“If there had been a mechanism like Wikileaks, 9/11 could have been prevented,” Coleen Rowley, a former special agent/legal counsel at the FBI's Minneapolis division, told Raw Story in an exclusive interview.
"That's not even us," she told Raw Story. "That's not our personal opinion. We’re really reciting the conclusions of the 9/11 Commission that attributed the failures of 9/11 to a failure to share information not only inside agencies, not only between agencies, but with the public and the media."

She was one of three whistleblowers chosen as "Person of the Year" by TIME magazine.
"One of the reasons why the [website] existed with the 2.5 million documents shared at fairly low levels to even include privates was that was the conclusion of the 9/11 Commission – that 9/11 occurred due to a failure to share this information. So they were trying to share things as much as possible," she said.
In other words, the September 11 attacks succeeded only because the US government agencies were too "inept" to communicate with each other about what AL-QAEDA and MUSLIM TERRORISTS were doing. If Wikileaks had existed, we would all have known what AL-QAEDA and MUSLIM TERRORISTS were planning, in time to stop them. Because, as Assange knows, it's "annoying" that people still don't believe the USG's official story about the September 11 attacks.
Had Wikileaks existed, the US would not have invaded Iraq, although Hans Blix, Scott Ritter, many world leaders and record millions and millions of citizens pouring out into the streets around the globe weren't able to prevent it.
Had Wikileaks existed, the US would not have invaded Iraq, although Wikileaks is amplifying and echoing the exact same sort of false intelligence about Iran that had been used to "justify" the criminal assault against Iraq.
Just when everybody was feeling glum because the Obama campaign's promise of HOPE and CHANGE turned out to be a dud, along comes the Pied Piper of Wikileaks playing a fresh, new tune of HOPE and CHANGE and some (not all, not by a long shot) of us fall for it yet again.
