Former CIA official: 9/11 could not be averted

A top former CIA official said the intelligence agency had more than 100 Afghans acting as spies before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, but told a magazine in a rare interview that nothing could have averted the attacks.

Cofer Black, the former head of the CIA's counterterrorism center, said that looking back, he can't think of a thing "we could have done that would have changed anything."
