The astonishing thing is not the headline, which is just below the fold of the print edition, but the very first sentence:

American aviation officials were warned as early as 1998 that Al Qaeda could "seek to hijack a commercial jet and slam it into a U.S. landmark," according to previously secret portions of a report prepared last year by the Sept. 11 commission.

F.A.A. Alerted on Qaeda in '98, 9/11 Panel Said

Ahh, so they did put 2 and 2 together regarding the Algierian hijacking in '94, and Bojinka in '95, etcetera....

It is explained herein, that these revelations come as some of the formerly redacted portions from the 9/11 reports issued in January are now revealed, which only came after the Bush administration stalled their release until after the elections. (They were ready in August last year, but Rove decided they needed time and some magic markers before releasing them).

So do tell us, Condi Nobody-knew-they-would-use-planes-as-missiles Rice: how big is your nose? Oh and Mr. Bush, we eagerly await "I take full Responsibility...." ACT II
