Confirmed: Condi was briefed by Tenet on looming attacks just before 9/11!

Frank J. Ranelli

The Ny Times is reporting that Condi Rice is lying, specifically that she in fact was briefed by George Tenet about the looming threat of a strike by Al Qaeda in 2001!

An excerpt:

A review of White House records has determined that George J. Tenet, then the director of central intelligence, did brief Condoleezza Rice and other top officials on July 10, 2001, about the looming threat from Al Qaeda, a State Department spokesman said Monday.

Condi's position:

Ms. Rice, the national security adviser at the time, said it was “incomprehensible” she ignored dire terrorist threats two months before the Sept. 11 attacks.

The Facts:

Now, after several days, both current and former Bush administration officials have confirmed parts of Mr. Woodward’s account.

Officials now agree that on July 10, 2001, Mr. Tenet and his counterterrorism deputy, J. Cofer Black, were so alarmed about an impending Al Qaeda attack that they demanded an emergency meeting at the White House with Ms. Rice and her National Security Council staff.
