New Info on 1993 FBI-UBL Link MISSING from 9/11 Report!
News of yet another missed opportunity to thwart the attacks of September 11, 2001 as far back as 1993. This information was not part of “The 9/11 Commission Report.” This is the single most disturbing piece of information about 9/11/01 that your humble blogger has encountered in 2 years of counter-jihad blogging. The following is merely an abstract of the full article. EXCELLENT REPORTING BY THE WASHINGTON TIMES!
In a revelation missing from the official investigations of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the FBI placed a human source in direct contact with Osama bin Laden in 1993 and ascertained that the al Qaeda leader was looking to finance terrorist attacks in the United States, according to court testimony in a little-noticed employment dispute case.
The information the FBI gleaned back then was so specific that it helped thwart a terrorist plot against a Masonic lodge in Los Angeles, the court records reviewed by The Washington Times show.
Members of the Sept. 11 commission, congressional intelligence committees and terrorism analysts told The Times they are floored that the information is just now emerging publicly and that it raises questions about what else Americans might not have been told about the origins of al Qaeda and its early interest in attacking the United States.
Missing from the testimony and the record is any mention of what eventually happened to the human asset and whether he was still available to the United States in later years. U.S. officials declined to discuss the source’s whereabouts after 1994.
The 9/11 Commission report broadly outlines how, during the early 1990s, bin Laden was seeking to expand al Qaeda globally…
But the report downplays the notion that bin Laden was actively plotting or seeking to finance any specific attacks inside the United States as far back as 1993 — two pieces of information that, according to [court testimony] and contemporaneous documents, the FBI’s Los Angeles field office corroborated at the time.
