Secretive CIA Site in New York Was Destroyed on Sept. 11

by James Risen Published on Sunday, November 4, 2001

(NEW YORK) "Immediately after the attack, the C.I.A. dispatched a special team to scour the rubble in search of secret documents and intelligence reports that had been stored in the New York station, either on paper or in computers, officials said. It could not be learned whether the agency was successful in retrieving its classified records from the wreckage.

A C.I.A. spokesman declined to comment."

Excellent work

Aidan and FO.

I didn't realize this CIA station was a secret.

Priceless, thanks Aidan

perhaps this coalition of 60 good govt-public interest orgs organized by the National Security Archive can help out here-

if Obama won't allow investigation of what happened when the Bush Administration took over Jan 20, 2001 (or the Clinton Administration), it will be good to get that on record. Hopefully, there will be transparency.

How about a FOIA request for the bid

submitted to the Port Authority by Controlled Demolition and/or others for the job to take down the Twin Towers?

Keep up the great work, Mr. Monaghan!

You are an inspiration.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.
