NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER CONDOLEEZZA RICE REPEATEDLY PRESSED HER MESSAGE IN SWORN TESTIMONY TO THE SEPTEMBER 11TH COMMISSION: THE BUSH WHITE HOUSE "DID" TAKE THE AL QAEDA THREAT SERIOUSLY BEFORE 9-11. CONDOLEEZZA RICE/NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER: We all had a strong sense this was a VERY crucial issue. DR. RICE ADMITTED THAT BECAUSE OF A STRUCTURAL PROBLEM, INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES DIDN'T CONNECT THE DOTS ABOUT THE TERROR PLOT. Rice: YET AS YOUR HEARINGS HAVE SHOW THERE WAS NO SILVER BULLET THAT COULD HAVE PREVENTED THE 9-11 TERRORIST ATTACK. BUT SHE CONTRADICTED FORMER COUNTER-TERRORISM CHIEF RICHARD CLARKE. HE TOLD THE COMMISSION THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION DIDN'T PAY ENOUGH ATTENTION TO AL QAEDA, AND PUSHED TOO HARD TO LINK THE ATTACKS TO IRAQ.
RICE I am quite certain the President never pushed anybody to twist the facts. ELIZABETH SANCHEZ/CBS NEWS: BRIDGE: DR. RICE SAID PRESIDENT BUSH WAS TIRED OF SWATTING AT FLIES WHEN DEALING WITH AL QAEDA, AND WANTED A TOUGHER POLICY. THAT LED TO ONE OF SEVERAL HEATED EXCHANGES DURING HER THREE HOURS IN THE WITNESS CHAIR: BOB KERREY/9-11 COMMISSIONER: KERREY: Can you tell me one example where the president swatted a fly when it came to Al Qaida prior to 9/11? RICE: I think what the president was speaking to was... KERREY: No, no. What fly had he swatted? RICE: Well, the disruptions abroad was what he was really focusing on... KERREY: No, no... RICE: ... when the CIA would go after Abu Zubaydah.. KERREY: He hadn't swatted.. RICE: ... or go after this guy... KERREY: Dr. Rice, we didn't... RICE: That was what was meant. KERREY: We only swatted a fly once on the 20th of August 1998. We didn't swat any flies afterwards. How the hell could he be tired?) BUT THE PANELISTS SAID OVERALL, THEY WERE IMPRESSED...BUT THEY HAVE STILL HAVE MORE TO LEARN FROM DR. RICE. AND MAY WANT TO MEET WITH HER AGAIN...IN PRIVATE. ELIZABETH SANCHEZ, CBS NEWS, THE WHITE HOUSE. THE COMMISSION WILL ALSO PUSH TO MAKE A BRIEFING PAPER DECLASSIED. IT WAS PREPARED FIVE WEEKS BEFORE 9-11, IT'S TITLE?
