    there were only vague threats of an impending attack
    this, and it doesn't rise to anywhere near the level of LIHOP.

    interestingly, i vividly remember reading an article on CNN in August of '01 about a risk of terror attacks on planes. i haven't been able to find the article, however.

    One of them specifically stated that, actually.

    So would I, Thunder.

    The radical Left loves to invent and make up these stories about George Bush.

    However, here is something about the very foolish Democrats that they cannot deny!

    NBC News has obtained, exclusively, extraordinary secret video, shot by the U.S. government. It illustrates an enormous opportunity the Clinton administration had to kill or capture bin Laden. Critics call it a missed opportunity.

    In the fall of 2000, in Afghanistan, unmanned, unarmed spy planes called Predators flew over known al-Qaida training camps. The pictures that were transmitted live to CIA headquarters show al-Qaida terrorists firing at targets, conducting military drills and then scattering on cue through the desert.

    Also, that fall, the Predator captured even more extraordinary pictures — a tall figure in flowing white robes. Many intelligence analysts believed then and now it is bin Laden.

    Why does U.S. intelligence believe it was bin Laden? NBC showed the video to William Arkin, a former intelligence officer and now military analyst for NBC. “You see a tall man…. You see him surrounded by or at least protected by a group of guards.”

    Bin Laden is 6 foot 5. The man in the video clearly towers over those around him and seems to be treated with great deference.

    Another clue: The video was shot at Tarnak Farm, the walled compound where bin Laden is known to live. The layout of the buildings in the Predator video perfectly matches secret U.S. intelligence photos and diagrams of Tarnak Farm obtained by NBC.

    “It’s dynamite. It’s putting together all of the pieces, and that doesn’t happen every day.… I guess you could say we’ve done it once, and this is it,” Arkin added.

    The tape proves the Clinton administration was aggressively tracking al-Qaida a year before 9/11. But that also raises one enormous question: If the U.S. government had bin Laden and the camps in its sights in real time, why was no action taken against them?

    “We were not prepared to take the military action necessary,” said retired Gen. Wayne Downing, who ran counter-terror efforts for the current Bush administration and is now an NBC analyst.

    Analysts come up with all kinds of targets and scenarios; that's what they're paid for. And of course the available intelligence can point to any number of possibilities.

    Of course you blame Bush, I quote:

    "So maybe the saying that Bush was warned about the 9/11 attacks isnt a "conspiracy theory"after all.. And yet he ran on that he "protected us"? More like one of the biggest security failures ever done by our intelligence community and the executive.. History will prove that Bush is one of the worst presidents ever."
