On The Eve of Rice's Testimony, Here's A Little Refresher For You All
There are many time-lines now developed, but this one is pretty good one.

If you are new to the DU, then please take a deep breath and then visit the following link to familiarize yourself with what this 9/11 Commission ALREADY has heard about, but is not admitting or acknowledging or permitting to be aired.

And if you are an old DU'er, like me, then take a moment to review this nifty little time-line one more time so your mind will be prepared for every filthy, rehearsed lie that Condi Rice will utter tomorrow on behalf of President George W. Bush:

I'll be up and watching out here on the Pacific Coast at 6:00 AM sharp.

8. Welcome to the Underground, Undercutter.
Check out the great research done here at the DU during those days that followed the events of 9/11. Chilling how much our corporate-run government has lied to protect Bush and Cheney.

7. Welcome to the DU, Sticky.
There's a lot on the 9/11 in the archives here at the DU. When you have a free day, you might want to review the excellent research done by ordinary people right here at the DU just after the attacks. I will always be impressed by the stubbornness of a lot of great DU'ers back at that time who were not buying the lie. I am proud to have been here then.

Welcome to the DU, Sticky.

9. You Are Welcome, 0007!
I forced myself to go back again and revisit the time-line. This one is a brief one and the author of the page did a good job, didn't he?

10. The possibility put forth near the end of the page is simply
too chilling outrageous to contemplate. Is it possible?

Condi's Credibility Gap

By David J. Sirota and Christy Harvey and Judd Legum, The Progress Report
March 29, 2004

Pre-9/11 Intelligence

CLAIM: "I don't think anybody could have predicted that they would try to use an airplane as a missile, a hijacked airplane as a missile." National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, 5/16/02

FACT: On August 6, 2001, the President personally "received a one-and-a-half page briefing advising him that Osama bin Laden was capable of a major strike against the US, and that the plot could include the hijacking of an American airplane." In July 2001, the Administration was also told that terrorists had explored using airplanes as missiles.


CLAIM: In May 2002, Rice held a press conference to defend the Administration from new revelations that the President had been explicitly warned about an al Qaeda threat to airlines in August 2001. She "suggested that Bush had requested the briefing because of his keen concern about elevated terrorist threat levels that summer."


FACT: According to the CIA, the briefing "was not requested by President Bush." As commissioner Richard Ben-Veniste disclosed, "the CIA informed the panel that the author of the briefing does not recall such a request from Bush and that the idea to compile the briefing came from within the CIA."

17. a mountain of evidence
not a shred of proof. Conjecture at best. This is the type of conspiracy theory that the x-files were based upon.

18. No evidence
What I mean to say is this. In this time line the theroy is put forward that Preisend Bush was not evacuated from the School because HE President Bush knew prior to the attack how it would unfold.

Hmmmm, lets look back.

The time line states that the SECRET SERVICE has authority over the safety of the President. So, in order for this theroy to be true, the SECRET SERVICE would have had to be in on the whole affair. So, they would have had to sign off in advance to allow the murder of 3000 people in New York, Washington D.C. and who knows where else. Then even more incredibly they would all have had to agreed to shut up. Not a word leaked to anyone.

NO WAY!

Second. It was a confusing morning. If, as your timeline puts forward, the brass, FAA, Secret Service, etc knew we were under multiple attacks by commercial jet, why didnt we evacuate the Pentagon and Congress sooner? Where in you timeline is the evacuation of Congress? The Pentagon was not evacuated because no ONE person really understood everything quick enough to react. The White House and the Congress were not evacuated until AFTER the Pentagon was hit.

Someone put a lot of work into providing a great resource. I just find it hard to believe that ANYONE would believe President Bush knew of the attacks in ADVANCE!
