Did Condoleeza Rice Hide Key Info From The 9/11 Commission?

The media's favorite administration member has been a bad, bad girl...

NY Times: Sept. 11 Panel Wasn’t Told of Meeting, Members Say
Members of the Sept. 11 commission said Sunday they were alarmed that they were told nothing about a July 2001 White House meeting at which George J. Tenet, then director of central intelligence, is reported to have warned Condoleezza Rice, then national security adviser, about an imminent attack by Al Qaeda and failed to persuade her to take action.

Details of the meeting on July 10, 2001, two months before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, were first reported last week in a new book by Bob Woodward. The White House disputes his account.

The final report from the Sept. 11 commission made no mention of the meeting, nor did it suggest that there had been such an encounter between Mr. Tenet and Ms. Rice, now secretary of state....

Sec. Rice states that she has no recollection of this meeting taking place.

UPDATE: Sorry, Condi- the meeting with Tenet has now been confirmed.

UPDATE #2: Condi's defense = Don't blame me, President Bush wouldn't let me resign!
