August 6, 2001 Never Forget

On this day, in 2001, Harriet Miers, serving as Assistant to the President and Staff Secretary, gave George W. Bush his Presidential Daily Briefing entitled Bin Laden determined to strike in US. He went off on a bike ride, and took no action. He was on vacation, after all.

This picture was taken that day, this might actually be the ill-fated memo.

September 11, followed, and the rest is our sad history. For me, this date marks the absolute descent into Hell, the exact moment when we had our souls ripped away and so much tragedy, so much grief, so much suffering around the world really began in earnest.

Take a moment today to consider what might have been different if the idiot son of an asshole, an illiterate, dry-drunk, sonofabitch had not been illegally installed by The Supreme Court to be our president.

  2. Possible we’d only be in Afghanistan on trumped up charges in order to secure those swanky minerals. Though Yemen’s lookin’ kinda shifty, too.

    We shouldn’t get so worked up about that memo. It’s not as if he can read.
