In testimony before the House of Representatives in October 2001, former Associate Deputy Director of the FBI for Investigations, Oliver B. ‘Buck’ Revell, said: ” ‘By September 11 we certainly should have known that we were the principal target of a terrorist campaign unlike any we had ever faced. …And yet we totally failed to recognize the impending disaster. …Some of us in the counterterrorist business tried to warn of the danger, but we were generally thought of as alarmists.’ “ [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
