Additionally -- besides about every nation reporting to us that terrorists were planning to a strike against us -- the Russians had a lot of information that they were putting in front of the White House and our intelligence agencies -- but what they kept seeing was Bush's "Operation Ignore."
The Russians had a lot of specific information about the hijackers and their plans.
Finally, the Russians went to the United Nations Security Council with their information and concerns.
In AUGUST just before the attacks, the United Nations sent representatives to the White House and to our various intelligence agencies to repeat the information -- to be sure that the US had the information.
Guess it got misplaced . . .
