August 2001: Moroccan Informant Warns US of Large Scale, Imminent Attack in New York      Complete 911 Timeline

       According to simultaneous reports in a French magazine and a Moroccan newspaper, a Moroccan agent named Hassan Dabou has penetrated al-Qaeda to the point of getting close to bin Laden by this time. Dabou claims he learns that bin Laden is “very disappointed” that the 1993 bombing had not toppled the WTC, and plans “large scale operations in New York in the summer or fall of 2001.” Dabou is called to the US to report this information directly, and in so doing blows his cover, losing his ability to gather more intelligence. The International Herald Tribune later calls the story “not proved beyond a doubt” but intriguing, and asks the CIA to confirm or deny the story. The CIA has refused to do so. [Agence France-Presse, 11/22/01; Times of London, 6/12/02; International Herald Tribune, 5/21/02]
