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.”

History Commons Chapter Summary – Mamoun Darkazanli

As you may be aware, the History Commons (aka Center for Cooperative Research) has a lot of material in its timelines, but some of the chapters are pretty involved. For this purpose, I’m going to write a series of chapter summaries, briefly highlighting what each entry in a chapter is about. The first one is for Mamoun Darkazanli, an associate of “Hamburg Cell” hijackers Mohamed Atta, Marwan Alshehhi, and Ziad Jarrah:

Mamoun Darkazanli is a Hamburg-based businessman and suspected al-Qaeda operative who is said to be connected to the 1998 East African embassy bombings. He was monitored by German and US intelligence and was close to the “Hamburg Cell” of 9/11 hijackers Mohamed Atta, Marwan Alshehhi and Ziad Jarrah. He is currently free.

Who were those hijackers, anyway? A Telling Story Resurrected

Who were those hijackers, anyway? A Telling Story Resurrected

by Elizabeth Woodworth, September 30, 2007

Abstract: The sole purpose of this short article is to restore to the public domain a highly significant local news story which is no longer available on the Internet. "Fourth Terrorist Suspect May Have Ties to Venice", by staff writers Kimel, Werner, and Crain, appeared in the Sarasota Herald Tribune on Saturday Sept. 22, 2001. It is attached here, in full original print format, showing its source and date. This story should be widely downloaded as contributing evidence for the inevitable new 9/11 investigation.

According to a local news story which has been scrubbed from the Internet, two of the devout fundamentalist hijackers who “hated our freedoms”, were frequently seen to have indulged the seamier side of those freedoms in the small town of Venice, Florida.

The locally researched “Fourth Terrorist Suspect May Have Ties to Venice” (Sarasota Herald Tribune, September 22nd, 2001) is significant for three reasons:

... Since the 11th, many of America’s policies have come under the influence of the Mujahideen, ... And as a result, the people discovered the truth about it, its reputation worsened, its prestige was broken globally and it was bled dry economically, even if our interests overlap with the interests of the major corporations and also with those of the neoconservatives, despite the differing intentions.

And for your information media, during the first years of the war, lost its credibility and manifested itself as a tool of the colonialist empires, and its condition has often been worse than the condition of the media of the dictatorial regimes which march in the caravan of the single leader. ..."

Hijackers as Patsies

In the interest of clarity (and since certain others here have been unwilling to make the case), here is an exceptionally well done presentation by Ralph Schoenman about the problems with the official hijacker story. The title is misleading, as it's not about the "underlying politics" but more about the underlying operation.



I would double check the information before quoting it, and find multiple sources for corroboration.

Mohamed Atta's Best Friend Caught in South Pacific: “You can’t arrest me, I’m working for the CIA” has a larger write-up available here. - Jon

Daniel Hopsicker is an independent journalist working in Venice, Florida, outside the decommissioned military airstrips where three pilots from the 9/11 attack were trained. Hopsicker found the secret life of 9/11 ring-leader Mohamed Atta, who lead the operation by piloting the first plane into the World Trade Centre. Hopsicker found Atta’s American girlfriend, Amanda Keller. What she said broke new ground for truth-seekers worldwide. Atta had social connections and a party-boy life that indicated there was more to his story than people had been told. The American media establishment turned a blind eye to Hopsicker’s work, however. He has been called a “conspiracy theorist” in mainstream media in Florida, when he’s paid any attention at all.

Yet, in November, 2006, Hopsicker’s career turned a corner. Sources connected to the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) told The Megaphone that his work began to be used to track Atta’s former associates. A researcher close to JTTF, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Megaphone that the "JTTF relied heavily on Daniel's research on Atta and Amanda [Keller]. I faxed them pages from [Hopsicker’s book] Welcome to Terrorland."

Was Atta Associate In Florida a CIA Pilot?

Here is the latest from Daniel Hopsicker. I can't tell whether he is the great beat report I used to think he was or a disinformation artist spinning tales of intrigue.

Wolfgang Bohringer, the German pilot who was one of Mohamed Atta’s closest associates in Florida as well as the subject of an FBI terror alert in the South Pacific, was apprehended two weeks ago and taken into custody, but then was almost immediately released after he told authorities responsible for his capture that he works for the CIA.

The drama began to unfold a year ago when Wolfgang Bohringer sailed a 47-foot yacht called “The Argos” to tiny Fanning Island in the scattered South Pacific archipelago of Kiribati, a former British colony and today one of the world's smallest nations.

“U.S. authorities raised an alarm over the plan by the German pilot — linked to the Sept. 11 terror attacks — to build a flying school in the remote South Pacific island nation,” stated an AP report picked up by the New York Times-owned International Herald Tribune.

When we first reported Wolfgang Bohringer had close ties to Mohamed Atta over three years ago, in “Welcome to TERRORLAND: Mohamed Atta & the 9/11 cover-up in Florida,” the revelation was met with deafening silence.

Amanda Keller Changes Story.

From Southwest Florida's Herald Tribune:

For five years, Amanda Keller has been portrayed by conspiracy theorists as Mohamed Atta's lover.

But the former Venice stripper now says her boyfriend was another flight student not connected to 9/11. And, for the first time, federal investigators say she's right.

"There's nothing there to corroborate the relationship between the two," a New York-based FBI counterterrorism agent said recently after reviewing 9/11 case files.

Here is an interview from a few years ago of Amanda talking about Mohammed.

What does this all of this mean?

Atta's Father Says Video Fake

Info Wars has an article rounding up evidence that the videotaped confessions of 9/11 hijackers and plotters are fake.

For example, it links to an October 3rd statement by Atta's father that the new videotape of his son is a fake. There is also a link to the statement of one of the world's foremost experts on Bin Laden that the most recent OBL audiotape is fake, and that Bin Laden is likely dead.

There is alot more information in the Info Wars article, although I haven't had time to analyze it enough to know which evidence I find credible and which I don't.

As for Atta, his father certainly has a motive to deny that his son is a terrorist. On the other hand, he knows what Atta looks like better than anyone else.

What do you think?

Atta's Father Claims Recent Videos Fake, U.S. And Israel Orchestrated 9/11

Keeping in mind, I doubt any father would want to admit their son had anything to do with something as horrific as 9/11.

Terrorist's Father Accuses Israel and U.S. of Planning 9/11

( Muhammad a-Sayed Atta, father of Muhammad Atta, one of the terrorists who carried out the 9/11 fatal attacks, claims that recently published photographs of his son were forged by the United States.

In an interview with Saudi newspaper Al Watan, Atta senior says, "the United States is who orchestrated the Sept. 11 attacks and was assisted by Jewish planners. This was in order to cover up even greater disasters that were starting to be revealed."



Cairo, 3 Oct. (AKI) - The father of Mohammed Atta, the leader of the September 11 hijackers, says a video published by the British daily The Sunday Times, showing Atta 20 months before the Twin Towers attacks, is false. "The video-testament of my son is false and I continue to believe he is innocent" Muhammad al-Amir al-Sayd Atta, 71, told Saudi daily al-Watan. "The Americans tampered with and falsified that video" he alleged, " they want to change the truth in order to achieve their goals in the Middle East."

LONDON Oct 1, 2006 (AP)— More than 18 months before they carried out the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil, a new videotape shows two of the Sept. 11 hijackers laughing and smiling for a camera.

Mohamed Atta and Ziad Jarrah look much different in the tape than they do in photographs made famous after the attacks in New York and Washington....
