Former Intel Chiefs Come Out Swinging

Former FBI Director Louis Freeh asks why the 9/11 Commission ignored the military intelligence operation code-named "Able Danger" in an article published by The Wall St. Journal.

Freeh writes "[s]pecifically, 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 critical information with FBI agents [and with the U.S. Congress], even though appointments had been made to do so. Why?"


Former CIA Director Stansfield Turner stated he is "embarrassed the United States has a vice president for torture" in an interview with ITV News.
