Before September 11, 2001: Translator Alleges FBI Agent Is Deliberately Deceived Regarding Skyscraper Warning      Complete 911 Timeline

       FBI translator Sibel Edmonds later makes some allegations of serious FBI misconduct, but the specifics of these allegations have generally remained publicly unknown due to a gag order placed on her. However, in a public August 2004 letter, she alleges that some time before 9/11, an unnamed FBI field agent discovers foreign documentation revealing “certain information regarding blueprints, pictures, and building material for skyscrapers being sent overseas. It also reveal[s] certain illegal activities in obtaining visas from certain embassies in the Middle East, through network contacts and bribery.” The document is in a foreign language and apparently the agent isn't given an adequate translation of it before 9/11. Approximately one month after 9/11, the agent will suspect the original translation is insuffient and will ask the FBI Washington Field Office to retranslate it. The significant information mentioned above is finally revealed, but FBI translation unit supervisor Mike Feghali decides not to send this information back to the field agent. Instead, Feghali sends a note stating that the translation was reviewed and the original translation was accurate. The field agent never receives the accurate translation. This is all according to Edmonds' letter. She claims Feghali “has participated in certain criminal activities and security breaches, and [engaged] in covering up failures and criminal conducts within the department...” While the mainstream media hasn't yet reported on this incident, in January 2005 an internal government report will determine that most of Edmonds' allegations have been verified and none of them could be refuted.

(9:20 a.m.): FBI Washington Office Is Warned Flight 77 Has Been Hijacked      Complete 911 Timeline

Arthur Eberhart.
In a government report analyzing the effectiveness of rescue worker response to the Pentagon crash, it is mentioned that, “At about 9:20 a.m., the WFO [FBI Washington Field Office] Command Center [is] notified that American Airlines Flight 77 had been hijacked shortly after takeoff from Washington Dulles International Airport. [Special Agent in Charge Arthur] Eberhart dispatche[s] a team of 50 agents to investigate the Dulles hijacking and provide additional security to prevent another. He sen[ds] a second team to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport as a precautionary step. At the WFO Command Center, Supervisory Special Agent (SSA) Jim Rice [is] on the telephone with the Pentagon when Flight 77 crashe[s] into the building.” [Arlington County After-Action Report, 7/02 (B)] Yet according to the 9/11 Commission, NORAD is not told that Flight 77 had been hijacked at this time or any time before it crashes. However, the FAA has claimed they officially warned NORAD at 9:24 a.m. (see (9:24 a.m.)) and informally warned them even earlier (see (9:24 a.m.)).
