Bush "Knew" Flap

Please!. Stop it. Grow up. Join the real world. As Secretary of State Rumsfeld said on the Limbaugh show today, intelligence reports that lack specificity or "granularity" (as he put it) are not really actionable. And since there are so many threats, every day, the notion that this president (or any president) would be negligent for not responding to one non-actionable intelligence report is ludicrous.

A transcript of Secretary Rumsfeld's interview with Limbaugh should be posted shortly at this site. It is well worth reading. The fact that Democrats and their press megaphones are trying to make an issue of Bush's handling of these intelligence reports says a lot more about them than it does about Bush.
