If this is being soft

From The Independent:

"The report also said that only a day before the 11 September attacks, a meeting of US cabinet officials had agreed a three-pronged strategy to force Bin Laden out of Afghanistan. The third of these prongs was the forcible overthrow of the Taliban."

And the Independent portrays this as:

"But the report's greatest impact will be to undermine the credibility of President George Bush and his platform for fighting terrorism. It appears to confirm claims made at the weekend by a former White House anti-terrorism aide, Richard Clarke, that warnings he gave in early 2001 regarding al-Qa'ida were ignored."

Wanting to invade Afghanistan to get bin Laden before 911 happened sure sounds like Bush ignored al Qaeda.
