The road to 9/11 was littered with opportunities that the United States missed to cripple al Qaeda and to avert the attacks of September 11, 2001. Throughout the 1990s small dedicated teams of intelligence analysts and FBI agents toiled in obscurity, as al Qaeda and its associates attacked the World Trade Center in 1993, the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998, and the USS Cole off the coast of Yemen in 2000, along with several smaller “lone wolf” attacks. HISTORY talked to five intelligence and law-enforcement veterans of those investigations about the challenges they faced convincing others in the government of the threat posed by al Qaeda and other Sunni Islamist groups.

One of first big missed opportunities was just losing most of our intelligence collection after the Soviets began to withdraw from Afghanistan in 1988. It was that peace dividend that [President Bill] Clinton wanted, that the American people wanted after the Soviet Union collapsed, so we fired all of our Afghan assets and ramped down our signals-intelligence collection and everything else. If you don’t get the information to follow something closely, then you’re going to be behind the curve, which is what happened.

Everybody needed to have a change of mindset. At the end of the Cold War, the beginning of this international Sunni terrorist organization was something nobody imagined could happen, because ‘Arabs can’t work together, and these guys are a bunch of ragheads who’ve been fighting in the mountains of Afghanistan.’ Except that we knew there was a lot of very well-educated people who had been hanging out together in Afghanistan for 10 years.

Government Terrorist Trackers Before

Looks like the Oopsie Theory will be getting pushed hard this year.Let's get this straight: "The best trained,most technologically advanced intelligence community in the world." simply let this slip between the cracks? No,they didn't they simply chose to look the other way while the Saudis and other regimes would send these guys away so they could be someone else's problem.Are we still supposed to believe that they lost track of 2 of them after that summit?

I believe interests in the Middle East and Middle Eastern governments pulled political favors from US officials to get the terrorists in. That is part of the 9/11 coverup. Not the US government was the mastermind of 9/11. And there is definitely no evidence of CD at the WTC.

Look at the stuff AE 9/11 Truth, Jones, and Gage have ignored. Or concocted to stay relevant with their target group.

The towers fell at the rate of free fall. Lie. The towers fell at 2/3rds the rate of free fall. The core columns fell at 40 percent the rate of free fall.

The Towers had to fall through the path of greatest resistance for a symmetrical collapse. Lie. Large number and great lengths of core columns were left standing for whole seconds after the complete collapse of the floor system.

Jones has never pushed his results for burning the WTC dust in an inert atmosphere to prove the presence of self sustaining thermite.

Fizzle no flash bombs. Thermite paint. Thermite ceiling tiles.

The truth movement ignoring the steel was not sent stright to China. The steel and ruble went to lay down yards for hand examination and searching of human remains, personal effects, and evidence.

I wish the truth movement would stop pushing false narratives void of credibility, and would stop being a roadblock to truth.
