6 Years ago Today.....Bin Laden determined to strike in US

My good friend Ripley at Zen Cabin reminds us that 8/06/2001 is the day that Bush got his PDB (Presidential Daily Briefing) titled bin Laden Determined to Strike Inside US.

I created the video below back in 2004 (Real Video Link 93 seconds), and I created it BEFORE Dr. Condoleezza Rice, National Security Advisor testified about this in congress where she dismissed it as 'historical'. I got all the info from a great site called Cooperative Research. Here is a link to the Aug 06, 2001 section of the time line.

For the science fiction fans who will disagree with Ms. Rice's assertion (which I believe she finally retracted years later) "I don't think that any one could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center,... ''even in retrospect' that there was 'nothing' to suggest that." -Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice 5/16/2002

On March 4, 2001 a short-lived Fox television program called The Lone Gunmen airs a pilot episode in which militants try to fly an airplane into the WTC. If only Ms. Rice was a science fiction fan!

(BTW, you can donate to the Center for Cooperative Research here, it will soon be called the “Center for Grassroots Oversight"]
