The Missed Cue


After the Sepotember 11 Attack on the World Trade center, the CIA was laid to blame for not preventing it.

The analysts had an impossible task, so therefore they should not be blamed for it.

Blame the whole intelligence system of the U.S. But then again at the configuration they were working in, it really was impossible to predict where the attack would come from, and when?

There was a missed signal, however, in that some intelligence warning was ignored. This warning came from a country in the Far East which Bin Laden happened to visit.

The warning was that the U.S. would be attacked using commercial planes.

This warning might not have been directed to the CIA, but to some other agency.

Now a terroristĀ attack using commercial planes would have been impossible at that time.
