Submission + - Wiki editor helps reveal pre-9/11 CIA mistakes->

An anonymous reader writes: Kevin Fenton was reading the Department of Justice's 2004 Inspector General report on pre-9/11 intelligence failures. Parts of it didn't make sense to him, so he decided to add the information in the report to Paul Thompson's 9/11 timeline at the wiki-style website History Commons. Eventually, Fenton's work led him to uncover the identity of a CIA manager who ran the Bin Ladin unit before 9/11, when agents there deliberately withheld information about two 9/11 hijackers from the FBI. That manager was named Richard Earl Blee and he is now the subject of a documentary by Ray Nowosielski and John Duffy, of secrecykills.org, who confirmed his identity using journalism techniques right out of the 70s film "All the President's Men". Blee, along with Cofer Black and George Tenet, have found the work disturbing enough to release a joint statement denying some of the allegations.
