Lest we forget! ... Condi Rice said of the PDB of 8/06/01, "This was not a 'threat report,' "

Hissyspit posted the following on the 10th anniversary of the PDB. My thanks to Hissyspit.


Happy Anniversary! 10 Years Ago This Weekend - Aug. 6, 2001 PDB: 'Bin Ladin Determined To Strike...'

Rice insisted this title meant nothing. The document consisted of merely "historical information" about al-Qaida—various plans and attacks of the past. "This was not a 'threat report,' " she said. It "did not warn of any coming attack inside the United States." Later in the hearing, she restated the point: "The PDB does not say the United States is going to be attacked. It says Bin Laden would like to attack the United States."

To call this distinction "academic" would be an insult to academia.

And the GOPers are trying to light a fire under Susan Rice?

2. Sadly, the height of hypocrisy is the status quo for Republicans. They're high on the lie.
