Now we know why the Bush administration has been fighting tooth and nail to prevent an independent look at intelligence failures leading up to 9/11. Time Magazine has a story about an extensive Clinton plan to attack al-Queda, developed after the Cole bombing. Leaving office, they handed the plan to the incoming Bush administration, who did nothing with it because they didn’t see al-Queda as an important enough problem.
The plan is an outline of the very same extensive anti-terrorist activities that the Bush administration is getting so much credit for.
After blaming the Clinton administration for 9/11, claiming Clinton did nothing and taking full political credit for “their” plan to attack al-Queda, we now see why they fought so hard to keep the truth from coming out.
