In 2007, the CIA’s Inspector General released a report on the CIA’s performance prior to 9/11. It read: “…by March 2000 fully fifty or sixty individuals within the CIA knew that two Al Qaeda suspects had come to America–but no one officially notified the FBI about this. …’The two guys’ names were just sitting in someone’s outbox. It just didn’t get done,’ a former top officer in the CIA’s clandestine service admitted. …’There were piles and PILES of un-translated intercepts.’ ” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
