The whole story has been woven between the ongoing politics between the American intelligence agency CIA and the security agency FBI. Nearly 8-10 years before the assault, the FBI anti terrorism unit fears some big plans of terrorists, but the CIA does not give them any information just because he feels that he will be beaten by receiving the information.
The FBI team constantly works on these things in South Asia. In the meanwhile, there are attacks on the American High Commission in Afghanistan, Libya and African countries.
The investigation goes forward and the strings connect directly to "al-Qaeda". Al-Qaeda constantly threatens to replace America, meanwhile, two Saudi nationals are sent to the US. Al-Qaeda allows its terrorists to enter the United States two to three years ago. With full planning
On the other hand, the CIA and FBI fail to realize the plans of terrorists even after knowing everything.
