So Much Backpedaling, The Chain's Breaking

In spite of Thomas Kean's sweat-filled backpedaling of his original claim that people in Bush's White House could have prevented the 9/11 attacks, there's still a lot of denial going on (the following via so you can bet it's fair and balanced)...

White House Disputes Claim that 9-11 Could Have Been Prevented

In refuting claims by the chairman of the commission investigating the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the White House responded by saying there is nothing the administration has seen that leads them to believe that September 11th could have been prevented.

White House Spokesman Scott McClellan dismissed the comments as not being critical of the Bush administration and said, "[T]he best way to prevent something like September 11th from ever happening again is to take the fight to the terrorists. And that is exactly the kind of decisive action that this president is taking to protect the American people."
Inference: "This administration" that Kean refers to must be - oh, the CLINTON administration? Couldn't be US...WE'RE fighting terra. Pssheww. Here we go again.
