Even though the Phoenix memo of July 10, 2001, by FBI Agent Kenneth Williams was sent to the FBI’s National Security Division, “the failure to act on Williams’s recommendation to investigate flight training by Islamic radicals was a blunder of monumental proportions. The information was not taken seriously by the FBI, it did not get analyzed, and it was not shared with other intelligence agencies or even other FBI field offices, except New York.”
