Pre-9/11 intelligence

Once again, this is a huge topic which I'm only going to mention a few small pieces of- Project Bojinka and Able Danger.

Project Bojinka

Able Danger

Former FBI director Louis Freeh is coming down hard on the 9/11 commission over its refusal to investigate Able Danger. In an op/ed piece in The Wall Street Journal today, Freeh said claims made by Able Danger could be the most important disclosure in the 9/11 inquiry. In fact, saying the 9/11 commission's work will be incomplete until it investigates those claims.

Freeh says quote, the 9/11 commission inexplicably concluded that it was not historically significant. This astounding conclusion in combination with the failure to investigate Able Danger and incorporate it into its findings raises serious challenges to the commission's credibility. And if the facts prove out, might just render the commission historically insignificant itself.

The Able Danger U.S. Army intelligence unit claims to have identified 9/11 mastermind Mohammad Atta and other 9/11 radical Islamist terrorists more than a year before 9/11.

Able Danger officials say they were not allowed to share that information with agencies that could have prevented the terrorist attack. Leading to one of the worst intelligence failures in the country's history and of course, great tragedy. Congressman Curt Weldon demanding those officials be allowed to testify before Congress. Now, more than half of the House of Representatives, 235 members, have agreed with Congressman Weldon and have signed on to a letter to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

Okay, I can't resist adding a few more:
