Afghanistan wasn't even listed as an official 'terrorist harboring country' - even after the FIRST WTC bombing - what's wrong in that picture????

Opium poppies (heroin) have their influence, I guess.

Don't forget the FAA airport security manipulations to enable the attacks. The FAA failings were reported to everyone from the White House on down. Those in the FAA who took airport or FAA facility security seriously were methodically terminated by the FAA.

Multiple reports to Congress - or any other agency - had zero-effect.

Check out -

Airline Safety ‘Net

- for a good look at the FAA.

the PBS program is "Hunting Bin Laden," and well worth watching. Go here to read full transcription that I posted last night: ( Hunting Bin Laden)

It's very long; you might want to bookmark for future reading. At the end of transcription, there's a link to the PBS page. Hope you can catch the show.

FAA checking report of suspected terrorist visiting airport control tower

By ROBERT O'NEILL The Associated Press 9/16/01 11:11 PM

BOSTON (AP) -- Federal authorities are checking whether a suspected terrorist took a tour of the control tower at Logan International Airport three days before planes from the airport were hijacked, the FAA confirmed Sunday.

The FAA initiated an internal investigation after receiving a tip, said Jim Peters, spokesman for the New England regional office of the Federal Aviation Administration.

There is no log kept of tower visitors, and no security video. That means everyone who worked at the tower must be interviewed, Peters said.

The FAA, as a courtesy, allows pilots to tour the tower, though access is restricted. An air traffic controller at Logan, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said foreigners usually need permission from an FAA regional office before being allowed into the tower. The controller said he had not seen anyone matching the description of the hijackers in the tower.

The FAA regional office in Burlington, Mass., refused to comment, referring questions to spokesmen in New York.

The FBI says 10 men hijacked two passenger jets bound from Boston to Los Angeles on Tuesday morning and crashed them into the World Trade Center in New York City. Two other hijacked jets crashed into the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field.
