Top Story of the Day:
Memo warned of attack inside U.S. Newsday -
A month before Sept. 11, 2001, President George W. Bush received an intelligence memo describing Osama bin Laden's interest in attacking the United States, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice said yesterday.

..."Please don't filibuster me," Kerrey implored Rice, to no avail, noting that he had only 10 minutes for questioning.

...Henry Hughes of Smithtown, whose son Kris was killed in the World Trade Center, said after the hearing that Rice "didn't answer a lot of the questions," such as her reply, "I really don't remember" when asked if she had told Bush before Aug. 6, 2001, that al-Qaida operatives were in the United States.
BEN-VENISTE. Isn't it a fact, Dr. Rice, that the Aug. 6 P.D.B. warned against possible attacks in this country? And I ask you whether you recall the title of that P.D.B.
RICE. I believe the title was Bin Laden Determined To Attack Inside the United States. Now, the P.D.B. -
BEN-VENISTE. Thank you.
RICE. No, Mr. Ben-Veniste -
BEN-VENISTE. I will get into the -
RICE. I would like to finish my point here.
BEN-VENISTE. I didn't know there was a point.
RICE. Given that - you asked me whether or not it warned of attacks.
BEN-VENISTE. I asked you what the title was. RICE. You said did it not warn of attacks. It did not warn of attacks inside the United States. It was historical information based on old reporting. There was no new threat information. And it did not, in fact, warn of any coming attacks inside the United States.

Notice The Rhetorical Strategy Here 10.Apr.2004 02:46


especially in the Ben-Veniste questioning:

Condi going on the vociferous straw-man attack, about something that Ben-Veniste never said, or even asked.

same pre-emptive, attack-dog, bludgeon-down-the-opposition style used by David Horowitz, Richard Perle, Scott McClellan / Ari Fleischer, Rummy, Rove, all the rest of these reichwingnut shills when their integrity is exposed merely by implication -

they get "pre-emptively defensive" and agressively try to "stomp out" any allusion or reference of guilt.

Condi's biggest blunder in her outburst (revealing her composure and stress level at that point):

"You said did it not warn of attacks."

Ben-Veniste said or asked no such thing. He simply asked Rice to confirm the title of the P.D.B. memo.
