Miers Briefed Bush on Famous Bin Laden Memo

But Newspapers Handle the AP Photo Quite Differently


NEW YORK On its front page Tuesday, The New York Times published a photo of new U.S. Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers going over a briefing paper with President George W. Bush at his Crawford ranch “in August 2001,” the caption reads.

USA Today and the Boston Globe carried the photo labeled simply “2001,” but many other newspapers ran the picture in print or on the Web with a more precise date: Aug. 6, 2001.

Does that date sound familiar? Indeed, that was the date, a little over a month before 9/11, that President Bush was briefed on the now-famous “PDB” that declared that Osama Bin Laden was “determined” to attack the U.S. homeland, perhaps with hijacked planes. But does that mean that Miers had anything to do with that briefing?

As it turns out, yes, according to Tuesday's Los Angeles Times. An article by Richard A. Serrano and Scott Gold observes that early in the Bush presidency “Miers assumed such an insider role that in 2001 it was she who handed Bush the crucial 'presidential daily briefing' hinting at terrorist plots against America just a month before the Sept. 11 attacks.”

So the Aug. 6 photo may show this historic moment, though quite possibly not. In any case, some newspapers failed to include the exact date with the widely used Miers photo today. A New York Times spokesman told E&P: "The wording of the caption occurred in the course of routine editing and has no broader significance."

The photo that ran in so many papers and on their Web sites originally came from the White House but was moved by the Associated Press, clearly marked as an “Aug. 6, 2001” file photo. It shows Miers with a document or documents in her right hand, as her left hand points to something in another paper balanced on the president's right leg. Two others in the background are Deputy Chief of Staff Joe Hagin and Steve Biegun of the national security staff.

The PDB was headed “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.,” and notes, among other things, FBI information indicating “patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent with preparations for hijackings or other types of attacks.”

yawn. All that "Osama


All that "Osama strikes" stuff is just part of the false-flag disinfo legend attached to the psy-op.

Any of you folks need a map, or a compass?

News flash: Osama didn't do 9/11.

blimp pilot... I wrote those

blimp pilot... I wrote those articles a LONG time ago, and they are STILL useful tools for the newcomer, or to ANYONE when trying to convince someone that what we were told was a LIE...

If you can't convince someone of the lie, then you'll NEVER convince them of the crime perpetrated by our Government.

blimp pilot... just out of curiousity, are you calling me "disinfo"? Please clarify your position on that. Thanks. Also, you never explained to me what the "bogus plane theory" was.

And blimp pilot, I'm STILL

And blimp pilot, I'm STILL looking for any piece of information presented by you that is HELPFUL to the cause... any time now.
