Eichenwald on Maddow Show
Leading up to 9/11, CIA people said "we ought to put in for a transfer because when the attack comes we will be blamed for it. We won't be blamed for not telling them but blamed for not convincing them." Condi tried to explain away the famous August 6 memo by saying it did not say attack was imminent. True, but earlier briefings did warn they were imminent.
Apparently Ari Fleischer today called him "a 9/11 truther." Eichenwald: "One of the things about Ari Fleischer and all these people is they are coming down a well-worn path." Just like they called Richard Clarke a liar. "This is what they know how to do, people like Ari Fleischer who can't deal with facts. I just talked to him and asked him to cite one fact that's not the truth [in what he wrote] and he couldn't."
