In July 2001 Judith Miller was doing an article on the U.S.S. Cole attack when she was passed information from a high level White House offical about
a planned Al Qeada attack in the United States. For editorial reasons apparently, the story never ran...the rest is history. This interview with Ms.
Miller lays out in clear detail what happened.
In 2001, an anonymous White House source leaked top-secret NSA intelligence to reporter Judith Miller that Al Qaida was planning a major attack on
the United States. But the story never made it into the paper.
On Oct. 12, 2000, the guided missile destroyer USS Cole pulled into harbor for refueling in Aden, Yemen. Less than two hours later, suicide bombers
Ibrahim al-Thawr and Abdullah al-Misawa approached the ship's port side in a small inflatable craft laden with explosives and blew a 40-by-40-foot
gash in it, killing 17 sailors and injuring 39 others. The attack on the Cole, organized and carried out by Osama bin Laden's Al Qaida terrorist
group, was a seminal but still murky and largely misunderstood event in America's ongoing "Long War."

I have never thought the White House had a role in 9/11, they just don't have the imagination neccessary to pull it off. But at the same time I have
always believed that they either let it happen for political reasons or that they didn't believe it would (or conversely that it wouldn't be as bad
as it was). Miller a strong Bush supporter was apparently told something was up. If the White House knew it was going to happen and did nothing, as
this intereview suggests it would be negligence at the very least and treason at worst. You decide.
Any credible proof? If not, its not even worth a mention because its worthless whether it did or didnt happen. If she can provide solid proof that
they knew, then I say it definately works against the administration...I would think. At the same time it will back up the claim that al qaeda did do
the terrorist attacks. Since shes a strong bush supporter it makes me wonder if its going to end up working for them or against them.
If this is true, that a reporter, any reporter was told before 9/11 by a White House insider that they knew Al Qeada wasa planning an attack inside
the U.S. then it gives lie to the claim that they didn't know, so it is news, major news. The past 5 years were all built around what happened that
