LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Twenty years after the worst terrorist attack ever against the United States, Steven C. Markoff, author of The Case Against George W. Bush, reasserts that George W. Bush did not try to stop 9/11 from happening, despite Bush having received high-level intel that we would be attacked by Al-Qaeda. Mr. Markoff has never found the reason why George W. Bush didn't work to prevent the known imminent 9/11 attacks, but it's still clear to the author that Bush did not try.
"9/11 didn't need to happen, given the many warnings George W. Bush received that we would be attacked by Al-Qaeda," Mr. Markoff says. "Those pre-9/11 warnings came from people knowledgeable in terrorism and about Al-Qaeda. The sources of those warnings included outgoing president Bill Clinton, counterterrorism expert Richard Clarke, outgoing Clinton National Security Agency Advisers Sandy Berger and Don Kerrick, Director of the Counterterrorist Center Cofer Black, FBI Director Thomas Pickard, and Director of Central Intelligence George Tenet, who served under Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
“In addition, Bush was advised of forthcoming Al-Qaeda attacks by the CIA and in the President's Daily Brief. Even in the face of such warnings, Bush did nothing to try to defend our country from the attacks. He was too busy selling the never-found Iraqi WMD, and planning to take Iraqi oil," Mr. Markoff concludes.
Although 9/11 was the worst act of terrorism waged on United States soil in history, given the thousands of Americans who died that day and the many who would die from their heroic efforts trying to help in the fog of the twin towers collapsing, Mr. Markoff says that most people and even the media erroneously believe that 9/11 happened out of the blue, and therefore nothing could have been done to prevent it.
"Even the well-crafted Netflix series, 'Turning Point: 9/11 and the War on Terror,' begins with 9/11, as do most articles and discussions of that horrific day," Mr. Markoff explains. During his own three and a half years spent researching 130 published books, media and government documents, Mr. Markoff notes that he and his researchers found nothing to indicate that Bush tried to avert what would become 9/11.
"If our Justice Department looked at the frequent and powerful pre-9/11 warnings Bush had received, and that he did nothing about, he would at least be under indictment for criminal negligence, rather than looked at today as a benign statesman and artist."
