Blood on their hands: Bush administration ignored CIA warnings in the months before 9/11 that 'spectacular' terrorist attack on the U.S. was imminent.
President George W Bush's administration was informed by the CIA during an emergency meeting on July 10, 2001, that a 'spectacular' attack on the US was imminent, top former CIA officials said.
During the meeting, Bush's National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice, was informed Al Qaeda was planning 'significant terrorist attacks against the United States in the coming weeks or months'.
That warning was largely ignored prior to the 9/11 attacks months later, former CIA counterterrorism center chief Cofer Black and ex-agency director George Tenet told Politico in an interview.
