There Is Nothing Hidden That Won't Be Revealed

There is Nothing Hidden that Will Not Be Revealed

A review of White House records has determined that George J. Tenet, then the director of central intelligence, did brief Condoleezza Rice and other top officials on July 10, 2001, about the looming threat from Al Qaeda, a State Department spokesman said Monday.The account by Sean McCormack came hours after Ms. Rice, the secretary of state, told reporters aboard her airplane that she did not recall the specific meeting on July 10, 2001, noting that she had met repeatedly with Mr. Tenet that summer about terrorist threats. Ms. Rice, the national security adviser at the time, said it was “incomprehensible” she ignored dire terrorist threats two months before the Sept. 11 attacks. Mr. McCormack also said records show that the Sept. 11 commission was informed about the meeting, a fact that former intelligence officials and members of the commission confirmed on Monday. When details of the meeting emerged last week in a new book by Bob Woodward of The Washington Post, Bush administration officials questioned Mr. Woodward’s reporting. Now, after several days, both current and former Bush administration officials have confirmed parts of Mr. Woodward’s account.Officials now agree that on July 10, 2001, Mr. Tenet and his counterterrorism deputy, J. Cofer Black, were so alarmed about an impending Al Qaeda attack that they demanded an emergency meeting at the White House with Ms. Rice and her National Security Council staff.” Records Show Tenet Briefed Rice on Al Qaeda Threat By PHILIP SHENON and MARK MAZZETTI

Have you ever heard any older black folks refer to the Hell hounds? They were the vicious blood hounds that tracked our escaped ancestors trying to return them to a hellish existence during slavery or to the convict leasing chain gangs back in the day. The term is also a metaphor for fast approaching bad Karma; try as one may, escape from the dire consequences of or action is unlikely. Well the Hell hounds are on the loose and on the trail of the Bu$hites. After six years of being given a virtual free pass by the corporate main stream media on just about every gaff, every debacle and every lie imaginable, it appears the worm has turned. At lest for the time being it seems the ruling elites are doing everything they can to ruin Boy George and his NeoCon cabal. A new book by Washington insider Bob Woodward entitled State of Denial has revealed what many of us intuitively believed about 9-11 all along; the Bu$h administration or at least several key insiders were warned well in advance about attacks against the US and they did nothing!! The Bu$hites are like cornered wounded rabid animals, they are desperate right about now as Woodward’s book is making huge waves in the marketplace. Usually when this occurs the ruling elites or “powerful” people in the hot seat go into a damage control mode and trot out a diversion to distract Joe and Jane Sixpack in order to take the focus and heat off of them. Often they resort to PR and other Jedi mind tricks (tricknowlogy) to get a weak minded and gullible populous to go for even more okey-doke.

The only diversion on the scene now is the revelation about Republican Congressman Mark Foley’s predilection for sending inappropriate sexual E-mails to underage Congressional pages and the shootings in the Pennsylvania Amish Country. The Foley revelations do not help the Republicans. They even increase their woes as news about record September job losses just hit the news. From a metaphysical point of view, there is a saying, “there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed.” All the lies Bu$h told, all the deception and all the wanton killing he unleashed on the world is coming to light and back to haunt him. Now he and his staff are scrambling feebly to put their counter-spin on Woodward’s assertions. Little do they know things will get worse before they get better. If the rest of the mass media picks up on this story they will be in deep cow dung.

Condoleezza Rice has denied Woodard’s assertions she was briefed by CIA Director George Tenet about pending terrorist attacks. But official White House records contradict Rice’s denials. “Now, after several days, both current and former Bush administration officials have confirmed parts of Mr. Woodward’s account. Officials now agree that on July 10, 2001, Mr. Tenet and his counterterrorism deputy, J. Cofer Black, were so alarmed about an impending Al Qaeda attack that they demanded an emergency meeting at the White House with Ms. Rice and her National Security Council staff. According to two former intelligence officials, Mr. Tenet told those assembled at the White House about the growing body of intelligence the Central Intelligence Agency had collected pointing to an impending Al Qaeda attack. But both current and former officials took issue with Mr. Woodward’s account that Mr. Tenet and his aides left the meeting in frustration, feeling as if Ms. Rice had ignored them. Mr. Tenet told members of the Sept. 11 commission about the July 10 meeting when they interviewed him in early 2004, but committee members said the former C.I.A. director never indicated he had left the White House with the impression that he had been ignored. ‘Tenet never told us that he was brushed off,’ said Richard Ben-Veniste, a Democratic member of the commission. ‘We certainly would have followed that up.” Mr. McCormack said the records showed that, far from ignoring Mr. Tenet’s warnings, Ms. Rice acted on the intelligence and requested that Mr. Tenet make the same presentation to Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and Atttorney General John Ashcroft. But Mr. Ashcroft said by telephone on Monday evening that he never received a briefing that summer from Mr. Tenet.”

Everyone is back peddling now, claiming they weren’t briefed, they can’t recall or they weren’t told this or that. Even the bogus 9-11 Commission is caught in the salad of lies, finger pointing and denials. Sounds ominously like the Watergate scandal in which by the way Bob Woodward played a crucial part in exposing the cover up of the burglary by the Nixon administration. Ironically Woodward and his fellow Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein became icons as crusading idealists going after the truth about a sitting US president’s role in a minor office break in. From there Woodward went on to become a Washington insider, a chronicler of the inner workings of the beltway crowd. Up until this latest book Woodward’s main claim to fame was being a shill for the Bu$h administration and the NeoCon agenda. What made him change? Why is Woodward all of a sudden the lead Hell hound snipping at Bu$h’s heels? Sooner or later the truth will be revealed.

The Bu$hites are so desperate they will probably apply pressure to their corporate media buddies to focus on the Foley scandal or the Amish Country shootings to divert our attention from more potentially damaging revelations about Bu$h’s malfeasance and/or treason. But with all the hoopla about Foley, with the Republicans finger pointing at each other and Democrats accusing the Republicans of a cover up, the Republicans are on the defensive big time. Their armor has plenty of chinks in it. Now they won’t even be able to steal the upcoming 2006 elections without an even fouler stench filling the air and people becoming even more suspicious and determined to get answers about 9-11.

Could this be what the ruling elites want, a subtle coup and the ousting of the current NeoConcrazies? Stay tuned for this one. The Hell hounds are on the loose. Will Bu$h be like Teflon Ronald Reagan and escape the clutches of the Hell hounds or will the media turn the people against him like they did Clinton and Nixon? Time will tell.
