PDB Blogswarm

I see that bluegal has started a blogswarm for the 6th anniversary of the presidential daily briefing titled "Bin Laden determined to strike in U.S.". Because we love bluegal, we're in.
Remember this story?

[A]n unnamed CIA briefer who flew to Bush’s Texas ranch during the scary summer of 2001, amid a flurry of reports of a pending al-Qaeda attack, to call the president’s attention personally to the now-famous Aug. 6, 2001, memo titled “Bin Ladin Determined to Strike in US.” Bush reportedly heard the briefer out and replied: “All right. You’ve covered
your ass, now.”

The administration was too busy trying to figure out a way to start a war with Iraq to care about Bin Laden. And the rest is history.
