CIA has three interrogation tapes of Zacarias Moussaoui

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The CIA erred in twice telling a court in the case of September 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui that it did not have any recordings of interrogations of "enemy combatants," when in fact it had three video or audio tapes, according to a letter released on Tuesday.

Prosecutors only recently learned of the tapes from the CIA, they said in the letter to the judge who presided over the case and to a U.S. appeals court that considered the Moussaoui case.

In court declarations on May 9, 2003 and on November 14, 2005, the CIA stated the government did not have any video or audio tapes of the interrogations. Moussaoui initially sought the testimony of several top al Qaeda witnesses as part of his defense.

When it made both declarations, the CIA in fact possessed two video tapes and an audio tape of the unidentified "enemy combatant" interrogations, the prosecutors said.

Alleged 9/11 mastermind KSM, 13 others closer to U.S. military trial

Alleged 9/11 mastermind, 13 others closer to U.S. military trial

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Fourteen suspected terrorists listed as "high-value detainees" at the U.S. detention camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, have been designated as enemy combatants, placing them in line to be charged and put on trial by the U.S. military, Pentagon officials said Thursday.

The detainees -- including Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind behind the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States -- were moved to Guantanamo Bay by the president last September after being held in secret CIA prisons around the world.

All 14 detainees went through closed hearings before a military panel to determine whether they would be eligible for a military tribunal.

Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England approved their designation as enemy combatants by the panels, paving the way for military prosecutors to charge them, Pentagon officials said.

Among the other high-value detainees are Ramzi bin al-Shibh, alleged to be another key 9/11 planner; and Abu Faraj al-Libi, allegedly a top al Qaeda planner.

CIA report on 9/11 due Labor Day

CIA report on 9/11 due Labor Day

By Helen Fessenden
August 08, 2007
The CIA has been ordered to release by Labor Day a declassified summary of an internal report on the agency’s performance prior to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, possibly shedding light on whether senior officials made fundamental lapses in judgment.

Under the 9/11 bill that President Bush signed into law Friday, the agency must release a public summary within 30 days of the law’s enactment, along with a classified annex for Congress that explains the report’s redactions.

CIA spokesman George Little told The Hill in an e-mail Monday that the agency “will, of course, comply with the law.”

Until now, the CIA had refused to disclose any part of the report since its former inspector general (IG), John Helgerson, completed the final draft more than two years ago. The 9/11 bill, which addresses most of the 9/11 Commission’s unfulfilled recommendations, is the first successful legislation to mandate a declassified summary.

Shreveport, Louisiana; 9/24/2006: 9/11 Whistle-Blower Dead After Poisoning, another Pakistani connection

News Story:
"Local Terrorist Whistle-Blower Dead After Poisoning"

He claimed he met three of the Sept. 11 hijackers in Shreveport a year before the attacks.
Now, that man, Shreveport dentist Dr. David Graham, is dead.

His family says he was poisoned more than two years ago. At the time, Graham was trying to publish a manuscript about meeting three middle easterners in Shreveport, men he feared were plotting to bomb Barksdale Air Force Base. Graham wrote that he warned the FBI. Then after Sept. 11, he saw their pictures among the hijackers.

Before Graham was poisoned, he was supposed to testify at a deportation hearing against a Pakistani man, Jamal Khan, who hosted the men Graham believed to be the hijackers. Graham's brother, Edwin Jones, told us Wednesday night the family believes someone slipped poison into his drink, plunging him into a deadly illness.
