‘The Attacks Will Be Spectacular’

An exclusive look at how the Bush administration ignored this warning from the CIA months before 9/11, along with others that were far more detailed than previously revealed.

Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” The CIA’s famous Presidential Daily Brief, presented to George W. Bush on August 6, 2001, has always been Exhibit A in the case that his administration shrugged off warnings of an Al Qaeda attack. But months earlier, starting in the spring of 2001, the CIA repeatedly and urgently began to warn the White House that an attack was coming.

www.politico.com...


That fact alone debunks the 9/11 conspiracy claim that Bush orchestrated 9/11. In fact, a number of countries around the world had issued intelligence warnings to the United States that Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda would use hijacked airlines to kill thousands of people and to 9/11 conspiracy theorist, that somehow translates into an inside job despite the fact those warnings depicted no such thing.

In 1995, the Philippine government revealed a terrorist plot to slam an aircraft into CIA headquarters and yet, 9/11 conspiracy theorist claim those same terrorist and the CIA were working together, when I fact, the CIA had orders to hunt down the terrorist while on the other hand, the terrorist were out to kill Americans.

I might add that years ago, al-Qada was responsible for the killing of CIA agents in Afghanistan, the American embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania, the 1993 WTC 1 bombing and the bombing of the USS Cole, and yet, 9/11 conspiracy theorist translate that into a friendly relationship between al-Qaeda and the United States. The question is, who has been duping 9/11 conspiracy theorist for all of those years?

Not long ago, it was revealed that certain people have been flooding the Truth Movement with disinformation in order to discredit the movement and their efforts has paid off. Now, infighting among 9/11 conspiracy theorist is currently taking place as we speak and they can't even agree on certain events that occurred during 9/11.

I mainly blame Bush and Rice for ignoring those international intelligence warnings that Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda would carry out their 9/11 attack, but our intelligence agencies and even the FAA must share the blame as well.

To sum it up, 9/11 was not an inside job, but one of total ignorance of intelligence warnings flowing in from around the world blaming Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda.

That look on Bush's face was a "Oh Sh.t it happened" look.


Guess no-one ever told him to "be careful what you wish for".

Poor old George. Said no-one ever.

Glad that some have noticed the huge amount of utter lies and contradictions from people who claim to seek truth. However to imply the GWB "didn't orchestrate" the event is to imply that you know who did so please do share. I'm sure he wasn't the only conductor but he was/is the public face of the official story, what with the whole "we never could've imagined this scenario" steaming pile of BS (how about running a drill for that exact event on the day? How about the Intel leading up to 9/11 stating that this is what al-q/other ex-cia operatives wanted to do? How about Operation mutha-f-ing Northwoods?) - it doesn't wash. George Bush and Tony Bliar [sic] should be in prison/afterlife for what they did, let alone those who were pulling the strings of these public-facing puppets.

That might appear to be the case, but there is one factor to consider - intelligence can also be planted. A false flag op for instance isn't just going to happen without first leaving a trail of breadcrumbs leading up to it, little intelligence reports hinting at it, even enlisting the aid of friendly intelligence outfits to also plant those seeds. Look at the suspicious intelligence we have on those 19 Saudi hijackers. Or the suspicious intel (and direct aid) the underwear bomber had.

Also consider intelligence outfits like the CIA aren't one cohesive unit united in purpose, you have all sorts of compartmentalization going on, if a blackop outfit is planting fake intel, a good guy outfit is dutifully reporting it unaware of its duplicity. Maybe Saudi Arabia planted fake intel on those hijackers with it's co-conspirators in the USA or Israel to ensure there was indeed the sort of trail that the good guys in the intelligence community not in on it would expect to see. What tangled webs we weave.

Of course they knew, foreign nations intelligence agencies knew and warned the U.S. The Bush administration did nothing to prevent it and when it happened no one was fired, investigated, or held accountable, but instead promoted.

The intelligence sources came from various independent sources. In 1995, incriminating evidence and documentation were left behind in Manila in the appartment of Ramzi Yousef after a fire sent the terrorist running for cover. Ramzi Yousef, was one of the bomb-making terrorist who bombed WTC 1 in 1993 and whose uncle was the admitted mastermind of 9/11.


Also consider intelligence outfits like the CIA aren't one cohesive unit united in purpose, you have all sorts of compartmentalization going on, if a blackop outfit is planting fake intel, a good guy outfit is dutifully reporting it unaware of its duplicity.


We can rule out the CIA because even the Taliban and other Muslim countries warned the United States along with Israel and Russia, and even from fall-away places such as South America and the Far East. There was no way to plant false evidence on such a massive worldwide scale because it was just a matter of placing the pieces of the puzzle in the right places to depict a picture of what the picture puzzle is all about. For an example, warnings were sent out from flight schools and even from the FBI in Arizona about the suspicious nature of Middle Eastern men and their flight training. Their names were eventually obtained and matched with the names of the hijackers on the passenger manifest on the 9/11 aircraft. We also have their voices on ATC communication tapes, so in that regard, we can tie the 9/11 hijackers to the 19 names obtained by intelligence sources. Case in point:

Hani Hanjour's Commercial Pilot License

Now, let's take a look at the American 77 passenger manifest. Whose name appears at the top of the passenger manifest of American 77?

Hani Hanjour's Name on Passenger Manifest of American 77

Next, we can take a look at the martyr videos and images released by al-Qaeda of the 9/11 hijackers. Whose photo appears on the second row of the 9/11 hijackers.

al-Qaeda Reveal 9/11 Hijackers

We must remember that Osama bin Laden declared war on the United States on multiple occasions.



Al-Qaeda: Declarations & Acts of War

The First Fatwa

In August of 1996, Osama bin Laden issued his first fatwa, a 30-page polemic entitled "Declaration of War Against the Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holy Places," against the United States and Israel, and it was published in a London newspaper called Al Quds al Arabi.

The Second Fatwa

The second fatwa was published on February 23, 1998, in Al Quds al Arabi. Unlike the first fatwa, which was issued by Osama bin Laden alone, this fatwa was signed by Osama bin Laden; Ayman al-Zawahiri, leader of Jihad group in Egypt and al Qaeda second-in-command; Abu-Yasir Rafa'l Ahmad Taha, leader of the Islamic Group; Sheikh Mir Hamzah, secretary of the Jumiat-ut-Ulema-e-Pakistan; and Fazlul Rahman, leader of the Jihad Movement in Bangladesh.

The fatwa reasons that "three facts that are known to everyone" compel war against the United States. First, the United States has been "occupying the lands of Islam in the holiest of places." Second, the "crusader-Zionist alliance" has inflicted great devastation upon the Iraqi people. Third, the United States' goal is "to serve the Jews' petty state and divert attention from its occupation of Jerusalem and murder of Muslims there.

www.heritage.org...


After the 9/11 attack, Osama bin Laden admitted his responsibility for 9/11.



Bin Laden Claims Responsibility for 9/11

Usama bin Laden (search ) made his first televised appearance in more than a year Friday in which he admitted for the first time ordering the Sept. 11 attacks and accused President Bush of "misleading" the American people.

Injecting himself into the campaign four days ahead of the presidential election, bin Laden said the United States can avoid another Sept. 11-style attack if it stops threatening the security of Muslims.

In the portion of the tape that was broadcast, the Al Qaeda leader refrained from directly warning of new attacks, although he said "there are still reasons to repeat what happened."

www.foxnews.com...


So, we have bin Laden's admission and al-Qaeda's martyr videos in addition to worldwide intelligence warnings issued to the United States.



that were indende Maybe Saudi Arabia planted fake intel on those hijackers with it's co-conspirators in the USA or Israel to ensure there was indeed the sort of trail that the good guys in the intelligence community not in on it would expect to see. What tangled webs we weave.


Evidence left behind by Ramzi Yousef in Manila, a known international terrorist and bomber of WTC 1 in 1993, got the ball rolling. Intelligence sources years later were far too independent from one another to have come from one source.

Tenet and Black I never thought they would say anything other than refer to Tenet's memoirs and the Zellikow/Kean Commission.Will this force the illusive Rich Blee himself to come out against W.'s handlers as well?

Have to understand that bureaucracy are notorious for resisting change - most bureaucracy have a "party line"
which must be followed (woo to any who dont) The FBI "party line" was to avoid anything dealing with intelligence
operations or terrorism.

Terrorism expert John O'Neil was forced out of the FBI several months prior to 9/11 for persisting in pushing anti terrorism

Can see this attitude in FBI headquarters ignoring or suppressing reports from agents in Arizona detailing "ARABS"
with radical connections taking flight training

en.wikipedia.org...

Same thing when FBI arrested Moussaoui for wanting to take flight training (and paying cash) without landing
Refused to issue search warrant for his computer which could have exposed links to 9/11 members




Some agents worried that his flight training had violent intentions, so the Minnesota bureau tried to get permission (sending over 70 emails in a week) to search his laptop, but they were turned down.[22] FBI agent Coleen Rowley made an explicit request for permission to search Moussaoui's personal rooms. This request was first denied by her superior, Deputy General Counsel Marion "Spike" Bowman, and later rejected based upon FISA regulations (amended after 9/11 by the USA Patriot Act). Several further search attempts similarly failed.


Bush administration knowing that had only limited time to push agenda was determined to ignore anything
outside .

The famous Presidential Daily Briefing of August 6 made reference to Bin Laden wanting to strike in US - the references to
hijacking state that Bin Laden using hijacking to gain release of Blind Sheik and other extremists. Nothing about
crashing planes into buildings. Other references to embassies and using explosives

www.nytimes.com...

Nothing was specific as to what type of attack and target - which made it easy to dismiss as usual background
chatter

This is not new

The 9/11 commission report even dedicates a entire chapter to the warnings leading up to the attacks that makes mention of the PDP report of "Bin Laden determined to strike at US".

There real issue is that there is not intelligence that exists that we know of that says "19 guys will get on these planes on this date and hit these targets at this time", unless they had some specific knowledge like that then just knowing that Al-Qa'id was ambitious enough to be determined to attack the US is not really enough to have prevented the attacks.

I would highly recommend reading Ghost Wars by Steve Coll as it goes into a lot of detail about these warnings and the bureaucracy that went with them.

Show us irrefutable proof that the government knew when and by what means.

I'll bet you are just going on speculation and hear say.

What a shock.


“To me it remains incomprehensible still. I mean, how is it that you could warn senior people so many times and nothing actually happened? It’s kind of like The Twilight Zone,” laments Tenet. If the case for war crimes against Bush and Cheney isn’t strong enough already, treason can now be added to that list. There is no punishment great enough for what they’ve done to our nation and the world.

Can someone show me where they specifically told Bush about the 9/11 date? All I see is they informed them of AN attack .. without what type or when. Not that the idea is surprising, I just do not see the title confirmed in the story.

Until someone show that Bush knew when and by what method this is all meaningless.

What would you do if you get a report that group 'x' is going to attack the US and it will be big?
Please give us specifics of your plan.


It is common knowledge that at least the Russians warned us of 1)Generally when and 2) By what means.
Russia also allegedly warned the USA about the boston marathon bombers. ignored then too but because the boston bombers were CIA assets . . .older brother was anyway.


I don't know about that one. I don't think that is enough of a reason to ignore something like that. There must be thousands of CIA 'assets'.
yeah there are thousands and if Russia warns us about any our CIA will ignore the warnings knowing the truth is that they are just assets over there trying to destabilize.

In other words, they were aware of intelligence warnings flowing in from around the world that Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda would attack the United States, which effectively discredit the claim that 9/11 was an inside job.

The intelligence warnings were accurate as underlined by the fact that Osama bin Laden admitted that he was responsible for 9/11, and his statement is backed by al-Qaeda's release of 9/11 martyr videos of the 9/11 hijackers.

Bush was in Miami when the planes struck, his security was informed but he wasn't convinced that the towers had been hit, it took something like 20 minutes before he even left the school where he had been talking.

I see that you have confirmed that the WTC Towers were struck by planes, which of course, were American 11 and United 175.
