Woodward Talks - Why Now?

Why has it taken 5 years and a second Bush term to get this out?
Condoleza Rice has been promoted from National Security Advisor to Secretary of State as well!

"One book, State of Denial, by veteran Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward,
asserts that Tenet and a senior aide, Cofer Black, held an unscheduled meeting
with Rice on July 10, 2001. Woodward writes that Tenet sought the meeting
because he wanted to press the administration to take action immediately
against al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden to disrupt a possible attack in the
United States."

Bob Woodward did make it clear that something was rotten in Washington in his book "Bush at War", but this new accusation just throws more chaos at us. Why now?

1. Bush was planning the Iraq war within days of 9/11.
2. Cheney was so fixated with WMDs that he kept asking about them in Afghanistan too.
3. George Tenet was eating breakfast with an Oklahoma congressman on 9/11/01.

4. A note after "Plan of Attack" - George Tenet resigned on 7/11!

Is Woodward intentionally confusing our view of a rotten administration?
Why is this coming out now?

It should be noted that Woodward sold his notes on Watergate to the Texas State System.

I would be saddened if this is true. Woodward and Watergate seemed to be a such a success for Journalism.

Why did'nt we have him for JFK and RFK? All we got were FBI conspiracy theories.

Rumsfeld does have to go. But Rumsfeld isn't the only problem.
