Mubarak: Egypt Warned U.S. About 9/11

from the retroactive-foreknowledge dept.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, speaking to a reporter for the New York Times, has said that Egypt delivered a warning to U.S. officials that a major al Queda terrorist operation was in the works in the week before the 9/11 attacks. Not so, says an unidentified “senior U.S. intelligence official,” also quoted in the article. “The Egyptians gave us some threat information, earlier in 2001, of possible attacks against U.S. or Egyptian interests… There was nothing about hijackings, nothing about an attack inside the U.S. It did not come in the days before 9/11.” Mubarak acknowledges that the warning was non-specific, and that it didn’t mention hijackings or attacks inside the U.S., but insists it was given just a few days before the attacks. So, one of these sources (at least) is lying. Cool.

    It looks this is not a lie. Check the former FBI testimony infront of the 9/11 comission.
