From the 9/11 report, reported by the Washington Post, remember folks the WAPO is only reporting what is found in the 9/11 report not doing investigative reporting. It seems that a lot of folk were asleep at the wheel in the summer preceding 9/11, I know Clinton did not respond to the Cole incident correctly, but during this time there seems to be no excuse 52 warnings is a pretty big number...the conspiracy theorists are going to have a field day with this one, it is from '05, but still pretty relevant in light of other stuff going on right now, i.e. Judith Miller being told something was going to happen. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A13203-2005Feb10.html Report Says FAA Got 52 Warnings Before 9/11 Associated Press Friday, February 11, 2005; Page A02 The Federal Aviation Administration received repeated warnings in the months before Sept. 11, 2001, that al Qaeda hoped to attack airlines, according to a previously undisclosed report by the commission that investigated the terrorist attacks. The report detailed 52 such warnings to FAA leaders between April 1 and Sept. 10, 2001, about the terrorist organization and its leader, Osama bin Laden. The commission report, written last August, said five security warnings mentioned al Qaeda's training for hijackings and two reports concerned suicide operations not connected to aviation. None of the warnings specified what would happen on Sept. 11. FAA spokeswoman Laura Brown said the agency received intelligence from other agencies, which it passed on to airlines and airports. But "we had no specific information about means or methods that would have enabled us to tailor any countermeasures," she said.
