Rice Full Of Beans

A newly released memo from former White House counter-terrorism expert Richard Clarke, dated January 25, 2001, five days after Bush took office, warned Condaleezza Rice that Al-Qaeda was an "active, major force" that needed immediate attention. The memo had been declaissified last year, but was made public just days ago. This memo comes on the heels of the release of other documents, quietly suppresed or buried by the White House, which signalled this administration's knowledge of the possiblity of hijacked planes used for suicide attacks.

This deluge of new material is further evidence that Bush and his administration lied in their testimony before the 9/11 commission and, even though the Bushies tried to discredit him, Richard Clarke was telling the truth. The Peach would like the SCLM to now do their job and press Bush for the truth about these documents and his knowing they existed.

Yeah, its pretty damning to say the least. Small wonder it wasn't allowed to be released until after the election.
The meeting finally took place Sept. 4....
