WAR: New Report Says US Had Dozens of Pre 9/11 Warnings

Five pre-9/11 briefings specifically mentioned al-Qaida's capability for hijackings, according to excerpts from a new report. The previously undesclosed report by the 9/11 Commission says that aviation officials were purposely lulled into feeling of false security. The Bush administration has blocked the release of the full report.
In the months before the Sept. 11 attacks, federal aviation officials reviewed dozens of intelligence reports that warned about Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda, some of which specifically discussed airline hijackings and suicide operations, according to a previously undisclosed report from the 9/11 commission.

The Bush administration has blocked the public release of the full, classified version of the report for more than five months, officials said, much to the frustration of former commission members who say it provides a critical understanding of the failures of the civil aviation system.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

This report needs to be fully disclosed. It is a disservice to all Americans when their safety could be increased by the valuable information these sections of the 9/11 Commission's report can provide. Otherwise, the Bush administration should indicate exactly why they do not want the information in the report disclosed.

The Federal Aviation Administration received 52 intelligence reports on al-Qaeda between April and September.

The previously undisclosed report by the commission that investigated the 2001 attacks said the new threats did not lead to increased security.

But the FAA said the information could not have helped prevent the attacks.

Spokeswoman Laura Brown said: "We had no specific information about means or methods that would have enabled us to tailor any counter-measures."

" Intelligence that indicated a real and growing threat leading up to 11 September did not stimulate significant increases in security procedures",
said Carol Ashley.

what's unfortunate for most of us, is that this happened not three or four years ago, but rather three or four LIGHT-YEARS ago. the thing with heat is, the speed of the 'molecules'. in our current, web/sattelite/cell/land-line/broadcast enviroment, the 'molecules' travel at light speed.
if we REALLY want to get a fair system of government back, we must only blink at today's patterns, and rather, focus to construct tomorrow in our mind's eye.

I listened to an eye-opening interview with FBI agent Coleen Rowley on the bbc the other day. (Listen here)

She believes that, contrary to the official line, 9/11 could have been averted (or at the very least delayed and/or partially averted) by simply strengthening cockpit doors. And if she had been taken seriously in the first place, there would have been plenty of time to get that done.

The 'I told you so' line must be miles upon miles long by now. Both of these stories (the one within the main story also) are just shaking. Is there anything (other than an election) that Bushco can pull off and get national news hammers on him?

So very, very sad.

Yes, there have been rumors about portions of the 9/11 Report "undisclosed". But now report commissioners are coming forward in hopes that those important government-sensored parts can be used to their full advantage.

The sensoring in itself is disturbing let alone the inablility to review the important insights the 9/11 Commission has.
