Many sources have claimed that George W.Bush signed an Executive Order, ordering Federal agents to "back off the bin Ladens" in the run up to Sept 11th. The alleged Executive Order in question seems to be W199I-WF-213589 but our investigations have been unable to find the text of this order. Indeed, that reference/number doesn't appear to be consistent with Presidential Executive Orders, which all appear to have a standard 5-digit reference.
According to investigations, the story is that former FBI director John O'Neil leaked the details of the Executive Order when he ran into successive road-blocks when chasing the tail of bin Laden. Due to Governmental obstacles in his mission to track down bin Laden, he was forced to quit the FBI. However, two weeks later he got a new job as head of Security at the World Trade Center. This was because John knew that bin Laden or some other terrorist would eventually attempt to attack the twin towers. However, on the second day of his new job, Sept 11th, O'Neil was killed whilst trying to rescue people in the south tower.
