Did Tenet Hide Key 9/11 Info?

In an interview aired on Aug. 11 on a local PBS affiliate in Colorado, Clarke charges that Tenet and two other senior CIA officials, Cofer Black and Richard Blee, deliberately withheld information about two of the hijackers of American Airlines Flight 77 al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar. The two had entered the United States more than a year before the 9/11 attacks. ..........(more)
