Slashdot, the hugely popular technology site with a long history of opposition to 9/11 truth topics, has reported on Kevin Fenton’s discovery of the identity of Richard Blee, the CIA manager in charge of the unit where agents deliberately withheld information about two 9/11 hijackers from the CIA.
Although the story of the CIA’s actions in the run-up to 9/11 is complicated, at a fairly early point in any examination of them it becomes clear the agency committed multiple failures, and that these failures enabled the attacks to go forward. The key issue that remains in dispute ten years on is whether these “failures” were deliberate or simply the product of overwork and incompetence. Making an informed judgment means taking the time to look at all the failures, put them in order, and analyze what it all means.
Following the airing of allegations by former counterterrorism “czar” Richard Clarke that the CIA deliberately withheld from him information about Pentagon hijackers Khalid Almihdhar and Nawaf Alhazmi, former CIA director George Tenet, former CIA Counterterrorist Center chief Cofer Black and Richard Blee, a mid-level agency official who occupied two key counterterrorist positions before 9/11, have […]
Wilshire’s role in the deliberate withholding of information from the FBI about Pentagon hijackers Khalid Almihdhar and Nawaf Alhazmi makes his presence in the Moussaoui case alarming. This case was a significant stimulus for the reform of the US intelligence community. Without knowing what actually happened and why, we have no way of judging whether those reforms were warranted and appropriate. Perhaps it would have been better to fire those who performed badly, instead of promoting them.
The NSA failed to pass on information about the hijackers, perhaps deliberately to aid CIA machinations, and has not even stated publicly whether and how it investigated this failure, let alone what the conclusions of such inquiry might be. Nevertheless, with remarkable speed it used its failure as a justification for massive new powers. This is just one of the legacies of 9/11.
Kevin Fenton is the author of the new book, Disconnecting The Dots: How 9/11 Was Allowed To Happen. In this exclusive interview for 9/11 Truth News, Fenton talks about his work researching 9/11 and his thoughts on achieving accountability for the crimes of that day.
You often hear me say that you should read the works of Kevin Fenton with regards to 9/11. Here is my collection of his works. He was very helpful to me with regards to my “Who Is?” list. He wrote several of the introductions for it. He has also been a major contributor to the Complete 9/11 Timeline. He supposedly has a book coming out called “Disconnecting The Dots: How CIA and FBI officials helped enable 9/11 and evaded government investigation,” and last I heard, it was still coming out, but I don’t know when unfortunately.
