Bush Administration Pre-9/11 Focus Was Missile Defense, Not Terrorism


In her interview with the New York Post, Condoleezza Rice falsely claimed
that President Bush's pre-9/11 anti-terror efforts were "at least as
aggressive" as President Clinton's. In fact, the 9-11 Commission disputes
that account. While the Bush administration should have been preparing for
a potential terrorist attack, it was instead focused on developing a
costly missile defense system.
