“By July 5, 2001, National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice reported that, while ‘nonspecific,’ the intelligence [regarding an impending terrorist attack] was ‘sufficiently robust’ that President George W. Bush asked her ‘to go back and to see what was being done about all of the chatter.’ But White House terrorism adviser Richard Clarke had a more urgent view. In a meeting that same day with a series of agencies including the FBI, FAA [Federal Aviation Administration], and INS [Immigration Naturalization Service], he warned that ‘something really spectacular is going to happen here, and it’s going to happen soon.’ ”
