"What I was told very specifically was that Rice took the (pre 911) warning directly to two people: the then Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and the still current Vice President Dick Cheney. What struck me odd at the time I heard this was that Condi did not bother taking this directly to the President. So she is not being entirely honest here but she is also not entirely responsible. Tenet did warn Condi as did other members of the intelligence community and both Cheney and Rumsfeld were warned as well. The President was warned by several CIA officers, despite Condi's failures to notify him."* i thought something was funny with the timing around the story about Tenet being told about the Ledeen/Ghorba meetings. Muriel Kane has the details.
