Bush Releases Pre-9/11 Memo

President Bush has released the now famous August 6, 2001 memo relating to Osama's plan to attack the U.S.

.... the document said the FBI had detected "patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent with preparations for hijackings or other types of attacks, including recent surveillance of federal buildings in New York."

The Post says the memo could be viewed as contradicting Condi Rice:

"The FBI is conducting approximately 70 full field investigations throughout the U.S. that it considers Bin Laden-related. CIA and the FBI are investigating a call to our Embassy in the UAE in May saying that a group or Bin Laden supporters was in the U.S. planning attacks with explosives," the document said.

Update: Here's the text of the actual document (pdf). Here it is in html. [hat tip Poppy]
