Are Authorities Covering Up a 9/11 Story?

BILL O'REILLY, HOST: In the Impact segment tonight, last year a reporter for The Journal News in Westchester County, New York, received a tip that a 14-year-old Palestinian boy attending a high school in Brooklyn told his teacher the 9/11 attack was going to happen one week before it did. The school actually reported the incident to authorities after 9/11. But they, the authorities, have hushed this up.

Thanks for posting the transcript of the interview. I've read about this incident, and think it should be pursued further too.

IMHO, the untold story of the failures of intelligence to predict 9/11 involve the fear of being accused of racial profiling. What bureaucrat last year was willing to stick his/her neck out to suggest a clamp down on "Middle-Eastern-looking" men?

I cannot believe they have closed the file without any conclusions. Can kids be given lie detector tests? Their parents? They should be MADE to tell how they knew. If they say they made it up, give them polygraph. This PC stuff is killing us, literally.

Imho, every constituent of anyone on the Senate Intelligence committee ought to email the link you posted with a one word question: Why?

Senate Intelligence Committee.

I still can't believe how little apparent interest has been shown on FR this week in connection to the Intel hearings on 9/11.

I followed the original Insight thread and was similarly shocked. As a constituent of Sen. Richard Shelby, I emailed him. Excellent suggestion.

The lack of interest in the hearings this week, GloryGirl, is because too many freepers dont want to see and hear of the incompetence of their beloved Republicans.

So they pretend that it was all Clintons fault.

Congress dos not need the permission of the FBI/CIA to carry out its' mandated duties to protect this nation. The big cover-up is that congress had/has all the information these agencies do. The politicians look out for the interests of the morticians union much more than they do the nations' safety.

Everyone knows it was a total screw up by past and current administrations. Lots of CYA is goin on out there. God bless the souls who died in the attack and their loved ones whose lives were instantly altered. But we have bigger problems than trying to figure out who is to blame for not stopping the terrorists from doing their evil deeds. It really comes down to this. The terrorists have demonstrated that we need to terminate them and their backers before further great harm occurs to our nation. This is what wars are about.

Regarding the Did Jailed 'Spy' in Canada Predict 911 Attacks?

If you guys want to really fly ou there into the twilight zone: from the 'TC TECHNICAL CONSULTANT', Nov.-Dec., 1991 issue: Unsubstantiated information from an intelligence source claims that the current situation is THE VISIBLE EFFECT OF A WAR CURRENTLY GOING ON IN THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY between a group centered in the CIA called AQUARIUS [around a powerful center known as MJ-12] and a group known as COM-12 centered around Naval Intelligence. COM-12 is reputedly trying to sustain a rearguard action to sustain and preserve constitutional government and is deliberately LEAKING INFORMATION damaging to the former group."According to journalist Colin Brown in the December-January 1991 issue of Technical Consultant said that Com-12/ONI are the good guys with "almost supernatural communications capability". If all these spooky stuff is true, then the jailed "spy" is a COM-12/ONI operative, which explains his "prediction".

"Spotlight" is more of a Nazi-white supremacist thing, although I believe they were among the groups praising the 9/11 attacks.

I think that Israel is too smart to antagonize us, and we trust Israel enough that we are storing a huge amount of weaponry and stuff (to use on Iraq) right now.

You *really* don't want to know what I think of your crackpot, borerline anti-Semitic "assertion" that Mossad knew of the 9/11 attacks and did nothing to warn us or stop them.

If I can butt into your discussion on whether Israeli intelligence knew something before hand..

There is anecdotal evidence that Russia knew something was about to go down around 9/11 as well. This ties in with the jailed "spy" in Canada story too. A few weeks after 9/11 the Russians revealed that among some Chechen fighters killed they found plans discussing 9/11 type activities. The man in Canada claiming to be an American spy was active in Russia at the time.

It is very possible that the Russians got that info before hand and when they revealed what they had they changed the date of the intel gathering for obvious reasons. It is almost certain that Russia got wind of 9/11 from their war with the Chechens who are backed by al-Qaida. Just last week the FBI released a warning about non-Arab looking Chechens that may try and hijack a plane.

If--if--the Russian knew, why didn't they warn us?

Well candidate for president, Bush ran a platform campaign (which he didn't write but backed) that backed the Chechens over the Russians and another presidential candidate Senator McCain was so pro Chechen that he almost threatened to go to war with Russia to back the Chechens (most of my fellow Republicans have forgotten how pro-Islamic rebels some of our Republican leadership was if the foe was Russia or India or China), and the Democratic candidates of Gore and Lieberman were 10 times worse (the Democrats actually staged 2 wars in support of Bosnian and Albanian Muslims al-Qaida allies against Slavic, Orthodox Christians).

So the Russians were not on very good speaking terms with America when 9/11 happened and were not inclined to share info with us even if they did know something. I am sure American support for the PLO probably also tainted Israeli intel sharing with us.

In all this post 9/11 examination no one is mentioning how high some of our leading figures were for some jihads and how that how 9/11 may have been a "blowback" of some kind?

I don't think so. The Spotlight has been closed down for some time. The first amendment doesn't always apply.

Actually, I put very little faith in that jailed guy in Canada. Since no one is doing much of an investigation so far rumours are bound to spread like wild fire.
