    Aides: Bush Knew of Hijacking Threat Before Sept 11
    Updated 9:04 PM ET May 15, 2002

    By Adam Entous

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In the months before the Sept. 11 attacks, the Bush administration received intelligence that Osama bin Laden could be plotting to hijack U.S. aircraft, prompting it to put security agencies on alert, the White House said on Wednesday.

    ``The information the president got dealt with hijackings in the traditional sense, not suicide bombers, not using planes as missiles,'' White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said of the intelligence, which was presented to President Bush last summer.

    Fleischer said the information prompted the administration to put domestic law enforcement agencies on alert, though it was not announced publicly.

    ``The administration, based on hijackings, notified the appropriate agencies and, I think, that's one of the reasons that you saw that the people who committed the 9/11 attacks used box cutters and plastic knives to get around America's system of protecting against hijackings,'' Fleischer said.

    The disclosure followed reports that an FBI agent urged the bureau to investigate Middle Eastern men enrolled in U.S. flight schools several months before Sept. 11, even naming bin Laden, who Washington later accused of masterminding the attacks.

    When four hijacked airliners plowed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania on Sept. 11, Middle Eastern men trained at U.S. flight schools were at the controls. The attacks killed more than 3,000 people and destroyed the World Trade Center.

    Fleischer said Bush had been given general information about the threat of hijackings by bin Laden. ``That was information that has been known and the president was informed of it,'' he said.

    But Fleischer would not discuss specific information Bush received during his daily intelligence briefings. ``We don't discuss the president's morning briefings as a matter of policy,'' Fleischer said.

    ``I will say that there has been long-standing speculation, which was shared with the president, about the potential of hijackings in the traditional sense ... I've also indicated that we've had threatens involving bin Laden around the world, and including in the United States,'' Fleischer said.

    Now isn't that interesting....

    Just like the "shocking" admission of the existence of the shadow government a few months back (when its existence has been long known by those of us who do our homework), this half assed confession just isn't gonna cut it.

    I'll wait for the other shoe to drop.

    Who's "watching what they say" now, Ari?

    Would you have rather that they shut down commercial flights for an indefinate time upon receiving a threat? Or publicly announce that there's a threat of hijacking?

    You're asking the wrong guy, Mike. Why don't you call up Bush Jr's good friend (and election fraud partner) Ted Olson and ask him?

    I can guess what his answer might be.

    As usual, FORD and his paranoia getting in the way of common sense...

    Who HASN'T known Bin Laden was dangerous since 1998?

    Who DIDN'T know that planes could be hijacked?

    Terrorism against the West, and the U.S. in particular, isn't a new threat, FORD...

    FORD won't give me a straight answer because he's one of the back-biting hindsight jockies who never see the problem coming, but provide all the woulda-shoulda-coulda post facto. His only purpose with this is to take an unwarranted dig at the people who actually have to make and live with difficult choices.

    FORD, correct me if I'm wrong, but haven't you severly criticised Ashcroft (and we all know you'll be witty and call him Asscrotch) and the administration for issuing all of those terrorist warnings after 9-11?

    FORD's a cowardly scum who bitches and moans but has never once done anything for his country or society. He takes for granted every single thing that has been provided for him, and turns right around to try discrediting those who provide his security and freedom.

    It's really sad isn't it. I've often wondered if he actually owns an American flag. Out.

    3 FUCKIN' TIMES the Sudanese offered up OBL to the Clinton Administration and they did nothing. Why? Because they didn't wanna upset all the other dirty goat-fuckers in the Middle East. Think about that FORD while you're eating your twinkie and jackin' off to your picture of "Pappa Joe."

    So they knew that they could have hijacked airplanes. Does that mean they know when that could happen, or where?

    The US has surveilence over the entire world when it comes to threats. But what did you expect? You expect them to announce it to the entire country and make everyone paranoid? That's exactly what the slowing economy needed. A terrorist threat to keep people out of the air.

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.
