an interesting article REUTERS

Apperently the CIA is sick of getting picked on and blamed for everything:
Quote:
The CIA defended itself against criticism in the Sept. 11 commission report on Thursday and said it had warned of the possibility of terrorists using hijacked planes before the 2001 attacks took place. 'CIA regularly reported on threats to civil aviation including hijacking,' a CIA official said on condition of anonymity to a group of reporters before the report's release."

Quote:
The official said the CIA in 1999 had provided the Federal Aviation Administration with language to use in briefing U.S. airline officials that read: 'Osama bin Laden remains interested in targeting U.S. interests including on U.S. territory. He is well prepared to consider kidnappings and hijackings as well as bombings.'"

"'All of those warnings plus other intelligence reports of a similar nature through that period were provided in time to do something about it. It wasn't too late. The industry could have taken countermeasures and so forth. So we were on time and on target with that,' he said."

I forsee a slew of books coming out from agents who are tired of the buck being passed their way . . .
