Could 9/11 have been prevented if Bush had paid attention to intelligence?

Well the mud just keeps getting deeper and deeper in front of the White House this election season, and the lies become more and more pervasive and despicable in their scope. Now comes compelling evidence that had the Bush Administration listen to the intelligence being presented, there is a more then even chance that 9/11 could have been prevented.

For anyone that missed it, 60 Minutes held an interview with Richard Clark the Bush Administration’s former counter-terrorism coordinator. He stated:

“[f]rankly, I find it outrageous that the president is running for re-election on the grounds that he’s done such great things about terrorism,” Clarke said during the 60 Minutes interview. “He ignored it. He ignored terrorism for months, when maybe we could have done something to stop 9/11. Maybe. We’ll never know.”

I don’t know about the rest of the American public, but I am growing increasingly weary of the almost daily litany of half-truths and impeachable offenses perpetrated by the Bush Administration swathed in the clothing of leadership. With each passing day it is growing increasingly clear that Bush’s mediocre standing, marginal intelligence, and lack of understanding even the most basic foreign policy doctrines make him unfit to hold the office of President of the United States. Perhaps the American public will now wake up and see that being a good ole boy is nigh enough to be President of the worlds mightiest nation; the job requires intellectual curiosity, wisdom, and more then a passing interest in the world outside Crawford Texas.

Again, I call for impeachment. Anyone care to second the motion?
