, whom the neoconservatives saw as a
greater threat. Intelligence officials, these sources said, protested
that the idea of Bin Laden, an Islamic fundamentalist, conspiring with
Mr. Hussein, an Iraqi secularist, was ridiculous, but the
neoconservatives’ suspicions were nevertheless carrying the day.
At one meeting of intelligence officials, Eichenwald reports, an
exasperated officer suggested that the whole counter-terrorism team
put in for transfers to other departments in order to avoid being left
holding the bag when the attack inevitably came to pass.
There's no way to know whether the attacks on the World Trade Center,
the Pentagon, and whatever target had been intended for the plane that
went down in Shanksville, Penn., could have been prevented based on
the available evidence. But Eichenwald's reporting stunningly reveals
the lie-steeped hubris with which U.S. foreign policy was conducted
under George W. Bush, and a callous disregard for the safety of the
Together, we can change the world, one mind at a time.
Have a great day,

If you really want to be technical Col. Oliver North addressed the issue in the 80's reporting that Bin Laden was a very real threat then. This country is continously getting threats from these cowards so how do we respond to all of them? I say close our borders and take care of our own. They pick a fight then we destroy them completely but due to the bleeding heart liberals in this great county that will never happen. obama did nothing but follow the path that was already laid out and as a so-called president obama is a joke and a tragedy for this nation!
