> The fact is before the event started, Bush was told that a plane crashed into the World Trade Center. Bush, not 6 weeks earlier had been given a briefing called "Bin Laden Determined to Attack in the United States".

To me, this whole argument about the briefing is just silly. How many briefings a year do you supposes an American president gets in which he is warned about some group, somewhere, planning something? I'm willing to bet it's a pretty darn big number. If all our gevernment did was run around trying to prepare a response for every wisper of intelligence we recieved about a possible attack, that would be the only thing it did.
