“On May 17 [2001], [Richard] Clarke’s Counterterrorism Strategy Group circulated an agenda for a meeting that would, as its first item of business, focus on ‘UBL [Usama bin Laden]: Operation Planned in U.S.’ It was an uncollaborated warning phoned into an American embassy the day before that bin Laden and his followers were planning a ‘high explosives’ attack in the United States.”
