The current New Yorker has a riveting article on investigations into Al Q'aeda prior to 9/11. Whether it could have been stopped can never be known. But the article details leads which the FBI had which might have done so had the CIA not refused to share information with them. The New Yorker article is, alas, not online. Worth a trip to the newsstand or the library, though. For a taste of it, there is an interview with the author here.

Fascinating stuff.
