CIA Files On Al Qaeda/Bin Laden Leading Up To 9/11

Founders Code

The collection includes rarely released CIA emails, raw intelligence cables, analytical summaries, high-level briefing materials, and comprehensive counter-terrorism reports that are usually withheld from the public because of their sensitivity. Today’s posting covers a variety of topics of major public interest, including background to al Qaeda’s planning for the attacks; the origins of the Predator program now in heavy use over Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran; al Qaeda’s relationship with Pakistan; CIA attempts to warn about the impending threat; and the impact of budget constraints on the U.S. government’s hunt for bin Laden.

The documents released by the CIA detail the meticulousness of al Qaeda’s plot against the United States and CIA attempts to counter the rising terrorist threat. A previously undisclosed raw intelligence report that became the basis for the December 4, 1998, President’s Daily Brief, notes that five years before the actual attack, al Qaeda operatives had successfully evaded security at a New York airport in a test-run for bin Laden’s plan to hijack a U.S. airplane. [1998-12-03]. CIA analytical reports also provide interesting insights into al Qaeda’s evolving political strategies. “In our view, the hijackers were carefully selected with an eye to their operational and political value. For instance, the large number of Saudi nationals was most likely chosen not only because of the ease with which Saudi nationals could get US visas but also because Bin Laden could send a message to the Saudi Royal family.” [2003-06-01]

Reports on early attempts to apprehend bin Laden detail the beginning of the U.S. Predator drone program in Afghanistan and Pakistan. “First Predator mission over Afghanistan [excised] September 7, 2000.” [1] “Twice in the fall of 2000, the Predator observed an individual most likely to be Bin Laden; however we had no way at the time to react to this information.” [2004-03-19] American UAVs did not have sufficient weapons capabilities at the time the CIA likely spotted bin Laden in 2000 to fire on the suspect using the UAV.

Allen West To Obama: “Please Stop With The Bin Laden Line, Navy SEALs Double-Tapped That Rascal”…

Weasel Zippers

Love it.

Via Allen West/Facebook:

I agree with President Obama that he does not bluff, he prefers apologizing. Simply stated, talk is cheap when dealing with despots, dictators, autocrats, and theocrats. PM Netanyahu understands his neighborhood and we should defer to a former Israeli Commando on matters such as this instead of a community organizer.

I appreciate President Obama’s desire to seem tough but so far it has only resulted in the expansion of radical Islamist dominance in the middle east. And please stop with the Osama Bin Laden line, US Navy SEALS double-tapped that rascal.

Bin Laden Docs Say “Seek Govt IDs, Licenses”

By Debbie Schlussel

Documents found in Osama Bin Laden’s Pakistani compound confirm something I’ve long warned about–that Islamic terrorists and their minions continue to seek various government IDs and licenses to foment their operations, because it remains easy to do, thanks to our inaction and politically correct pandering.  I’ve written frequently about non-citizen Islamic terrorists seeking driver’s licenses, voter’s registration cards, HazMat hauling certificates (remember the mass Muslim cheating at trucking schools?) and other forms of identification which can be used in other countries–and far too often in the U.S.–to easily avoid closer scrutiny and move about freely.

The Dumbest Lawyer In The US Says Raid Was Legal

Flopping Aces

The guy who wants to prosecute a SEAL for slapping a terrorist and put Chaney and Bush in prison for the water boarding that provided the intel for the killing of Bin Laden, says the raid was perfectly legal. President Obama can invade another country and kill a foreign national, steal the body, and abduct family members. This has now been uncovered in the Constitution and confirmed by our Attorney General Eric Holder.

The president is granted special privileges with Seal Team 6 and according to Holder, he but not Bush, can do no wrong. Oh, for the record, Seal Team 6, was called Chaney’s Execution Squad during the Bush Administration.
