[Michael: I'm very discriminating of and skeptical about 9/11 research as it often leads to the "rabbit hole" effect (we fall down it like Alice and there is no way out). On the other hand, this three part interview with Paul Thompson, the author of the Terror Timeline and contributor at History Commons, is a very useful and relevant outline of what has been documented about the events leading up to 9/11.]
Boiling Frogs with Sibel Edmonds and Peter B. Collins
This is Part I of our three-part one-of-a-kind interview series with author and researcher Paul Thompson. For additional background information please visit the complete 9/11 Timeline Investigative Project at HistoryCommons and Richard Clarke’s interview by John Duffy and Ray Nowosielski at SecrecyKills.Com
Paul Thompson joins us to discuss the latest revelations by former counterterrorism czar Richard Clarke and his explosive allegations against three former top CIA officials – George Tenet, Cofer Black and Richard Blee – accusing them of knowingly withholding intelligence about two of the 9/11 hijackers, Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar, who had entered the United States more than a year before the attacks. He provides us with the most comprehensive history and context to date on Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar, who hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 with three other terrorists and flew the jetliner directly into the Pentagon killing 189 people. Mr. Thompson takes us through a mind-boggling journey through the Yemen Hub, the highly critical Malaysia Summit, Thailand, USS Cole bombing, CIA’s Alec Station, NSA, FBI and beyond!
