Zacarias Moussaoui: FBI Agent Accuses Superiors of Criminal Neglect

Harry Samit, the FBI agent who arrested Moussaoui, has accused his superiors of criminal neglect. Harry said he was onto Moussaoui, and in fact, sent a 28 page report to his superiors requesting a search warrant that was denied.

The Richmond Times is reporting:

"The FBI agent's testimony is critical to the case. The defense contends the FBI knew plenty about Moussaoui's activities without his cooperation -- enough to thwart the 9/11 attacks.
Prosecutors say Moussaoui lied when he was arrested and that had he told the truth, authorities could have thwarted the attacks."

I can only think what a tragedy it is that we may have stopped 9-11, if Harry Samit's supervisors had oked his request for a search warrant. Hindsight is always 2o/20, but did Harry Samit present credible evidence to his supervisors at the time?

Harry Samit thinks so, but how many requests like these are denied for legitimate reasons?
