Bush’s First Al Qaida Memo Unclassified

Props to The Memory Hole blog for uncovering this:

January 2001 Al Qaida memo excerpt

That’s an excerpt from the January 2001 memo Richard Clarke sent to Condaleeza Rice about Al Qaida. Unfortunately he wasn’t clear enough in the first paragraph of the memo when he says the meeting was something they “urgently need,” so the meeting was postponed until September 4th, 2001. Woops!

The three-page document was just unclassified, can you imagine the damage it would have done to Bush if it had come out before the election?

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.
