I don't think that any one could have predicted that

Did someone Photoshop that picture or is 'My Pet Goat' really upside down? ...and from Crooks & Liars, a day late:

'Today is not only the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, it is the day six years ago that Bush received the infamous “Bin Laden determined to strike in US” Presidential Daily Bulletin. Carpetbagger has more, and there’s a blogswarm going on as well…'

Condoleezza Rice (aka Madame Supertanker) was the National Security Advisor who read Bush his briefings in 2001. Later she made the infamous statements including "I don't think that any one could have predicted that..." and "this was not a warning." Again, the title of the the August 6, 2001 PDB (gif): "Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States." Spocko's Brain has a video that effectively lays out the context of the PDB (the briefing presented to the President by the National Security Advisor) with a timeline highlighting some of the official warnings that clearly anticipated the 9-11 attack.

Heckava job Condi.
