First, the documents now shown on this web site are in fact the source
documents that come from the US government. The account of Ali Soufan
is an account dictated to Lawrence Wright by FBI Special Agent Steven
Bongardt, Soufan’s assistant on the Cole bombing. All of the
information in this account was vetted by John Miller, information
officer at the FBI. So this account can be considered to be the
official FBI record of the interaction between Soufan, his Cole
bombing investigating team, and the CIA and FBI HQ prior to the
attacks on 9/11.
This information conclusively demonstrates that the CIA had not only
criminally obstructed the FBI investigation of the USS Cole numerous
times, but then had sabotaged any chance FBI Agent Steven Bongardt
would have to be able to investigate and find Mihdhar and Hazmi in
time, when he was told that both Mihdhar and Hazmi were in the US and
knew they were going to take part in a horrific al Qaeda attack that
would kill thousands of Americans.
