According to ex-CIA boss George Tenet, a Bush ally was calling for Iraq’s head on the day after Sept. 11. “Iraq has to pay a price for what happened yesterday,” Richard Perle told Tenet, according to his new book.
According to this report, Perle was in France on Sept. 12. And air travel didn’t resume for 4 more days. Seems like a pretty large fact error. I’m sure the error won’t receve much coverage since it doesn’t fit into the Bush-was-focused-on-Iraq-for-all-the-wrong-reasons frame.
