The recent release of a declassified CIA report adds disturbing new details to an already extensive public record of September 11-related failures. The report describes how the CIA never developed a comprehensive plan to stop al Qaeda, and missed crucial opportunities to thwart two hijackers before September 11 2001. The details of the errors in that report echo exclusive information obtained by Al Jazeera reporter Yosri Fouda in 2002.

In April 2002 Fouda conducted the first and only interview with the two main planners of the September 11 attacks. Fouda was blindfolded and taken to a hideaway in Karachi, Pakistan where he met Khaled Sheikh Mohamad and Ramzi Bin Al-Shibh. In the interview he obtained the first full admission by Al Qaeda that they had carried out the 9-11 attacks.

Through exclusive information from that interview, Al Jazeera was able to track the movements of the hijackers in their countdown to their mission of death - and it became apparent how much the United States had failed to detect and prevent what Al Qaeda called its 'Planes' Operation'.

From a high-level Al Qaeda summit held in Kuala Lumpur in 2000, to intelligence disregarded by both American and European security services proving an attack was imminent, Fouda's investigation makes clear there was a litany of astonishing mistakes by the CIA in the run-up to the September 11 attacks.

In Plain Sight is an extraordinary account of the cover-up and complicity of US intelligence in the run-up to 9/11 - with exclusive footage of the hijackers preparing for their suicide mission.

At this point in time, only TV idiots think that 19 Arabs instigated the 911 attack instead of the Jewish Zionists of America and Israel. The evidence of the Jewish hand in the whole falseflag affair is overwhelming and can be seen in the details. The Jews and their collaborators had the most to gain. They were indeed the mastermind and had all the knowhow and explosives. They had total control of the matter including the media for coverup. The Arabs involved were only "patsies" set up to take the blame. Recommended study: Rabbi Dov Zakheim, Silverstein's WTC7, the "dancing Israelis, and Israeli Daniel Lewin...and that is only the tip of the iceberg. Check into Atta's background with Florida cocaine dealings and check out his girlfriend Amanda Keller. You will get the picture of how the patsies were set up.

Interesting article on the doc "In Plain Sight". Suggestion... Why don't you bring to the publics attention these facts.... Why did WTC 7 fall down? Why was the hole in the pentagon too small for the aircraft that was supposed to have hit it? What happened to the plane that crashed in wreckage? Why was the west wall of the pentagon targeted when all the top brass were in the east wing and this was public knowlage? Why did the wtc towers fall at freefall speeds (11 secs), and clearly show signs of explosions dozens of stories below the actual collapse. Isn't it plane to see that the whole event was a false flag operation by the USA to justify the invasion of Iraq ( a country on it's knees due to 10 years of western sanctions).. Are the Islamic govornments part of the same conspiracy ? The world oil supply is peaking, we are on the edge of a civilization and world wide collapse. Why oh why wont Aljazeera tell it as it is? We are heading for utter devastation and die off on a planatery scale. Some news network has to tell it as it is...ours wont. We are out of time for playing pollitics, use your influence, examine the facts and stand up and speak the truth. Very best regards.

I am very impressed of the program "In Plain Sight - new details to an already extensive public record of September 11-related failures." That I have seen today partially among the hours 13 and 14 (Italian Time). I don't find the tv schedulation; I would like to know when you again transmit this program. I wish making you my compliments, a television that makes information.

I'm writting to express my disappointment of your inability to completely air the video "In Plain Sight" on 7 Sept. '07. I really would like to see it without interuptions or perhaps even purchase a copy if one is available. I really expected better service from you. Sincerely,
Glenn from Kansas
