Deconstructing the 9/11 Dot Disconnection: a book review by Erik Larson

It is a non-controversial fact that the NSA, CIA and FBI missed a number of opportunities to disrupt the 9/11 plot. Many, but not all, of these failures were documented by the four main investigations that dealt with pre-9/11 intelligence failures: those by the Congressional Joint Inquiry, the 9/11 Commission, the Department of Justice Inspector General and the CIA Inspector General. The best-known investigation, the 9/11 Commission, ultimately concluded that 9/11 was preceded by “four kinds of failures: in imagination, policy, capabilities, and management” (339). This is the narrative largely held to by mainstream politicians and media, but these explanations do not credibly account for what happened at the NSA, CIA and FBI in the years, months and weeks leading up to 9/11. This has been demonstrated by a number of researchers, but Kevin Fenton’s* book, Disconnecting the Dots, has the most comprehensive documentation and in-depth analysis to date. Primarily using the official reports, the available source records and some reporting by mainstream media and journalists, Fenton documents how specific CIA and FBI officials engaged in deliberate efforts to protect the 9/11 plot from discovery and disruption by FBI investigators, and that the most probable explanation is that this was done in order to enable the 9/11 attacks.

Two Days Before 9/11, Military Exercise Simulated Suicide Hijack Targeting New York by Kevin Fenton

A 9/11 Commission record released to the National Archives summarizes 28 NORAD exercise scenarios in the 3 years prior to 9/11 which involved hijacking. Many involved intercept/shadowing by fighter jets, at least 2 involved planes crashing into cities/buildings, & at least 3 involved shoot-downs, including a version of Vigilant Guardian in Oct 98.

Zelikow, NORAD False Testimony & 9/11 Commission Records – 3 Articles by Kevin Fenton

3 recent articles by Kevin Fenton:

The first 2 are based on a memo and an email chain in the 9/11 Commission records at the National Archives regarding the false statements made by NORAD officials to the 9/11 Commission, and the Commission’s response.

The 3rd article is based on a comment posted by ‘Philip Zelikow’, apparently the Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission, on the ‘Zelikow Caught in a Whopper article:
