Description

This set of three stories delves into the huge system failure hidden behind the 9/11 attacks. Newsweek reports on the various signals before that day which hinted at a possible disaster and those the administration chose to ignore. What follows is an account of Bush's first reactions to a disclosure that he had been warned earlier about the possibility of Al Qaeda hijackings in the United States. And after detailing the four key mistakes instrumental in the U.S missing the clues and not knowing what to do, the Newsweek team finds that the security system is broken and much is left undone. Also included are opinion pieces by a former CIA Chief and an anonymous FBI Field Agent.
