Al Qaeda was caught by several foreign intelligence services (including the Russians) discussing crashing a plane into the hotel that President GW Bush was staying at in Genoa, Italy in July 2001 in order to assassinate him. It was due to this threat, which was taken so seriously by Secret Service that they moved Bush from the hotel to an offshore boat surrounded by anti-aircraft guns, that the Bush Administration requested that the August 6th, 2001 PDB (Presidential Daily Briefing) from the US Intelligence Community be on the subject of Al Qaeda’s plans for attacks within the United States. So when National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice told the 9/11 Commission that the Administration had no idea that “planes could be used as missiles”, besides all of the other evidence to the contrary there was this: 1. July Bush warned Al Qaeda plans to kill him with a plane used as a missile 2. August, Bush requested PDB on Al Qaeda plans to attack the US (which was a pretty worthless PDB with scant details in it). 3. September, 9/11 attacks……much worse than any of “Benghazi scandals”.
