FBI Prevents Agents from Telling 'Truth' About 9/11 on PBS

I just saw this article at the Congressional Quarterly. It is a major, major development:

The FBI has blocked two of its veteran counterterrorism agents from going public with accusations that the CIA deliberately withheld crucial intelligence before the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

FBI Special Agents Mark Rossini and Douglas Miller have asked for permission to appear in an upcoming public television documentary, scheduled to air in January, on pre-9/11 rivalries between the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency.

The program is a spin-off from The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America, by acclaimed investigative reporter James Bamford, due out in a matter of days.

The FBI denied Rossini and Miller permission to participate in the book or the PBS "NOVA" documentary, which is also being written and produced by Bamford,/ on grounds that the FBI "doesn't want to stir up old conflicts with the CIA," according to multiple reliable sources.

Continued here.

There are a number of things to be said about this story and I will have some reaction to it later. It is obviously related to this category in the 9/11 Timeline.

Thanks for this.

Hey Rep, you might want to sticky this somewhere on the left column, so this doesn't get buried. This is indeed major. Among other things, it's a perfect answer to those who can't get their head around the "someone would have talked" logical fallacy.

I just...

Added these to my Who Is? list...

Who Is Mark Rossini?
Who Is Douglas Miller?

You can see the whole list here.

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

What Wilshire Knew

I blogged here what Wilshire knew in the summer of 2001:


Basically, he knew al-Qaeda was going to attack the US and that this attack would be in the US, yet he continued to hamper the FBI investigation.

Thread on this topic at Democratic Underground

So far its still in General Discussion and hasn't been moved out of sight to the 9/11 dungeon forum and it's drawing lots of comments.
