Anniversary

by folkbum

How are you celebrating?
Today marks seven years since the day President Bush received a President’s Daily Brief entitled “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” [. . .] At the time, Bush was vacationing at his ranch in Crawford, TX and stayed on vacation the rest of August 2001. [. . .] The day after he received the memo, “Bush seemed carefree as he spoke about the books he was reading, the work he was doing on his nearby ranch, his love of hot-weather jogging, his golf game and his 55th birthday,” the Washington Post noted. Today — 2,557 days later — Bin Laden still remains free and “determined to strike in U.S.”
And let's not forget just how upset Bush was about the memo--so upset he started swearing at his staff:
[A]fter Bush was briefed by a CIA officer on the memo, Bush replied, "All right. You've covered your ass, now."
