The Deafness Before the Storm
By KURT EICHENWALD
Published: September 10, 2012 913 Comments

IT was perhaps the most famous presidential briefing in history.

AUGUST 6, 2001
On Aug. 6, 2001, President George W. Bush received a classified review of the threats posed by Osama bin Laden and his terrorist network, Al Qaeda. That morning’s “presidential daily brief”— the top-secret document prepared by America’s intelligence agencies — featured the now-infamous heading:“Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” A few weeks later, on 9/11, Al Qaeda accomplished that goal.

The Deafness Before the Storm
By KURT EICHENWALD
Published: September 10, 2012
On April 10, 2004, the Bush White House declassified that daily brief — and only that daily brief — in response to pressure from the 9/11 Commission, which was investigating the events leading to the attack.

Administration officials dismissed the document’s significance, saying that, despite the jaw-dropping headline, it was only an assessment of Al Qaeda’s history, not a warning of the impending attack. While some critics considered that claim absurd, a close reading of the brief showed that the argument had some validity.

That is, unless it was read in conjunction with the daily briefs preceding Aug. 6, the ones the Bush administration would not release.

While those documents are still not public, I have read excerpts from many of them, along with other recently declassified records, and come to an inescapable conclusion: the administration’s reaction to what Mr. Bush was told in the weeks before that infamous briefing reflected significantly more negligence than has been disclosed.

Why did Bush get off the hook? The man knew, prior to the attack on America.

What did he do? Nothing! Not a damn thing, but plan another vacation, to clear brush on the ranch in Crawford Texas. Clear brush for more illegals to walk into America. That too is another story that happened under George W. Bush, all of those illegals that walked out of Mexico into America, numbering into the millions under George W. Bush.

All the Republicans can do is change the story. Obama wasn't President during the invasion of Iraq. President Bush was trying to watch. But planning yet another vacation.

Can't fault him for that, he was too busy giving tax cut to corporations so more jobs can be created. We had a growth spurt during the 8 years of his presidency more than during Clinton's era.

Here is what I have been saying. You have some stupid fool on here trying to change the subject.

From an Iraq Invasion to ObamaCare.

How can a commission appointed to find out the facts, find out what two will say, when both are ushered in BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.

That means THE PUBLIC WILL NEVER KNOW. SOMETHING FISHY went on, lies to be told. America knows George W. Bush is a public liar.

Remember this:
I am a "UNITER, not a DIVIDER." The man DIVIDED the NATION.

If you think it wasn't true, all you have to do, is look back to November 6, 2012

Remember the 2012 Republican Convention, Where was George W. Bush. Before the Convention a storm was brewing!

Over the Democrat Convention was a RAINBOW!

Plus the Great Bill Clinton was there!

Are you completely insane? Hell do you ever read? Bill Clinton tossed more jobs than president Bush received credit for in eight years.

Bush and Cheney both lied to start wars they were told to start from the suits.Once this was done they were passed profits from the suits for their collective schemes. Bush chooped wood in texas while millions of illegals came into the country, nothing like helpin out the midlle class huh georgie. Cheney went fly fishing in wyoming and shot a fellow hunter in the face while pheasant hunting, this little hunting accident wasnt reported for 24-hours and the injured man apologised to cheney for letting his face get in the way of cheneys shot. Now obama is getting rich the same way bush and cheney did, with of course the help of all those illegals that voted for him courtesy of bush. The sad reality finally being seen by the sheeple is that bush and obama are birds of the same feather and the milldle class is now doomed!!! Liberal socialits and rinos, what a combination.

I was told that the trickle down economics always work, Bill Clinton's job growth was credited to Reaganomics and the Housing crash in late Bush term was caused by Clinton's careless de-regulation of financial sector.

Why did Bush get off the hook?

The man knew, prior to the attack on America, how it was going to happen, where the strick would occur.

What did George W. Bush do? He planned another vacation into Crawford Texas to his ranch.

Going to your own house my be a vacation in your holler, hilljack, but in the real world, it's not.
Now, why isn't Clinton in prison for his negligence that emboldened Islamic terrorism? He could have prevented 9/11 from happening if he had worried about his job rather than fat girl slobbin' his knob.

why did Obama get off the hook for breaking constitutional law when he ordered strikes on Libya?

Bush had congressional approval.

You have your criminals mixed up.

Obama knew that the Embassy attack was going to occur, then watched it on live feed as entertainment.

Exactly, Hitler had his parliament approved when he decided to invade Poland. All Bush did was follow the legislature branch. True democracy.

I just wish that more GI's were killed and not injured so we the taxpayers are not stuck with a huge VA bill... Kudos to Bush for veto the body armor bill that would have saved tons of their lives and we would end up paying for their medical bills...
That's disgusting how can you say that? Very disrespectful!
