a democrat would be impeached by now

the reviews of bob woodward’s latest book are out, and i’m comforted…

The CIA’S top counterterrorism officials felt they could have killed Osama Bin Laden in the months before 9/11, but got the “brushoff” when they went to the Bush White House seeking the money and authorization.

CIA Director George Tenet and his counterterrorism head Cofer Black sought an urgent meeting with then-national security adviser Condoleezza Rice on July 10, 2001, writes Bob Woodward in his new book “State of Denial.”

tenent and black then ‘sounded the loudest warning’ of an attack – though, despite their efforts, felt brushed off by rice.

whats worse?  the 9-11 commission was never even told of the meeting.  as commissioner gorelick observed:  “We didn’t know about the meeting itself. I can assure you it would have been in our report if we had known to ask about it.”  rice, tenet, and black all testified before the commission – under oath – yet none appear to have remembered the meeting then.
