http://www.khou.com/sharedcontent/nationworld/washingtonprint/041404cckttwwashTenet911.1265794e4.html WASHINGTON, D.C. — CIA Director George Tenet misspoke Wednesday when he told a federal panel reviewing the Sept. 11 attacks that he did not meet with President Bush in August 2001.Under questioning by commissioner Tim Roemer, Tenet said he never spoke with Bush during the month before the attacks, a period marked by concern over possible terrorist strike."He was on vacation and I was here," Tenet said, although he added that he could have picked up the phone and called the president at any time if he had felt the need to communicate with him.In fact, Tenet flew to Texas to brief Bush on Aug. 17, 2001, and briefed the president again on Aug. 31 when Bush returned to Washington, a spokesman for Tenet said later in the day.During the first eight days of September, Tenet briefed Bush at least six times, the spokesman said.Copyright 2004 Associated Press.

http://www.actionforum.com/forum/index.html?forum_id=264 THE MESSAGE TO POST AT MOVEON.ORG'S url above:TAKE ON THE 9-11 TRUTH MOVEMENT ISSUE !! The Lies Are Coming Unraveled. WENEED TO PUSH HARD AND FAST !! We must create a MASS demand for the media (andCongress) to address the below lies given under oath by this Administration.IF the peace movement were smart they would take on the 9-11 truth issue witha vengeance !! Lies have surfaced in sworn testimony by Ashcroft, Tenet,Rice, etc.Begin a 9-11 truth movement with your local organizations, seewww.911visibility.orgREAD: "The New Pearl Harbor" and urge all you know to. Copies have beendelivered to ALL members of the Govt. 9-11 Commission. One 9-11 widow is suingBush et al under the RICO Racketeering Act for foreknowledge of 9-11, allowingit to occur for political gain, and engaging in a criminal cover up.With a fast mass mobilization to demand answers to these, the thugs inWashington could be brought down and their criminal intentions exposed. Some liesare:Ashcroft: Claims he stopped flying commercial jets before 9-11 once becauseof a heightened threat against him (there is no record of this), and twobecause his guards had guns (all previous Atty Gen's guards had guns, and they flewcommercial).Tenet: Did not brief Bush on heightened terror threat and the suspectedterrorists training in the U.S. (Later the CIA reported indeed Tenet met withBush TWICE in August of 2001). When the planes hit the towers Tenet says, "Oh,I hope that wasn't the terrorist training to fly in the U.S."Rice: "We had no idea anyone would fly planes into buildings."

Trip (CIA says he went 8/17/01)14 Apr 2004 21:04:12 GMTCIA director doesn't recall trip to Texas in 2001WASHINGTON, April 14 (Reuters) - CIA Director GeorgeTenet insisted he had no contact with thepresident who was vacationing in Texas during themonth before the Sept. 11 attacks. But he wasmistaken.A CIA spokesman later said Tenet had in fact gone toTexas during August of that year to brief PresidentGeorge W. Bush."I didn't see the president. I was not in briefingswith him during this time. He was on vacation. I washere," Tenet told the commission investigating theattacks on Wednesday....***The CIA spokesman said Tenet had flown to Texas onAug. 17, 2001, to brief the president.**************************************************ASHCROFT:4/15/04Ashcroft Fails to Allay Suspicions Regarding Avoidance Of Commercial AirlinesIn response To Commissioner Richard Ben-Veniste's question on 4/13/04 toAttorney General Ashcroft on his reported avoidance of commercial airlines(see Paul Thompson's timeline for 7/26/01), Mr. Ashcroft made the followingassertions:1) He only uses government planes while on government business.Consider- The article from CBS.com is the evidence he began flyingcommercial before 9/11/01. It begins with the words, "Fishing rod inhand..."2) He was avoiding commercial flights because of the special weapons hisbodyguards carry.Consider-The article continues, "There was a threat assessment andthere were guidelines. He is acting under guidelines." So which is it, therewas a threat assessment or not? Also, since the assessment came from the FBI,isn't this the same FBI that hadn't seen the Phoenix memo, Rowley's memo, orthe8/6/01 pdb?3) His wife flew commercial to Europe recently.Consider- Does that mean he flew with her? Why didn't he say "Mywife and I flew commercial?" The CBS article also said he had been" advisedtofly only by private jet the remainder of his term." When did the guidelineschange? Could it be they were relaxed soon after 9/11/01? If he flewcommercial somuch, can we find anyone out there who saw him on such flights? Maybe they'rethe same folks who remember seeing W serving in the national guard in Alabama?Other points of note:1) The easiest way to resolve this is for the commission to request afull list of flights, both commercial and otherwise, that Ashcroft has takensince July of 2001.2) The commission should require the FBI to produce, any and all proofthat there were threat assessments. They should start by finding out who wasquoted in the CBS.com article.3) Doesn't it seem ironic that Ashcroft's predecessor Janet Reno, whoupset the Cuban-American community over Elian and upset the militia types overWaco and Ruby Ridge, should never be required to stop flying commercial? IfMr. Ben-Veniste is sincere about wanting to avoid his participation in anotherWarren Commission (meaning government cover-up generating conspiracy theoriesfor decades), he should make sure the flight lists and threat assessments aresecured.
