Oh yes I read through all of it and it happens to leave out some important events. Like for example no mention of the first attack on the WTC 9-11 was
not the first time im sure you know. But thats a common tactic leave out parts that dont help your theory I cant blame him or her.
Do you know anything about this event, besides a bomb went off an al Qaeda was blamed?
In the course of the trial it was revealed that the FBI had an informant, an Egyptian man named Emad Salem, a former army officer. Salem claims to
have informed the FBI of the plot to bomb the towers as early as February 6, 1992. Salem's role as informant allowed the FBI to quickly pinpoint the
conspirators out of the hundreds of possible suspects.
Salem, initially believing that this was to be a sting operation, claimed that the FBI's original plan was for Salem to supply the conspirators with
a harmless powder instead of actual explosive to build their bomb, but that the FBI chose to use him for other purposes instead. He substantiated
his claims with hundreds of hours of secretly-recorded conversations with his FBI handlers, made during discussions held after the bombings. They are
currrently in possession of the FBI.
Salem said he wished to complain to FBI headquarters in Washington about the failure to prevent the bombing despite foreknowledge, but was dissuaded
from doing so by the New York FBI office. The FBI has never contradicted Salem's account.
. (Emphasis mine.)
What a shame that you can't even point to the 1993 bombing without there being evidence of government foul.
And btw, there was never any evidence provided that al Qaeda did it, either. But then, that's a common tactic to leave out parts that don't help
your theory. I can't blame you.
Edited to add emphasis to the external quote, so you wouldn't miss that part.
