US Planned War on Terror in 92 Countries After 9/11

Four days after the September 11, 2001 attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center twin towers, the US Central Intelligence Agency had put together a vast plan to “fight terror” in 92 countries, a newly-released 2005 letter by then CIA director George Tenet revealed on Friday.
“On September 15, 2001, the chief of CTC [CIA Counterterrorism Center] and I presented the president of the United States [George W. Bush] with a plan to attack Al-Qaeda in its Afghanistan sanctuary and a worldwide plan that covered 92 countries,” the letter read, Sputnik reported.
The letter was part of a cache of previously classified documents, including a nearly 500-page CIA Inspector General’s report that documented many “systemic problems” in the US intelligence services before September 11 attacks.
Tenet served as director of the CIA from July 1997 until July 2004, and was the second longest-serving director in the agency’s history next to Allen Dulles. He was appointed by then president Bill Clinton and retained the position under George W. Bush.
