'I saw papers that show US knew al Qaeda would attack cities with airplanes'

How long I've waited for this headline.

'I saw papers that show US knew al-Qa'ida would attack cities with aeroplanes': Independent

[www.smirkingchimp.com]

"A former translator for the FBI with top-secret security clearance says she has provided information to the panel investigating the 11 September attacks which proves senior officials knew of al-Qa'ida's plans to attack the US with aircraft months before the strikes happened.

She said the claim by the National Security Adviser, Condoleezza Rice, that there was no such information was "an outrageous lie".

Sibel Edmonds said she spent more than three hours in a closed session with the commission's investigators providing information that was circulating within the FBI in the spring and summer of 2001 suggesting that an attack using aircraft was just months away and the terrorists were in place. The Bush administration, meanwhile, has sought to silence her and has obtained a gagging order from a court by citing the rarely used "state secrets privilege".

She told The Independent yesterday: "I gave [the commission] details of specific investigation files, the specific dates, specific target information, specific managers in charge of the investigation. I gave them everything so that they could go back and follow up. This is not hearsay. These are things that are documented. These things can be established very easily."

She added: "There was general information about the time-frame, about methods to be used but not specifically about how they would be used and about people being in place and who was ordering these sorts of terror attacks. There were other cities that were mentioned. Major cities with skyscrapers."


Also frrom the right-wing Newsmax article, "Former FBI Translator: U.S. Had Details Before 9/11"

"In 2002, Sen. Grassley (R) was asked during a "60 Minutes" segment looking into Edmonds' initial charges against the bureau if she was credible.


"She's credible, and the reason I feel she's very credible is because people within the FBI have corroborated a lot of her story," the Republican senator said. "
