Who Knew Terrorists Would Use Planes?

Apparently a lot more people than what we were told. The Le Monde newspaper is reporting that France's foreign intelligence service had learned as early as January 2001 that al Qaida was planning to use a U.S. airplane in an attack. The CIA was then informed of this.

(AP/USA Today) Le Monde newspaper said it had obtained 328 pages of classified documents on Osama bin Laden's terror network that were drawn up by the French spy service, the DGSE, between July 2000 and October 2001. The documents included a Jan. 5, 2001, intelligence report warning that al-Qaeda was at work on a hijacking plot.
It probably only said something like, "Bin Laden determined to strike in U.S.". But as we have learned from Condoleezza Rice, it "was an historical document" more than a threat. Which is probably why NOTHING was done prior to 9/11 by the Bush Administration. Bush, been letting Americans down since 2001.
