History Commons Project, Update for July and August

9/11 Project

The 9/11 Timeline has been growing by leaps and bounds. The number of entries posted per day has nearly doubled, and its contributors have been digging into several new areas of research. There are too many new entries to mention specifically, but some of the new categories include the following:

Al-Kifah/MAK - This category focuses mostly on the Al-Kifah Refugee Center and consists of some very astonishing material. This charity front was al-Qaeda's operational headquarters in the US in the late 1980s and early 1990s, yet at the same time it was closely tied to CIA efforts to win the wars in Afghanistan and Bosnia. These new entries raise disturbing questions about CIA collaboration with al-Qaeda.

Al-Qaeda in Balkans - This is not a new category per se, but it has been heavily updated, doubling in length. There is a little known scandal having to do with the Bosnia war in the early 1990s. In order to evade a UN arms embargo on Bosnia, the US turned a blind eye to an illegal weapons pipeline and may well have actually been involved with it. This pipeline involved al-Qaeda related charity fronts such as the Third World Relief Agency (TWRA), once again raising disturbing questions about collaboration with al-Qaeda. The project's current contributors hope to add substantially more material to this category in the near future.

CIA Hiding Alhazmi & Almihdhar - As time goes on, it is becoming increasingly clear that the CIA knew the 9/11 hijackers Khalid Almihdhar and Nawaf Alhazmi had visas to the US, but purposely withheld this information from the FBI. Contributor KJF has added so many instances of this that we've created a new category for it.

Londonistan - UK Counterterrorism - We are just beginning to explore this topic but hope to have much more on it in the future. Britain has allowed so many radical militants to live openly in London that it is sometimes nicknamed Londonistan.
BIF - This new category focuses on the Benevolence International Foundation charity front. What's interesting about this charity is that it was closely tied to al-Qaeda, raised millions, and was based inside the US. Members of the 9/11 project are exploring why this charity was not shut down before 9/11.

US Government and 9/11 Criticism - This new category compiles most of the entries relating to what some call 9/11 "conspiracy theories."

Alleged Al-Qaeda Linked Attacks - The "War on Terrorism" section now includes a list of all the major alleged al-Qaeda linked attacks.

Terror Alerts - There have been many false alarms and overhyped alerts since 9/11. Mike, one of the History Commons' newest contributors, is in the process of listing them in this new category.

Bush's Aug. 6, 2001 PDB - Everything you want to know about President Bush's infamous briefing entitled "Bin Laden Determined to Attack in US" can be found here.

Bayoumi and Basan Saudi Connection - No new material here, but for your convenience, this new category brings together all the entries relating to Omar al-Bayoumi and Osama Basnan, associates of 9/11 hijackers Khalid Almihdhar and Nawaf Alhazmi.
In addition to all these new categories, many other new entries have been added elsewhere. In particularly, contributor Matt continues to stay on top of Day of 9/11 events and has brought to light dozens of little known incidents from that day.

Join the effort

The History Commons project is an intelligence tool for civil society, allowing people at the grassroots-level to monitor and investigate the activities of governments and corporations. The History Commons project has the potential to become civil society's most important tool in keeping government officials and corporations in check. But we can't do this without your involvement and support.

This is a super resource.

It wasn't much but I hope it helps. I would encourage others to do likewise- this is an utterly amazing research site. Keep up the great work!
