GOP Senators Embraced Condi as Sec of State After She Ignored 9/11 Warnings, But Pummel Susan Rice

http://www.truth-out.org/buzzflash/commentary/item/17659-gop-senators-embraced-condi-rice-as-secretary-of-state-after-she-ignored-9-11-warnings-but-pummel-susan-rice

NBC reports today that "GOP senators not satisfied with Rice explanation of Benghazi aftermath",
and after a "candid" meeting with Ambassador Rice, McCain claims that he is "significantly troubled" with her answers.

BuzzFlash has been around for 12 years, and we remember quite well that when Condi Rice was George W. Bush's National Security Advisor, both she and Bush ignored warnings of possible impending Al Qaeda hijackings in the US. This, we remind you, was prior to the fateful day of 9/11, in which more than 3000 people died in the attacks on the Twin Towers.

For a while after 9/11, Bush and Rice denied receiving any alerts. Then, after months passed and a CIA intelligence briefing was disclosed that Al Qaeda was determined to strike in the US, Bush and Rice changed their tune by parsing their response to indicate that they were never informed of hijackings that would be flown into buildings, so they didn't do anything.

The unearthed memo, which was the most sensational made public (while other warnings were revealed even in the relatively whitewashed 9/11 hearings), was dated August 6, 2001. It was the daily presidential intelligence briefing and was seen by both Bush (who blew off the CIA liaison who presented it to him at Bush's ranch in Texas) and Rice.

Journalist Kurt Eichenwald wrote an op-ed in the September 10, 2012 New York Times that reveals how the White House was virtually defiant in not taking any preventive action against Al Qaeda prior to 9/11. Eichenwald received access to written warnings in the hands of the White House that preceded the August 6 memo:

4. that is what pisses me off the most about these jerks- we weren't allowed to say anything

 


They were brazenly incompetent (or worse) on 9/11 resulting in the deaths of thousands

used that for even more brazenly incompetent attacks on innocent nations resulting in the deaths of millions

(wasted Trillions handing it out to fat cat war profiteering friends, now they blame the debt on the poor)

and they go and and on about this bullshit and how they can't get heard on the 'liberal' media
