Clinton & Bush may have ordered a stand-aside policy allowing Mohamed Atta to make 9-11 happen (IF indeed Mohamed Atta ever even boarded that plane).

16. International Herald Tribune, August 30, 2002, p.1: ‘Sept.11 plot is detailed in German case’, by Peter Finn (originally a Washington Post article):
17. The Associated Press, Oct.22, 2002, 08:21 ET: ‘Lawyer: Suspect Attended Afghan Camp’, by David Rising:
SINCE 1996: "The FBI had been developing evidence that international terrorists were using U.S. flight schools to learn to fly jumbo jets. A foiled plot in Manila to blow up U.S. airliners and later court testimony by an associate of Mr. Bin Laden’s HAD TOUCHED OFF FBI INQUIRIES AT SEVERAL SCHOOLS, OFFICIALS SAY."
Let us note this for later dot-connection.
1992 - 2000: in this time frame, whether continuously or not I don’t know, Mohamed Atta (the alleged ringleader of the Sept.11 hijackers) lives in Hamburg, Germany, and while living there he gets involved with Al Qaeda - according to Spanish judge Baltasar Garzon.
What connects Spanish judge Baltasar Garzon with Atta? The reported facts that:
- Garzon had 8 Qaedas arrested in Spain in November 2001 for playing "a direct role in the preparation of the Sept.11 attacks";
- Atta "twice visited Spain, in January and July 2001…It is now believed that on those trips he met with some of the…members of a Qaeda cell";
- Judge Garzon’s account is based in part ON YEARS OF TELEPHONE INTERCEPTS [my caps]. The document [judge Garzon’s detention order] makes clear that Spanish intelligence has been WATCHING MR. YARKAS [Qaeda leader in Spain] AND LISTENING TO HIM IN HIS INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER SUSPECTED QAEDA OPERATIVES AROUND EUROPE AND ASIA SINCE AT LEAST 1997 [my caps]."
Now, Clinton/Bush, here’s my first set of questions for you on this story:
- Since Spain is a U.S. ally, HAD SPANISH INTELLIGENCE TOLD YOU, AS WOULD HAVE BEEN ONLY NATURAL, THAT THEY HAD BEEN WATCHING/EAVESDROPPING ON THE QAEDA YARKAS SINCE 1997?
- As "Spanish intelligence had been watching Mr. Yarkas…since at least 1997"; and as Atta, now believed to have been a ringleader, logically would have wanted to meet his counterpart in Spain, Yarkas; was Spanish intelligence watching Yarkas, and therefore Atta too, when Atta met Qaedas in Spain in January and July 2001?
Spanish judge mr Garzon, will you finally tell humanity if, as it is logical to assume, Yarkas was among the Qaedas that Mohamed Atta met in January and July 2001?
If so, was the meeting shadowed and eavesdropped on, as you had been shadowing and eavesdropping on Yarkas since 1997?
And will you tell us, judge Garzon, if Spanish intelligence flagged the meeting, and Atta’s name, to U.S. authorities in January and July 2001?
CLINTON/BUSH: TESTIFY UNDER OATH ON THESE VERY SAME POINTS!
It is utterly implausible, it is utterly unreasonable to think that Spain, a Western U.S. ally, wouldn’t have informed the U.S. about a meeting of Qaedas.
let’s focus on the "telephone intercepts". On the "YEARS OF TELEPHONE INTERCEPTS BY THE SPANISH AUTHORITIES [my caps]". Let us focus on the all-important detail that "the document [judge Garzon’s detention order for the Qaedas of Spain] makes clear that Spanish intelligence had been watching Mr. Yarkas [the Spain Qaeda ringleader] AND LISTENING TO HIS INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER SUSPECTED QAEDA OPERATIVES AROUND EUROPE…SINCE AT LEAST 1997 [my caps]". This means that Spanish intelligence was listening in on whatever Yarkas AND THOSE HE SPOKE WITH OVER THE PHONE said between "at least 1997" and Sept.10, 2001. And this is reported to be part of the evidence linking Spanish Qaeda (with Yarkas) to "THE PREPARATION OF THE SEPT.11 ATTACKS [my caps]".
Let’s read on: "The revelation marks the first direct connection made between the Sept.11 plotters, including a Hamburg-based group led by a key-figure in the hijackings, MOHAMED ATTA [my caps] and a string of Islamic terrorist cells in Europe".
"Spanish officials also said that the NAME AND PHONE NUMBER OF THE ALLEGED LEADER OF THE QAEDA NETWORK IN SPAIN,…YARBAS [sic, = Yarkas as my other related source shows], APPEARED IN A DOCUMENT SEIZED DURING THE SEARCH OF AN APARTMENT OF A SUSPECTED BIN LADEN ASSOCIATE IN HAMBURG AFTER SEPT.11 [my caps]." "MR. YARKAS’S PHONE NUMBER WAS FOUND BY THE GERMAN POLICE IN THE HAMBURG APARTMENT BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN USED BY TWO OF THE HIJACKERS AND SEVERAL OTHER ISLAMIC TERRORISTS TO PLOT THE SEPT.11 ATTACKS, JUDGE GARZON’S [detention] ORDER SAYS. IT [Garzon’s order] LISTS AMONG MR. YARKAS’S EUROPEAN ‘CONTACTS’ FOUR OF THE HAMBURG APARTMENT OCCUPANTS, INCLUDING MR. ATTA, WHO PILOTED THE PLANE THAT HIT THE FIRST WORLD TRADE CENTER TOWER [my caps]."
Sources 14 and 15: July 2002 reports point to the previously unknown fact that GERMANY TOO HAD HAD THE HAMBURG QAEDA CELL TO WHICH ATTA BELONGED UNDER SURVEILLANCE FOR YEARS, BEFORE 911.
"Mohammed Atta and other hijackers [Marwan Al Shehhi and Ziad Samir Jarrah] were members of a group in Hamburg THAT WAS UNDER SOME SURVEILLANCE FROM 1999 [my caps]."
"German intelligence officials said today [July 10, 2002] that they first noticed Mr. Zammar AS EARLY AS 1997 [caps I], when they received reports that he had once fought in Afghanistan and THAT HE HAD TIES TO MR. BIN LADEN […], ‘WE […] KEPT WATCH ON HIM’ [caps me], said a senior intelligence official in Hamburg".
Recapping so far: very interestingly, Germany had a Bin Laden man, Zammar, under watch from 1997.
Why is Zammar so important?
Mohamed Heidar Zammar (spelled Mohammed Haydar by source 16) is "a German citizen born in Syria who was expelled from Morocco and then arrested in Syria last October ".
Actually, the Moroccans reportedly blocked him under US prodding and deported him to Syria.
Now the story gets a bit complex but it’s worth pursuing.
Allegedly, Americans and Germans in late 1998 were investigating a fellow Mamdouh Mahmud Salim, "considered a founder of Al Qaeda and suspected of being the financial chief for Osama Bin Laden."
Salim was arrested in 1998 over the bombings of US embassies in East Africa. "He awaits trial in New York" (4 years later!).
Enter another Syrian living in Germany: Mahmoud Darkazanli, who "had power of attorney over Salim’s Hamburg bank account".
Darkazanli says he’s innocent.
Anyway, the Germans put him too under surveillance though source 14 does not say when.
So, presumably by the end of 1998, Germany had 2 suspected Qaedas under surveillance: Zammar and Darkazanli.
Now, the monitoring of Darkazanli and Zammar "led to the Al Quds mosque, a gathering place for militants in Hamburg. Along with Mr. Darkazanli, the police discovered that his friend Mr. Zammar was a frequent visitor at the modest mosque".
"American investigators say they view Mr. Zammar, 41, as a central figure in the Sept.11 plot".
"’Darkazanli and Zammar were the recruiters working out of that mosque and bringing people into the Islamic extremist cell’ said an American official".
Quite an interesting mosque indeed, this Hamburg Al-Quds in 1999/2000.
Its imam, a fellow Fazazi, allegedly preached amenities such as that "Christians and Jews should have their throats slit".
"Fazazi, as an imam, was a public figure, and videotapes of his message were openly on sale [at the nearby Attawhid bookstore]".
The Germans must have known about Fazazi’s hate preaching since late 1998, because they were shadowing Zammar + Darkazanli into that mosque.
Moreover, the Germans "had a general lookout on the mosque" at the time.
Yet Fazazi came to German attention allegedly only in … July 2002!
How weird. How implausible.
Summing up so far: in 1998 and 1999 the Germans knew that 2 suspected terrorists, Zammar and Darkazanli, , were attending a Hamburg mosque called Al Quds where the two recruited militants who were at the same time brainwashed into believing in slitting judeochristian throats by the local imam, Fazazi (who "left Hamburg before Sept.11", "possibly for Morocco").
But there’s a lot more to this story.
The alleged eight 911 plotters of the "Hamburg cell" (Mohamed Atta, reportedly an Egyptian, alleged pilot of AA11, WTC; Marwan Al-Shehhi, reportedly from the United Arab Emirates, alleged pilot of UA175, WTC; Ziad Samir Jarrah, reportedly a Lebanese, alleged pilot of UA93, Pennsylvania; Ramzi Binalshibh, reportedly a Yemeni, alleged coordinator for 911, reportedly arrested in Pakistan on Sept.11, 2002; Said Bahji, ‘a German citizen of Moroccan origin’; Zakariya Essabar, reportedly a Moroccan; Mounir Motassadeq, reportedly another Moroccan; Abdelghani Mzoudi, another Moroccan. All the aforementioned are allegedly either dead or in jail, except for Bahji and Essabar) ARE KNOWN TO HAVE ATTENDED THE MOSQUE IN 1998 AND 1999 BEFORE ATTA’S DEPARTURE FOR THE US IN 2000 [my caps]".
Therefore we may reasonably assume that Atta & co. may have been recruited by Zammar & Darkazanli and fanaticized by Fazazi’s paranoid rantings.
"Recruited into Al Qaeda by a German-Syrian, Mohammed Haydar Zammar, the Hamburg cell slowly coalesced around Atta between 1996 and 1999. "
But Zammar led the Germans much more directly to Atta’s cell.
"On Feb.17, 1999, Mr. Zammar visited the apartment on Marienstrasse in Hamburg where the students lived. There, he met with the residents - Mr. Atta and 2 other men implicated in planning the  attacks, Ramzi bin al-Shibh and Said Bahji […]. The police PUT THE APARTMENT ON THEIR WATCH LIST [my caps], but did not follow up and identify the three men".
What a convenient alibi for the police: how implausible, how totally absurd that they would have put on their watch list an apartment attended by a terrorist suspect (Zammar) without bothering to identify the residents.
So far: by Feb.17, 1999, the Germans knew all about a center of Islamic extremism in Hamburg: the Al Quds mosque; its rabid imam Fazazi; 2 terrorist suspects linked to Bin Laden who were allegedly recruiting militants in that mosque (Zammar + Darkazanli); a Marienstrasse apt. where Zammar had paid a visit - Atta & co.’s apt. The apartment of 3 future (alleged) 911 hijackers: Atta, Al-Shehhi, Jarrah, who had 5 helpers (Ramzi bin al-Shibh, Said Bahji [variously spelled Bahaji], Mounir Motassadeq, Zakariya Essabar and Abdelghani Mzoudi).
On with the show.
At this point (Feb. 1999) the Americans allegedly got mad at the Germans who refused to bust Zammar + Darkazanli.
Therefore, "American investigators took matters into their own hands. […] The German police discovered that American agents had been questioning people in Hamburg about Mr. Darkazanli and Mr. Zammar".
Did these Americans find out about Marienstrasse & its residents too?
Anyway: "A senior German intelligence official said that the light surveillance of the Marienstrasse apartment suggested that Mr. Atta and the others were inconspicuous students."
"Inconspicuous students": really?
Since when do "inconspicuous students" receive visits by terrorist suspects?
Since when do "inconspicuous students" attend mosques whose imams preach the throat-slitting of Jews and Christians?
Moreover, "Atta came to Hamburg as a university students in 1992", "like some of the other conspirators": were they still "students" in 1999 - 7 years later?
How about Atta’s and his co-residents’ German visa status in 1999/2000?
Source 16: "According to [Kay] Nehm [Germany’s chief federal prosecutor], Shehhi [flight UA175, WTC] had a conversation with an unidentified librarian sometime in April or May 2000 [well over 1 year before 911], in which HE SPECIFICALLY MENTIONED THE WORLD TRADE CENTER AS A TARGET. ‘THERE WILL BE THOUSANDS OF DEAD’, SHEHHI […]TOLD THE FEMALE LIBRARIAN, ACCORDING TO NEHM. ‘YOU WILL ALL THINK OF ME’. " [my caps].-
Talk about ‘inconspicuous students’!!
"The librarian came forward as a witness, according to federal prosecutor’s office, which declined to identify her or say when she provided the information. "
Well mr Nehm: humanity has a right to learn WHEN that alleged librarian allegedly reported Shehhi’s alleged boasts: because if the librarian came forward before 911 and you kept it to yourself, then you are guilty of complicity in the 911 attacks.
But it must also be noted that the anonymous-librarian story stinks to high heaven of concoction fabricated to validate the zero-evidence claim that Shehhi and another 18 hijackers hijacked 4 planes that morning.
Because: why would a terrorist like Shehhi want to reveal the 911 secret to a librarian, thus sabotaging the whole plot? This would have been patently absurd.
Any answers, mr Nehm?
Clearly, the German authorities are more likely to be lying than not.
ANY ANSWERS, MR SCHROEDER?
Now, let’s sum up and draw some probable conclusions:
1. Spanish intelligence had been tapping Yarkas’s phone line since 1997;
2. Yarkas was in touch with a Hamburg Islamist cell that included Atta;
3. German police confirmed this when they searched the Hamburg apartment reportedly AFTER Sept.11;
4. but Spanish intelligence knew of the Madrid/Hamburg Qaeda link BEFORE Sept.11, from eavesdropping on and shadowing Yarkas;
5. German authorities had investigated Atta and other Hamburg fundamentalists from late 1998 through early 2000;
6. let’s add the 2 Atta trips to Madrid in January and July 2001.
I THINK THAT AT THIS POINT ONE OUGHT TO LEGITIMATELY ASK THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS:
1. SPANISH PRIME MINISTER MR AZNAR, WHY ON EARTH DIDN’T YOU INFORM GERMAN POLICE AND THE U.S. ABOUT THE MADRID/HAMBURG QAEDA NETWORK BEFORE SEPT.11?
2. OR DID YOU, MR AZNAR?
3. GERMAN CHANCELOR MR SCHROEDER, WILL YOU PROCEED TO TESTIFY? DID OR DIDN’T AZNAR INFORM YOU? AND IF HE DID, AS IT WAS THE ONLY LOGICAL OPTION BETWEEN ALLIES, WHY DIDN’T YOU INFORM THE US THAT YOU HAD PLACED ALL THE HAMBURG APARTMENT OCCUPANTS INCLUDING ATTA UNDER SURVEILLANCE?
SO WILL YOU FINALLY, SCHROEDER, TESTIFY UNDER OATH AND ON PRIME TIME CNN AS TO WHETHER YOU TOLD CLINTON ABOUT ATTA’S GROUP IN 1999/2000?
IT’S HIGHLY IMPLAUSIBLE YOU DIDN’T TELL YOUR U.S. MASTERS!
THEREFORE: HOW CAN THE U.S. ESTABLISHMENT STILL BE LYING THAT ATTA WENT UNDETECTED UNTIL 911??
4. MR CLINTON/MR BUSH, WHAT DID YOU TWO KNOW ABOUT THE YARKAS PHONE TAPS BETWEEN 1997 AND SEPT.10, 2001? TESTIFY UNDER OATH!
JULY 2000-NOVEMBER 2000: Venice, Florida, Huffman Aviation School: Mohamed Atta and Marwan Al-Shehhi train here (the latter reportedly would die hitting the WTC’s South Tower on Sept.11).
By the way, Clinton/Bush: was Huffman one of the "several schools" under FBI inquiry since 1996?
Source 1: Rudi Dekkers, owner of Huffman, said that Atta and Shehhi could never have flown a large jetliner into the WTC on 911 because they just didn’t have the skills.
DECEMBER 26, 2000: Miami International Airport. "Mr Atta and Marwan Al-Shehhi, another hijacker-in-training, taxied a small private plane toward a runway when, unexpectedly, it stalled. Unable to restart the engine, the two men shut the plane down, FLIPPED OFF THE LIGHTS AND BY ONE ACCOUNT, WALKED OFF…THE STRANGE INCIDENT, WHICH HAPPENED ON A BUSY TRAVEL DAY [THE DAY AFTER XMAS] AT THE NINTH-BUSIEST PASSENGER AIRPORT IN THE COUNTRY, IS ESPECIALLY NOTABLE BECAUSE OF HOW CLOSE IT BROUGHT THE TWO MEN TO OFFICIAL SCRUTINY.
ACCORDING TO ONE FORMER FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR, A FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL PLACED AN ANGRY CALL THE MORNING AFTER THE DEC. 26 INCIDENT [i.e. on Dec. 27, 2000], THREATENING TO INVESTIGATE THE MAINTENANCE RECORD OF THE PLANE AS WELL AS THE TWO PILOTS…A SPOKESMAN FOR THE AVIATION AGENCY REFUSED TO COMMENT ON WHETHER ANY OFFICIAL INVESTIGATION HAD BEEN LAUNCHED AGAINST THE TWO TERRORISTS, citing the ongoing…investigation into the hijackings."
"A CURRENT EMPLOYEE AT HUFFMAN CONFIRMED THAT THE FLIGHT SCHOOL DID FORWARD THE AGENCY THE PLANE’S MAINTENANCE RECORDS."
Therefore, it is to be assumed that the Federal Aviation Agency DID INDEED follow through on its threat of launching an investigation: the maintenance-record part was looked into but - WHAT ABOUT THE TWO PILOTS?
They had angered the FAA with reckless behavior that had endangered airport safety on Dec.26, 2000:
- they had flipped off the lights at "5:45pm" (not exactly broad daylight anymore);
- they had abandoned the plane in the middle of a runway "without radioing the tower and were walking across the airfield", as an "irritated official in the flight tower" explained over the phone to Dale Kraus, then the general manager at Huffman Aviation.
It is therefore logical to assume that the FAA followed through on its "angry" threat to investigate maintenance - and the two pilots.
Clinton/Bush, can humanity finally, over 1 year after Sept.11, be told if the FAA placed Atta/Al-Shehhi under investigation over the Dec.26, 2000 incident?
And if the FAA did investigate them, DID IT INFORM THE FBI (which would have been only natural, feds-to-feds crosschecking)?
APRIL 2001: Broward County, Florida: Mohamed Atta is "ticketed for driving without a license. He failed to show up for court, AND A BENCH WARRANT WAS ISSUED FOR HIS ARREST [my caps]; [a ‘bench warrant’ is "a warrant issued by a judge for the arrest of a person who is in contempt of court", according to Merriam-Webster’s dictionary of law]. But with more than 200,000 warrants pending on minor offenses in Broward County, he was never picked up".
What a convenient explanation. Yet, even if true, the "200,000" pending warrants fail to explain why Atta wasn’t arrested.
First, quick recap/refocusing.
By April 2001, Mohamed Atta had already screwed up so much that the claim he went undetected as a suspicious person until Sept.11 is utterly ridiculous:
1. on December 26, 2000 he had so blatantly endangered Miami airport safety that by April he may have been under FAA investigation, though FAA won’t comment;
2. if indeed he had been under FAA scrutiny, crosschecking with the FBI would have been routine;
3. the FBI had "several" U.S. flight schools under terrorism-related inquiry since 1996;
4. Atta had flown to Spain in January 2001 to meet Qaedas at least one of whom was being shadowed by Spanish intelligence - that the Spanish wouldn’t flag Atta to the U.S. after this isn’t plausible.
And - one more thing: had the Florida arrest warrant been entered in the "INTERAGENCY WATCH LIST DATABASES CALLED NAILS AND IBIS"? Obviously Immigration don’t check all local databases; but do they check NAILS and IBIS when passengers are entering the U.S. from abroad?
Clinton/Bush, testify again under oath:
WAS ATTA’S APRIL 2001 ARREST WARRANT DETECTABLE BY CHECKING NAILS/IBIS? IF SO, WHY WASN’T HE ARRESTED WHEN HE REENTERED THE U.S. IN JULY 2001 AFTER HIS 2nd QAEDA-RELATED TRIP TO MADRID?
AND IF NOT, WHY WASN’T ATTA’S ARREST WARRANT ENTERED INTO THE NAILS/IBIS INTERAGENCY WATCH LIST DATABASES?
The author of source 10 says that "once you’re in the country" it’s easy to escape NAILS/IBIS detection because "the watch list is very rarely cross-checked".
BUT ATTA IN JULY 2001 WAS FLYING BACK INTO THE U.S. FROM SPAIN. SO EVEN IN THE UNLIKELY CASE THAT SPANISH INTELLIGENCE HADN’T BLOWN THE WHISTLE, WHY DIDN’T IMMIGRATION OFFICIALS DETECT ATTA’S WARRANT ON NAILS/IBIS?
Is NAILS/IBIS a routine check for passengers from abroad or not? I do not know, so now - TESTIFY!
Mohamed Atta "mostly used his own name and vital statistics as he traveled the country in the months before the hijackings."
Things were made as easy as it gets for him.
As if there weren’t plenty enough probable cause/circumstantial evidence already that the U.S. establishment allowed Atta to plot & perform Sept.11[IF indeed Atta ever plotted/performed 911], here’s one last breadcrumb on his trail.
MOHAMED ATTA WAS ALLOWED TO TRAVEL BACK AND FORTH FROM AND INTO THE U.S. WITHOUT A VALID VISA FROM JANUARY THROUGH APRIL 2001.
Source 6: "In January 2001, after flying from Miami to Madrid, HE WAS ALLOWED TO RE-ENTER THE COUNTRY DESPITE OVERSTAYING HIS PREVIOUS VISA [the visa on which he’d entered the U.S. on June 2, 2000, see above]; [caps mine]".
But the point is not only that Atta wasn’t held accountable for overstaying his previous visa - THE REAL POINT IS: ATTA DID NOT HAVE A NEW VISA until July 17, 2001 (source 11), when the INS reportedly approved a student visa for Atta; a visa which was reportedly sent to him ‘last summer ’. But there is no proof of all this because "INS officials have declined to provide copies of the actual approval notices they say were sent to the men [Atta and his cohort Al-Shehhi] last summer."
Anyway, even assuming that Atta received his new visa shortly after INS approval of it on July 17, 2001: WHY FOR GODSSAKE WAS HE ALLOWED BACK THROUGH CUSTOMS:
- IN JANUARY 2001, BACK FROM MADRID, WITHOUT A VISA?
- ON APRIL 11, 2001, BACK FROM PRAGUE, WITHOUT A VISA?
- IN JULY 2001, BACK FROM MADRID, WITHOUT A VISA?
HE VIRTUALLY ENJOYED DIPLOMATIC STATUS - THANKS TO YOU BOTH, CLINTON/BUSH? TESTIFY!
INS, FBI, CIA: TESTIFY!
Reader please note that Atta was reportedly an Egyptian, and Egyptians unlike Westerners need a visa even for tourism in the U.S..
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2001, 8:46am:
Bush happens (?) to be in Florida.
Clinton happens (?) to be in Australia.
Mohamed Atta, "now" believed to have been the ringleader of the Sept.11 hijackers, allegedly proceeds to massmurder scores of people at the WTC.
BUT IF HE WAS AN EVIL TERRORIST, WHAT ABOUT THE TWIN COWARDS WHO ARGUABLY HAD THE POWER AND FOREKNOWLEDGE TO STOP HIM - AND CHOSE NOT TO DO SO?…
…Hold on a sec. What if - what if Mohamed Atta had never died at all?
Bush & his gang of thugs/liars-for-a-living have been telling us for over 10 months that Mohamed Atta flew AA11 into the WTC.
Source 12 has it otherwise. Here’s what Edward Jay Epstein (whom William Safire calls ‘my Angletonian friend’) says:
"[Atta’s] trail ends at 5:58am on September 11th at Portland International Airport in Maine [nobody knows why he allegedly went to Portland before Boston - my note]. He is photographed by a security camera there with an unidentified man […] using the ‘Alomari’ credentials [that is, the alleged hijacker ‘Alomari’ may have been using a stolen identity - my note]."
Unfortunately, Epstein doesn’t source his statements, and is not 100% accurate.
But IF he’s basically telling the truth, then "the… plane departed for Boston at 6am. NO ONE ABOARD THE PLANE RECALLED SEEING ATTA. NONE OF THE SECURITY CAMERAS AT LOGAN AIRPORT PHOTOGRAPHED ATTA [my caps]. The first-class ticket that Atta had purchased on American Airlines Flight 11 was used to board the plane, and a ticket agent reportedly recalled questioning an Arab man […] BUT THERE WAS NO VISUAL IDENTIFICATION OF THAT PASSENGER [caps mine]."
"After Flight 11 crashed, the bag Atta left in Portland was retrieved by the FBI." Atta had checked it "at the US Airway Desk, which services the Colgan Air flights between Portland and Boston".
So why wasn’t the bag directly transferred to the connection flight - AA11?
Why did US Airway not load Atta’s bag and then transfer it to AA11 at Logan?
Allegedly, that bag contained Atta’s "will, videos of the interiors of Boeing airliners and a flight computer". Perfect stage setting: clearly fabricated evidence, planted by the FBI most likely because: why would Atta, if he really was bound to die, want to take his will with him? A will is something you leave behind for your legatees, not something you take with you into the grave.
The FBI has been telling us that Atta’s passport was found - miraculously intact - near the smoldering WTC rubble.
Could you show us that passport, FBI director Mueller?
And Atta’s bag and its contents too?
No trace of Atta - pulverized, cremated? But his superresilient, fire-proof passport was harder than a black box (not found at the WTC).
I’m not the first one to poke fun at this story - but I can’t logically rule it out 100% . So show me Atta’s passport + bag, Mueller.
One last thing for now: Atta’s father claimed that he had spoken to his son after the crash.
Hey CNN: how about a live, prime-time interview with Atta’s father?
One would have expected law enforcement (Mueller) to have interviewed Atta’s father at length - forget it. NO ONE SHOULD EXPECT A SERIOUS 911 INVESTIGATION FROM THOSE WHO SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED: BUSH & CO.
Hey Bush - where is Mohamed Atta? And since you’re at it: where is Osama Bin Laden?
