|In early 2001, at the start of Mr. Bush's presidency, his Government's Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema) warned that a hurricane hitting New Orleans would be the deadliest of the three most likely catastrophes facing America; the others were a massive San Francisco earthquake and, prophetically, a terrorist attack on New York.

Click HERE for a RealAudio recording of a statement made by FEMA spokesman Tom Kenney to Dan Rather on Wednesday, September 12th, 2001. In this interview, Kenney states that FEMA was deployed to New York on Monday night, September 10th, to be ready to go into action on Tuesday morning, September 11th.
Needless to say, this recording caused quite a stir. The official reaction was Kenney was simply confused about the dates.
However, on the recording Kenney is complaining about not getting full access to the site until "today". Kenney talks about a Monday, a Tuesday, and "today". That's three days.
If the above recording was made on Wednesday, September 12th as claimed, then the explanation that Kenney was simply confused about the days doesn't work, because there is one more day than can be accounted for.
Some news sources went to great lengths to dismiss Kenney's remarks...
...but the cover story was blown when Rudolph Guliani testified before the 9/11 Commission:
The eyewitness in the following C-SPAN video states that FEMA were at the towers before the collapses, and an FBI agent indicated to him the buildings were going to "come down":
The following videos show a large convoy of trucks heading through New York on 9/11 to assist in the WTC wreckage clean up, and dump trucks arriving immediately after the collapse of WTC 7:
All of the above raises an interesting point.
Back in 2005 Hurricane Katrina was known to be headed into New Orleans days in advance and its potential damage was known and understood years ahead of time, yet this event threw the US Government into total confusion. In contrast, the aftermath of 9/11 was well coordinated, and this strongly suggests the attacks and collapses were an expected event.
