SIMPLE CHOICE: TIA OR KIA:

'13' CYBER CLUES TO 9/11 PILOT (NILES LATHEM, February 14, 2006, NY Post)

An active-duty military intelligence analyst has told congressional investigators that 9/11 pilot Mohamed Atta surfaced 13 times in a controversial Pentagon computer program before he executed the attacks, The Post has learned.

Congressional sources said last night that an officer in the Pentagon's secretive Land Information Warfare Center told the staff of Rep. Curt Weldon (R-Pa.) about the computer hits.

The revelation is significant because the 9/11 commission has asserted that Atta was not on the intelligence community's radar screen before the attacks.

This story is going to bite someone in the hind-quarters, big-time. It might be Bill & Hill, or Janet Reno, or George Tenet, or Al Gore, or Condi, it might even be Curt Weldon, but it isn't going to go away. Especially if some of the data is out there.

John:

Yes, if you don't want TIA then you have to accept the resulting KIAs.
