    Guess Condaleeza had a lapse of memory about being briefed about the threat of Al Quaeda, looks like there is a paper trail... get tired of polls and article and columns trying to determine who is more culpible for 9-11, bottom line both sides were asleep at the wheel and all share equal responsibility for what happened on that day, more and more the need for a new third party is being indicated... probably never happen, but need something better than the lesser of two evils.

    JIDDA, Saudi Arabia, Oct. 2 — 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.

    Go to Election GuideMore Politics NewsThe 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.
