The Bush administration has blocked the public release of the full, classified version of the report for more than five months, much to the frustration of former commission members who say it provides a critical understanding of the failures of the civil aviation system. The report says that the F.A.A. received 52 intelligence reports from their security branch that mentioned Bin Laden or Al Qaeda from April to Sept. 10, 2001. That represented half of all the intelligence summaries in that time.

NEW YORK - Federal Aviation Administration officials received 52 warnings prior to Sept. 11, 2001, from their own security experts about potential al-Qaida attacks, including some that mentioned airline hijackings or suicide attacks, The New York Times reported.

The Times said in Thursday editions that a previously undisclosed report by the 9/11 commission that investigated the suicide airliner attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon detailed warnings given to FAA leaders from April to Sept. 10, 2001, about the radical Islamic terrorist group and its leader, Osama bin Laden.

While the heavily censored 'unclassified' report points the finger at the FAA for failing to respond with effective security measures, I have to wonder why the intelligence agencies that issued the warnings aren't being held responsible.

Surely it's not good enough just to pass on a warning and hope the target can defend itself, aren't these agencies are supposed to be actively protecting us?

Having read the document I can safely say they placed blame all around. By far the most interesting thing is seeing Tenet get crap from everyone, but in the report he really seemed the hero, constantly pestering Bush and especially Clinton to do something about Osama. Clinton was 8 hours from getting him, but pulled out.

The problems with the FAA, CIA, FBI, and military were all painfully obvious in the report. The run-through of the day stated that perfectly.

Hmmmm. Apparently the delay strategy worked.

Nobody seems to be terribly interested in this report any more.



BTW - good coverage. IMO - It's still important to have things like this in the archives.

Of course people who care are interested in the report.

It becomes clearer each day, with the release of each piece of previously stonewalled incriminating evidence, how to define the communication lines and lay responsibility for negligence and complicity in the 9/11 attacks where it belongs.

Still no American administration official has been held to account for the worst attck in history on US soil - only some initially misidentified and dead hijackers, and (then suddenly) Osama Bin Laden, whom the administration had "no idea" would use aircraft as weapons and who has still not been brought to justice by the posse organised by the "Commander In Chief".

People who say to leave it alone are people who don't care for the truth at all. Is that being complicit, forgiving or stupid?
