CIA demands cuts in book about 911
A former Arab speaking CIA agent, Ali Soufan who was a counter terrorist agent from
1997-2005 wrote a book which says the CIA knew about to future hijackers living in
California and missed the chance to stop 911 but withheld info from the FBI. He also
mentioned the torture techniques that they used and claimed they were unproductive
at that time.
I posted a thread earlier in the year about Jesse Ventura, former Navy Seal,
mayor, guv of Minn and pro wrestler being on CNN about his book which
he claims has documents that the gov't knew about the terrorists. he said
it is just fishy that someone living in a cave could do what the Russians
could do in 45 years - bomb the US.
BTW, the host really grilled Ventura who got a little hot but when he had
Lopez, the famous actor/comedian on, he handled him with kid gloves
and said lets get your views on politics. He asked him some soft
questions about his divorce.
It wouldn't be the first time CIA withheld info from the FBI.
Is there something to all this?
The agency has told the author and his atty the do not want the book published
so they go to the Times.

Here's Jesse writing and discussing it before the agent did.
