Do you really think that bin Laden consulted Wolf Blitzer to figure out if he could get a box cutter on a plane?Yeah. That's why I said this:
Atta and the crew walked through metal detectors at the airport holding then-inconspicuous box cutters to figure out if it was going to work, and once it did, they probably stashed some inside so they wouldn't have to worry about being kept out the next time.
You didn't need MSNBC to figure out that the airports were insecure or that an airplane fueled up for a transatlantic flight will make a big explosion if you crash it into a skyscraper. In fact, I don't remember a single report on the likely outcome of such a scenario in any mainstream media source prior to 9/11.
Al-qaeda operatives spent time in our country while the 9/11 attacks were being planned and put into motion. We had a couple of them staying right here in Virginia Beach. They exploited our vulnerabilities by learning what they were. By CNN, FOXnews, MSNBC, etc. making it known that those vulnerabilities still exist, they are enabling further planning.
