J. Michael Springmann, formerly chief of the visa section at the U.S. Embassy in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, explained in various interviews with European and Canadian media, that he rejected hundreds of suspicious visa applications in the late 90s, but the C.I.A. officers overruled him and ordered the visas to be issued. Springmann protested to the State Department, the Office of Diplomatic Security, the F.B.I., the Justice Department and congressional committees, but was told to shut up. Springmann observed that 15 of the 19 people who allegedly flew airplanes into buildings in the United States got their visas from the same CIA-dominated consulate in Jeddah. It all continued until http://www.911review.org/img/moin-www.gifMid 2001:
Since George Tenet was the head of the CIA during that time and it was reported he escorted Saudi nationals out of the country after 911 and later claimed Condi Rice did not take him seriously when he warned about an attack and then accused Bush of not heeding his warnings when democrats were in fact in agreement that Saddam had WMDs it seems there was a lot of complicity to foster the events as Clinton was leaving office.
