9/11 Timeline Obtains Major New FBI Document

“A contributor to the History Commons has obtained a 298-page document entitled Hijackers Timeline (Redacted) from the FBI, subsequent to a Freedom of Information Act request. The document was a major source of information for the 9/11 Commission's final report. Though the commission cited the timeline 52 times in its report, it failed to include some of the document's most important material.

The printed document is dated November 14, 2003, but appears to have been compiled in mid-October 2001 (the most recent date mentioned in it is October 22, 2001), when the FBI was just starting to understand the backgrounds of the hijackers, and it contains almost no information from the CIA, NSA, or other agencies. This raises questions as to why the 9/11 Commission relied so heavily on such an early draft for their information about the hijackers.”

Summary of what the FBI document reveals:

Nawaf Alhazmi and Khalid Almihdhar claimed in a rental application that they moved straight to San Diego to live with a Saudi agent after arriving in the US, whereas the 9/11 Commission said they remained in LA for two weeks;

Hamza Alghamdi and Marwan Alshehhi spent over four hundred dollars in July 2001 on “pornographic video and sex toys;”

A call between Khalid Almihdhar in San Diego and al-Qaeda’s main communications hub in Sana’a, Yemen, that was intercepted by the NSA lasted 16 minutes;

Satam al Suqami’s passport was “soaked in jet fuel” when recovered on 9/11;

Khaled Almihdhar and possibly Salem Alhazmi were videotaped at Dulles airport on 9/10. This supports the account of security guard Eric Gill, who claims two other hijackers and three unidentified others tried to penetrate a secure area at the airport on that day;

Several more of the hijackers’ 364 name variants and aliases, such as “Hamburg Elsayed,” are revealed;

The FBI has lots of video of the hijackers, but has not yet released it;

The bag left by Alhazmi and Almihdhar near a mosque just before 9/11 contained documents related to their flight training in May 2000;

Crack terrorist Abdulaziz Alomari lost his Flight 11 ticket and had to get a replacement 2 days before 9/11;

Upon entering the US, fellow crack terrorist Ahmed Alghami commented to the immigration officer that the media distorted facts about bin Laden and that Osama was a “good Muslim.”


I'd be interested to know why this document came out now, just as all this other Commission stuff is coming out. Was it applied for long ago, or only recently?

As things unravel I expect that limited hangout versions will appear with increasing intensity, increasing distraction. There will be pressure to just go along with an investigation, any investigation.

I applied for it in summer 2006

Some other people applied for it at different times. My understanding is it is being released to everybody now. I don't know why it took so long. FOIA requests can take years.

Limited Hangout Implications

Certainly, the official 9/11 story has always been a limited hangout/"conspiracy theory"/sacred myth of coordinated "incompetence" in which everyone is promoted and no one is fired. http://arabesque911.blogspot.com/2007/11/911-incompetence-sabotage-and.html

In regards to the alleged hijackers, they were likely in my opinion based on some very curious evidence, US sponsored intelligence assets as they lived and trained on US army bases and even an FBI informant. To argue "incompetence" here, pretends that these "hijackers" were not in fact, US intelligence agents. The limited hangout as promoted by the GOP sacred myth version is that the terrorists are a completely separate and independent entity from US interests, when in fact, the US government created Al Qaeda in the first place and has never abandoned them; even using them currently to destabilize Iran ("U.S. Government Uses Al-Qaeda To Attack Iran" http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/may2007/280507usesalqaeda.htm). Of course, there is no question that the probability of the alleged hijackers successfully carrying out the attack of the scale of 9/11 on their own piloting skills is virtually non-existent--in fact impossible according to the actual rules of aircraft interception (i.e. inside job), we shouldn't confuse the fact that certain parts of the attack were allowed to happen (i.e. patsies kept out of jail, so that they could be blamed for the attacks) while others aspects of the attacks were made to happen. It is not an either/or proposition. http://arabesque911.blogspot.com/2007/11/disinformation-and-false-lihopm...

Q about text in columns

KJF: I posted this in Paul's DU thread also:

The text in column D on many of the entries is cut off from view -- as though the table's cells were a fixed size and did not expand with the addition of text.

Check out these random entries: 1236, 1861, 2156, 2170, 2871

In each of these -- and many more -- the complete text from column D is not visible. Yet some of the rows are quite high and so all of the text should be visible in most of the columns. Strange. And annoying.

Alghamdi probably expected to live after 9/11

"Hijacker Hamza Alghamdi booked several flights after 9/11. He booked a continuation from Los Angeles to San Francisco later on the day of the attacks. Then, on September 20, he planned to fly from Rome to Casablanca, to Riyadh, to Damman, Saudi Arabia."

What will the debunkers say? That he did that to confuse the authorities?
