Records Show CIA Told Rice of Imminent Terror Threat

Hosted by

In his latest book, State of Denial, Bob Woodward reports that former CIA Director George Tenet and his aide, Cofer Black, gave Condoleezza Rice their "starkest warning" that al Quaeda had plans to attack the US in a meeting held two months before September 11. Woodward writes they felt that Rice, then National Security Advisor, gave them "the brush off." While Rice acknowledges "a steady stream of quite alarmist reports about possible attacks," she denies brushing off Tenet.
