Mehmet Eymur. [Source: Mehmet Eymur]Mehmet Eymur, a retired Turkish intelligence official, allegedly alerts the CIA to the imminent 9/11 attacks, but his warning is ignored. Eymur, the former head of the counterterrorism department of the Turkish National Intelligence Organization, will claim this in a book released in 2019. Eymur, who now lives in the US, has learned of the planned terrorist attacks from a Turkish drug dealer called Mustafa. He contacted the CIA yesterday and said he needed to have a meeting regarding an important issue, and the CIA agreed to see him at his home. Today, therefore, he is visited by two CIA officials. One of them is a woman he already knows; the other is a man he has never met before. Mustafa is waiting at a nearby hotel, at Eymur’s request, in case the CIA officials want to interview him. During his meeting with the CIA officials, Eymur passes on the information Mustafa has given to him. However, according to Eymur, they are uninterested in it. He will suggest in 2019 that the information might have prevented the 9/11 attacks, stating: “Forty days after the meeting, one of the deadliest terror attacks in the history of the United States occurred.… If Mustafa was taken seriously, maybe this incident would have been prevented.” American intelligence agencies contact Eymur after 9/11, the retired spy will write in his 2019 book, and he consequently puts the CIA and the FBI in touch with Mustafa. However, Mustafa will subsequently tell him that his meetings with the two agencies were unproductive due to language issues. [Demiroren News Agency, 6/14/2019]
