Which Flight 77 Hijacker is "Mosear Caned"?

On the morning of September 14, 2001, at about 10:11 am according to this CNN transcript, the official list of 18 hjackers was released.

Aired September 14, 2001 - 10:11 ET

LEON HARRIS, CNN ANCHOR: Folks, we are going to break into this press conference by the mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani, because we have some breaking news. Leon Harris here at the CNN Center in Atlanta, but we're going now to Washington D.C., where our Kelli Arena is standing by. She has got some breaking news on the identities of those 18 hijackers. Kelli, take it away.

KELLI ARENA, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Well, Leon, we did manage -- CNN managed to grab a list of the names of the 18 suspected hijackers that is supposed to be officially released by justice sometime later today. I will do my best to read, to read the names, some are a bit unfamiliar. On American flight 11, the first name Walid Al Shehhi (ph), the second, Wellal Sheyi (ph), also known as Wahidal Sheyi. ... third name, Mohammed Atta (ph). ... Abdul Ala Mari (ph) and Setam Segani (ph), Marwanal Shehhi on the list as well. They are looking an awful lot alike here, Leon. Marwan Al Shehhi, a UAE passport. Fayez Ahmed, Mahad Al Shari (ph), Hanza Al-Gari (ph), Amdad Al Dandi (ph). Let me stop here for a moment. We have a few more names to read. The way this is working out, there were five hijackers on two planes, four hijackers on two others. We are told by law enforcement sources that most of these names in some way connect in some way to indirectly or directly to Osama bin Laden.

Question Authority ... Except About 9/11?
A Reply to Matthew Rothschild of The Progressive

By Allan Wood

On the fifth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, Matthew Rothschild, the editor of The Progressive, published a lengthy commentary on the magazine's website: "Enough of the 9/11 Conspiracies, Already". It was posted at Common Dreams the following day.

In discussing the 9/11 Truth Movement, Rothschild made some blatant distortions and omissions, which I would like to address.

I have been independently researching various aspects of 9/11 ever since the names of the 19 hijackers were first released on September 14, 2001. I helped write and edit entries for Paul Thompson's Complete 9/11 Timeline, I co-wrote an examination of what George W. Bush did on that infamous morning, and I spoke at a press conference for 9/11 Citizens Watch in lower Manhattan before the 9/11 Commission's first public hearing in 2003.
