George W. Bush's Folly and 9/11

Time for more fishing
Lest we forget:

By Tim Grieve in Salon:

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.

What we didn't know is what happened in between the briefing and the fishing, and now [Ron] 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.'
It's been ten years, how about apology now. Mr. Bush?
