Skip to comments.Not just one missed terrorist’s call, Attorney General Mukasey

We knew that there had been a call from someplace that was known to be a safe house in Afghanistan and we knew that it came to the United States. We didnt know precisely where it went. Weve got 3,000 people who went to work that day, and didnt come home, to show for that. Attorney General Michael Mukasey, speaking last week in Nancy Pelosis hometown.
AG Michael Mukasey revealed new, stunning information: he now knows precisely to whom that call was made. As 13 of the 15 muscle hijackers came late and knew little, that call undoubtedly was to one of only seven men: Zacarias Moussaoui; the two members of al-Qaeda muscle hijackers who the CIA knew, in March 2000, had entered the United States two months prior, Khalid al Mihdhar and Nawaf al Hazmi; or one of the four hijacker pilots, Hani Hanjour, Marwan al Shehhi, Ziad Jarrah, and Mohamed Atta. All seven trained to fly after they arrived here. As they entered America alone or in pairs and initially moved and operated independently, each separately made updates to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed via a common communications network. In addition, with Moussaoui excluded, literally hundreds of communications took place between the remaining six.
Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal quoted Mukasy citing One Missed Call had only we been listening. Yet the 9/11 Commission found that communications sufficient to enable planning and direction of the operatives and those who would be helping them was a critical element in the successful attack. What follows are obvious examples of the terrorists communications, to illustrate the many dots uncollected before 3,000 died.

There were literally hundreds of communications between the 9/11 plotters that our intelligence agencies could have collected and would have foiled the plot.
I read that on DU, so it must be true.
Whatever happened with the hours/weeks/years worth of telephone conversations that we were behind on translating? Or did that get pulled along with the fence?
I suspect they’ve since been translated and, hopefully, whatever intelligence within them put to good use.
Since it is the intention of Pelosi, Reid, OsamaObama and Hildabeast to prevent intercepting any future terrorist chatter, we won't have to wring our hands over calls collected, but not evaluated - only on how many body bags we need to have in inventory.
What are “al-Qaeda muscle hijackers”?
They had three or four guys in each plane to subdue the passengers.
