The same old questions:
Who do you trust?
Who do believe?
Former C.I.A. Director George Tenet said that he warned Condoleeza Rice of impending Al-Qaeda attacks.
He maintains that in the summer of 2001, he sought a meeting with National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice at which he presented a briefing. As he recalled to "60 Minutes," "Essentially, the briefing says, there are gonna be multiple spectacular attacks against the United States. We believe these attacks are imminent. Mass casualties are a likelihood." He told "60 Minutes" that his message to her was: "We need to consider immediate action inside Afghanistan now. We need to move to the offensive." Rice has denied that she received any such specific information or suggestions from Tenet.

If it's not denial then it's the Gonzo reply:
I DON'T RECALL.
But when Ms. Mushroom Cloud Lady Rice is under oath next month, maybe she will sing a different tune.
Apr. 25 - U.S. Democratic lawmakers voted to subpoena Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to testify about administration justifications for the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003.
On a party-line vote of 21-10, the House of Representatives' Oversight and Government Reform Committee directed Rice to appear before the panel next month.
Republicans accused Democrats of a "fishing expedition." But Democrats said they want Rice to explain what she knew about administration's warnings, later proven false, that Iraq had sought uranium from Niger for nuclear arms.

If all of this was not so tragic it would be funny.
But it is a tragi-comedy of epic proportions.
Ignore the warnings for the 9-11 attacks.
THEN BOMB IRAQ!
Another Historic Step On Impeachment
Sparked by an insurgency among delegates, the California Democratic Party has taken an historic step forward on the issue of impeachment. In a resolution affirmed by the full state party convention Sunday, the Democrats called on the U.S. Congress to use its subpoena power to investigate misdeeds of President Bush and Vice President Cheney – and to hold the Administration accountable “with appropriate remedies and punishment, including impeachment.” The delegate insurgency was coordinated by Progressive Democrats of America and its allies.
The resolution ends by calling for “vigorous investigation” and “appropriate remedies and punishment, including impeachment.”
