The Smoking Gun is there

posted by Rob at 8:36 AM

It looks to be a bad week for the Bush haters. The Smoking Gun now has online pages from the 9/11 commission report which states that back in 1998 the FAA was warned that al Qaeda operatives could "seek to hijack a commercial jet and slam it into a U.S. landmark":
When the report was originally released in January, the section about the FAA's early warning to U.S. aviation officials was redacted. However, a subsequent declassification review uncloaked various portions of the document, which was re-released yesterday by the National Archives.
This doesn't clear the Bush administration of being asleep at the wheel, but it supports the notion that al Qaeda's plans predated January 20, 2001 and no one then did anything about them.
