“Until now, most of the blame for failure to track the two Saudis [9/11 hijackers Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi] has been leveled at the Central Intelligence Agency. As recently as August 2006, in his 9/11 book The Looming Tower, New Yorker writer Lawrence Wright charged [in articles in The New Yorker on July 10 and July 17, 2006] that the CIA’s hoarding of intelligence on al-Mihdar, al Hazmi, and another key al Qaeda operative ‘may, in effect, have allowed the September 11 plot to proceed.’ ”
