    Those warning were not pretty "vauge".
    Pretty much stated they are already here. They are going to attack in NYC and DC. Expects upcoming attacks in the coming days.

    what kind of attack?

    bomb? plane? anthrax? chemical weapon?

    what target specifically?

    none of those questions were answered. NYC is a damn big city.

    Yeah, as much as I despise Bush, I can in no way fault him 9-11. As far as teh information being actionable, yes, the warnings were vague. Also, most warnings, even those considered highly credible, end up never amounting to anything. But I realize it is tempting to play the 20-20 hindsight game. I will sure as hell blame Bush for his response to 9-11, but I won't put the blame for the attack on him.

    Well usually when you have intelligence that says what cities the attacks are going to happen at i think you would not ignore those warning and take action. Im not in anyway blaming Bush for 9/11 im simply stating the warnings were there and he did not act and simply ignored them.

    You, sir, are correct. They didn't have the date.
    The WTC, Pentigon &WH, were given as a possible target.
    Hijacking a plane & useing it as a guided missal was mentioned as a possibe plan of attack.

    Yet, dozens of threats against targets within the US, including some that specifically mention targets in New York City and Washington DC (even including the World Trade Center and the Pentagon) were also received over the years by our government.

    • August 6, 2001 – President Bush receives memo titled “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in US.” The memo reads in part: “bin Laden wanted to hijack US aircraft to gain the release” of Oman Abdul Rahman and others” and tells of “suspicious activity in the US consistent with preparations for hijackings or other types of attacks, including recent surveillance of federal buildings in New York.”

    • August 21, 2001 – Jordanian inmate Walik Arkeh warns the FBI of an impending terrorist attack. He had befriended three men in a British jail in 2000-2001, each of whom had connections to UBL and al Qaeda and were indicted co-conspirators for the August 1998 US embassy bombings. His warning included “something big is going to happen in New York City” and that the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center is “unfinished business.” He also mentioned targets in Washington, DC but he did not know the date or method of the attacks. Arkeh is later deported to Jordan.

    I really doubt anything linked to Bin Laden was a "vague" threat. It's not like the guy was a white nationalist or some silly US terrorist blowing up a few abortion clinics in the middle of the night.

We don't mobilize our entire intelligence community over every single solitary terrorist threat out there because it's inefficient and largely futile to do so.

    Right. Instead you give the Medal of Freedom to the man who bungled all the warnings before 911 and THEN bungled the existance of WMD's in Iraq!
    Can you even begin to see why I despise that man? WTF did Tenet do right? Or was it that he did it all for Bush the reason for the medal?
