Commission to release '98 PDB
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The commission investigating the Sept. 11 attacks will release a 1998 CIA document to then President Bill Clinton that warned of possible hijackings of airliners and will discuss al Qaeda links to Iran in its report, government officials said on Friday.
The bipartisan commission has been investigating government failures related to the 2001 hijacked plane attacks, in which nearly 3,000 people died, and is expected to release its final report next week.
Included in the report will be a declassified version of a 1998 President's Daily Brief, a highly secret document that only a select group of government officials ever see.
It will be the second such document to be made public under commission pressure.
