The Man Who Knew

PBS Frontline details FBI Special Agent John O’Neill’s efforts to sound the alarms about al Qaeda’s growing reach and threat to the U.S., only to be branded a maverick and roundly ignored. O’Neill elf the FBI in the summer of 201 and took a new job as head of security at the World Trade Center, where he died on September 11th.

The 9/11 Commission’s investigation revealed that America’s $30 billion intelligence community, spread over more than a dozen agencies, was disorganized, fractured and impaired by organizational and legal restrictions on the sharing of information.
These disclosures directly relate to John O’Neill’s story. He came tantalizingly close to possibly uncovering the 9/11 plot. But his investigations into the USS Cole terrorist attack and into Al Qaeda’s presence in the United States were both undermined by the CIA and FBI’s failure to share information with each other.

    there are things that people in America don’t understand about this terrorists. it’s impossible to wipe them out because this what they are and what they are living for. you kill them another group would emerge and continue the cycle. things aren’t easy as they same. you are dealing with people who know’s nothing but to die for what they believe in.

    He was well written of in the media after the “Twin Towers” fell. & from the first “Twin Towers” attack with a car bomb in the basement, he kept warning those on high that this could happen. Listen, they didn’t & fall, did the Twin Towers”. John’s death could have being avoided as well as all the other death’s…if he had been listened to.

    May he rest in Peace.

    i believe that the ambassador o yeman should be fired. if he was in command of the cole investigation i have no idea how she would even start to not let him in to that country. also i would like to see somebody peace this all together and start sueing those fat cats or should i say lazy cats who dont want to rock the boat as long as their pockets are getting lined. i feel all the goverment should be turned upside down and thrown out with the morning trash. AND START OVER GET SOME HONEST PEOPLE IN, not people who have made a career of picking the flesh off the bones of the rest of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I met the 911 terrorists in Canada in 1999 and tried desperately to tell FBI AND Chilliwack, BC RCMP, to no avail. http://911terroristsincanada1999.blogspot.ca/

    they said they were in Canada to learn to fly crop dusters which they planned to use to spray poison over large American cities, and to poison their water. They had come through Walkerton, Ontario just hours before on August 3, 1999.

    The nicest thing you can say about PBS (Propaganda Broadcasting System) is that it makes the official story SOOO believable, all one has to do is believe in 1) complete incompetence in several Federal agencies (not partial, TOTAL) and 2) The suspension of the laws of physics.

    How about having ex murderers sitting in your parliament like we have here in Ireland. Nothing can be done about it as they were elected.. Mind boggling ignorance …..
