    Documents show the U.S. was given more warnings about potential terrorist attacks in the weeks leading up to 9/11, writes Vanity Fair contributing editor Kurt Eichenwald in a New York Times op-ed.

    The documents predate the presidential daily briefing on Aug. 6, 2001, which said, Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.

    The administrations reaction to what Mr. Bush was told in the weeks before that infamous briefing reflected significantly more negligence than has been disclosed, he wrote. In other words, the Aug. 6 document, for all of the controversy it provoked, is not nearly as shocking as the briefs that came before it.

    I think a fair assessment would show that similar non-specific warnings are given on a weekly if not daily basis. They did not name a target or identify the attackers.

    After the first WTC bombing in the 90s, we knew bin Laden and his team of terror was a threat.

    But knowing there is a risk and knowing exactly what the risk is - and what day it's going to occur are two very different things.

    Bin Laden threatening the US was a daily occurrence. There are still terrorist cells around this country looking for the opening to attack. Knowing how, when, and where is another story.

    This article was written with one sole purpose, to catch interest to get you to buy his book.

    "Eichenwald wrote a book, “500 Days: Secrets and Lies in the Terror Wars,” describing the intelligence briefings and actions taken by the Bush administration before and after the 9/11 terrorist attacks."
