She lied about Clinton leaving no anti-terror plan. She lied when she said the Bush administration had received no warnings about Al Qaeda. Now, the NY Times nails down, she lied about not having met with the CIA, urgently trying to get the administration interested in terrorism two months before 9/11. Condoleezza Rice is a serial liar. She's traded her virtue for power and money. You decide what that makes her.

A review of White House records has determined that George J. Tenet, then the director of central intelligence, did brief Condoleezza Rice and other top officials on July 10, 2001, about the looming threat from Al Qaeda, a State Department spokesman said Monday.

The account by the spokesman, Sean McCormack, came hours after Ms. Rice, the secretary of state, told reporters aboard her airplane that she did not recall the specific meeting on July 10, noting that she had met repeatedly with Mr. Tenet that summer about terrorist threats. Ms. Rice, the national security adviser at the time, said it was “incomprehensible” to suggest she had ignored dire terrorist threats two months before the Sept. 11 attacks.

Mr. McCormack also said records showed that the Sept. 11 commission had been informed about the meeting, a fact that former intelligence officials and members of the commission confirmed on Monday.

The emperor has no clothes as well as a forked tongue. The implosion continues. Do the voters get it?
