The report (cough) was at best far delayed for who knows what purpose, but it doesn't say why orders never came from on high, or where Hillary and Obama were for 9 hours. One thing though it didn't state that contradicts the CYA report is there was an unarmed drone that was giving real time facts and photo's.

Roemer then asked Tenet if he mentioned Moussaoui to President Bush at one of their frequent morning briefings. Tenet replied, "I was not in briefings at this time." Bush, he noted, "was on vacation." He added that he didn't see the president at all in August 2001. During the entire month, Bush was at his ranch in Texas. "You never talked with him?" Roemer asked. "No," Tenet replied. By the way, for much of August, Tenet too was, as he put it, "on leave."

And there you have it. National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice has made a big point of the fact that Tenet briefed the president nearly every day. Yet at the peak moment of threat, the two didn't talk at all. At a time when action was needed, and orders for action had to come from the top, the man at the top was resting undisturbed.

Throughout that summer, we now well know, Tenet, Richard Clarke, and several other officials were running around with their "hair on fire," warning that al-Qaida was about to unleash a monumental attack. On Aug. 6, Bush was given the now-famous President's Daily Brief (by one of Tenet's underlings), warning that this attack might take place "inside the United States." For the previous few years—as Philip Zelikow, the commission's staff director, revealed this morning—the CIA had issued several warnings that terrorists might fly commercial airplanes into buildings or cities.

And now, we learn today, at this peak moment, Tenet hears about Moussaoui. Someone might have added 2 + 2 + 2 and possibly busted up the conspiracy. But the president was down on the ranch, taking it easy. Tenet wasn't with him. Tenet never talked with him. Rice—as she has testified—wasn't with Bush, either. He was on his own and, willfully, out of touch.

A USA Today story, written right before Bush took off, reported that the vacation—scheduled to last from Aug. 3 to Sept. 3—would tie one of Richard Nixon's as the longest that any president had ever taken. A week before he left, Bush made a videotaped message for the Boy Scouts of America. On the tape, he said, "I'll be going to my ranch in Crawford, where I'll work and take a little time off. I think it is so important for the president to spend some time away from Washington, in the heartland of America."

Again. The investigation will delve deeper into why our Commander in Chief was MIA, and our Secretary of State had no clue about which story she should go with, the truth, or the fairy tale about the video that offended the Muslims.

Maybe they will figure out why the time machine didn't work so they could put troops in before the attack occurred?

The more truth that comes out the worse Hillary, and Obama look. Neither one can account for their time while this massacre was taking place. That is the sad part. It is also the part that will get them in the most trouble in the end.

How could all the Republicans be so wrong on the facts when they have had 2 years of Hearings, Documents and witnesses?
Looks as if clearly those accounts in the press provided by Issa and Republicans were absolute lies for political traction.
Republicans have spent the last 6 years hoping Obama screws up as bad as Gdub did. It hasn't happened and it won’t, but keep hoping guys, maybe 3,000 Americans will die in a terrorist attack. What’s that – oh no, 4 died in Benghazi ...
