Joseph Ralston

Madeleine Albright's main complaint about "Path to 9/11" so far is that she didn't do something the film says she did (warn the Pakistanis about a missile attack on al Qaeda in Afghanistan). The 9/11 Report does not name who did it: it was Joseph Ralston. It only says it was "Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs." Ralston is named in only one place in the Report, on page 482, in a separate footnote related to the incident.

I found only one article about the film mentioning Ralston's name, too. After I found the name, I Googled for "ralston albright pakistan" and came up with a single CNN story that mentions him (and a few other places where this story was reprinted).

Just thought some of you might want to know.
