This list is from a website i visit daily, called Listverse. No doubt a few of you are familiar with this brilliant website.

I think sometimes, if the list creators are also members of ATS, the contributors to Listverse add some great content, much like ATS


Im going to copy the list, remember - I didnt create this my self all, i thought it would fit nicely with ATS so i needed to share it.

10 People Whose Warnings Went Unheeded


In Greek mythology, Cassandra was the daughter of the King of Troy. She was so beautiful that the God Apollo granted her the gift of seeing the future, prophecy. When Cassandra spurned Apollo’s love, he put a curse on her – that no one would believe any of her predictions. Cassandra was thus an epic and tragic figure – granted a powerful ability, yet powerless to use it. Throughout history there have been many Cassandra-type figures, people who predicted the coming of terrible tragedies and disasters, but whose warnings were ignored. These people were not gods and were not using special powers of prophecy. They were people who had a deep understanding of the realities of a situation and tried to warn others. In each case, others failed to listen to their warnings, and tragedies that might have been averted were not. Here are ten examples of people who tried to warn others, but whose warnings went unheeded.


10 Adlai Stevenson



On October 24, 1963, less than a month before President John F Kennedy was scheduled to go to Dallas as part of a campaign swing through the critical electoral state of Texas, Kennedy’s UN Ambassador Adlai Stevenson went to Dallas to speak at Dallas Memorial Auditorium to mark U.N. Day. Many people in Dallas openly and violently hated the United Nations, Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren, and the Kennedys. Their hatred was so intense that they persuaded Governor John Connally to declare the day before Stevenson’s visit “US Day” out of protest. When Stevenson arrived at the auditorium there were thousands of picketers outside, and many inside, to protest him and the UN (and the Kennedy Administration).

Ditto!

Some of these I knew, the rest I am dying to know about.

Right now I have to get ready to go to work so I can sell everyone high fructose genetically modified corn syrup and aspartame. Meh! I cringe every time I see someone buying this poison.

S+F as well

You forgot to add #11. Chicken Little. He warned all the other animals that the sky was falling, and look what happened.

Excellent stuff, There has to be a big story behind what John O'Neil had discovered, I don't mean the trampling of Washington egos, but the background to the people he was dealing with in foreign intelligence and at home. For instance, Tenet was able to say right away over 9/11 breakfast where the horror had come from, as if in a speculating way, but really, (IMO) he knew, and I don't think there is any doubt about that. Just that alone all makes 9/11 so weird in so many ways.
