Early Thursday morning, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice denied that she gave the "brush-off" to an "impending terrorist attack" warning by former C.I.A. director George J. Tenet and his counterterrorism coordinator in July of 2001, two months before the September 11 attacks, which was first reported in Washington Post investigative reporter's Bob Woodward's latest book State of Denial.

The former National Security Adviser, interviewed on Detroit's Paul Smith Show on WJRI Radio, said that the "assertion that would hear about a specific attack and not do anything" is "obviously just not true."

"On July 10, 2001, the book says, Mr. Tenet and his counterterrorism chief, J. Cofer Black, met with Ms. Rice at the White House to impress upon her the seriousness of the intelligence the agency was collecting about an impending attack," David E. Sanger reported for the New York Times in September. "But both men came away from the meeting feeling that Ms. Rice had not taken the warnings seriously." On the radio, Rice asked rhetorically, "Does anybody really believe that somebody would have walked into my office and said, oh, by the way, there's a chance of a major attack against the United States and I would have said, well, I'm really not interested in that information?"

"I mean, it's just ridiculous," said Rice. "Of course we knew that there were grave threats that were being -- that were in the intelligence during that period of time," Rice continued. "We were actively working with the FAA, working with other domestic agencies."

1. She's really good at being indignant, but not very good
at actually doing anything else.

2. Yes you would bitch because it was your administrations plan
to LET IT HAPPEN. bush needed a big bang so he could be proclaimed a war president. How the fuck is that working out bitch? If you are involved with PNAC (go figure?) I think you should be hanged by the neck until you are dead. You are part of the worst administration in this country's history bitch. And you will have to live with that shame until the day you die.

17. This is the bottom line.
Condi acted like it was not even a possibility that someone would use commercial jets and crash them into skyscrapers.

Yet she had been warned of this very thing in the 60 days prior to the attack. Who could have predicted?

YOU COULD HAVE PREDICTED, CONDI. YOU HAD THE INFORMATION AND DID NOTHING WITH IT. YOU COULD HAVE DONE *SOMETHING*.

I sure never heard about anything I needed to be on the lookout for. Where was this reported in the media? Why weren't restrictions put in place in the airports based on this?

9. Oh SHUT UP!!
You have no credibility, and the more you insist Woodward (Tenet) is lying, the worse it makes you look. No one believes you Condi. :eyes:

10. Damned straight.
Especially when you'd been given orders not to bother anybody about anything so inconsequential.

11.  "Of course we knew that there were grave threats that were being -- "
I wonder where that would have gone had she finished the sentence the way it first started to come out.

12. You blew it Condi
There was a worldwide watch between July and September. There was an August PDB that focused the terrorist chatter inside the US.

You went on freakin' VACATION!! Just like you went shoe shopping when folks were drowning in New Orleans.

You're a waste of space Condi and if you had any real insight or sense of accountability - you'd resign because you'd KNOW you were a waste of space. If you can't evaluate your own short-comings, you sure can't evaluate anything else.

18. Condi face the facts. You are in...way over your head
You were good at tutoring W. Teaching him geography and the names of foreign leaders is what you are good at. You should have stuck with that job. Heaven knows, trying to raise his basic knowledge
could keep you busy 24/7
