Read it for yourself:

August 6 PDB Page 1

August 6 PDB Page 2

More than 3,000 people WERE killed on 9/11.

Should Bush have resigned?
I did a quick read-through, and I didn't see anything damning. All I saw were possibilities. In fact, the PDB explicitly says that intelligence agencies had not been able to corroborate that an attack using airliners was imminent. What was Bush supposed to do exactly?

I'll hold my breath for your answer.

Didn't Obama's admin call the CIA - liars, and want to proscute them, so why would the CIA want to look like fools, when the admin needs an agency to blame.

If you make it policy to screen a disproportionately low number of women, terrorists will recruit women. Never ever base your plan on the enemy being stupid.

YEP.......

Dog them for doing their job and then turn around and blame them for not doing it better for fear of future prosecution....

Kudos for Obama for owning up to the problem!

Now:

a) Doesn't that make the Obama apologists who were saying it wasn't his problem look pretty stupid or foolish?

b) The level of Obama's sincerity is directly proportional to who he fires as a result. I expect no less than that moron Napolitano's resignation immediately. Otherwise, his credibility will be reduced to zero (if in many eyes, it isn't there already).

I also wonder if he would have said the same thing had the guy managed to blow up his britches.

So using that logic, Bush should have resigned right? When 9-11 happened? Oh and that was almost. That DID happen.

I probably won't hear back from you but was very happy to OWN you
