Bush Received More Warnings About 9/11 Than We Realized

Truth be told... So sad that prior to 911, even though there were so many warnings and that so many could potentially die, the thought of a profitable war was so much more valued and the lives lost are just collateral damage !!! Sounds familiar as with the Iraq war.

On this day in history,12 years ago, President George W Bush ignored intelligence warnings that Al Qaeda was a credible threat to attack inside the US. Instead of acting on the intelligence, he continued to "clear brush" on his ranch for another 30 days. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/04/25/1204757/-Never-forget-The-Bush-Administration-failed-to-prevent-the-September-11-terrorist-attacks# While Republicans today criticize the proactive closure of embassies.
