officials at the CIA's Counterterrorism Center were exasperated at the White House's suggestion that they were inflating threats. Neoconservatives in the Bush administration reportedly told them that Bin Laden had successfully led them away from the real

I once saw a graphic. It said, how do you know when a republican is lying? When they talk. And the other one was a great one. It showed and elephant taking a big dump, with the zoo keeper holding a big garbage bag to collect it. The caption says. WHEN REPUBLICANS DO THIS, IT'S NOT CALLED SH*T. I guess that says it all,

And as more comos out (the truth) we will find how bad this gang of criminals really were. Too bad that will never go to jail for their crimes.

noted...not sure they still could have stopped it, but surely makes me think more and more that politics was more important than safety....i.e. choosing to follow neo-cons at Pentagon rather than CIA.....

It is absurd that Rice said no one could have imagined ramming a plane into a building. Would the CIA not have already thought of that scenario along with hundreds of others? It's not the first time someone used a plane to crash into a target.

Airplanes have long made a good bomb, there is nothing starling nor surprising about what happened, though I'm not sure that we will ever learn the facts or the truth, not in my life time.

The result from the 9/11 is what we are left with today, laws and internal security systems to fight the war on terror, has left us all without our basic constitutional rights.

Yes very convenient for an intelligence community feeling the heat of the end of the cold war on their pocket books... it is a miracle recovery and the Bushes have been cia upon there inception and militry intelligence in WWII too. Funny too that a Bush named Marvin went on the board of the WTC security firm soon after the '93 WTC bombing. Collateral damge means nothing to hese people ever...in the entire history of the western upper crasses. Including Pearl Harbor and USS Maine and the Civil War to speed up our spread westward. and the Revolutionary War to goose the land rush over the coastal mountain ranges.(so Jefferson gave away his massive land rights but..) now we have new intelligence agencies, contractors, and services sprouting like alfalfa all across our land.

Bush and Cheney, and Rumsfeld ought to be charged with malfeasance . if not outright treason! Jeb Bush ought to be charged with tampering with elections.
I know it won't happen.
And then there is the story, in a French published book, that Bush went to the then President of France, and told him that Bush wanted to go to war against Iraq, because he "knew" that Gog and Magog, of the bible, were afoot in Iraq.
Yes, no shit!
That's the kind of thing that happens, when you have fundamentalist crazies running a country.

WITH ALL OF THE INTELLEGENCE AGENCIES, CIA ,FBI, AND ALL OF THE MILITARY INTELLIGENCE, WHY COULD FORIENERS COME INTO OUR COUNTRY, LEARN TO FLY OOUR COOMMERCIAL PLANES, GO INTO THE PIOLETS QUATERS AND TAKE OVE THREE PLANES WITHOUT ANYONE BEING SUSPISSIOUS..RIGHT! JUST LIKE THE INTELLEGENCE OFFICER ON THE SHIP THAT GOT BOMBED, TRIED TO WARN THE CAPTAIN, HE PAID NO ATTENTION EITHER.
