The Mangling of Logic pt. 8

Condoleeza Rice is today's spokesperson for all that is inane. The following exchange is between Rice and 9/11 Commissioner Ben-Veniste (video here):
BEN-VENISTE: Isn't it a fact, Dr. Rice, that the August 6 PDB warned against possible attacks in this country? And I ask you whether you recall the title of that PDB?

RICE: I believe the title was, "Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States."

She goes on to explain, with a slightly impatient tone in her voice, that this PDB (presidential daily briefing) contains absolutely no warning of any sort of impending terrorist attack. It was simply an attempt by the FBI to give some historic perspective on Bin Laden's activities.

Lets examine the title (which she confirms) again. ""Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States."

What it doesn't say is Bin Laden Historically Determined to Attack the United States. Nor does it say Bin Laden Was Determined to Attack Inside the United States. It does not imply has been, or could be, or might, or did or tried to.

What it does say, through the use of strong, clear language, is that Bin Laden Is Determined to Attack Inside the USA. There can be no confusion, unless you are purposefully sowing it.

Of course, this could all be cleared up if the PDB in question would be declassified. But, because secrecy is their only refuge from justice and the truth, they refuse to do so.
