NSA Lied About Knowledge Of 2 9/11 Hijackers In U.S., Didn’t Inform The FBI

For a long time now, I’ve been trying to figure out just exactly what the NSA knew about the hijackers and 9/11.
The main reason for this was because the 9/11 Commission barely looked at them, and the information they did come across tried to tie Iran to Al-Qaeda and 9/11. “[For executive director Philip] Zelikow and other staff on the commission, it was just more interesting—sexier—to concentrate on the CIA.”
In late 2003, the NSA will allow the 9/11 Commission access to its archives on Al-Qaeda. “[P]erversely, the more eager [NSA director] General Hayden was to cooperate, the less interested [9/11 Commission executive director Philip] Zelikow and others at the commission seemed to be in what was buried in the NSA files.”
Towards the end of the 9/11 Commission, “Zelikow would later admit he too was worried that important classified information had never been reviewed at the NSA and elsewhere in the government before the 9/11 commission shut its doors, that critical evidence about bin Laden’s terrorist network sat buried in government files, unread to this day. By July 2004, it was just too late to keep digging.”
Interesting, since he seems to be the main reason the 9/11 Commission stayed away from the NSA.
