10 days after September 11, Bush was told there was no Iraq connection

Via The Huffington Post, via ars poetica, is the news that on September 21, 2001, a mere ten days after the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, George W. Bush was given a highly classified briefing whose subject was: There is no evidence that Saddam Hussein had anything to do with the attacks, and no evidence that links Iraq with al Qaeda.

The information in this briefing was never given to Congress. One can speculate that the information was given to Bush on an urgent basis because it was known that he was itching to invade Iraq.

Highly classified or not, someone from the intelligence community needed to come forward and tell the American people what was going on. No one did.
