They're looking for what put those solders in harm's way in the first place.Uh, duh!
It was this guy:
And speaking of that guy and the notorious Aug. 6, 2001 PDB that he ignored, from Tim Grieve at Salon's War Room who is reading Ron Suskind's new book, The One Percent Doctrine (via Daily KOS):
We've known for years now that George W. Bush received a presidential daily briefing on Aug. 6, 2001, in which he was warned: "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S." We've known for almost as long that Bush went fishing afterward.WTF?!?
What we didn't know is what happened in between the briefing and the fishing, and now Suskind is here to tell us. Bush listened to the briefing, Suskind says, then told the CIA briefer: "All right. You've covered your ass, now."
