You get to a point where it gets very complex, where you have money laundering activities, drug related activities, and terrorist support activities converging at certain points and becoming one.
We need to stop saying we can't rock this boat when it needs to be rocked.
It came from counter-intelligence, and certain criminal investigations, and issues that have to do with money laundering operations.
I'm taken back by seeing the mass media's reaction to this. They are the window to our government's operation and what are they doing
I started working for the Bureau immediately after 911 and I was performing translations for several languages Farsi, Turkish, and Azerbaijani.
I see people detained for simple INS violations.
However, the names of people from other countries, and semi-legit organizations from other countries, to this day, have not been made public.
Could we have prevented in 100 certainty I don't think anything is that certain. However, we would have had a very, very good chance for preventing it.
And, believe me they will do everything to cover this up.
And, again, I was asked not to take this any further and just let it be. And if I didn't do that they would retaliate against me.
And they asked me to take a polygraph as to the allegations and reports I'd made. I volunteered and I took the polygraph and passed it without a glitch.
And after I started working for the Bureau, most of my translation duties included translations of documents and investigations that actually started way before 911.
The most significant information that we were receiving did not come from counter-terrorism investigations, and I want to emphasize this.
The only people I have seen who have been truly pushing for the truth are the family members.
I understand the Saudis have been named because fifteen of the nineteen hijackers were from Saudi Arabia.
And what happens is, instead of targeting those people who are directly related to these illegal terrorist activities, they just let them walk free.
The information I requested under the Freedom of Information Act has been blocked for two years.
However, I keep reminding them that this issue is not a new issue that has come out for this election. This issue has been in the courts for two years and two months now.
That goes to the heart of the matter The media, as I said is the window to the government, and that window has turned into a wall.
And you see many people just turning away from these channels of mass media, and they're just turning in to alternative providers, because they just see what's happening.
During my work there I came across some very significant issues that I started reporting in December of 2001 to the mid-level management within the FBI.
When you think of al-Qaeda, you are not thinking of al-Qaeda in terms of one particular country, or one particular organization.
On the other hand I have seen several, several top targets for these investigations of these terrorist activities that were allowed to leave the country - I'm not talking about weeks, I'm talking about months after 911.
But I can tell that once, and if, and when this issue gets to be, under real terms, investigated, you will be seeing certain people that we know from this country standing trial and they will be prosecuted criminally.
We have to remind the people Congress has the constitutional obligation and public responsibility to oversee these issues and the Department of Justice's operations.
