Zero-tolerance on altering articles is a good policy; however, that just stopped me from taking the @ out of the author's email to reduce his spam, which i think i've done before; exception warranted?
U.S. intelligence learned in 1998 of a plot to attack the World Trade Center with hijacked airliners and in 1999 of a plot to attack the Pentagon in the same manner. On Aug. 6, five weeks before 9/11, Bush was warned of an imminent attack on the United States. But Bush didn’t bother to put the nation’s defenses on alert, not even when he was told an airliner had hit the World Trade Center.
Nor did he order national defense to action when he was told the nation was under attack. Instead, he lied that there had been no warning and no one imagined airliners being used as bombs, lies he repeated until 2004.
No reporter asked why the mightiest nation the world has known was unable to defend itself from 19 hijackers for an hour and a half.
Oh, the shades and degrees between the OCT and "inside job"
