// His study of the issues convinced him that something like the September 11 attacks was likely to occur.\\ Now why would that be? Because FBI field agent, Kenneth Williams, had urged a nationwide investigation into Arabs connected with extremist groups taking flying lessons [Arizona], because agents, Coleen Rowley and Harry Samit [Minnesota] had communicated the same, in their failed attempts [by HQ] to go after the 20th hijacker [from a field report: it's as if they are training to fly into the World Trade Center. . ], from similar reports from Florida, and previously, after the murder of Rabbi Kahane in New York City, the FBI had confiscasted files from the Arab assassin's apartment, and among those files were detailed plans for an attack on the WTC! [Should the phony Frontline ever do a real documentary, perhaps they might include such information along with the crimes of the CIA and DIA?]

An excellent FRONTLINE documentary.
It will make you mad and glad. . . mad that the F.B.I. and the diplomatic corp can't tolerate someone who makes waves (their term is "has sharp elbows") for a worthwhile purpose. . . and glad that we had someone like John O'Neill working for us, even though the establishment wouldn't listen to a smart man who didn't fit in their cookie-cutter mold.

FBI agent John O'Neill isn't the only one who knew that something like the September 11 attacks was likely to occur.
Some people working for the Bush Administration knew about it as well, but they were told not to touch the subject because the American Establishment didn't want to make the Arabs (including Osama Bin Laden) unhappy to continue their oil businesses with the Arabs.
If you want to know more about this, take a look at the film "Fahrenheit 9/11" directed by Michael Moore.
