Two months before 9/11:

The highest law enforcement official in the nation told the FBI head he did not want to discuss domestic terrorism threats anymore.

Did Ashcroft brush off terror warnings?

“NBC exclusive: 9/11 commission interviews FBI officials who contradict Ashcroft testimony”

At issue is a July 5, 2001, meeting between Ashcroft and acting FBI Director Tom Pickard. That month, the threat of an al-Qaida attack was so high, the White House summoned the FBI and domestic agencies, and warned them to be on alert .

Yet, Pickard testified to the 9/11 commission that when he tried to brief Ashcroft just a week later, on July 12, about the terror threat inside the United States, he got the brush-off.

“Mr. Ashcroft told you that he did not want to hear about this anymore,” Democratic commission member Richard Ben-Veniste asked on April 13. “Is that correct?”

That is correct,” Pickard replied.
