GOP Senators embraced Condi Rice as Sec. of State after she ignored 9/11 warnings, but pummel Susan Rice
Your Daily Dose of BuzzFlash, via my pal Mark Karlin:
Condi Rice, as National Security Advisor, was generally the funnel through which such intelligence alarms went through before getting to Bush. She also had separate meetings with George Tenet, head of the CIA, who reportedly told her of the agency’s concern about Al Qaeda launching attacks in the US, including hijackings. In fact, at one point during a public inquiry about the 9/11 attacks, Rice was forced to read the headline of the infamous August 6th CIA memo: “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.”
So when Reuters headlines its article about Susan Rice’s meeting with GOP senators this morning, “Rice meeting with senators fails to dampen criticism,” you know that the Republican double standard of hypocrisy is in full swing.
