This news from the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui – An FBI agent testified Tuesday the government ignored warnings that could possibly have prevented the 9/11 attacks. Greg Samit, who arrested Moussaoui in August 2001, said he spent four weeks trying to convince his superiors Moussaoui posed a security risk. According to Samit, the warnings were made at least seventy times, and FBI officials were even told of a specific threat of a plane attack on the World Trade Center. But Samit said his efforts were stonewalled. Samit blamed his superiors’ "obstructionism, criminal negligence and careerism" for blocking "a serious opportunity to stop the 9/11 attacks."

In Virginia Tuesday, the FBI was handed further embarrassment at the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui. The supervisor of the agency’s international terrorism division testified he had not read a memo delivered in August 2001 that recommended an investigation of Moussaoui as a possible hijacker. The testimony of Michael Rolince, now retired, came after Monday’s testimony from FBI agent Greg Samit that he spent four weeks trying to convince his superiors Moussaoui posed a security risk. According to Samit, FBI officials ignored his warnings.
