57% Believe Bush "Personally Aware" of Pre 9/11 Intel Reports
"Fifty-seven percent of respondents said Mr. Bush was personally aware of pre-9/11 intelligence reports that warned of possible domestic terrorist attacks using airplanes. When the same question was asked in May 2002, 41 percent said they believed Mr. Bush was aware."

Part of the NYT/CBS Poll that I thought was the most surprising thing, I guess I've just been thinking that no matter what, people were never going to believe that Bush knew!

HE KNEW! he did nothing

1. Not only did HE know...
Ashcroft, Rumsfeld, and Rice (and certainly Cheney) knew too.

Senator Leahy said: they "allowed 911 to Happen".

you know they published a plan in which they wrote they would need a new Pearl Harbor to get themselves and their inner-circle of CEOs awfully richer at the expense of the taxpayers? If yes, do you know the fact that the following members of the Bush administration are members of the PNAC: Cheney, Rumsfeld, Libby, et all?"

Definitely 3 questions we would like to see the answers to in a poll. When? (Such a poll is long overdue...) :mad:

4. Not true! They did something.
They got themselves out of harm's way! George to Crawford for a month, Dick to Wyoming for a month, Ashcroft flying on private jets instead of commercial flights. Don't say they did nothing. They worked very hard, at protecting THEMSELVES. Obviously.

9. LOL, Only Not Funny
Those bastards are finally being seen by the sleeping masses more and more.

Most of us have been LIHOP or MIHOP for a long time.

To think that 57% is coming around is about 25% more than I would have guessed just a year ago!

They did do something, they let it happen, or worse, they made it happen.

But they knew something would happen and got themselves out of harms way like you said Stephanie!

5. The country deserves a REAL independent investigation
I'm in the MIHOP camp now. It took a lot of tears and anguish to accept it -- but now, the more I see and read about it, the more convinced I am...

6. The bottom line concerning 9/11.
They said they wanted it. They said they needed it. And then they all twiddled their thumbs as it was happening. After the fact, they told seven different stories about why they did absolutely nothing to respond that day. What more does anyone need to know about it?

8. What more? The coverup. You forgot the coverup.
This bunch of keystone cops bungled the op and only a
craven media prevented it from being found out within
a month.

7. Of course he fucking knew! The August 6th PDF was a direct response to
Bush asking about the terrorist threat.
