Harb received a call from Bayoumi's phone on 2/15/2000 shortly after Hazmi and Mihdhar arrive in SD. When Harb returned the call Hazmi answered the phone. This means the hijackers were using Bayoumi's phone during this time. Which means even a keystone cop would know to scrutinize the calls on this phone and yet the calls on his phone were never investigated despite FBI agents wanting to do their job-they were prevented. Yes-he is a manager of an apartment building. You know the address of his apartment building he was managing? I know someone that has been trying to locate him, if he's still around.

When I looked for a Harb who was an apartment manager i found one on Wilshire Blvd in LA. I was expecting San Diego. I cant guarantee that it is the Harb they are referring to but it makes a kind of sense. George B Harb owned the Gaylord Apartments. 3355 Wilshire 90010.

It makes sense because it is across the street from Concord English Language Centre, 3435 Wilshire 90010, which brings in students illegally and Benomrane was associated with.

The FBI Harb interview isnt much help.

An address linked to this Harb:

There is more to the LA story. Especially the Med Grill meeting on Venice Blvd. There was another guy who i saw referenced once and can no longer find who the FBI did an investigation on and showed he had ties to the hijackers.

Interestingly, when i look up the address for Concord I get a link to the "Philippine Consulate General."

Taibah International Aid Association (or “Taibah”) is a charitable organization headquartered in Falls Church, Virginia. Established in 1991, Taibah’s IRS Form 1023, which serves as an application to the United States Government for tax exempt status, lists Abdullah A. bin Laden, Osama bin Laden’s half-brother, as a founding officer.

Although it purports to be a humanitarian organization, the Taibah International Aid Association furthers the aims and materially supports Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda. Through the actions of its agents, officers and employees, Taibah has provided financial and material support to al Qaeda. The strong affiliation that Taibah maintains with many other al Qaeda front-groups demonstrates its place as a highly connected component of Osama bin Laden’s financial and logistical support network.

Abdurahman M. Alamoudi, a founder of the American Muslim Council and related American Muslim Foundation, was indicted Thursday on charges of engaging in illegal financial transactions with Libya. Alamoudi is listed as vice president of an organization in Falls Church, Va., called the Taibah International Aid Association. A director of that organization is Abdullah A. bin Laden, nephew of al Qaeda leader bin Laden, according to the affidavit.

Officials found seven U.S.-designated terrorist groups among the names and numbers in al-Amoudi's confiscated Palm Pilot. The government also found an unsigned document in Arabic during a search of al-Amoudi's office in Virginia that makes numerous references to Hamas and discusses "execution of operations against the Israelis to delay the peace process."

It is an almost unknown fact that Abdullah ran a training camp for Chechens in Okeechobee Florida. He did this whilst living with US military personnel and with US military permission. Was this a camp a terror training camp? I dont know.

Greg Palast was provided with a document about an FBI Washington field office counter terrorism investigation of Abdullah bin Laden which had been blocked pre 9/11.

Alamoudi could also have interfered in the Bosnian peace process

Abdulrahman Alamoudi met with Clinton’s National Security Advisor, Anthony Lake, in the White House on December 8, 1995 to receive a briefing on the Dayton Peace Agreement and to represent the interests of the Muslim Community.

US Rep. Gregory Meeks scolded immigration officials for questioning a Muslim scholar whose nonprofits have been linked to financing terrorism.

The Queens Democrat contacted federal agencies -- finally appealing to then-Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff -- asking why Anwar Hajjaj faced "unwarranted scrutiny" when he returned to the United States from trips abroad through JFK Airport.

Meeks described Hajjaj as a "highly regarded" professor of Islamic studies who leads Friday Muslim prayers at the Capitol.

Meeks said Hajjaj was "a pioneer in distance-based learning of Islam" through the American Open University in Virginia, according to a copy of the Sept. 30, 2006, letter to Chertoff, which was obtained by The Post under a Freedom of Information Act request.

Hows that War on Terror and those who harbor them

On June 4, 1999, Turani met with US President Bill Clinton in order to persuade him to back the East Turkistan independence movement.[7] Turani told Clinton that his nation is in favor of waging a war of independence against China;[8][9] articles from the East Turkistan Government in Exile continues to assert the "legitimate right to wage war" against China. Turani claimed to had been funded by wealthy Uyghurs in Saudi Arabia.[10]

On July 20, 2001 Turani received a letter from the United States Department of State on behalf of President George W. Bush in response to Turani's initial letter concerning the Chinese occupation of East Turkistan. In this letter, the U.S. government expressed its willingness to protect the "fundamental human rights -- the rights to freedom of association, assembly, religion, belief, conscience, and expression -- of Uyghurs and others living in China."

East Turkistan Government in Exile

On September 14, 2004, Anwar Yusuf Turani proclaimed the creation of the "East Turkistan Government in Exile" in Washington, D.C.,[12] and was elected Prime Minister.[13][14] China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Kong Quan publicly registered his displeasure, referencing such groups' terrorism in the Xinjiang region.

Media reports and scholarly studies of terrorism in contemporary China frequently focus on members of the largely Muslim Uyghur ethnic group, who are concentrated in the Northwestern province of Xinjiang. Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri released a statement supporting Jihad in Xinjiang against Chinese.

SAAR is alternatively referred to as the Safa Group.
SAAR was named after the patriarch of the wealthy Saudi Arabian al-Rajhi family, who are also the foundation’s largest donors.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SAAR_Foundation

Could be Jamal Barzinji

Although id like to know who he means, having researched this, i think it could be just about any of them there. They all seem to have similar backgrounds.

Court documents filed in Virginia and obtained by CNSNews.com indicate that a government investigation of Alamoudi has uncovered evidence linking him to al Qaeda through a non-profit called the Taibah International Aid Association (TIAA), based in Falls Church, Va.

The court documents filed by the U.S. attorney's office in Virginia stated that Mohammed El-Nagmy, an employee of TIAA and its sister organization Taibah in Sarajevo, Bosnia, served simultaneously as the Bosnian representative for the Global Relief Foundation (GRF).

"GRF ... personnel had multiple contacts with Wadih El-Hage, UBL's [Osama bin Laden] personal secretary when UBL was in Sudan," according to the U.S. Treasury Department. El-Hage was convicted in May 2001 for his role in the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings.

The whole point of this is that convoluted trails of personal associates and organizations add layers of deniability for key individuals involved in terrorist planning.

Here is another character invited to the Pentagon.

Quote
On the morning of 11 September 2001, Soliman was representing the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) at the UN and was due to attend a conference for NGOs in the Department of Public Information (DPI) being held in Manhattan on that day.

“That morning, I had three hours before I needed to be at my conference, so I decided to do a bit of sightseeing. At 8am on the 11th of September I was trying to stop a taxi to take me and two colleagues to the World Trade Centre. No taxi stopped for half an hour.” Later Soliman found out that the first attack on the Twin Towers took place at 8.45am.

“I was quite frustrated at the time, not realising that God was saving our lives."

With the aim of building a platform for educational interfaith discussion, Soliman began an initiative, The Bridges Foundation, to overcome misunderstanding and improve education about Islam. Soliman was invited to the Pentagon to speak several times at the Department of Defence and Capitol Hill, as well as to talk to prisoners in jails.

Soliman has spoken at several correctional facilities in the USA and sponsored some prisoners to learn about Islam when he saw that they had some extreme views, sponsoring them to take Islamic studies via online programmes like the American Open University in Washington DC.

About two weeks after the 9/11 Commission says Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi first moved to San Diego, Anwar Aulaqi incorporated a business at an address in north San Diego.

A local inventor named Sam Hacene Eulmi joined him in this venture, Al Fahm Inc.  --  https://www.corporationwiki.com/p/2cnetk/al-fahm-inc

No-Harb is in SD.....

Bayoumi’s cell phone was used to call the landlord of an apartment complex on 49th Street, off El Cajon Boulevard. On February 15 the landlord returned a page from Bayoumi’s phone and Hazmi answered.

Here is a very similar story to the Shalabi murder story which is floating around, apparently falsely, that he was murdered in the wtc.

In 1990, Gambino boss John Gotti ordered the murder of mobster Louis DiBono, DiBono had allegedly been disrespectful to Gotti, who decided to eliminate him, and sent bobby Boriello to attend to Dibono. In October 1990, DiBono's bullet-ridden body was discovered in the front seat of a Cadillac sedan in the underground garage at the New York World Trade Center

Indian intelligence wiretap identified 9/11 hijackers. 2002

Indian intelligence agencies helped the US to identify the hijackers who carried out the deadly September 11 terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, a media report said here on Wednesday.

The new probe began after US officials learned that intelligence agents in India had wiretapped the telephone of a Pakistani charity funded by the Saudi government and discovered the transfer of 100,000 dollars to Mohamed Atta, one of the 19 hijackers, the paper quoting US officials said.

The information helped US officials identify all the 19 hijackers -- 15 of whom were Saudi nationals, the officials said.

SUBPOENA

The checkout folio for Said Abdallah, who checked out of the Hilton hotel at Los Angeles Airport on January 16, 2000.

It would be very helpful if anyone could explain some things on the folios...like under CDE every time a 10 shows up there is a charge of $1.00. But every time a 12 is in the CDE column the charges are more, but under both circumstances under the column REF., there are what appears to be, military times, or 24-hour clock times. Could these be phone calls charged to the room? Anyone know how to read a Hotel bill/Folio?

Also under REF. is "PARK", and a charge of $10, which would seem to be a parking fee for a car.

If not, what does it mean? Anyone know?

In Any Case:

We all can see the 9-11 commission knows who paid for the first 2 of the hijackers arrival in America with their mastercard, and they are protecting them.

Basnan was associating in Virginia with people from WAMY and people from the IIRO

Anwar Aulaqi was doing the exact same thing when under surveillance there post 911.

This means that Omar Al Bayoumi probably has these ties as well.

An internet database shows an associate of Bayoumis in California to be Soliman Elay  and this man has been tentatively identified as Sulaiman bin Ali al-Ali (Kabbara).

It happens that the Kabbaras are associating with the exact same circles in Virginia, in particular IIRO.

Brother Bachir Kabbara is associated with Wael Hamza Julaidan's mosque in Tucson AZ.

Benevolence International, who have already been connected to Al Qaeda US terror attacks in the 90s are described as "an affiliate branch of the World Assembly for Muslim Youth."

Does anybody dispute associating these two key figures from the 28 Pages, Osama Basnan and Omar al-Bayoumi with the WAMY and IIRO nexus in Va?

Saudi sources acknowledged that the embassy; the ambassador, Prince Bandar bin Sultan; and his wife, Princess Haifa al-Faisal, together provided about $130,000 in what they called charitable donations over a four-year period to Majida Ibrahim Ahmad al-Dweikat

According to the Baltimore Sun
Quote
During part of the four-year period, the money trail passed through an address in the 2200 block of Kentucky Ave. in Baltimore, where a friend of Majida Ibrahim Ahmad's, Vuthaina Chakrouf, forwarded the Saudi checks to San Diego.

Chakrouf, an American citizen who became friends with Majida Ibrahim Ahmad while a nursing student in their native Jordan, agreed to forward the checks to San Diego. She said she never opened the envelopes but put them into new envelopes addressed to her friend in California.

"She asked me if she could use my address. She needed someone to send the money there," Chakrouf recounted in a telephone interview. She said Majida Ibrahim Ahmad expressed fear that the Saudi government would stop the payments if officials knew she had moved to California. But Chakrouf didn't say why Majida Ibrahim Ahmad thought that. 

Chakrouf expressed devotion to the United States. The attacks, she said, were committed by people who were "not human beings." "I love America," she said.
http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2002-11-25/news/0211250134_1_saudi-arabia-haifa-saudi-man

From my background check 'Vuthaina Chakrouf' also used the name Buthaina S Mansour.

She left a comment on a website about Palestine, saying she was from a village in the West Bank, north of Jerusalem, not Jordan:

February 11, 1989
Two clerks for the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles and two Northern Virginia men have been charged with bribery, fraud and conspiracy in what federal prosecutors said was a scheme that obtained false driver's licenses and residency permits for hundreds of illegal aliens. The two clerks, Gail Yvette Shaw of Fredericksburg and Theresia Maria Johnson of Falls Church, allegedly took payoffs in exchange for issuing driver's licenses to people who gave phony names and who did not take a driver's test, according to an affidavit filed by prosecutors. Both Shaw and Johnson work at the DMV office in Baileys Crossroads. The transactions were allegedly arranged by Bahauddin Khan Khattak of Arlington, who falsely claimed to be a lawyer, according to the affidavit, and by Issam H. Abu-Ghosh of Alexandria, who the affidavit says brought clients to Khattak.

Issam Abu-Ghosh mentioned here is an associate of Derar M Saleh, who later interacted with the 911 hijackers.

After failing to set the literary world afire with his memoir, Alec Baldwin is going to have to stick to this acting thing a while longer. He’s already lined up one high-profile project: Hulu’s 9/11 drama, The Looming Tower.

Based on Lawrence Wright’s book, the series will focus on the events leading up to the September 11th terrorist attacks, as well as the professional rivalry between the CIA and the FBI that could have proven to be a big enough distraction to keep them from catching onto the plans for the attack sooner. The Looming Tower adaptation comes from Dan Futterman and Alex Gibney, and has already drawn Peter Sarsgaard and Jeff Daniels to the cast. We previously reported that Daniels will play the FBI counterterrorism chief John O’Neill, which means that, as former CIA director George Tenet, Baldwin’s going to bust his balls.

When Jim Kreindler got to his midtown Manhattan office on Friday, July 15, 2016, he had a surprise waiting for him. Kreindler learned, “the 28 pages” as they were known, were open for inspection and it was up to his team to find something of value. It wasn’t long before they did—a single, vague line about a Somali charity in Southern California.

That obscure reference would soon become part of the backbone of an argument that Kreindler and his firm have been making for a long time: Without financial and logistical support from members of the government of Saudi Arabia, the 9/11 attacks would have never taken place.

The new filing—which seeks $10 million per death, the same as in the Lockerbie suit—is chock full of obscure names of private citizens and massive charities, but it involves people whom the firm says no one has connected before. One of the key players: a lanky former teacher’s aide in San Diego.

Early on the morning of January 22, 2004, Omar Abdi Mohamed sat across from Immigration and Customs Enforcement Senior Agent Steve Schultz looking untroubled. He believed he had been called in to talk about his pending citizenship, for which he had applied four years earlier. But the real reason for the interview was more serious. According to a government transcript, as the interview began Mohamed sketched out some of the details of his life. His first wife had been killed during a civil war in Somalia, and their son, now a teenager, lived in the same refugee camp in Kenya. Agent Schultz knew all this. He and Mohamed had gone over much of the same territory in another interview two years earlier. Mohamed had claimed previously that his Western Somali Relief Agency brought in almost nothing in donations. “It didn’t make it,” he had told Schultz. Money was so tight, he said, that if he and his organization had been given a box of blankets they wouldn’t have been able to afford postage for shipping.

But by now, according to the agent’s later grand jury testimony, Schultz knew this to be untrue. As he and Mohamed were speaking, Schultz’s colleagues were rifling through that stucco home and finding deposit slips that told a very different story. Far from destitute, the Western Somali Relief Agency had received more than $370,000 in donations. The vast majority from the Chicago branch of Global Relief. In the two years between Mohamed’s first interview and his second, Global Relief had been designated by the United States Treasury Department as a supporter of terrorism due to its alleged connections to Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda. What’s more, the agents discovered checks that showed Mohamed quickly moved the cash he had received from Global Relief to a money transfer service that operated throughout the Middle East.

Schultz also knew something else. Mohamed had claimed that his one and only job was as a teacher’s aide. But ICE officials had just discovered that was also untrue. Even before his arrival in the United States, Mohamed had been employed as a “propagator” for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Islamic Affairs, an agency long suspected of ties to extremists. For nearly a decade, Mohamed had received $1,750 a month to provide written reports on the local Islamic community. Even Mohamed’s listed reason for obtaining a religious worker’s visa, that he was to assist a San Diego imam, had been untrue. That same imam had told Schultz that Mohamed didn’t actually do any work. The mosque where he was supposedly first employed was just a small apartment. The story had been a ruse meant to help him gain entry into the United States.

Kreindler’s team who noticed that one vague line in the “28 pages.” It was a reference to a Somali nonprofit that, according to an FBI agent, “may allow the Saudi government to provide al Qaeda with funding through covert or indirect means.” They knew of only one Somali nonprofit with Saudi ties in San Diego—Mohamed’s Western Somali Relief.

During his 2004 interview with ICE, Mohamed said he once had been visited by an official from the Saudi Ministry of Islamic Affairs, the same department from which he was receiving a monthly check. Mohamed gave the man’s name as “Khaleid”, though the last name he offered was garbled. The ICE agent helpfully provided him with one: Sowailem. Khaleid Sowailem was, at the time, the head of Da’Wah, a department within the ministry whose stated goal is proselytizing.

Kreindler’s team took Sowailem’s name and plugged it into their database. They got a hit. Years before, Kreindler had received hundreds of thousands of pages of documents from a Saudi-funded charity called World Assembly of Muslim Youth, which according to the complaint, was linked to Al Qaeda. There, at the top of a single page, it found a note from Khaleid Sowailem written on official letterhead from the ministry. On that note was Sowailem’s phone number at the Saudi Embassy in Washington, D.C. They then plugged that number into the database and, again, out came a hit—this time, one that linked back to the men Kreindler and the rest of the world had already heard of.

According to heavily redacted FBI records gathered after 9/11, in the three months after Bayoumi allegedly randomly ran into and befriended the two hijackers, he also made nearly 100 calls to Saudi officials in the U.S. Thirty of those calls went to the number that Kreindler had uncovered as Sowailem’s line.

Here’s Kreindler’s theory:
Sometime late in 1998, a Somali Al Qaeda operative named Mohamed Sulaiman Barre established a branch of Dahabshiil in Karachi, Pakistan. (Dahabshiil is like an Islamic Western Union. A Somali-owned, Dubai- and London-based money transfer service.) Barre, who would later be held and interviewed repeatedly at Guantanamo Bay, operated the branch out of his apartment and internet cafes. He never had it registered, either, which meant that a branch supposedly intended to receive and send money to and from the whole world only had the capacity to accept it.

Also in Karachi at the same time was Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of 9/11. KSM, as U.S. officials later called him, was the point man for getting money to the 19 hijackers. He did this in a number of different ways, including by sending $100,000 via courier to his nephew in Dubai, who would later wire it to the hijackers in the U.S. (In the interim, KSM’s nephew hid the cash in a laundry bag stored under his bed.)

According to court documents filed in the case against him, starting in December 1998 and continuing until May 2001 Omar Abdi Mohamed wrote 65 checks—some as small as $370; others as large as $60,000—to Dahabshiil. The total amount, some $370,000, is roughly the same as what the 9/11 Commission estimated as the cost of the plot. When John Pistole, deputy assistant director of the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division, testified in 2003 before the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs, he acknowledged a “continuing investigation” into the “origin of the funding of 9/11 back to financial accounts in Pakistan.” When Pakistan’s CIA-equivalent raided Barre’s apartment in November 2001, its agents found that the Dahabshiil employee’s address book was full of aliases and phone numbers for senior Al Qaeda officials. They also interrupted Barre as he shredded documents.

Kreindler’s complaint and other government documents, including the indictment against Omar Abdi Mohamed, trace a circuitous route that would take hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Chicago office of the Al Qaeda-linked charity Global Relief on to San Diego and Omar Abdi Mohamed’s Western Somali Relief Agency, then through the money transfer service Dahabshiil to Karachi, Pakistan, where a waiting Khalid Sheikh Mohammed sent it to his nephew in Dubai, who put it into the pockets of the 19 men who would travel to the United States.

Kreindler’s team knows the chain they’ve put together is missing a link. They have no direct evidence that when Mohamed wrote checks to Dahabshiil from his charity’s bank accounts that they ended up in the Karachi branch. Yet they do have Barre, the Al Qaeda operative who set it up, telling U.S. investigators specifically that he received money from Somalis in the U.S.

Washington’s Secret History with the Muslim Brotherhood

Eisenhower officials knew what they were doing. In the battle against communism, they figured that religion was a force that US could make use of—the Soviet Union was atheist, while the United States supported religious freedom. Central Intelligence Agency analyses of Said Ramadan were quite blunt, calling him a “Phalangist” and a “fascist interested in the grouping of individuals for power.” But the White House went ahead and invited him anyway.

By the end of the decade, the CIA was overtly backing Ramadan. While it’s too simple to call him a US agent, in the 1950s and 1960s the United States supported him as he took over a mosque in Munich, kicking out local Muslims to build what would become one of the Brotherhood’s most important centers. Ramadan was more interested in spreading his Islamist agenda than fighting communism. In later years, he supported the Iranian revolution and likely aided the flight of a pro-Teheran activist who murdered one of the Shah’s diplomats

In the years after the September 11 attacks, the United States initially went after the Brotherhood, declaring many of its key members to be backers of terrorism. But by Bush’s second term, the US quietly changed its position.

The Bush administration devised a strategy to establish close relations with Muslim groups in Europe that were ideologically close to the Brotherhood, figuring that it could be an interlocutor in dealing with more radical groups, such as the home-grown extremists in Paris, London and Hamburg. So starting in 2005, the State Department launched an effort to woo the Brotherhood. In 2006, for example, it organized a conference in Brussels between these European Muslim Brothers and American Muslims, such as the Islamic Society of North America, who are considered close to the Brotherhood. All of this was backed by CIA analyses, with one from 2006 saying the Brotherhood featured “impressive internal dynamism, organization, and media savvy.” Despite the concerns of western allies that supporting the Brotherhood in Europe was too risky, the CIA pushed for cooperation.

Said Ramadan moved to Saudi Arabia where he was one of the original members of the constituent council of the Muslim World League. The League founded the International Islamic Relief Organization in 1978.

Gerhard von Mende (December 25, 1904 – December 16, 1963) was a Baltic German who was head of the Caucasus division at the Reich Ministry for the Occupied Eastern Territory, or Ostministerium, in Nazi Germany. He was a scholar on Asiatic and Muslim minorities within the Soviet Union and was considered the pioneer of mobilising them as a fifth column against the Communists, while being one of their staunchest advocates within Nazi Germany and post-war West Germany.

In 1956 von Mende increasingly became hostile toward the CIA following the creation of their front-group which would rival his RSEE, the American Committee for Liberation from Bolshevism. This group employed former Muslim Nazi Ibrahim Gacaoglu, who would also work for Radio Free Europe. von Mende however resented foreign interference with West German residents and believed that Muslims living in West Germany should be aligned with their operations. He brought in former Muslim S.S. officer Nurredin Nakibhodscha Namangani to be established as the Hauptimam of West Germany's Muslims, working on the payroll of the West German government.

In 1958 Namangani introduced an initiative called the Mosque Construction Commission, which eventually led to funding securing a home for the Muslims through the creation of a mosque in Munich.

However, by 1960, the commission in Munich had fallen under control of Said Ramadan, a U.S. asset and associate of Gacaoglu, who weakened the West German government's influence by introducing Munich as a center for European Muslims instead of just West German Muslims. Gacaoglu and the U.S. would use "new" revelations of the Holocaust to further weaken the credibility of von Mende and the RSEE, thus wrestling control of the fifth columnist Muslims from the West Germans in the end.

Is this why Sandy Berger stole copies of the Millennium Report from the 911 Commission archive
– Millennium bomber Ahmad Ressam testified in closed and open court trials relating to his Dec. 1999 arrest for trying to bring bomb-making materials across the Canadian border that attack plans, including hijackings and attacks on New York City targets, were ongoing.

Another Dar al-Hijrah tie to Alqaeda

Ahmed Omar Abu Ali is an American who was born in Houston, Texas, in March 1981 and raised in Falls Church, Virginia, Abu Ali was valedictorian of his class at the Islamic Saudi Academy high school in nearby Alexandria. Abu Ali entered the University of Maryland in the fall of 1999 as an electrical engineering major, and prayed at the Dar al-Hijrah mosque near Falls Church. However Ali suddenly withdrew in the middle of the 2000 spring semester to go to Saudi Arabia.

This was allegedly to study Islamic theology at the Islamic University of Medina however he soon ended up in the company of Al Qaeda leaders there. In June 2003, Abu Ali was arrested by Saudi authorities while taking exams at the Islamic University of Medina. In February 2005, Abu Ali was transferred to US custody pursuant to a criminal indictment, returned by a grand jury in the Eastern District of Virginia on February 3, 2005.

The indictment charged Abu Ali with two counts of providing material support to terrorists, two counts of providing material support to a terrorist organization (Al Qaeda), one count of contributing goods and services to Al Qaeda, and one count of receiving services from Al Qaeda. This was later amended to add charges of conspiracy to assassinate the President, conspiracy to hijack aircraft, and conspiracy to destroy aircraft.

The indictment alleged that Abu Ali had joined a terrorist cell in Medina, led by senior al-Qaeda members Ali Al-Faqasi and Zubayr Al-Rimi, and that among the plots they were developing were a plan to assassinate the President of the United States, and a plan to mount attacks using planes transiting through the US.
Hijackers who carried out just such a plot passed though Ali's old mosque, Dar al-Hijrah.

Zubayr al-Rimi was a militant in al-Qaeda's Saudi wing. On September 1, 2001, secretly traveled to Afghanistan where he met with militant leaders. In December, al-Rimi participated in the Battle of Tora Bora which saw Osama bin Laden escape from a snare set by American forces. He returned to Saudi Arabia in approximately January 2002, where, according to the story, he first meets Ahmed Omar Abu Ali in November 2002.

I am not sure what Ahmed Ali did in Saudi between Spring 2000 and November 2002.
The indictment actually reads "Beginning on a date unknown but by at least September 2002," and therefore he may well have been actively participating for years and therefore these individuals may be part of the 911 conspiracy.

Joint Intelligence report says FBI were told about Nawaf and Kahlid in 1999

In late 1999, NSA analyzed communications involving a suspected terrorist facility in the Middle East that included the names of Khaled and Nawaf. At this time, NSA did not associate the latter individual with the Nawaf al-Hazmi it had learned about in early 1999. Later, the two individuals [ ] were determined to be Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi, now known to be two of the September 11 hijackers. []. This information was passed to the CIA as well as the FBI in late 1999. In early 2000, assed additional information about Khalid to the CIA, FBI, FAA, the Departments of State, Treasury, Transportation, and Justice, and others in the U.S. Government.

Why are FBI claiming not to have heard about them?

The phone number there put into a database returns a woman named Senovia with a series of US military addresses.

Right at the top, also with an 858 number, is Saudi Naval officer Lafi al Harbi.

Is it possible these addresses, Beadnell and Mount Ada, which are close to each other, are commonly used by military personnel or Saudi government personnel.

Does anybody have a copy of the San Diego phone directory 2000 or 2001?

Evan Kohlman testimony that al-Kifah worked for Hekmatyar.

I have been provided with evidentiary documents by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Boston which appear to be copies of a letter addressed to Gulbuddin Hekmatyar on behalf of the Al-Kifah Refugee Center office in Boston. The letter makes mention of two previous face-to-face meetings, including one with Saifur Rahman Halimi (previously cited in this report as Hekmatyar’s representative in the West) and another that apparently took place in the context of Hekmatyar’s aforementioned conference with Arab mujahideen at Char Asyab near Kabul. According to the letter:

“To his presence the virtuous brother and prince, engineer Kalb Al-Deen Hikmatyar, May God protect him... We, those who love you, from the Boston Office write to you asking for your direction for us in matters concerning serving the Jihad for the cause of Allah. As you know we have vowed our support through your deputy, brother Saif Al-Rahman Haleemy, in New York two years ago.
- http://powerbase.info/images/9/93/Kohlmann%27s_Expert_Report_in_US_v._Muntasser_et_al.pdf

The man mentioned, Saif Halimi, went to the same mosque and lived in the same Queens Ny building as Najibullah Zazi (1).

Najibullah Zazi was arrested in September 2009 as part of a U.S. Al Qaeda group accused of planning suicide bombings on the New York City Subway system.
This plot also included Adnan el-Shukrijumah.

In June, 2010, anonymous U.S. counter-terrorism officials told the Associated Press that Najibullah Zazi had met with Adnann el-Shukrijumah in a camp in Pakistan. -
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adnan_Gulshair_el_Shukrijumah

So there is a connection here between the Al Kifah Centre and Adnan Shukrijumah who attended the Islamic Society of Sarasota at the time the Hamburg cell were in the area, according to Wissam Hammoud. Adnan's father Gulshair was said to be an associate of the Blind Sheikh.

3 terrorists all at the same US university at the same time.
who recruited who.

WASHINGTON – The brother-in-law of alleged terrorist
co-conspirator Sami al-Arian attended engineering
classes at the same college and time as the suspected
mastermind behind the Sept. 11 terror plot, records at
the North Carolina college show.

The overlap raises questions about the extent of
al-Arian’s ties to terrorist groups. He and his
brother-in-law, Mazen al-Najjar, have been accused by
federal authorities of supporting Hamas, a Palestinian
militia responsible for anti-Israeli suicide bombings,
through an elaborate network of terrorist front groups
and fund-raising arms.

Al-Najjar, a Palestinian refugee, was arrested in 1997
and deported last year. Al-Arian, who also attended
college in North Carolina, awaits trial on federal
conspiracy charges related to Mideast terrorist
activities. He was arrested last week.

The confluence of Islamic radicals – known then as
“the mullahs” – on the North Carolina Agricultural &
Technical State University (N.C. A&T) campus in
Greensboro also suggests the Sept. 11 conspiracy
traces its roots to North Carolina, not Florida, and
goes all the way back to the 1980s.


Connections to Kuwait
Khalid Sheikh was born or grew up in Kuwait
Al-Arian has said his family was approached by Kuwaiti intelligence in 1966.

CIA network
In 2002 Investigators traced funds from IIIT (CIA) to al-Arian, who had been accused of heading the U.S. wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

The UAE wants to arrest future 9/11 hijacker Ziad Jarrah, but US officials say they will track him instead, according to United Arab Emirates (UAE) officials. It is unknown if the US officials actually do so. On January 30, 2000, Jarrah is stopped and questioned as he is transiting through the airport in Dubai, UAE. Officials at the airport have agreed to help the CIA by monitoring or questioning suspicious militants passing through there

Re: Declassified:Examining what's in "the 28 pages" of the Joint Inquiry
« Reply #194 on: June 15, 2017, 12:41:02 PM »
Arthur Lowrie, an 'advisor' at MacDill AFB, home of Special Operations Command, says he was deceived by Sami Al Arian. Lowrie had worked hard to promote Al Arian and his organisation and helped him organise political roundtable discussions at the University of South Florida. This is before the FBI discovered Al Arian had run a Middle Eastern terrorist organisation.

Unfortunately this is not the first time US Special Forces, whose primary justification for existing is to fight terrorists, has been duped by actual terrorists.

In a remarkably similar story, Ali Mohamed was allowed to operate at Fort Bragg as a drill instructor and to participate in political discussions there whilst he was also helping to blow up the World Trace Centre for the Blind Sheikh and helping Osama bin Laden build the Al Qaeda organisation worldwide.

It has been reported that Mohamed's bizarre activities at Fort Bragg were protected by 'his supervisor' there, the Director of Middle East Studies, Norvell B. De Atkine.

De Atkie had graduated in 'Arab Studies' from the American University of Beirut, a hotbed of PLO activity. And not only was De Atkine in Egypt when the Sadat assassination happened, he was actually 100ft away when Ali Mohamed's cell carried it out. Sadat was assassinated because he had made peace with Israel and it was said of Sami Al Arians PIJ that they would launch a terror attack on Israel every time the Saudis wanted to sabotage the Middle East Peace Process.

De Atkine's response to 9/11 was to try and promote his favourite book, The Arab Mind, which he taught to all his students (and was taught to interrogators at Abu Ghraib). "One must understand the social and cultural environment in which they lived" he wrote "and this book does a great deal to further that understanding."

To understand them though, one must also understand how they operated: how infiltrated the West, how they infiltrated its institutions and who helped them out along the way and fortunately for those like De Atkine and Lowrie, there is no book for that.
