Horse Dead, Continue Beating: The Washington Post has uncovered further proof that the Bush administration wasn't focussing on terrorism before 9/11. The latest evidence is a speech prepared for Condoleezza Rice, to be delivered on September 11, 2001, in which she would highlight rogue states and missile defense as the greatest national security issues.

Haven't we been through this already? Neither Bush, nor Clinton, nor Gore, nor Nader was focussing on terrorism before 9/11. All this 20/20-hindsight attempt to make Bush look negligent is getting old.

I know Richard Clarke focussed on terrorism before 9/11. But the counter-terrorism czar for the White House is supposed to focus on counter-terrorism. We had no reason before 9/11 to concentrate on terrorists. Now we do. Let's focus on what we should do next.
