“In my first public testimony during the new [Bush] administration, in February [7] 2001, I [then-CIA Director George Tenet] told the Senate that ‘The threat from terrorism is real, it is immediate, and it is evolving. …[A]s we have increased security around government and military facilities, terrorists are seeking out ‘softer’ targets that provide opportunities for mass casualties. …Usama Bin Ladin and his global network of lieutenants and associates remain the most immediate and serious threat. …He is capable of planning multiple attacks with little or no warning.’ ”

 – George Tenet with Bill Harlow, At the Center of the Storm, Page 144
