A quote from President Dwight D. Eisenhower: April 16, 1953

Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in Europe during World War II

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.".....

DWIGHT D EISENHOWER, speech April 16, 1953:

7/11/01,Blee of CIA. told Rice."We Need to Go on A Wartime Footing Now, Attacks will be Spectacular"

Politico,,,,please, these are 5th,6th and 7th paragraphs of the article. Incredible......

That morning of July 10, the head of the agency’s Al Qaeda unit, Richard Blee, burst into Black’s office. “And he says, ‘Chief, this is it. Roof's fallen in,’” recounts Black. “The information that we had compiled was absolutely compelling. It was multiple-sourced. And it was sort of the last straw.” Black and his deputy rushed to the director’s office to brief Tenet. All agreed an urgent meeting at the White House was needed. Tenet picked up the white phone to Bush’s National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice. “I said, ‘Condi, I have to come see you,’” Tenet remembers. “It was one of the rare times in my seven years as director where I said, ‘I have to come see you. We're comin' right now. We have to get there.’”

Tenet vividly recalls the White House meeting with Rice and her team. (George W. Bush was on a trip to Boston.) “Rich started by saying, ‘There will be significant terrorist attacks against the United States in the coming weeks or months. The attacks will be spectacular. They may be multiple. Al Qaeda's intention is the destruction of the United States.’" ‘What do you think we need to do?’ Black responded by slamming his fist on the table, and saying, ‘We need to go on a wartime footing now!’”"

“What happened?” I ask Cofer Black. “Yeah. What did happen?” he replies. “To me it remains incomprehensible still. I mean, how is it that you could warn senior people so many times and nothing actually happened? It’s kind of like The Twilight Zone.” Remarkably, in her memoir, Condi Rice writes of the July 10 warnings: “My recollection of the meeting is not very crisp because we were discussing the threat every day.” Having raised threat levels for U.S. personnel overseas, she adds: “I thought we were doing what needed to be done.” (When I asked whether she had any further response to the comments that Tenet, Black and others made to me, her chief of staff said she stands by the account in her memoir.) Inexplicably, although Tenet brought up this meeting in his closed-door testimony before the 9/11 Commission, it was never mentioned in the committee’s final report.

In my opinion these paragraphs are the smoking gun that is clear and precise...points to Rice..points to Bush..I put this one up because it gives different information than the others...and..points directly to Condi Rice. This conversation is new to me. It is no memo, it is a conversation warning Rice of an attack. She ignored it completely.. Ignorant idiot/asshole.

.Another thought, we have been down this road before. Why again?..Why now. Maybe Tenet is really worried that Jeb could get in..maybe. It looks like the clown car is self destructing, and Jeb is playing a " good waiting game". Perhaps Tenet wants Jeb to answer some more questions about.."He kept us safe" so Jeb would be gone forever.

But as far as this is concerned.. "I know nothing" as Sargent Shultz said. I do not know why this is coming out now..

Five Worst Foods for the Brain...Huff Post..

I saw this and thought I would share this with all. There is some scientific evidence on these, it is worth a read.


1. White Rice

High glycemic-index foods increase your risk of depression.
Certain kinds of carbs can have a negative impact on your brain, resulting in an emotional health dip. A 2015 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that post-menopausal women who eat foods with a high glycemic index, meaning refined carbohydrates like white bread and rice, cornflakes, and potatoes, have a higher incidence of new-onset depression. Conversely, the more lactose, fiber, non-juice fruit, and vegetables study participants ate, the less likely they were to get depressed.

Four others are:... 2 Fruit Juices,3 Fried Foods, 4 Cheese and Pizza, and 5 Microwave Popcorn...complete descriptions and evidence are at link

About Stuart G

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.
