August 26, 2011 by legitgov

C.I.A. Demands Cuts in Book About 9/11 and Terror Fight 26 Aug 2011 In what amounts to a fight over who gets to write the history of the Sept. 11 attacks and their aftermath, the Central Intelligence Agency is demanding extensive cuts from the memoir of a former F.B.I. agent who spent years near the center of the battle against Al Qaeda [al-CIAduh]. The agent, Ali H. Soufan, argues in the book that the C.I.A. missed a chance to derail the 2001 plot by withholding from the F.B.I. information about two future 9/11 hijackers living in San Diego, according to several people who have read the manuscript. And he gives a detailed, firsthand account of the C.I.A.'s move toward brutal treatment in its interrogations, saying the harsh methods torture used on the agency's first important captive, Abu Zubaydah, were unnecessary and counterproductive.

According to the notes, which were authenticated by a meeting participant, the Perry administration wanted to help Wall Street investors gamble on how long retired Texas teachers would live. Perry was promising the state big money in exchange for helping Swiss banking giant UBS set up a business of teacher death speculation.

Leaked Cable: McCain, Lieberman Promised Qaddafi to Help Secure Military Equipment From U.S. 24 Aug 2011 For all the braying by the Senate's top three hawks about how the U.S. wasn't doing enough to oust Libyan dictator Col.

According to a leaked August 2009 U.S. diplomatic cable released by WikiLeaks recounting the Senators' junket, the neoconservative Connecticut Senator captured the dynamic of aligning with Qaddafi: Lieberman called Libya an important ally in the war on terrorism, noting that common enemies sometimes make better friends.
