An Army intelligence officer has stated that Military Intelligence tried to contact the FBI in 2000 about a terrorist cell in the US that contained
Mohammed Atta and a few of the others that were involved in the attacks of 9/11, but apparently the military refused to let them talk.
A military intelligence team repeatedly contacted the F.B.I. in 2000 to warn about the existence of an American-based terrorist cell that included
the ringleader of the Sept. 11 attacks, according to a veteran Army intelligence officer who said he had now decided to risk his career by discussing
the information publicly.
The officer, Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, said military lawyers later blocked the team from sharing any of its information with the bureau.
Colonel Shaffer said in an interview on Monday night that the small, highly classified intelligence program, known as Able Danger, had identified the
terrorist ringleader, Mohamed Atta, and three other future hijackers by name by mid-2000, and tried to arrange a meeting that summer with agents of
the Washington field office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to share its information.

Something must be amiss with the issues of 9/11 lately, because a lot of finger pointing has been going on.
I also found another article where the State Department warned US Officials about Osama bin Laden in 1996.
It seems that a lot of things are starting to come to light on who really knew what about 9/11.
