Families of 9/11 victims outraged over pre-attack FAA warnings

(02/10/05) EDISON ? Many New Jersey families who lost loved ones on September 11th say they are outraged after learning the Federal Aviation Administration received several pre-9/11 terrorist activity warnings.

A new report states the FAA received 52 warnings between April 2001 and the days leading up to the terrorist attacks. According to the new information, the warnings included information about al-Qaida threats and possible suicide attacks involving airplanes.

Families affected by the tragedy are now wondering how many lives could have been saved if the FAA had acted differently. Despite their anger over the report, many families say the only thing they can do is move forward and remember the deceased.

A spokeswoman for the FAA says the pre-attack warnings offered ?no specific information that could have averted the attacks."
