Coleen Rowley is a whistleblower who exposed the FBI's cover-up of the information from the Minneapolis FBI field office that might have prevented the 9/11 attacks. When she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in June of 2002, she found no one was interested in the truth she had to tell.[1]


“I began a long time ago right after 9/11 being appalled by the fact that this cover-up was beginning, and then seeing this so-called war on terror began, and again had very little connection to what I knew what was behind that the terrorist attacks, and seeing "terrorism" grow. In the world right now if we wanted to be safer you do something, but you don’t do something that makes the problem worse.”
Coleen Rowley [2]


"Coleen Rowley brought several of the pre 9/11 lapses to light and testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee on some of the endemic problems facing the FBI and the intelligence community."[3]
