(source: Christopher J. Petherick -American Free Press)From photos of all of those that perished on that flight, it is clear that noneare even “Arab looking.” This seems to rule out Arabs sneaking aboard underassumed names...."URL: http://www.physics911.net /olmsted”But he overlooks the fact that the FBI made mistakes with regard to identity earlyon in the case before they could double check identity information and also due totheir dealing with unfamiliar name types – so what? Now, let’s look at realityafter they had time to shift through all the data and get familiar with unfamiliarname types. The first hijackers to arrive in the United States were Khalid al-Mihdhar andNawaf al-Hazmi, who settled in the San Diego area in January 2000. They werefollowed by Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi, and Ziad Jarrah, who all arrived earlyin the summer of 2000, in order to undertake flight training in south Florida. Thefourth pilot, Hani Hanjour, arrived in San Diego in December 2000. The othermuscle hijackers, who were trained to help overpower and take over the aircraft,all arrived in the spring and early summer of 2001. [[Now today as we all know,they are dead.]] Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi were both experienced and respectedjihadists in the eyes of al-Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden. Mihdhar and Hazmi bothhad previous experience fighting on Bosnia, and had trained during the 1990s atcamps in Afghanistan. When Bin Laden committed to the September 11 attacks plotidea, he assigned both Mihdhar and Hazmi to the plot. Both were so eager toparticipate in operations within the United States, that they obtained visas inApril 1999. Once selected, Mihdhar and Hazmi were sent to the Mes Aynaktraining camp in Afghanistan. In late 1999, Hazmi, Attash and Yemeni went toKarachi, Pakistan to see Mohammed, who instructed them on Western culture andtravel; however, Mihdhar did not go to Karachi, instead returning to Yemen. Two flight attendants called the American Airlines [[Flight 11]] reservationdesk during the hijacking. Betty Ong reported that "the four hijackers had comefrom first-class seats: 2A, 2B, 9A, and 9B." Flight attendant Amy Sweeneycalled a flight services manager at Logan Airport and described them as MiddleEastern. She gave the staff the seat numbers and they pulled up the ticket andcredit card info of the hijackers, identifying Mohamed Atta al-Sayed. Two hijackers, Hani Hanjour and Majed Moqed were identified by clerks ashaving bought single, first-class tickets for Flight 77 from Advance TravelService in Totowa, NJ with $1,842.25 in cash. Two of the passengers had been on the FBI's terrorist-alert list: KhalidAlmihdhar and Nawaf Alhazmi. [[Lax check in or they would have been identifiedbefore boarding.]] Forensic remains of the five hijackers were found at the Pentagon, along withremains of the victims.
