Oh please be more succinct in what you are 'just sayin'. Those that accused President Bush did NOTHING to stop Bin Ladin for 8 long years. Blood is on their hands.

I have read this “claim” before. So tell me, what should Bush have done grounded every plane, private and commercial, indefinitely?

Hindsight is 20/20. Just sayin’

This thread is about a UN ambassaor covering the tracks of the higher ups. She did what she was told to do.

The whole world now knows this administration is a bunch of liars. This administration advertised a '14 minute video' that must have made Hollywood producers green with envy, just to hide their dereliction of duty. This Arab uprising called 'Arab Spring', was encourage by Obama and funded in part by US, and I still have no clue WHY!!! Interesting is it not that here we are entering into the American FALL!!!!

There were several indications of what was going on. Tony Schaffer and Able Danger had some bits of the puzzle, Curt Weldon had some, CIA had some, and we had some. Bringing attention to them - before 9.11.2001 - universally brought swift and severe reprisals.

The fish first rots at the head.

They all knew and should be fired. From The Won right on down the line. They all stood up and lied.

Rice will be the fatted calf. But I’m no more disgusted with her than I am any of the other liars.

I think she shouldn’t resign either, the time for that is past.

She should have resigned the day she was asked/told/instructed to go out and lie to EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN and she agreed to do so.

Now she can just go down with the rest of the RATS on the sinking ship of the Obama administration.

But Ms. Rice has shown herself to be a despicable liar, for hire or otherwise.

I, myself, would not ask directions of the woman from one intersection to the next.

We hold you in contempt, as you hold us.

“bits of the puzzle”

Unless a specific was brought what could be done? Hindsight is 20/20.

And in truth, who in their wildest dreams would believe that 9/11 would happen? Fly commercial planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon...one downed by passengers in Pa?

Truly, if someone had said that to me on September 10, 2001 or before I would have doubted what they were telling me.

Don’t give me that pathetic hindsight whine.

The bits known were large and pointed out the actual perps.

The islamics also did a failed test run far earlier, in Europe. And the actual *plan* was known and had a name. Just that no one thought it worth mentioning.

I think any of them that said it was because of the video—need to be removed from whatever position they hold, that includes Obama.

On Sept 11 2012 (correct me if I am wrong) Egypt and Libya had been the only attacks. Egypt had ran something on TV about the video, so they attacked the embassy over that.

Libya had NOTHING before the attacks, no protesters.

All the other attacks on an embassy came after the announcement on CNN etc that the evil offensive video caused the other attacks. Well, and the tweets that were put out.

It looks to me that our saying it was the video, spread the riots. Just as if we pored gas on it.

Perhaps you could tell me how it could have been stopped.

You seem have a lot of information.

Please be specific...how could it have been stopped? I’m interested.

The dia had plenty. aq telegraphed their punches in pretty clear terms. The hijackers were being watched when they ‘suddenly’ went off the radar. What they DID NOT DO was coordinate the intel.
Furthermore, the first thing dot gov did was round up the saudi royals and the bin laden family and give them safe passage out of the country. THIS was covered up all the way from then until now. Those of us who knew were not believed. Now it’s coming out.
In fairness to GWB, this was in motion long before he assumed office. Don’t forget he was hindered from actually starting his presidency by some weeks due to clinton obstacles and had not had time to put his cabinet officers in place. Even after he did, the agencies were still full of clintonistas as they are to this day. Gorelick’s wall was very effective.
Still, it was GWB who assured us that islam was a religion of peace, wasn’t it?

What specific information was know before 9/11.

Please be specific. Not putting the peices together in retrospect.

Islamic terrorists bombed a 30’ crater under the World Trade Center in 1993 in their first attempt to bring it down. Clinton proceeded to do absolutely nothing for 8 years to address the threat of Islamic terrorism and, in fact, demonstrated not only the weakness that led to the brazen and devastating 9-11 attacks, but, for the purpose of covering up his Chinese campaign cash corruption, had his flunky Jamie Gorelick erect the “wall” between the CIA and the FBI that made the terrorists’ mission that much easier.

Bush faced the terrorists head on, and we have killed a hell of a lot of them.

Just sayin

“What specific information was know before 9/11.”

The names and whereabouts of most of the hijackers until about ten days before the op. Had followed them crosscountry from mosque to mosque. CA to VA and Michigan, through NC, SC, and South Florida. Knew it was very close because chatter was off the boards. Knew HOW and what the prime targets probably were. NO warnings were issued when the hijackers ‘disappeared’.

And she’s incomletent as well. You could see that deer in the headlight look as she repeated her well rehearsed lines but, with her chin down and looking up through her eyes.

Your intell maybe farther better than mine.

If I recall, at that time the CIA and FBI were not allowed to share info due to some Clinton admin edict. I assume that is the Gorelick wall you are referring to. I couldn’t remember the name.

As I recall, emotions were very high after 9/11. A lot of non-muslim(Indian for example) were being targeted. I have always been of the opinion that he said the “religion of peace” thing was to tamp down violence in the country after a devastating attack when a lot of people were looking for vengence. I could sure be wrong.

Much like he said “go out and shop”. IMHO, that was to keep our economy from falling into the dump. And, miraculosly, it didn’t (not right then, anyway.)

GWB did a lot wrong..but I shudder to think that we could have had Gore or Kerry at the helm. Or God forbid, Obarry at the helm in a similar crisis.

But once again..we have the luxury of looking back and seeing the lead up to the event.

In this country (and I am glad) you really can’t arrest someone because they MIGHT do something. Some of the hijackers were illegal...but we know how that goes.

As soon as my crystal ball clears up..I’ll let you know what might happen tomorrow.

I hate that is was foggy during the Libya event.

BS. Many knew exactly what was going on. And Democrats were in the planning loop and profited handsomely.

That’s right. The Democrats actively helped kill 3000 Americans.

There is something very cheeky about a president who would ask his lieutenant to lie, while he was also lying—and then fire her for doing so.

The CIA was running a full blown intelligence operation out of that embassy it is being reported, and still little or no protection for them.

Libya officials warned Hillary & Obama, the embassy warned Hillary & Obama and they didn't take it seriously.

The facts were known when Obama woke up the next morning.

...No Protest! ...Terrorist Attack! ...On 9-11 Anniversary

After 24 hours, This administration knew the facts and deliberately tried to cover up and confuse the facts in Lybia with the protest in Egypt.
