John O'Neill: The Next Richard Clarke

The Asia Times brings more revelations.

John O'Neill was a leading FBI specialist on al-Qaeda up until July 2001 when, frustrated, he quit his government post and went to work as head of security for The World Trade Center. On September 11, O'Neill was killed during the WTC attacks. Why did O'Neill finally quit the FBI, even during times of heightening al-Qaeda activity? He, like Clarke, seemed to live to capture al-Qaeda terrorists. Wonder if someone will be able to provide his story? His wife, perhaps?
