A Good American tells the story of the best code-breaker the USA ever had and how he and a small team within NSA created a surveillance tool that could pick up any electronic signal on earth, filter it for targets and render results in real-time while keeping the privacy as demanded by the US constitution. The tool was perfect - except for one thing: it was way too cheap. Therefor NSA leadership, who had fallen into the hands of industry, dumped it - three weeks prior to 9/11. In a secret test-run of the program against the pre-9/11-NSA database in early 2002 the program immediately found the terrorists. This is the story of former Technical director of NSA, Bill Binney, and a program called ThinThread.

So they had tech and personnel to watch lead up of 911 and the actual event but failed to use this advantage. Then they use the tech against US citizens?!?! Sounds like a Tom Clancy novel.
Wonder if anyone will get subpoenaed now? Nah..
And I raise another finger to the Bush administration(Cabal), particularly Cheney, Rummy, Wolfowitz, Bremer, Rove and Rice!
