The United States of America have a formidable amount of intellegence and security agencies. They have the CIA, the FBI, The DIA, The NRO, The NSA,
the Secret Service. These particular agencies use Echelon, which monitors electronic communication; Tempest, a technology that can show what a person
has on their computer screen a mile away; Carnivore, which intercepts email; Satalites that allegedly have a resolution of four inches, and loads of
other spy technologies we haven't even got wind about. With all of those resources, all of the hi-tech wizardry, all of the intelligence agencies,
The U.S.A. didn't even have the foggiest idea of a terrorist attack, never mind the hijacking of four airliners, and crashing them into famous
landmarks as they did on the 11th of September 2001.
It just makes me wonder. How could the U.S. government not know there was an attack coming? Has their vast intelligence network become
complacent...nay, completely imcompetant not to pick up on the attacks? Did the terrorists not use any sort of electronic communication? Phones,
I argue that the intelligence community had some idea of the attacks. It'd probebly be bad press if they admitted they had a tip off but they didn't
take it seriously enough to warrent further investigation. Or perhaps...well, it could be more sinister if ya wanted it to be.
Anyone wanting to provide some insight?
