The Counter-Terrorist John O'Neill

Characterized as both a hero and a cad, John O'Neill was killed in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. John entered the F.B.I. in 1970 at the age of 18 and dedicated his life, some say obsessively, to counter-terrorism. But of of course, before 9/11, anyone that was truly dedicated was branded an obsessive. John was also branded with another name. Because his "obessively dedicated nature" made him supicious, abrasive, and inquisitive, he was also called "The Man Who Knows."

Read how American agencies, and diplomatic personnel dismissed the signs of al-Qaeda's growing involvememt and presence in the world.
