Antiwar Radio: Coleen Rowley

Coleen Rowley, retired FBI agent and 9/11 whistleblower, discusses the cycle of intelligence sharing, from pre-9/11 inter-agency competitive secrecy, to post-9/11 information overload, and back to clamming up again (post-WikiLeaks); why, despite the greatly expanded national security state, the only successes in thwarting actual terrorism have come from vigilant bystanders; Sibel Edmonds’ incredible account of another FBI linguist’s meetings with a former SAVAK chief, where he steadfastly warned of an imminent attack by bin-Laden led Kamikaze pilots in major US cities in 2001; and the 9/11 Commission’s failure to mention any of this, or the three Qatari men conducting surveillance for the 9/11 hijackings – who, as revealed by WikiLeaks, are still being pursued by the FBI.
