Bush Was Warned of Possible Attack in U.S., Official Says


Published: April 10, 2004

WASHINGTON, April 9 — President Bush was told more than a month before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, that supporters of Osama bin Laden planned an attack within the United States with explosives and wanted to hijack airplanes, a government official said Friday.

The warning came in a secret briefing that Mr. Bush received at his ranch in Crawford, Tex., on Aug. 6, 2001. A report by a joint Congressional committee last year alluded to a "closely held intelligence report" that month about the threat of an attack by Al Qaeda, and the official confirmed an account by The Associated Press on Friday saying that the report was in fact part of the president's briefing in Crawford.
UPDATE: Here's what I think happened. The Bush Administration had said that the August 6th PDB would be released, perhaps even in a day. On Friday, they hedged on that, saying that it might be next week sometime.

So the 9/11 Commission kicked them to the curb, with major leaks about some specifics in the PDB.

Who's scheduled to be on the Sunday talk shows this week? Tim Russert's got John McCain, and that's unlikely to change. Face the Nation has Senators Pat Roberts and Joseph Biden, and Stephanopoulos has Richard Perle and Rand Beers. Chris Wallace will be trying to ram a gag into Richard Ben-Venista over on Fox - that should be worth watching.

But McCain will be a must-see here.
