Leak: U.S. knew of Sept. 11 plans



WASHINGTON, April 2 (UPI) -- The U.S. administration knew of al-Qaida plans to target buildings with planes months before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, a former FBI translator claims.

Sibel Edmonds, a former translator for the FBI with top-secret security clearance says she spent three hours giving testimony to the panel investigating the attacks, and told Britain's Independent Friday information was circulating within the FBI in the spring and summer of 2001 an attack using aircraft was months away and the terrorists were in place.

She rejected national security adviser Condoleezza Rice's claim there was no such knowledge as "an outrageous lie."

The newspaper said the Bush administration has sought to silence her and has obtained a gag order from a court by citing the rarely used "state secrets privilege."

The 33-year-old a Turkish-American woman who speaks Azerbaijani, Farsi, Turkish and English said she gave her evidence in Washington Feb. 11.

"I gave (the commission) details of specific investigation files, the specific dates, specific target information, specific managers in charge of the investigation. I gave them everything so that they could go back and follow up. This is not hearsay. These are things that are documented. These things can be established very easily."

What is pissing me off, is I'm going to the washingtontimes.com frontpage and there's no mention of this on there (or if it is, it's really obscure).

Yeah it sucks that those soldiers got mutilated, and it's great to see L. Paul Bremer standing at a podium with a dejected look on his face. But this is the conspiracy to end all conspiracies and it's not even worth the front page?

Could you imagine the social unrest that would be caused if it were proclaimed in large text on the front page of every major newspaper that the government turned a blind eye to the information that they had gathered concerning the forthcoming events of Sept. 11th? No...it won't happen, the shepherds must control their sheep, and watch what they feed them.

I was thinking that, but didn't want to spell it out. It is about time though, I was thinking something a little retro even, maybe Louis XVI style? I always thought the guillotine provided a nice touch.

Looking further, I can't find a link to this article anywhere on the site now.

Not in the breaking news category, and not in the politics category.

WHAT A FARCE.

Or maybe this was planned by the times you know, get the article online for a while so it can circulate. Because you know they WERE threatened to take it down...

Let's give the times some credit, they're a pretty leftist outfit.

The link at the top of this page works to get the article page up.

I know. We can still go see it if we want to, but what about the 10,000 people who go to the times every minute or so.

That's what I'm talking about.

I realized what you were saying after I went to the website, seems impossible to find at this point.

Edit: Maybe The Rhino can help us find it.
