Rice stands by her man!

By Sinclere Lee

WASHINGTON (BNW)
–Everybody in the country has thought it, but I am gone say it; Bush is screwing Condoleezza Rice. Anybody who is an observer of human nature can sense that something is going on between Bush and Rice, and it ain’t all business. Anybody can see that it’s something between them, but Bush’s wife. They cheating on her!

Under sometimes sharp questioning, national security adviser Condoleezza Rice testified that there was "no silver bullet" that could have stopped the attacks of September 11, 2001 and she stood by her man.

"Had we thought that there was an attack coming in Washington or New York, we would have moved heaven and earth to try and stop it," Rice told the independent commission investigating the attacks.

"And I know that there was no single thing that might have prevented that attack."

But Rice was pressed repeatedly about an intelligence memo presented to President Bush one month before the attacks, a document that referred to al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden and possible hijackings.

The existence of that August 6, 2001, memo, called a presidential daily briefing, has been reported before, but details about it came out Thursday.

Asked by Democratic commissioner Richard Ben-Veniste, a former Watergate prosecutor who has read the memo, to recall the title, Rice said: "I believe the title was 'Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States.'"

Family members of some 9/11 victims could be seen shaking their heads in the hearing room as they heard those words.

More than 3,000 people were killed on September 11, 2001, when 19 terrorists hijacked four commercial U.S. jets and crashed them into New York's World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in western Pennsylvania.

Rice insisted the memo did not give any advance warning of what was to happen.

"It did not warn of attacks inside the United States," Rice said. "It was historical information based on old reporting."

Later, however, Democractic commissioner Bob Kerrey, a former senator from Nebraska, said the memo told the president "that the FBI indicates patterns of suspicious activity in the United States consistent with preparations for hijacking."

The panel asked the White House to declassify the document. Thursday afternoon, a spokesman for the National Security Council said the administration is indeed working to declassify the memo.
