    CIA Documents Show 9/11 Bin Laden Warnings Ignored

    "The 100-plus CIA documents newly declassified and published Tuesday have exclusive information about drones, the Bush administration's downplaying of the terrorist threat and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, among other matters. But perhaps the material most at odds with anything we know is that the CIA thinks it did a terrific job with pre- and post-9/11 information-sharing, counterterrorism practicing and intelligence coordination. Publicly the agency's post-9/11 narrative is that it has completely reformed. The documents reveal that that just isn't so...".* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down, including the Bush response to warnings about Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden.

    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.

    Terrorism is just a tool for justifying brash foreign policy.

    nobody was warned about Al Qaeda flying 4 planes into the WTC, Pentagon, and White House on 9-11-01.

    there were only vague threats of an impending attack

    This is only corroborating old news. Bush security adviser Clark revealed the curious fact that Bush had no interest in Bin Laden and went as far as to ban the mention of his name before 911.
    The real story is that Republicans are not likely to stop terror attacks when they benefit their agenda like 911 did. Bush wanted to get Saddam and 911 gave him the freedom to do it.
    Romney wants things too, will he let Alqueada help him too? I worry about that all the time.

    "But I don't remember the al Qaeda cells as
    being something that we were told we needed to do something
    about."

    No one told the President and his people what they should do.

    They basically said no one lead them.

    Some leader.

    "Warnings" were not denied as existing, but rather the interpretation regarding the warnings being "ignored" (or also, not shared with other organizations). If you recall some years back during and after the 9/11 Commission, we had much play in the media regarding the lack of communication between various organizations and the resulting orientation of the administration toward those threats.

    The rules say these things do not belong here:

    • Articles that meet the above standards, but contain overly partisan commentary and/or are otherwise clearly biased.
    • Editorials and Op/Ed pieces.

    If Soros's disinformation/agitprop puppets are otherwise, they need to just delete these bull**** rules.

    No one suggested that "Bush was warned" was a conspiracy theory. The conspiracy theory is the idiotic notion that he purposefully allowed for it to happen, specifically for some ulterior political motivations. It also is worthless to know "Bush was warned" without context of how common similar level of threats had been given to Bush, Clinton, and Presidents in the past. 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.

    I'd like to see ANY evidence that Bush was warned about a terrorist attack in NYC on 9-11-01 using passenger planes.
