When O'Neill briefly traveled back to New York for Thanksgiving, Bodine denied his re-entry visa, blocking O'Neill from returning to Yemen to continue the investigation on the USS Cole bombing. Frontline cited sources as saying that "O'Neill's removal from the scene in Yemen may have seriously limited the Cole investigation," and some have speculated that if Bodine had not blocked O'Neill's return, the September 11 plot might have been foiled
9/11 Yemen Ambassador Barbara Bodine Blocked John O'Neill's USS Cole InvestigationIn 2001-2002, Barbara Bodine was US ambassador to Yemen. It is confirmed, that in 2001, she forbade former FBI Anti-Terror specialist John ONeill and his team of "so- called Rambos" (as the Yemeni authorities called them) from reentering Yemen to investigate on terror ties. In August 2001, O'Neill resigned in frustration and took up a new job as head of security at the World Trade Centre. He died in the September 11th attack. The first FBI agents enter Yemen two days after the bombing of the USS Cole in an attempt to discover who was responsible. However, the main part of the team initially gets stuck in Germany because they do not have permission to enter Yemen and they are then unable to accomplish much due to restrictions placed on them and tensions between lead investigator John O'Neill and US Ambassador to Yemen Barbara Bodine. All but about 50 investigators are forced to leave by the end of October. O'Neill's boss Barry Mawn visits to assess the situation. [Miller, Stone, and Mitchell, 2002, pp. 237; New Yorker, 1/14/2002; Sunday Times (London), 2/3/2002; New Yorker, 7/10/2006 ] Mawn will later comment, "It became clear [Bodine] simply hated his guts." After a ten day investigation, he concludes O'Neill is doing a fine job, tells Bodine that she is O'Neill's "only detractor," and refuses her request to recall him. [Wright, 2006, pp. 32] But O'Neill and much of his team are pressured to leave by late November and Bodine will not give him permission to return any time
Bodine was later quoted as saying;
"Too much is being made of John O'Neill's being in Yemen or not," "John O'Neill did not discover Al Qaeda. He did not discover Osama bin Laden. So the idea that John or his people or the F.B.I. were somehow barred from doing their job is insulting to the U.S. government, which was working on Al Qaeda before John ever showed up. This is all my embassy did for ten months. The fact that not every single thing John O'Neill asked for was appropriate or possible does not mean that we did not support the investigation."
Out of the 2,780 victims of the WTC only 12 bodies were found physically intact, John O'Neil was one of those rare 12 bodies that were identifiable by sight. John's body was found at the bottom of a stairwell in the south tower on Sept 22nd where he had supposedly lain for 11 days, he was formally identified by Jerome Hauer.
Former White House director for counterterrorism Richard Clarke has accused former CIA Director George Tenet of denying him and others access to intelligence that could have thwarted the attack on the Pentagon on 9/11. One would think that this would be a front page story, but of course for the most part it is not.
If Tenet did do this then it was at least gross dereliction of duty claims Ray McGovern a former CIA analyst.In an interview aired on Aug. 11 on a local PBS affiliate in Colorado, Clarke charges that Tenet and two other senior CIA officials, Cofer Black and Richard Blee, deliberately withheld information about two of the hijackers of American Airlines Flight 77 - al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar. The two had entered the United States more than a year before the 9/11 attacks.
Witholding intelligence on 2 of the 9/11 hijackers is very surprising. Richard Clarke concluded that he should have received information from CIA about al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar, "unless somebody intervened to stop the normal automatic distribution". Given that the two turned out to be part of the 9/11 terror team such an act verges on being criminal.
Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld warned that it will only be a matter of time before America endures another terrorist attack if Congress ends up blaming the defense budget for this country’s red ink woes. “The Department of Defense is not what’s causing the debt and the deficit. It’s the entitlement programs,” he told HUMAN EVENTS in an exclusive interview. “If we make that mistake, we’re doomed to suffer another attack of some kind, and our intelligence will be less strong and less effective.”

On Henry Kissinger: THE MUSH-KANGER CONNECTION "Because Henry Kissinger is a liar and a criminal, he will criminally lie
about the 9-11 attacks to hide the secret identities of real hijackers and to cover up the high crimes committed by unknown terrorists on 11 September 2001.
Henry Kissinger is known as Henry Kanger in South Asia. Ask anyone from Pakistan, India, or Bangladesh, who speaks the Punjabi
or Urdu language, to tell you what 'Kanger' means in Punjabi or Urdu. In September 2000 at The Roosevelt Hotel in New York City,
Kissinger held a top secret meeting with 'Pakistani' General Pervez Musharraf, a corrupt tyrant, military dictator and human rights
abuser illegally imposed on the 150 millionstrong Pakistani nation by the Clinton-Bush regimes.
A bit of background: In 1994, Bill Kristol and John Podhoretz, with financing from Rupert Murdoch, established the Weekly Standard magazine. In 1997, along with Robert Kagan, Kristol founded the Project for a New American Century, a neoconservative movement that openly advocated military action in Iraq to "protect our vital interests in the Gulf" as early as 1998. There is no doubt that the man, the magazine, and PNAC are inexorably intertwined.
