Factfilter: Sen. Bob Graham's new book shows coverup.on Saudi's behalf Bush had concluded that ''a nation-state that had aided the terrorists should not be held publicly to account,'' Graham wrote. "It was as if the president's loyalty lay more with Saudi Arabia than with America's safety.''
And there's stuff about Iraq, too. After wearing 9/11 like a tiara during the convention, will the facts finally be aired?

Bush Was Warned of Possible Attack in U.S., Official Says
"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." Then again, he had more important things
to deal with that Summer.

A Time For Dissent
This piece suggests that the Bush team has been riding high and mighty because of or since 9/11 and that it is time to ask specifically what has been gained and what lost. Leftist rant or spot on?

"How Bush should spend his windfall of political capital."
Many links have been posted in the past 10 days to cheap political opportunism in the wake of 0.81
- but this
takes the cake: an op-ed calling for Bush to explicitly
exploit this tragedy to pass bigger tax cuts, ANWR drilling, etc
. Yep, another sickening WSJ effort; I'm sure the families of the victims will take heart in knowing their loved ones are, in fact, a "windfall of political capital
" for Bush. (sorry for the two-front-page-posts-in-a-row, btw

Actually, They DO Dare Call It Treason.
Criticize Bush and be shouted down as a traitor: "The despicable traitors have made it their mission to undercut the authority of President Bush during America’s darkest hour, proving themselves even more cowardly than the terrorist murderers who are the only beneficiaries of such contemptible conduct." It's a good thing that MeFi would never sink to such levels.
