An Alternative History of Al Qaeda: The 9/11 Intelligence ‘Failure’

ClandesTime 117 - The 9/11 Intelligence 'Failure' from Tom Secker on Vimeo.

In the five years running up to 9/11 the NSA were monitoring Osama Bin Laden’s satellite phone and Al Qaeda’s communication hub, and the CIA were closely following their key operatives, including to the so-called ‘9/11 summit’ in Malaysia. So why didn’t they prevent the attacks? This week we look at the ‘failure’ of the NSA, CIA and FBI to share important information and ask whether these intelligence failures were the result of deliberate decisions on the part of those responsible for preventing terrorist attacks.
