There is nothing wrong with planning.
In this case it was prescient to start there.
They foresaw a hot spot and decided to plan.
Nobody did this with Afghanistan. Osama.
Nobody in any Intel agency.
We did have Gorellick forge a Wall between our intel services which made "connecting the dots" more than difficult.
So give credit where due.
Bush was ahead of the curve.
Before you get too excited, Bush would have had to convince Congress of his war plans. Would they have expended the Capital to do this? Perhaps. If so much later in their first term.
911 had Dems acting consistent with their rhetoric when The Clintons were running the show. The actually pressed for and got a second meaningless vote in support.
That the votes were purely political and their Clinton rhetoric pure political posturing... reveals a group of individuals willing to do anything to gain power.
A huge contrast to Bush.
Bush campaigned on a set of clear ideas twice.
