Bush's Real Response to the August 6th PDB

Couple days late on this, sorry.

Ron Suskind, George W. Bush and the Aug. 6, 2001, PDB - salon.com

We've known for years now that George W. Bush received a presidential daily briefing on Aug. 6, 2001, in which he was warned: "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S." We've known for almost as long that Bush went fishing afterward.

What we didn't know is what happened in between the briefing and the fishing, and now Suskind is here to tell us. Bush listened to the briefing, Suskind says, then told the CIA briefer: "All right. You've covered your ass, now."

Sounds like words from someone who had no idea something like 9/11 would occur soon eh?

A relevant quote from George Bush on the PDB:

"David, look, let me just say it again: Had I known there was going to be an attack on America, I would have moved mountains to stop the attack. I would have done everything I can. My job is to protect the American people. And I asked the intelligence agency to analyze the data to tell me whether or not we faced a threat internally, like they thought we had faced a threat in other parts of the world. That's what the PDB request was. And had there been actionable intelligence, we would have moved on it."
- George W. Bush, April 11th, 2004

Thanks Gold for the quote

As you can see, George W. Bush openly says he requested this Presidential Daily Briefing. Why would he request a PDB just so the CIA would have an alibi, or something to "cover" their "ass"?

Well that sure backfired on

"I think that any time anybody suggests or implies to the American people that this president had specific information that could have prevented the attacks on our country on September 11, that crosses the lines." - Ari Fleischer, May 2002
