An FBI agent who questioned Zacarias Moussaoui in Minnesota before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks testified today he warned officials in Washington that he believed Moussaoui was intent on hijacking an airplane capable of reaching the nation's capital but that his requests for help were rejected.
FBI agent Harry Samit said he told his superiors at FBI headquarters that he believed Moussaoui had been planning to hijack a plane traveling from London to New York and that 'if he seizes the aircraft, it will have enough fuel to reach D.C.' Samit said he urged the FBI to warn the Secret Service, but that FBI officials refused and ordered him not to contact the Secret Service or Federal Aviation Administration.
UPDATE: Criminal negligence? Wow - strong words. Wonder why those words didn't show up in that faked 9/11 Comission Whitewash Report?
