1,757. 10/12/2000

On October 12, 2000, “the same day that the attack on the [USS] Cole occurred, NSA [National Security Agency] issued an intelligence report based on intercepts (most likely calls coming in and out of [al Qaeda operative] Ahmed al-Hada’s home in Sana’a [Yemen]) warning that terrorists were planning an attack in the region. However, the NSA warning message was not received by consumers until well after the attack had taken place.”
