    FBI Says No Hard Evidence (With Background)

    http://georgewashington.blogspot.com...-Evidence.html

    When I first read the article by Ed Haas claiming that the FBI says, “No hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11”, I took it with a grain of salt. It frankly seemed incredible that the FBI's spokesman, Chief of Investigative Publicity, would say “The FBI has no hard evidence connecting Usama Bin Laden to 9/11.”

    But then I found an article from Wired magazine dated September 27, 2001 stating:

    "There's going to be a considerable amount of time before anyone associated with the attacks is actually charged," said Rex Tomb, who is head of the FBI's chief fugitive publicity unit and helps decide which fugitives appear on the list. "To be charged with a crime, this means we have found evidence to confirm our suspicions, and a prosecutor has said we will pursue this case in court."

    . . .

    President Bush promises to reveal evidence linking bin Laden to the suicide hijackers who attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Bin Laden has applauded the attacks but denies direct involvement.

    Because the list is used to attract the public's attention to a fugitive, careful consideration must take place before a decision is made, Tomb said. The FBI evaluates if publicity will help or hinder the search for a suspect."

    So Ed Haas' article is more credible than it might have looked. And everyone in the world knows who Bin Laden is and what he looks like, so there doesn't seem to be a concern for publicity hindering the search for Bin Laden.

    So the question remains: If there's still no hard evidence linking Bin Laden and 9/11, why is the government still blaming Bin Laden for the 9/11 attacks?

    And not ENTIRELY accurate...

    From www.cooperativeresearch.org

    CIA Director George Tenet was told of the crash a few minutes after it happened. A messenger gave him the news as he was eating breakfast with former Senator David Boren in a Washington restaurant three blocks from the White House. Boren says Tenet was told that the World Trade Center had been attacked by an airplane: “I was struck by the fact that [the messenger] used the word attacked.” An aide then handed a cell phone to Tenet, and Tenet made some calls, showing that at least some at the highest levels of the Bush administration were talking about an attack at this time. Tenet then said to Boren, “You know, this has bin Laden’s fingerprints all over it.” [ABC, 9/14/02]

    In this piece, I wrote:

    "And wow, the speed at which they surmised it was him. By 4pm, "National Security Correspondent David Ensor reports that U.S. officials say there are "good indications" that Saudi militant Osama bin Laden, suspected of coordinating the bombings of two U.S. embassies in 1998, is involved in the attacks, based on "new and specific" information developed since the attacks."

    It wasn't by 4pm. It was before the 2nd plane hit.
