A NY Times reporter displays his absurd gullibility while reporting a series of suspicious warnings, some of which may have been unknown before (from 9/11/12).

The Deafness Before the Storm

One has to be gullible to the point of obtuseness to work in corporate media in Amerika.

“Could the 9/11 attack have been stopped, had the Bush team reacted with urgency to the warnings contained in all of those daily briefs? We can’t ever know.”

Some of us know quite well.  We won’t ever cash checks from NY Times Company.  The August 6 PDB was ordered up to be the official response to the more dire warnings.  As Condi Rice claimed in her hearings, “it was historical.”   Of course it was.  That’s what Bush ordered on July 24:

“On July 24, Mr. Bush was notified that the attack was still being readied, but that it had been postponed, perhaps by a few months. But the president did not feel the briefings on potential attacks were sufficient, one intelligence official told me, and instead asked for a broader analysis on Al Qaeda, its aspirations and its history. In response, the C.I.A. set to work on the Aug. 6 brief.”

We heard a lot of crap about the August 6 “historical” analysis, but what about what they knew by May 1, 2001?

“By May 1, the Central Intelligence Agency told the White House of a report that “a group presently in the United States” was planning a terrorist operation.”

A group presently in the United States?
