In Plain Sight

The recent release of a declassified CIA report adds disturbing new details to an already extensive public record of September 11-related failures. The report describes how the CIA never developed a comprehensive plan to stop al Qaeda, and missed crucial opportunities to thwart two hijackers before September 11 2001. The details of the errors in that report echo exclusive information obtained by Al Jazeera reporter Yosri Fouda in 2002.

In April 2002 Fouda conducted the first and only interview with the two main planners of the September 11 attacks. Fouda was blindfolded and taken to a hideaway in Karachi, Pakistan where he met Khaled Sheikh Mohamad and Ramzi Bin Al-Shibh. In the interview he obtained the first full admission by Al Qaeda that they had carried out the 9-11 attacks.

Through exclusive information from that interview, Al Jazeera was able to track the movements of the hijackers in their countdown to their mission of death - and it became apparent how much the United States had failed to detect and prevent what Al Qaeda called its 'Planes' Operation'.

From a high-level Al Qaeda summit held in Kuala Lumpur in 2000, to intelligence disregarded by both American and European security services proving an attack was imminent, Fouda's investigation makes clear there was a litany of astonishing mistakes by the CIA in the run-up to the September 11 attacks.

In Plain Sight is an extraordinary account of the cover-up and complicity of US intelligence in the run-up to 9/11 - with exclusive footage of the hijackers preparing for their suicide mission.

In Plain Sight airs from Friday 07th September 2007 at the following times GMT:

In Plain Sight - sounds like merely a counter show to the endless bragging of similarly mindless US produced TV crap.
