I searched but didn't find...i didn't search too hard. Found this interesting compilation on matters predating the 9/11, that were taking place and
are now disclosed through FOIA.
It's a bit of a read, so will is needed. I find it interesting because it's backed up by sources at the bottom. The article is less than 2 years old,
so it's possible it's been discussed. Take the source for what you want, quotations are referenced.
U.S. government documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and recently posted on the website of the George Washington
University National Security Archive shed some additional light on talks with the Taliban prior to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001,
including with regard to the repeated Taliban offers to hand over Osama bin Laden, and the role of Pakistan before and after the attacks
Michael Malinowski, a State Department official involved in the talks, acknowledged, “I would say, ‘Hey, give up bin Laden,’ and they would say,
‘No…. Show us the evidence’”, a request U.S. officials deemed unreasonable
Indeed it is unreasonable to ask for proof in a democratic society. I think they are making it a rule as we speak. /end sarc
Another newly disclosed document shows that two days after the 9/11 attacks Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf was told “bluntly” that “There
was no inclination in Washington to engage in a dialog with the Taliban.” The U.S. was already prepared for military action and “believed strongly
that the Taliban are harboring the terrorists responsible for the September 11 attacks.” The U.S. was “fairly sure” that bin Laden “and his Al
Qida network of terrorists” were guilty
That's what I call evidence....if you don't come to democracy, democracy will come to you.
Anyway...here is the link
Your much appreciated comments....
