Matthews v. Fleisher

Former Bush administration press secretary/pathological liar Ari Fleischer was on MSNBC's 'Hardball' yesterday to defend Bush's legacy, and well, it got pretty ugly with host Chris Matthews. They touched on President Obama's first 50 days in office, the Bush recession and most intriguingly the Bush record on keeping America safe. Fleischer was quick to slobber all over Bush's cock for the lack of a major terrorist attack in this country since the 9/11 attacks, yet was shocked, SHOCKED I SAY, when Matthews dared point out the fact that Bush pretty much blew off the Presidential Daily Briefing titled "Bin Laden determined to strike in U.S." he received 8/6/01, just about a month before Bin Laden did strike the U.S. Well, if Bush's stooges are gonna take credit for the lack of an attack since then aren't they also deserving of the blame FOR that apocalyptic day? I mean, the chatter from overseas had been off the charts that summer and that very PDB detailed such intel as:

FBI information since that time indicates patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent with preparations for hijackings or other types of attacks, including recent surveillance of federal buildings in New York.


Bin Laden implied in U.S. television interviews in 1997 and 1998 that his followers would follow the example of World Trade Center bomber Ramzi Yousef and "bring the fighting to America."


Al Qaeda members -- including some who are U.S. citizens -- have resided in or traveled to the U.S. for years, and the group apparently maintains a support structure that could aid attacks.

So, it's pretty clear that former NSA Adviser/Sec. of State Condi Rice lied when she testified "I don't remember the al Qaeda cells as being something that we were told we needed to do something about" to the 9/11 commission in 2004. The administration knew full well of the threat and either didn't take it seriously, or worse, just ignored it altogether.

Either way, Ari Fleischer is full of shit.  He is the "shameful" one for lying to cover his failed administration's ass over the biggest intelligence failure since Pearl Harbor. Matthews is right, our country is far better off w/o these douchebags in office. At least now we have a far more competent administration to deal with not only the Al Qaeda terror threat but also the economic 9/11 we are now suffering through, also Bush's fault!
