The 9/11 attacks were the most valuable incident that has happened to Washington DC since Pearl Harbor.

It turned a population from anti-war to pro-war in under 2 hours, and it led to the doubling of military and security budgets, unlimited war that still rages, and a complete lack of accountability for war crimes and related corporate crimes.

At the time, it was revealed right in the newspapers, almost daily, that the White House lied about everything. They told the truth about nothing and they covered up every bit of data they could manage.

In the spirit of combatting the public’s immense ignorance, I’ll be posting damning facts in a recurring series.

 


Independent UK:

Bush team tried to suppress pre-9/11 report into al-Qa’ida

FEDERAL OFFICIALS were repeatedly warned in the months before the 11 September 2001 terror attacks that Osama bin Laden and al-Qa’ida were planning aircraft hijackings and suicide attacks, according to a new report that the Bush administration has been suppressing.Critics say the new information undermines the government’s claim that intelligence about al-Qa’ida’s ambitions was “historical” in nature.

The independent commission investigating the attacks on New York and Washington concluded that while officials at the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) did receive warnings, they were “lulled into a false sense of security”. As a result, “intelligence that indicated a real and growing threat leading up to 9/11 did not stimulate significant increases in security procedures”.

The report, withheld from the public for months, says the FAA was primarily focused on the likelihood of an incident overseas. However, in spring 2001, it warned US airports that if “the intent of the hijacker is not to exchange hostages for prisoners but to commit suicide in a spectacular explosion, a domestic hijacking would probably be preferable”.
