Significantly More 9/11 Negligence Than Has Been Exposed.
It is that time of year again to remember just how inept our leader was leading up to and during the 9/11 crisis. Thanks for keeping us safe W.gwdance



The direct warnings to Mr. Bush about the possibility of a Qaeda attack began in the spring of 2001. By May 1, the Central Intelligence Agency told the White House of a report that “a group presently in the United States” was planning a terrorist operation. Weeks later, on June 22, the daily brief reported that Qaeda strikes could be “imminent,” although intelligence suggested the time frame was flexible.

911 Was an Inside Job -- 11 years ago today to almost the minute for Plane 2

Larry Silverstein, may you rot in your own self-made hell.

Dick Cheney, Lawrence Eisenberg, Christy Todd Whitman, George Bush, Marvin Bush, George Herbert Walker Bush, Peter G. Peterson -- YOU ARE THE PERPS OF 911 and your minions.

You murdered 3000 people.

We know it.

God knows it.

"Berger ambled down the stairwell and entered the Sit[uation] Room. He picked up the phone at one of the busy controller consoles and called the president. Amazingly, President Clinton was not available. Berger tried again and again. Bin Laden was within striking distance. The window of opportunity was closing fast. The plan of attack was set and the Tomahawk [missile] crews were ready. For about an hour Berger couldn't get the commander in chief on the line. Though the president was always accompanied by military aides and the Secret Service, he was somehow unavailable. Berger stalked the Sit Room, anxious and impatient."

Patterson continues:

"Finally, the president accepted Berger's call. There was discussion, there were pauses – and no decision. The president wanted to talk with his secretaries of Defense and State. He wanted to study the issue further. Berger was forced to wait. The clock was ticking. The president eventually called back. He was still indecisive. He wanted more discussion. Berger alternated between phone calls and watching the clock.

"The dithering continued until it was too late–and bin Laden lived to fight another day. And to plot the Sept. 11 attacks."

That was not an isolated incident. On Sept. 13, 1996, while on the golf course with his lawyer friend Vernon Jordan, President Clinton had refused to take repeated urgent phone calls from Berger, who needed the president's approval for air strikes on Iraq. Patterson wrote: "Pilots were in the cockpits, waiting to launch, targets were identified, everything was in place, all [Berger] needed was the go-ahead."

He never got it. The protective cover of night lifted, and the mission was aborted.

On the very morning these events took place, the USAF/DOD was in the middle of an exercise SIMULATING HIJACKED AIRCRAFT BEING FLOWN INTO BUILDINGS.

The real world shit happened, and people looking at radar screens thought it WAS AN EXERCISE.

They were not. They were simulating an attack from Russia.

I don't believe I've heard that one before.

Either way, they were simulating aircraft being hijacked.

Just like with the London 7/7 attacks- THEY were simulating the exact same thing that really happened, at the exact same time it happened.

I heard an interview were they asked Clinton about this, he said the CIA could not guarantee Bin Laden would still be there in the six hours it would take the cruise missiles to reach the target. Since this wasn't a Terrorist training ground they could not say what the collateral damage would be. He said this type of incident led to the later policy to arm Drones so they could take immediate action.
