“As the summer dragged on and it became increasingly clear that al Qaeda was going to strike against the U.S., possibly within the U.S., [President] Bush tasked the CIA and the military to come up with a strategy to invade Afghanistan and neutralize bin Laden. The plan, completed on September 10 [2001], was lying on Bush’s desk when [lead 9/11 hijacker Mohamed] Atta and his friends began their attacks.”
