Good taste, if I do say so myself.

The bulk of Fenton's book is devoted to CIA and FBI failures, and principally concerning the presence in the US of Almihdhar and Alhazmi.

If you are thinking that so much has been written on 9/11 and putative conspiracies surrounding the event, that it's almost superfluous to add yet another, think again.

Kevin Fenton has honed in on one of the weakest, most vulnerable aspects of the mainstream narrative about 9/11, and with the tenacity of a pit bull does not let go. Disconnecting the Dots is a convincing, extraordinarily researched and footnoted examination of the circumstances surrounding the pre-9/11 activities of two of the nineteen hijackers. In January 2000, Khalid Al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi attended an Al Qaeda planning meeting in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and then flew via Thailand on to Los Angeles a few weeks later. It is not disputed that the National Security Agency knew that at least Al-Mihdhar had a visa that indicated he was to enter the U.S. after the Malaysia conference. The information was passed on to the CIA's Alec Station, the special joint CIA-FBI task force organized to get Osama bin Laden.

What happened next is thoroughly examined by Fenton in his book. An FBI agent who sees the NSA cable asks to forward this information back to FBI HQ, but he is told to hold off by a female CIA officer known to us only as "Michael," and Alec Station's CIA Deputy Chief, Tom Wilshire. Later, "Michael" will draft a cable only days later claiming the Al-Mihdhar information was passed on to the FBI. But this was untrue.

These purported "mistakes" by the CIA's CounterTerrorism component and Alec Station -- at the behest of the CIA's Tom Wilshire, an FBI agent on the scene was forestalled in warning FBI superiors of Al-Mihdhar's U.S.

With all due respect to RT who hated the book without reading it because he perceived that it would not match his own theory about 9/11, this is a meticulously researched book full of good information. RT in his critique does a good job of explaining what the various camps are, and in fact I'm in the same camp he is. However, I still think that good information is good information. It can be interpreted in different ways. What this book shows is how absurd the series of intelligence failures leading up to 9/11 were. Now, you can interpret that as incompetence and bungling, or you can interpret it as an unfolding operation. So the fact that the author may not make the same interpretation you do does not mean he cannot do a good job of adding to your arsenal of facts, which you can perhaps spin in another direction.

Kevin Fenton's research is impeccable, and the truths he uncovers are serious. Whether you accept the whole cloth of the official explanation or you're a full on raving insider jobber, or anywhere in between, as long as you're serious about seeking information, this is undoubtedly a useful book. I agree in fact with JGold that it is indispensable.

Format: Paperback
To someone who is already convinced that the physical evidence of the 'collapses', initially of WTCs 1 & 2 and later WTC7 have not been properly explained or even addressed in the official reports, this book will reveal the extent to which a number of people within the US security services had prepared the 'open goal' to allow 9/11 to 'succeed'.
Rejoining the Disconnected Dots is moving apace with the recent meeting at the Toronto Hearings (September 8th - 11th 2011), that among other things is calling for a fresh inquiry to explain all the lies and obfuscations the contributors see in the official reports.
Kevin Fenton's work is a major exposee of the rather poor attempts to lie about the events leading up to 9/11 and provides hooks on which to hang other pieces of evidence, such as Scott Forbes' statement that his company was informed 3 weeks in advance, by the Port Authority, of a 30+ hour complete electricity 'power down' in WTC 2 over the weekend of 8th and 9th September 2001 - this fitting in precisely with the book's documenting of the timing of the highjackers decision on the date of the attack, closely followed by the resignation of John O'Niell from the FBI on 22nd August, and Ali Soufan's removal out of the loop to Yemen.

Note: this review has hyperlinks, which the Amazon post doesn't allow. One of this is a link to an interview I did w/ Kevin Fenton. You can find the review w/ links by going to my blog at 911reports.wordpress.com

"Enabling 9/11 was a job done at the office, with memos" (15).

It is a non-controversial fact that the NSA, CIA and FBI missed a number of opportunities to disrupt the 9/11 plot. Many, but not all, of these failures were documented by the four main investigations that dealt with pre-9/11 intelligence failures: those by the Congressional Joint Inquiry, the 9/11 Commission, the Department of Justice Inspector General and the CIA Inspector General. The best-known investigation, the 9/11 Commission, ultimately concluded that 9/11 was preceded by "four kinds of failures: in imagination, policy, capabilities, and management" (339). This is the narrative largely held to by mainstream politicians and media, but these explanations do not credibly account for what happened at the NSA, CIA and FBI in the years, months and weeks leading up to 9/11. This has been demonstrated by a number of researchers, but Kevin Fenton's* book, Disconnecting the Dots, has the most comprehensive documentation and in-depth analysis to date. Primarily using the official reports, the available source records and some reporting by mainstream media and journalists, Fenton documents how specific CIA and FBI officials engaged in deliberate efforts to protect the 9/11 plot from discovery and disruption by FBI investigators, and that the most probable explanation is that this was done in order to enable the 9/11 attacks.
