“The CIA ran a clandestine op in the U.S., and they didn’t want the FBI involved in it.”

Mr. Rossini blames the CIA for the 9/11 attacks. It is my opinion that his story should be investigated rather than dismissed as a ‘Conspiracy Theory’.
Tracking al-Qaeda operatives in the US
Rossini served as one of the two FBI liaisons to the CIA’s Bin Laden Issue Station, an inter-agency team assigned to track Osama bin Laden and his associates. Rossini was aware in January 2000 that two al-Qaeda members, Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar, had valid US visas.
However, a CIA employee, Michael Anne Casey, stopped him from passing the information to FBI headquarters. Rossini knew that if he reported this information to his FBI colleagues he would be breaking the law. The two men turned out to be hijackers of American Airlines flight 77 on 9/11. [Wikipedia]
“Rossini is convinced that the CIA, in an effort to get more information on al Qaeda, was trying to recruit al-Midhar or, less likely, his close associate, Nawaf al-Hazmi—in other words, to turn one or both of them into a source that would share the terror organization’s secrets.”
“Doing so on U.S. soil without consulting the FBI is prohibited. Bush counter-terrorism czar Richard Clarke, who was also kept in the dark, embraces the same theory.” [28pages.org]
Sudden change of Attitude
In August of 2001, the CIA suddenly called for a meeting with the FBI in New York. The Agency wanted the bureau’s help in tracking down al-Midhar and al-Hazmi. Too little, too late…
The story is buried deep within 116 pages of tiny print in the back of the “9/11 Commission Report”.
