Update: More Trouble for Condi, Bush, GOP

By Comments

One of the political Web sites I check regularly is politicalwire.com. It is now carrying this story that substantiates charges made in Bob Woodward’s new book, State of Denial, that CIA director George Tenet briefed Condi Rice at the White House, two months before 9/11, that al Qaeda was planning to strike the United States. Earlier, the Washington Post reported that Rice “vehemently denied that she ever received a special CIA warning about an imminent terrorist attack on the United States, angrily rebutting new allegations about her culpability in U.S. policy failures before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks by al Qaeda.”

politicalwire’s update: “Whoops, not so fast. The New York Times reports, ‘[A] review of White House records has determined that George J. Tenet, then the director of central intelligence, did brief Condoleezza Rice and other top officials on July 10, 2001, about the looming threat from Al Qaeda.’ The records were produced today by a State Department spokesman.”
