Suuporting NY Times Article
04 Oct 2001
WASHINGTON, Oct. 3 - Mohamed Atta, described by
law enforcement officials as the ringleader of the Sept. 11
hijackers, left a will in which he said he wanted to be buried "next to
good Muslims," with his corpse pointed east toward Mecca, the
officials said.

They said the will was found in a suitcase that Mr. Atta, a
33-year-old Egyptian, left at Logan Airport in Boston, where he
boarded an American Airlines jet that later slammed into the north
tower of the World Trade Center in New York, possibly with Mr.
Atta at the controls.

The will was dated April 1996, which would suggest that Mr. Atta
had been planning for years to die for Islam and that he wanted his
final actions to be understood as an effort to serve God.

At his funeral, "everybody should mention God's name and that I
died as a Muslim, which is God's religion," he wrote, adding that
"everyone who attends my funeral should ask that I will be forgiven
for what I have done in the past" - although "not this action."

The will was written in broken English. Details of its contents were first reported by the German magazine

Mr. Atta was a student in the mid- 1990's at a technical university in Hamburg, Germany, where he was
seeking a degree in urban planning.

Law enforcement officials would not say why Mr. Atta's luggage had
remained at Logan Airport, where he transferred onto the American Airlines
jet bound for Los Angeles after flying to Boston earlier that morning from
Portland, Me.

It was not clear if Mr. Atta had checked the bag only to Boston - in the
knowledge that its contents would be seized by the police after his death -
or if he intended the bag to make the connection and to be destroyed in the
crash. The suitcase also held a five-page letter in Arabic offering final instructions to the hijackers.

Friends and other students have said that while studying in Germany, Mr. Atta underwent a profound change
in his religious beliefs and temperament. He embraced Muslim fundamentalism and surrounded himself with
other devout followers.

Also today, administration officials confirmed that weeks before the terror attacks in New York and
Washington, Washington-based supervisors at the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of
Investigation turned down a request for a surveillance warrant for a Frenchman who is now being questioned
in New York about any knowledge he might have of the hijacking plot.

The man, Zacarias Moussauoi, was taken into custody in August after officials at a Minnesota flight school
warned the bureau that he was acting suspiciously.

Officials confirmed an account in Newsweek magazine that bureau agents in Minnesota had requested a
warrant to review his computer hard drive but that they had been turned down by Justice Department officials
in Washington. The Washington officials, they said, believed that the request did not provide enough evidence
to suggest a crime to support a warrant under terms of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

The officials would not confirm reports elsewhere that the drive was later inspected and found to contain
information about crop-dusters, which law enforcement officials have feared could be used by terrorists for
attacks with chemical or biological weapons.

Earlier this year, the judge who oversees enforcement of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act complained
to the Justice Department over whether prosecutors were presenting enough information to the court to justify

Government officials also offered new details today about negotiations several years ago between the United
States and Sudan in which the Sudanese government offered to turn over Osama bin Laden, who is reported
to be the mastermind of last month's terror attacks.

The officials said the United States turned down the 1996 offer because American prosecutors had little hard
evidence at the time to use against Mr. bin Laden. Details of the negotiations were first reported by The
Washington Post.

Mr. Atta's will made clear that he wanted his funeral to be carried out according to strict Muslim tradition.

"The people who will prepare my body should be good Muslims because this will remind me of God and his
forgiveness," he wrote. "Those who will sit beside my body must remember Allah, God, and pray for me to
be with the angels.

"When you bury me, the people with whom I will be buried should be good Muslims. I want to face east
toward Mecca."

There were detailed instructions for the preparation of his body before burial. He wanted only "good
Muslims" to wash his corpse, and he asked that his body then be wrapped in three pieces of white cloth "not
to be made from silk or expensive material." He asked that "the person who will wash my body near the
genitals must wear gloves on his hand so he won't touch my genitals."

Mr. Atta, said to be painfully shy around women throughout his life, asked that women play no role in his
funeral. "I don't want any women to go to my grave at all during my funeral or any occasion thereafter," he
wrote. "I don't want a pregnant woman or a person who is not clean to come and say goodbye to me
because I don't approve of it."

Law enforcement officials say they are continuing to search for evidence tying Mr. Atta to Mr. bin Laden,
who has long lived in exile in Afghanistan. During long, mostly unexplained absences from Germany in the
1990's, officials suspect, Mr. Atta may have traveled to the Middle East or Asia and had contact with
followers of Mr. bin Laden.

Officials said today that in 1996, Sudan offered to the United States to expel Mr. bin Laden and send him via
Saudi Arabia or another country to the United States.

At that time, American officials say, they had little hard proof against Mr. bin Laden that could be taken to a
grand jury. For example, they could not prove then that Sudanese officials or Mr. bin Laden had provided
training centers for international terrorists in the mid-1990's.

Moreover, they said, the United States did not trust Sudan to deliver on its promise, calling it part of a
meaningless charm offensive intended only to help Sudan get off the State Department's list of
terrorist-supporting states.
