After making an unsuccessful warrant request to search potential terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui’s laptop, FBI Agent and general counsel in the Minneapolis field office, Coleen Rowley, sent an email to FBI headquarters on August 21, 2001, “saying it was ‘imperative’ that the Secret Service be warned that unknown terrorists working with Moussaoui might try to hijack a plane and divert it to Washington. That was also ignored.”
