On August 6, 2001, President George W Bush was shown this PDB. It bore the title "Bin Ladin Determined to Strike in US."
In its review of the book "The One Percent Doctrine" the Washington Post wrote:
The book's opening anecdote tells of an 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."So he knew about al-Qaeda. He knew that al-Qaeda was determined to attack. The CIA even flew to dubya's vacation ranch in Crawford, Texas to personally call his attention to the PDB.
And yet he did nothing about it.
A not-so-gentle reminder of the great and glorious leader.
