“The Joint Intelligence Committees said…in a report issued in December 2002: ‘…neither President [Bill] Clinton nor President Bush nor their National Security Councils put the government or the Intelligence Community on a war footing before September 11th.’ …before 9/11, bin Laden was, by our government’s definition, an international criminal, not an imminent national security threat. Afterward, we saw him for what he was, the head of a shadowy army intent on carrying the terror war to our shores and murdering as many Americans as he could.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
