Rice Was Briefed--RELEASE the SLIDES!`

On July 10th 2001, the CIA Director Tenet gave Condi Rice a full briefing on the IMMEDIATE threat of an attack on America.
When Condi heard the briefing, made by Director Tenet, Counter-Terrorism Cheif, Cofer Black, and a third yet-unnamed CIA official, she asked them to give the same briefing to Rumsfeld and Ashcroft, then she promptly DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Despite the fact that this was rated as a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10 of danger, Rice just played along with her Corporate oil and AIPAC buddies, rubbing their hands and waiting for their "new Pearl Harbor."

SHE DID NOTHING!

Ashcroft said that he "wished he had known about the threat," but IN FACT, Ashcroft WAS briefed! The same PPT presenation slides were shown to him on July 17th, 2001!

According to NUMEROUS news sources, John Ashcroft suddenly STOPPED FLYING ON COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT! This was reported on July 26th, 2001!

So Ashcroft claims he "wished he had known," and yet IMMEDIATELY AFTER HE DID KNOW, HE STOPPED FLYING! What a stinking liar!

I SAY RELEASE THE SLIDES!

LET THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES DECIDE WHETHER THE SLIDES TENET SHOWED RICE AND ASHCROFT WERE WORTHY OF IMMEDIATE SERIOUS ACTION TO STOP THE ATTACKS!

LET US DECIDE!

and let us light some torches and sharpen some pitchforks...
