Condoleeza Rice was scheduled to give a speech on “the threats and problems of today and the day after, not the world of yesterday.” The speech was scheduled for Sept 11, 2001. It covered items such as missile defense, but there wasn’t much of a focus on terrorism and Islamic radicals.
Interesting? To be sure. But every cycle spent trying to portray the Bush administration as weak on terror before 9-11, is a cycle that could be spent on the real issue. Their performance after 9-11, specifically when it comes to Iraq.
