Mounir el-Motassadeq is spending his final weeks in prison for aiding terrorists in the September 11 attacks. Instead of freely walking the streets of Germany, he’ll be sent to Morocco, where his future is unclear.
Iranian officials, in a first, have admitted to facilitating the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the U.S. by secretly aiding the free travel of al Qaeda operatives who eventually went on to fly commercial airliners into the Twin Towers in New York City, according to new remarks from a senior Iranian official.
Mohammad-Javad Larijani, an international affairs assistant in the Iran’s judiciary, disclosed in Farsi-language remarks broadcast on Iran’s state-controlled television that Iranian intelligence officials secretly helped provide the al Qaeda attackers with passage and gave them refuge in the Islamic Republic, according to an English translation published by Al Arabiya.
Now you know why Obama cut them such a sweetheart deal.
Dwayne Morgan, the NDP Candidate in Scarborough North posted a tweet suggesting then president of the United States George W. Bush was involved in the 9/11 terror attacks.
A Syrian-born German national accused of recruiting 9/11 terrorists has been arrested while fighting in Syria, according to a senior commander.
‘Mohammed Haydar Zammar has been arrested by Kurdish security forces in northern Syria and is now being interrogated,’ a top Kurdish commander said, without providing further details.
Zammar, a career extremist in his mid-fifties, was mentioned several times in the 9/11 Commission’s report, which said he encouraged worshippers at a Hamburg mosque towards terrorism and alleged 9/11 financer Ramzi Binalshibh.
“He has been deprived of due process and the fair trial guarantees that would ordinarily apply within the judicial system of the United States.”
It said the prisoner, believed to be aged either 40 or 41, “should be released immediately and given an enforceable right to compensation and other reparations”.
Court documents recently filed by the government further rock the credibility of Russia Special Counsel Robert Mueller because they show that as FBI Director Mueller he worked to cover up the connection between a Florida Saudi family and the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The documents reveal that Mueller was likely involved in publicly releasing deceptive official agency statements about a secret investigation of the Saudis, who lived in Sarasota, with ties to the hijackers. A Florida journalism nonprofit uncovered the existence of the secret FBI investigation that was also kept from Congress.
Under Mueller’s leadership, the FBI tried to discredit the story, publicly countering that agents found no connection between the Sarasota Saudi family and the 2001 terrorist plot. The reality is that the FBI’s own files contained several reports that said the opposite, according to the Ft. Lauderdale-based news group’s ongoing investigation. Files obtained by reporters in the course of their lengthy probe reveal that federal agents found “many connections” between the family and “individuals associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001.” The FBI was forced to release the once-secret reports because the news group sued in federal court when the information wasn’t provided under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
The United States is seeking to extradite a German convict who allegedly gave al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden critical support before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, New York prosecutors said Wednesday.
Department of Justice officials accused Christian Ganczarski of conspiracy to kill US citizens, providing material support to terrorists and conspiracy to provide material support to al-Qaida.
Ganczarski, who was born in Poland and later converted to Islam, allegedly met multiple times with senior leaders of the terrorist organization between 1999 and 2001 and developed close personal ties with bin Laden.
And if they are, it’s all about Islamophobia.
“I’d like to know exactly, like, everything that happened, because I don’t know exactly how many planes there were,” another added. “I know the two twin towers fell, but I don’t know if anything else happened.”
On September 9, 2017, Paul Sperry of the New York Post dropped the biggest headline hint so far that, Yes, the Saudis plotted, trained, funded, ordered, and covered up the assault on America on 9/11.
The headline does not come out and actually say that the Saudis committed the greatest anti-American civilian atrocity 16 years ago. It just says that “the Saudis allegedly funded a “dry run” of the 9/11/01 attack two years before it was actually executed. But by now we know so much supportive evidence that we might as well tell the whole truth.
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the accused “architect” of the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001, will spend the 16th anniversary of the atrocity sitting in Guantánamo Bay, preparing for his 25th pre-trial hearing.
That hearing will take place next month. Military prosecutors’ latest estimate is that jury selection in Mohammed’s terrorism trial will begin in January 2019. Most interested experts think that is wildly optimistic, and are asking if a man arrested in Pakistan in 2003 will ever stand trial at all.
“It will take another two, three or four years to get the case to trial and it will take a year or so to try,” the 53-year-old’s lawyer, David Nevin, told the Guardian.
Who cares? A better question is why is he still alive?
Sixteen years later, why we’re not winning.
Sixteen years ago today a war was brought to our city streets by an enemy we already knew but misunderstood. The 9/11 attack may have been the ultimate “black swan” event: something that we should have known was coming and should have prepared for but didn’t.
There are many reasons for the failures to foresee and to prepare, some of which still apply to us today. They are reflected in our cultural attitudes, the way we have fought the war, and in the people we have chosen to be president since September 11. 2001.
They form the lessons we should have learned from this war and still haven’t.
“In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate,” a terrorist declares on the Flight 93 cockpit recording. That’s followed by the sounds of the terrorists assaulting a passenger.
“Please don’t hurt me,” he pleads. “Oh God.”
Monday marks the 16-year anniversary of the deadly September 11, 2001 terrorist attack, and “The Man in the Red Bandana” is one of the greatest stories from that day.
Far-right extremists more deadly.
