Recent revelations from the military intelligence operation code-named "Able Danger" have cast light on a missed opportunity that could have potentially prevented 9/11. Specifically, Able Danger concluded in February 2000 that military experts had identified Mohamed Atta by name (and maybe photograph) as an al Qaeda agent operating in the U.S. Subsequently, military officers assigned to Able Danger were prevented from sharing this critical information with FBI agents, even though appointments had been made to do so. Why?Several possible reasons: a Clinton-era official erected an information barrier between intelligence agencies, ostensibly to protect "civil rights". She got herself appointed to the 9/11 Commission. Alternatively: the Defense Intelligence Agency (it ran Able Danger) is trying to hide something, possibly the fact it ignored substantial evidence identifying Al Qaeda terrorists already present in the United States and (in hindsight) involved in planning the 9/11 attacks.
