Kevin, did you go and read this link?


I think his ideas would be something that both of us could live with? What do you (all of you) think about this column?

Yes, I read it. First, tell me why I should listen to a member of the CIA on military tactics and strategy? What is his expertise in these areas? Second, since he was chief of the Bin Laden unit from 1996 to 1999, why didn't he know about the Khobar Tower bombing, the U.S. Embassy bombings in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam, and the attack on the USS Cole?

You seem to believe that the Bush Administration "knew" about the 9/11 attacks in advance and decided to let them happen for political and financial gain. This guy was supposed to have his finger on Bin Laden's pulse, so by the same logic, wouldn't he have known about these attacks?

This sounds to me just like George Tenet covering his ass. You like it, because it's what you want to hear.
