Dr. BOB

I have read the PDB document. It is not an immediate threat document. It gives a history of Ben's threats to do dammage to the USA at sometimebut not a specific date. Clinton's people knew all about what was in the document and had the CIA and FBI working on the problem as one of their top priorities. There was nothing that Bush could have done in the 6-8 months he had been in office. Bush's people recognized some of the major problems to prevent such an attack, such as eliminating political correctness issues, changing the law so CIA and FBI agents could communicate with each other, etc. If you took over a large corporation with millions of employees and spred out all over the world, would have it reorganized in 8 months?
