Jason Leopold, Truth-Out.org: Former Counterterrorism Czar Accuses Tenet, Other CIA Officials of Cover-Up
. . . And now, in a stunning new interview made available to Truthout and set to air on a local PBS affiliate in Colorado tonight, former counterterrorism czar Richard Clarke, for the first
time, levels explosive allegations against three former top CIA officials – George Tenet, Cofer Black and Richard Blee – accusing them of knowingly withholding intelligence from the Bush and Clinton White House, the FBI, Immigration and the State and Defense Departments about two of the 9/11 hijackers who had entered the United States more than a year before the attacks. Moreover, Clarke says the former CIA officials likely engaged in a cover-up by withholding key details about two of the hijackers from the 9/11 Commission.
«They’ve been able to get through a joint House investigation committee and get through the 9/11 Commission and this has never come out,» Clarke said about Blee, Tenet and Black. «They got away with it.»
