Add to that the deliberate attempt to delay many of President Bush's appointments in key national security positions:
For months, Sen. Levin personally had held up the confirmation hearings of Bush's appointees who were to design the U.S. antiterrorism strategy - Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas J. Feith, Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Programs J.D. Crouch and Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs Peter W. Rodman - refusing for apparently partisan purposes to allow them to take office until late July 2001. While Levin was holding up their appointments, the incoming Pentagon policy team had no legal or political authority to do their vital jobs - a fact that helps explain why it took eight months for the Bush administration to draw up a strategic operational plan to destroy al-Qaeda.
I know that Kerry left the Intel Committee in mid-2001. Any idea if Levin was also on that committee?
I hate to be a conspiracy theorist, but one has to wonder if they had a plan to discredit the Bush Administration. The Intelligence Committee was closed down by Pat Roberts because of Dem Strategies to use their Intel Knowledge AGAINST the President.
Would they hate America so much that they'd PLAN or ALLOW Al Qaeda to get through the breeches that they already knew existed? Would they keep new people out of their positions so things couldn't get fixed?
It explains Kerry ignoring SPECIFIC LETTERS written to him about Boston Logan Airport being the site where the hijackings would occur....Click here for Kerry Culpability for Logan Airpost, Boston
