“On Aug. 6, 2001, President George W. Bush received a classified review of the threats posed by Osama bin Laden and his terrorist network, Al Qaeda. That morning’s “presidential daily brief” — the top-secret document prepared by America’s intelligence agencies — featured the now-infamous heading: “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” A few weeks later, on 9/11, Al Qaeda accomplished that goal.”

NY Times reporter: Bush White House didn’t listen to 9/11 warnings
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505263_162-57510158/ny-times-reporter-bush-white-house-didnt-listen-to-9-11-warnings/

“CBS News spoke with Eichenwald Monday. He said, “What I’ve been able to see are the presidential daily briefs before August 6 of 2001. And they’re horrific, and they are – our reports are ‘an attack is coming,’ ‘there are going to be mass casualties.’ The worst of them, the Pentagon, the neo-conservatives at the Pentagon, as the CIA was coming in saying, ‘al-Qaeda’s going to attack,’ said, ‘Oh, this is just a false flag operation. Bin laden is trying to take our attention off of the real threat, Iraq.’ And so there are presidential daily briefs that are literally saying, ‘No they’re wrong, this isn’t fake, it’s real.'”

Key military players involved in the exercise also included personnel from the 1st Air Force battalion, the U.S. National Guard, the U.S. Reserve forces, and the U.S. Navy.”

9/11 “PRE WARNINGS”

They Tried to Warn Us: Foreign Intelligence Warnings Before 9/11
http://www.historycommons.org/essay.jsp?article=essaytheytriedtowarnus

“The Congressional Joint Inquiry into 9-11 is now finished, but the findings that have been released fail to mention any warnings from foreign governments. The US mainstream media also has paid little attention to warnings from foreign governments.

Yet there were so many warnings—from both our friends and enemies alike—often specifically suggesting the targets or method of attack. In at least one case, the warnings actually mentioned hijackers by name. This type of communication between intelligence agencies normally occurs in secret, so one can only wonder what additional warnings or details were provided to us that have never been made public.

No US publication has ever put all the various foreign government warnings in one place; even Internet skeptics of Bush have paid scant attention to this issue. Here, for the first time, is such a list of warnings.”

Secretary Rumsfeld Interview with Parade Magazine

Presenter: Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld
October 12, 2001
http://www.defense.gov/transcripts/transcript.aspx?TranscriptID=3845

“Q: This is a question that’s been asked by many Americans, but especially by the widows of September 11th. How were we so asleep at the switch? How did a war targeting civilians arrive on our homeland with seemingly no warning?

Rumsfeld: There were lots of warnings. The intelligence information that we get, it sometimes runs into the hundreds of alerts or pieces of intelligence a week. One looks at the worldwide, it’s thousands. And the task is to sort through it and see what you can find. And as you find things, the law enforcement officials who have the responsibility to deal with that type of thing — the FBI at the federal level, and although it is not, it’s an investigative service as opposed to a police force, it’s not a federal police force, as you know. But the state and local law enforcement officials have the responsibility for dealing with those kinds of issues.”

“ISRAELI intelligence officials say that they warned their counterparts in the United States last month that large-scale terrorist attacks on highly visible targets on the American mainland were imminent.

The 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centre’s twin towers and the Pentagon were humiliating blows to the intelligence services, which failed to foresee them, and to the defence forces of the most powerful nation in the world, which failed to deflect them.
The Telegraph has learnt that two senior experts with Mossad, the Israeli military intelligence service, were sent to Washington in August to alert the CIA and FBI to the existence of a cell of as many of 200 terrorists said to be preparing a big operation.”

CONCLUSION

There were MANY “early warnings” given to the USG that were ignored by US intelligence. These reports only help make the public believe that OBL was a threat and to sell the original cover story to the world.

The “Early warnings” in a way promotes a LIHOP scenario. But we know they didn’t “LET IT HAPPEN”, they MADE IT HAPPEN!

Early Al Qaeda warnings = Got caught with pants down!
