Bush says no foreknowledge of 9/11 attacks

WASHINGTON, April 5 (UPI) -- President George W. Bush has disavowed foreknowledge of al-Qaida's 2001 terror attacks, saying he would have prevented them if he could have.

"If we'd had known the enemy was going to fly airplanes into a building, we would have done everything in our power to stop it," Bush said. "When I realized the stakes were changed, this country immediately got on war footing."

Bush made the remarks to reporters in Charlotte, where he had given a speech on worker re-training.

He said he was looking forward to meeting soon with the Congressionally appointed panel investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and "sharing information with them."

Bush announced last week he and Vice President Dick Cheney would meet jointly with the commission in private and national security adviser Condoleezza Rice would testify in open session.

Rice will travel to Capitol Hill for questioning Thursday.

Former White House counter-intelligence chief Richard Clarke, in interviews and in a book, has accused the Bush White House with not doing enough to prevent the attacks that claimed the lives of nearly 3,000people.
