FBI & 9/11 By Sibel Edmonds Just a Citizen.com
Monday 20 June 2005
Over four years ago, more than four months prior to the September 11 terrorist attacks, in April 2001, a long-term FBI informant/asset who had been providing the bureau with information since 1990 provided two FBI agents and a translator with specific information regarding a terrorist attack being planned by Osama bin Laden. This asset/informant was previously a high-level intelligence officer
in Iran in charge of intelligence from Afghanistan. Through his contacts in Afghanistan, he received information that:
- 1) Osama bin Laden was planning a major terrorist attack in the United States targeting 4-5 major cities,
- 2) the attack was going to involve airplanes,
- 3) some of the individuals in charge of carrying out this attack were already in place in the United
- 4) the attack was going to be carried out soon, in a few months.
The agents who received this information reported it to their superior, Special Agent in Charge of Counterterrorism Thomas Frields, at the FBI Washington Field Office, by filing "302" forms, and the translator, Mr. Behrooz Sarshar, translated and documented this information. No action was taken by the Special Agent in Charge, Thomas Frields, and after 9/11 the agents and the translators were
told to "keep quiet" regarding this issue.
