Overview of this Controversy

Date Originated: November of 2015
Categories: George W Bush Admin
New documents show that the Bush Administration was warned about an imminent terrorist attack on U.S. soil well before previously known and that the President did nothing about it. Top CIA Officials at the time of 9/11 recently came forward and accused the Administration of refusing conduct an operation to wipe out Al-Queda because the did not "want the clock to start ticking." (Translation: they did not want a paper trail to show that they’d been warned.)

It infuriates me that this wasn't a bigger story. It's important for Americans to realize that Bush purposefully ignored these warnings because it shows he was unwilling or unable to do what it took to prevent 9/11 in the first place.
