State Department Confirms Rice Met With Tenet on Terror Threat
``I don't know that this meeting took place,'' Rice said last night. ``What I'm quite certain of, is that it was not a meeting in which I was told there was an impending attack and I refused to respond.''
Rumsfeld, Ashcroft received warning of al Qaida attack before 9/11
One official who helped to prepare the briefing, which included a PowerPoint presentation, described it as a "10 on a scale of 1 to 10" that "connected the dots" in earlier intelligence reports to present a stark warning that al-Qaida, which had already killed Americans in Yemen, Saudi Arabia and East Africa, was poised to strike again.
This meeting was not mentioned in the 9/11 Commission's report.
