As one the the biggest militaty contractor both in America and in the world, Raytheon develloped and introduced the very first remotely controlled and pilot-less Airliner just a couple of months before 9-11according to an August 2001 article in the www.usatoday.com..." target="_blank" class="postlink">USA Today (by the way, the said article may have been removed from the USA Today archives as of one month ago, for a free copy contact email@example.com )
Interestingly enough, on 9-11 Raytheon lost five of their high ranking employees. As details of the passengers on the four hijacked flights emerge, some are shown to have curious connections to the defense company Raytheon, and possibly its Global Hawk pilotless aircraft program (see 1998 (D) and August 2001).
A NATION CHALLENGED: THE INQUIRY; Experts See F.B.I. Missteps Hampering Anthrax Inquiry
The CIA admits that it did not inform the bureau that after the Malaysia meetings ended, it tracked Almidhar and Alhazmi to Los Angeles. The CIA further admits that it failed to warn the INS or the State Department, and as a result, the men's names were not added to a terrorist watch list.
Not until June 11, 2001 did the CIA sit down with those in charge of the Cole investigation at the New York office and show them some of the photos taken at the Malaysia meeting. They asked for help in identifying the men. (John O'Neill was not at that meeting.) A high-ranking FBI official at this meeting told FRONTLINE that when they asked the CIA representatives for more information about Almidhar and Alhazmi -- men the FBI had until then never heard of -- they were told they were not cleared to know more. It was an astonishing meeting -- reportedly, it turned into a shouting match.
Just two weeks, TWO WEEKS, prior to the attack, O'Neill had left his job with the FBI. O'Neill had quit because he believed that the Bush administration had stymied the intelligence agency's investigations on terrorism. O'Neill charged that it had done so even as it bargained with the Taliban on handing over of Osama bin Laden in exchange for political recognition and economic aid. In the ultimate irony, O'Neill had gone public with these charges at the same time that he was leaving the FBI to become the head of security at the World Trade Center.
Don't forget that the whitehouse staff started taking cipro a full week before the first anthrax letters were even put in the mail, this shows prior knowledge. They started taking cipro on 9/11 and the first letters were postmarked 9/18.
But lets not forget that the FBI should have known what was in the bomb, before it even went off since it seems they were involved in it up to their necks. Here is a news clip about how the FBI had foreknowledge of the bombing. It's two minutes and 10 sec.

Maybe there is a good reason the mainstream media have fallen in line and started reporting on such earth shattering events like what Britney Spears spends her money on, rather than the real events and real questions surounding 911.

Its called taking appropriate precautions - nobody knew what was going
on or what was cming next.
Have to understand that the attacks on WTC/Pentagon were considered
start of massive terrorist campaign.
9/11 was in my firehouse in NJ standing by (in case needed in NYC and
backing up neighboring city who had day shift at WTC site fighting fires
in World Financial Center).
Remember that the terrorists who planted truck bomb in garage
in 1993 loaded it with cyanide to create toxic smoke to poison the
So you are a fireman but you do not understand that controlled demolitions brought down the twin towers and WTC7?
