NPR : Terrorism Intelligence Timeline
Topic: War on Terrorism 6:16 pm EDT, May 26, 2002

NPR's Mike Shuster reports on Morning Edition that government agencies had several clues that might have triggered alarms in the months before Sept. 11. But no one put them together.

Senior government officials were frantic about threats from al Qaeda, going all the way back to June 2001. There were daily meetings in the White House, and alerts issued from the FBI, the State Department and the Federal Aviation Administration.

"The warnings were serious, the information specific and some of it had to do with the use of airplanes to kill the president and foreign leaders."

Be sure to follow the "Listen to Mike Shuster's report" link to hear the audio track for this story. It's the best study I've seen thus far into how close we actually came to having specific advance knowledge of September 11.

Fact-Finding and Its Limits
Topic: War on Terrorism 5:39 pm EDT, May 26, 2002

It's not surprising that many officials in Washington are talking about convening an independent panel to investigate the federal government's actions before the Sept. 11 attacks. ... Congressional investigations can calm public anxiety, push reforms upon government agencies and in some cases force out ineffective officials. What they are unlikely to do is give us the kind of understanding that normally comes only decades later from history, when we will have full access to information and the distance to judge it properly.

Presidential historian Michael Beschloss explains it all.

FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitive - Eric Robert Rudolph
Topic: War on Terrorism 5:53 am EST, Nov  7, 2001

A friend of mine mentioned this tonight. Eric Rudolph has a million dollar price on his head and is hiding in the North Carolina Mountains. If we can't find this guy, how the fuck do we expect to find Bin Lauden?

On the other hand, got any creative ideas on tracking him down? Pretending to be a conservative christian for a couple years is probably worth this much money.... um, probably...
