Condoleeza Rice: Teaming with Aretha Franklin

On Tuesday night, the Mann Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia was the landing place for Aretha Franklin. The program was to benefit inner-city youth programs and education incentives. While having Aretha on hand was a big deal to the event but she was joined by a big political figure too. Condoleeza Rice was on hand to help Aretha with the charity event.

Good Morning America was quick to grab the story this morning about the two meeting in Philadelphia. The two were quickly labeled as the “Diva and the Diplomat”. These two women are both gorgeous were on hand to lend a hand and their heart in Philadelphia. While Condoleeza Rice was enjoying her time, Obama’s choice for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is out trying to work on national relations.

The celebrities, the celebrity-athletes and the celebrity-politician have a huge voice when it comes to raising money for various charities. Moreover,┬áthe former Secretary of State continues to ┬álend her name to benefit the children in America. In most cases, lending a name isn’t enough, we need those folks to show just how big their heart is when it comes to our nation’s children. This is just proof that Condoleeza Rice made an excellent Secretary of State and it would be nice to see her back in that position.

    Condi Rice told the 9/11 Commission and the 9/11 Widows under oath that the “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in US” memo was not a warning. It warned of preparations for hijackings and planned attacks in the US.

    On July 10, 2001, CIA director George Tenet warned Condi that al Qaeda attacks were coming in the next few weeks. Later he said acting on those warnings might have prevented 9/11. Cofer Black said “The only thing we didn’t do was pull the trigger to the gun we were holding to her head.”

    The UK, Germany, Italy, and Egypt warned of aircraft as weapons; Russia of suicide pilots; Jordan and the Cayman Islands of attacks involving airlines. 13 foreign countries and 3 FBI offices warned. Israel warned of 19 terrorists plotting inside the USA, and named at least 4 of the alleged hijackers.

    The German press reported that the August 6 PDB was actually 11-1/2 pages long, not the 1-1/2 pages we’ve seen.
