“By August 23 [2001]…the FBI was told by French intelligence that [potential terrorist Zacarias] Moussaoui was linked to Islamic rebels in Chechnya. And these rebels were linked to Osama bin Laden and the Taliban militia in Afghanistan. But the connection was not enough for the FBI to pursue the investigation of Moussaoui as a foreign counterintelligence probe. Such a probe would have given them the warrant needed to do a detailed search and surveillance.”
