American Samizdat

Yahoo! announces in a news bulletin that a probe has found that the U.S. Knew of Jet Terror Plots, noting that intelligence agencies had received many more reports about possible strikes than was formerly disclosed. A sample:
The reports were generally vague and uncorroborated. None specifically predicted the Sept. 11 attacks. But collectively the reports "reiterated a consistent and critically important theme: Osama bin Laden's intent to launch terrorist attacks inside the United States," [Eleanor Hill, staff director of the joint House and Senate intelligence committee investigation of the terrorist strike] said.
Meanwhile, MSNBC reports that administration officials' support for the inquiries is less-than-complete: "Are we getting the cooperation we need? Absolutely not,' Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., said on NBC’s 'Today' show."
