Taliban Says They Tried To Warn Us About 9/11

So you see, they really were good guys after all.

Supposedly, the warnings were delivered by an aide to the then Taleban Foreign Minister, Ahmed Wakil Muttawakil, who was known to be deeply unhappy with the Arab and other foreign militants in Afghanistan.

“The guests are going to destroy the guesthouse,” the minister told his aide, ordering him to alert the UN about what was going to happen. But in a massive failure of US intelligence, the message was disregarded because of what sources describe as “warning fatigue.” At the same time, the FBI and the CIA failed to take seriously warnings that Arab fundamentalist students had enrolled in flight schools across the USA.

So we were wrong for not profiling Arabs enrolling in flight school? A shocking statement from the Arab News. Bin Laden had said for years that he was going to destroy America so a vague assertion like the one here isn't much to go on. Since 9/11 supposed members of al Qaida have said the exact same thing every month. Hussein says the exact same thing will happen if we attack him.

It sounds like an Afghan trying to secure his freedom by claiming he tried to help us.
