"If I walked up to you and said muslim extremists seek to hijack American airplanes - you would have said - what else is new?" Even the President's top national security advisors were called in to quell the storm of criticism. They say reports surrounding a possible terrorist attack were vague, with no reference to the timing of any attack, or specific targets. Condoleeza Rice/ National Security Advisor: I don t think anyone could have predicted anyone would take an airplane, turn it into a missile and slam it into the pentagon. Officials say airlines were told by the FAA to be on high alert. And to even watch out for a new generation of weapons that might allow terrorists to carry them out. These weapons might have been hidden inside: cell phones, key chains, even pens. Despite that, some critics says the unheeded warnings raise a red flag that the Intelligence community couldn't "connect the dots" to determine the REAL threat against the United States.
