The Seekers; The birth and life of the
'9-11 Truth movement'
"Essentially, it's all about physics
and common sense. Cut steel, and buildings fall. Crash a plane, and
the Earth gets scarred. Fire a missile; see a hole. What's up must
come down, cause makes effect, and for the truth to set you free, it
must be freed itself.
Its name notwithstanding, the 9-11 Truth movement
tells a story—and is a story—about what happens when the government lies. Again,
it's simple physics: For every action, there's a reaction equal and opposite.
Everyone has a September 11 tale about how we
watched the events in "disbelief." But some people really didn't believe, and in
the immediate aftermath of the attacks their doubts took form on the Internet on

February 22, 2006 - The Penta-Lawn 2000! is featured in a Free Market
another angle is being presented on how the September 11, 2001 Pentagon crash of
American Airlines Flight 77 was a hoax. The website known as the "the web fairy"
begins with a sales-pitch: "Introducing the amazing new Penta-Lawn 2000! The
most The most resilient lawn ever! lawn ever! ... It's fire proof! ... It's skid
proof! ... It even repels plane debris!"
It then lists a long string of quotes from American mainstream media from
reportage that day, and notes that nearly all of them describe the crash as "a
landing on the ground, a skidding and an impact" with the Pentagon wall ... or
words to that effect. It then shows a series of before-and-after photos of the
lawn surrounding the Pentagon, especially near the alleged crash-site. "Just
think what this would do to your lawn after an explosion like this," the pitch
continues. "Plane debris, skid marks, fire burns, jet fuel, luggage, body parts,
yuck! You would have to shell out thousands of dollars to clean up this mess!
But wait, this is not your ordinary lawn!"
It then shows a picture of the turf surrounding the Pentagon, taken the same day
of the alleged crash (while they were putting out the fire, before they covered
the whole place with sand) and compares it to similar shots following plane
crashes including the one in Vladivostock. A picture is worth a thousand words
in this case.

March 1, 2006 - Judicial Watch Files Lawsuit Against Defense Department for
Withholding Video of 9/11 Attack on Pentagon
"Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and
prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it filed a
lawsuit on February 22, 2006 against the Department of Defense to
force the release of a video that allegedly shows United Flight 77
striking the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Judicial Watch seeks
the information in part to help put to rest conspiracy theories that
a government drone or missile hit the Pentagon rather than the
hijacked United airplane.
originally filed a Freedom of Information Act request on December 15, 2004,
seeking all records pertaining to camera recordings from the Sheraton National
Hotel, the Nexcomm/Citgo gas station, Pentagon security cameras and the Virginia
Department of Transportation. The Department of Defense admitted in a January
26, 2005 letter that it possessed a videotape responsive to Judicial Watch’s
request. However, the Pentagon advised that the video is exempt from release
because it is, “part of an ongoing investigation involving Zacarias Moussaoui.”
argues in its lawsuit that “there is no legal basis” for the DOD’s refusal to
release the videotape. First, while the Freedom of Information Act does allow
an exemption for ongoing law enforcement investigations, the Defense Department
does not have law enforcement authority over Moussaoui. That
belongs to the Department of Justice or the FBI. Second, the investigation of
Moussaoui is complete. He
pleaded guilty in April 2005
to conspiring with al-Qaida to fly planes into U.S. buildings.
Jury selection in Moussaoui’s death penalty trial is nearly finished, and
opening arguments are scheduled for March 6.
“There is no
legal or rational basis for the Department of Defense to withhold this video,”
said JW President Tom Fitton. “There may be nothing of importance on this tape,
but our experience has been that whenever the government takes extraordinary
measures to keep the lid on documents, it is worth investigating.”

original FOIA request is available for review on Judicial Watch’s
Internet site, www.judicialwatch.org." -

Police: Man Shot In Head During Uptown Robbery
"A 25-year-old man is in critical condition at the
Hennepin County Medical Center after a Saturday night shooting in Uptown.
The man was walking with his mother, sister and her friend after they finished
dinner in a restaurant at Hennepin Avenue and Lake Street.
According to police, two men approached the group about 10 p.m. at 31st Street
and Girard Avenue South. The suspects allegedly stole the mother's purse. Then,
even though the victims didn't put up a fight, the suspects allegedly fired two
shots, hitting the man in the head.
Kris Arenson, an inspector from the Minneapolis Police Department said, "Usually
when the purse is given up, or even if the purse isn't given up, we haven't had
any (people) that have been shot."
Police said the suspects immediately fled the scene, jumped into a white car and
headed south on Girard Avenue.
Police gave vague descriptions of the suspects, only saying they are men between
17 years old and 22 years old and were both wearing dark clothing." -

Police said on Saturday night, Zebuhr was walking to a parked car with family

She said that although the shooting is a tragedy, it was very unusual and
similar crimes rarely happen in that area.
Devens and other neighbors said the rising rate in burglaries and robberies in

20, 2006 - Senior FBI officials were warned about 70 times of 9/11 plot.
Agent: FBI warned 70 times of
9-11 plot; Operative who arrested Zacarias Moussaoui says he made superiors
aware of hijack plan
"An FBI agent testifying today
at the death penalty trial of Zacarias Moussaoui says he warned senior officials
about 70 times of fears that the confessed al-Qaida plotter planned to hijack an
Harry Samit, the agent who arrested Moussaoui, said he accused his superiors of
"criminal negligence" and "careerism" when questioned during a U.S. government
inquiry on Moussaoui's role in the 9-11 plot, according to Agence France-Presse.
The agent's testimony came as the death penalty trial resumed one week after
Judge Leonie Brinkema threatened to throw out the prosecution's case over
witness tampering. Friday, Brinkema agreed to continue if prosecution lawyers
use only uncontaminated witnesses.
The defense insists the government had known much more about the 9-11 plot than
Moussaoui but failed to take action to stop it.
In a memo presented by the defense during testimony, Samit warned that Moussaoui
was an Islamic fundamentalist who believed in martyrdom, was learning how to fly
a 747 jet and had a portable GPS navigation system, AFP reported. He also, the
agent pointed out, was armed with small knives and learning martial arts.
Samit was questioned today about the memo, which he sent to FBI headquarters in
Washington on Aug. 18, 2001, less than a month before the 9-11 attacks.
The agent said that when Moussaoui was arrested, he seemed to be in a hurry to
finish his 747 flight training on a simulator in Minnesota." -

9/11 Live: The NORAD Tapes
- Vanity Fair (08/01/06)
August 2, 2006 - Some of the 9/11 commission concluded that the Pentagon's
initial story of how it reacted to 9/11 may have been part of a deliberate
effort to mislead the commission and the public and debated referring the matter
to the Justice Department for a criminal investigation.
9/11 Panel Suspected Deception by Pentagon;
Allegations Brought to Inspectors General
"Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept.
11 panel concluded that the Pentagon's initial story of how it reacted to the
2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the
commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that
day, according to sources involved in the debate.
Suspicion of wrongdoing ran so deep that the 10-member commission, in a secret
meeting at the end of its tenure in summer 2004, debated referring the matter to
the Justice Department for criminal investigation, according to several
commission sources. Staff members and some commissioners thought that e-mails
and other evidence provided enough probable cause to believe that military and
aviation officials violated the law by making false statements to Congress and
to the commission, hoping to hide the bungled response to the hijackings, these
In the end, the panel agreed to a compromise,
turning over the allegations to the inspectors general for the Defense and
Transportation departments, who can make criminal referrals if they believe they
are warranted, officials said.
"We to this day don't know why NORAD [the North American Aerospace Command] told
us what they told us," said Thomas H. Kean, the former New Jersey Republican
governor who led the commission. "It was just so far from the truth. . . . It's
one of those loose ends that never got tied."
Although the commission's landmark report made it clear that the Defense
Department's early versions of events on the day of the attacks were inaccurate,
the revelation that it considered criminal referrals reveals how skeptically
those reports were viewed by the panel and provides a glimpse of the tension
between it and the Bush administration.
For more than two years after the attacks, officials with NORAD and the FAA
provided inaccurate information about the response to the hijackings in
testimony and media appearances. Authorities suggested that U.S. air defenses
had reacted quickly, that jets had been scrambled in response to the last two
hijackings and that fighters were prepared to shoot down United Airlines Flight
93 if it threatened Washington.
In fact, the commission reported a year later, audiotapes from NORAD's Northeast
headquarters and other evidence showed clearly that the military never had any
of the hijacked airliners in its sights and at one point chased a phantom
aircraft -- American Airlines Flight 11 -- long after it had crashed into the
World Trade Center.
Maj. Gen. Larry Arnold and Col. Alan Scott told the commission that NORAD had
begun tracking United 93 at 9:16 a.m., but the commission determined that the
airliner was not hijacked until 12 minutes later. The military was not aware of
the flight until after it had crashed in Pennsylvania.
These and other discrepancies did not become clear until the commission, forced
to use subpoenas, obtained audiotapes from the FAA and NORAD, officials said.
The agencies' reluctance to release the tapes -- along with e-mails, erroneous
public statements and other evidence -- led some of the panel's staff members
and commissioners to believe that authorities sought to mislead the commission
and the public about what happened on Sept. 11.
"I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described,"
John Farmer, a former New Jersey attorney general who led the staff inquiry into
events on Sept. 11, said in a recent interview. "The tapes told a radically
different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years. . .
. This is not spin. This is not true."
John F. Lehman, a Republican commission member and former Navy secretary, said
in a recent interview that he believed the panel may have been lied to but that
he did not believe the evidence was sufficient to support a criminal referral."

August 6, 2006 - Killtown's blogpost alleging that Val McClatchey's
infamous red barn smoke plume photo of the alleged crash of Flight 93 is either
a smoke plume from a different explosion originating much closer to her house, or
that the smoke plume was photoshopped on there makes headline news at Pittsburgh
Conspiracy theorists blog that Flight 93 photo
"Taken the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, seconds after United Airlines Flight 93
plunged into a nearby field, the eerie photo was, and still is, according to the
FBI, the closest thing it's got to an image of the crash itself.
Val McClatchey snapped the single picture with her new digital camera. The wife
and mother had been sitting on the edge of her sofa, clutching her second cup of
coffee and watching the smoking towers of the World Trade Center on TV, when she
heard the sudden surge of a plane engine, followed by a violent, house-shaking
boom. Mrs. McClatchey grabbed the camera and ran onto the front porch of her
house along Indian Lake.
"I didn't even aim. I was just like, 'Oh, my God,' " she said. She dropped the
camera, jolting the battery loose, then tried in vain to call her husband, son
and daughter. She had no idea what she'd captured until the state police put a
call out to people in the area, asking for photos, debris and other evidence.
She took a printout of her photo to the police, she said, and, within an hour,
FBI agents were at her house.
She copyrighted her photo and gave it a title, "End of Serenity." This would
later prove an apt description of what was in store for Mrs. McClatchey, 50. She
would find herself the target of 9/11 conspiracy theorists and involved in a
copyright lawsuit against The Associated Press.
During the next few years, the photo would appear in magazines and newspapers,
from Newsweek to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, with Mrs. McClatchey's permission.
It became part of a fund-raising brochure for the Flight 93 Memorial Fund.
Copies are available upon request, with proceeds going to the charity Heroic
Choices, formerly the Todd Beamer Foundation.
But Mrs. McClatchey's fame has recently taken a sour turn. The real estate agent
has recently become a target of bloggers calling themselves "9-11 researchers,"
who are seeking to prove that the U.S. government was complicit in the attacks
that brought down the Twin Towers, pierced the Pentagon and crashed United
Airlines Flight 93. "The End of Serenity" has turned out to be their smoking
The smoke plume doesn't line up right, they say. It is too large in the frame.
The smoke is characteristic of an ordnance blast, not a jet fuel fire, further
evidence that the government shot down Flight 93. They analyze wind direction,
debris patterns and camera trajectories, all in the service of the theory that
the crash was faked.
On a simple Google search, Mrs. McClatchey's name now pops up in the same
sentence as "total fraud."
"Val McClatchey has made it unmistakably clear to us that she intends to milk
her 9-11 claim to fame for all it's worth, truth be damned," writes Lisa Guliani,
of WingTV (World Independent News Group), who traveled to Stoystown to interview
"If the smoke plume was photo-shopped on there, then that could mean either that
the photo was simply a fraud by Val, or it was a fraud by her and the FBI and/or
other government agents since she did mention that the FBI did inspect the

Mrs. McClatchey was taken aback by the personal criticism by those who, she
said, "hide behind their aliases." -

CITGO Gas Station Cameras Near Pentagon
Evidently Did Not Capture Attack
"Judicial Watch, the public interest group that
investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today released a videotape
from the FBI that was taken from a CITGO gas station near the Pentagon. Many
believed the video would show American Airlines Flight 77 striking the Pentagon
on September 11, 2001. The videotape, which depicts views from the gas station's
six security cameras, shows that the CITGO cameras did not seem to capture the
actual attack. The tape was partially obscured by the FBI to protect the privacy
of individuals captured on video in the CITGO convenience store. The FBI
released the videotape as the result of a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information
Act request and related lawsuit.
Judicial Watch originally filed a Freedom of Information Act request on December
15, 2004 seeking all records pertaining to September 11, 2001 camera recordings
of the Pentagon attack from the Nexcomm/CITGO gas station, Pentagon security
cameras and the Virginia Department of Transportation. Judicial Watch filed a
lawsuit against the FBI on June 22, 2006. (In May 2006, The Department of

The FBI has agreed to release to Judicial Watch a videotape obtained from the
Doubletree Hotel near the Pentagon by November 9, 2006.
"With the release of this videotape, we are one step closer to completing the
public record on the September 11 terrorist attacks," said Judicial Watch
President Tom Fitton. "The CITGO tape evidently does not show the Pentagon
attack, which the American people can now see for themselves. This videotape was
the subject of intense public debate. Now that it has been released to the

RICE OK'D CLAIM OF 'SAFE AIR' AFTER 9/11 -
NY Post (09/24/06)
October 1, 2006 - A high quality video with no soundtrack and time stamped
January 8, 2000 emerges showing alleged 9/11 suicide pilots Mohammed Atta
(Flight 11) and Ziad Jarrah (Flight 93) which was obtain by UK's The Sunday
Times through a "previously tested channel".
The laughing 9/11 bombers; Exclusive film of
suicide pilots at Bin Laden’s HQ
"FILM of the ringleader of the September 11
hijackers reading his “martyrdom” will inside Afghanistan at Osama Bin Laden’s
headquarters has emerged five years after the Al-Qaeda outrage.
It is the first time that a videotape has appeared of Mohammed Atta — who flew
an American Airlines plane into the north tower of the World Trade Center — at a
training camp in Afghanistan. It fills in a significant gap in the timing of the
build-up to the attacks on the United States.
Dates on the tape show Atta was filmed on January 18, 2000, together with Ziad
Jarrah, the pilot of United Airlines flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania
after the passengers apparently stormed the flight deck.
The Sunday Times has obtained a copy of the video through a previously tested
channel. The tape has no soundtrack and a US source said lip readers had tried
without success to decipher what was being said.
Despite the deadly tasks the men had been assigned, they appear in high spirits,
laughing and smiling in front of the camera. Only when Atta, with an AK-47
propped on a wall beside him, reads a document marked in Arabic “the will”, does
he become solemn. Both are well groomed, without the haggard appearance of the
identity mugshots issued after September 11.
The high quality, unedited film shows Bin Laden addressing his followers at the
mud-walled complex near Kandahar. One of the main figures in the September 11
plot, Ramzi Binalshibh, is identifiable in the crowd, as is a bodyguard whose
task was to kill Bin Laden with two bullets to the head if he faced capture.
Dating on the tape indicates that the Al-Qaeda leader was filmed on January 8,
2000, 10 days before Atta and Jarrah recorded their wills.
American and German investigators have struggled to find evidence of Atta’s
whereabouts in January 2000 after he disappeared from Hamburg. The hour-long
tape places him in Afghanistan at a decisive moment in the development of the
conspiracy when he was given operational command. Months later both he and
Jarrah enrolled at flying schools in America.
Investigators have also puzzled over the fact that unlike the rest of the
hijackers — most of whom were young Saudi fundamentalists — Atta and Jarrah were
well educated and appeared to fit into western society while studying in
Germany. The video indicates how easily they slipped from a western identity to
a fundamentalist one. It also shows up the subterfuge they maintained in Germany
and America that they did not know each other, all part of evading detection." -

Silverstein a mixed verdict in his ongoing insurance payment battle by affirming

Developer gets mixed ruling on WTC case; Court
affirms some, but not all, jury decisions viewing 9/11 as 2 'events.'
"A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday handed World
Trade Center leaseholder Larry Silverstein a mixed verdict in his ongoing battle
to collect billions of dollars in claims from the complex's insurers.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit affirmed previous jury decisions
which forced some insurers to treat the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks as two separate
events, but allowed others to treat it as a single event due to the wording of
The ruling means that Silverstein could collect
some $1.1 billion in additional damages from insurers including Allianz, Zurich
American Insurance and Travelers Indemnity Co.
But others, including American International Group Inc.'s (Charts) Lexington
unit, Swiss Re, and Lloyd's of London, will pay on the single-event basis.
Wednesday's decision leaves Silverstein with less than $5 billion to redevelop
the complex, which anchored Manhattan's financial district, instead of the $7
billion he wanted.
But both sides declared victory in the court's ruling.
Silverstein, who leased the World Trade Center
just two months before it was destroyed, faulted the insurers for the protracted
battle. State and city officials say the insurers have repeatedly delayed the
rebuilding of the complex.
Stuart Cotton, an attorney who represented AIG's Lexington unit, one of the
winning insurers, said most of those carriers had already paid out the nearly
$2.5 billion they owed to Silverstein.
The other insurers, who already owe $1 billion, now must pay another $1.1
billion, depending on whether Silverstein can prove his damages were that high,
said Cotton, a partner in Mound, Cotton, Wollan & Greengrass in New York City.
Silverstein's insurance battles are not over. Two
firms, Allianz Insurance Company and Gulf Insurance Company still threaten to
withheld payments due to Silverstein's new accord with the land-owning Port
Authority of New York and New Jersey, a Silverstein spokesman said.
Most of the insurers who raised this issue several months ago have backed down."

Hotel security video shows 9/11 Pentagon blast,
but no plane
"A hotel security camera video released by the U.S. government showed the
explosion that followed the crash of American Airlines Flight 77 into the
Pentagon on September 11, 2001, but the low-quality recording did not capture an
image of the 757 jetliner.
The video, recorded by a security camera at the Doubletree Hotel in Arlington,
was released to public interest group Judicial Watch and others who filed a
lawsuit seeking the tape and other videos from that day.
CNN filed a Freedom of Information request for the video in February 2002, after
the manager of the hotel disclosed its existence to CNN Senior Pentagon
Correspondent Jamie McIntyre and said it had been confiscated by the FBI. CNN's
FOI request was denied because at the time the tape was considered evidence in
the investigation of Zacarias Moussaoui, who has since been convicted.
There was speculation that this video might show the American Airlines 757
jetliner before it crashed, but a close examination by CNN only revealed the
subsequent explosion and no image of the jet. The only known record of the plane
is on images from the Pentagon security camera, first broadcast by CNN in March
of 2002, and officially released in their entirety May of this year." -

had lived in for a month. Wendy Burlingame's boyfriend,
an Army veteran and her former fiancé, said they both

Fire claims life of daughter of airline pilot
killed on 9/11
"Authorities have identified a woman who perished
in a high-rise fire here early Tuesday as the daughter of an airline pilot whose
plane was hijacked on 9/11 and crashed into the Pentagon.
Wendy Burlingame, 32, died of smoke inhalation
when fire swept through her 10th-floor apartment in the 44-story Galaxy Towers
complex, according to a preliminary report by investigators.
Burlingame was the only daughter of Charles F. Burlingame III, who was the pilot
of American Airlines Flight 77 on Sept. 11, 2001, her uncle, Mark Burlingame,
Wendy Burlingame's death was being investigated as a suspicious death, according
to Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio.
Her live-in boyfriend, whose name was not released by authorities, was also in
the apartment when the fire started shortly before midnight Monday,
According to investigators, the boyfriend told them that he and Burlingame had
tried to extinguish the fire with water from a sink. When tried to flee, the
boyfriend made it into the hallway, but accidentally shut and locked the front
door before realizing that Burlingame was not right behind him. He wasn't able
to get back in.
As firefighters rushed into the 44-story building to put out the blaze, the
building resident assigned as fire warden for the night found the boyfriend
outside the apartment door, visibly shaken, and led him to safety.
Firefighters found Burlingame's body in a hallway between the kitchen and a
bedroom. Her two dogs, a 4-year-old pit bull and a pit bull puppy, also died.
Preliminary reports indicated Burlingame died from smoke inhalation, and there
was no indication of additional trauma to her body, said DeFazio, who said an
autopsy and toxicology test might reveal more.
Burlingame had moved to Guttenberg from Pittsburgh several months ago, her uncle
Daughter of 9/11 Flight Pilot Is Found Dead
After a Fire
"The woman, Wendy Burlingame, 32, was discovered
by firefighters in a short hallway between the kitchen and the bedroom of her
10th-floor apartment where the four-alarm fire began, said Edward DeFazio, the
Hudson County prosecutor. Mr. DeFazio said the fire, which law enforcement
officials are calling suspicious, began shortly after midnight in the apartment
Ms. Burlingame shared with her companion and was still under investigation, as
was the cause of Ms. Burlingame’s death. No one else was injured in the fire,
Mr. DeFazio said.
Mr. DeFazio said her companion of three years was among several people being
interviewed in connection with her death. He would not identify the companion,
but tenants in the complex identified him as Kevin Roderick.
Sebastian Rojas, 27, lives downstairs from Mr. Roderick. He said that while he
did not know Mr. Roderick and Ms. Burlingame well, they were “real late-night
people” whose footsteps, and two dogs, he heard constantly above his head.
The two dogs were also found dead in the home, Mr. DeFazio said.
Shortly before the fire erupted, Mr. Rojas said, there were “louder noises than
usual” coming from the apartment upstairs, “like somebody running around up
there, like somebody doing something up there in a rush.”
Then he said he heard a thud — “like somebody dropped something”— and three or
four minutes later the building’s fire alarm sounded. Mr. Rojas said that within
minutes his apartment filled with smoke. He then safely left the building." -

"The activist Muslim American Society (MAS) issued
a press release within hours of the incident, demanding an apology and
announcing a "pray-in" at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C. Standing
just a short distance from the Pentagon, where five years ago black plumes of
smoke from the crash of American Airlines flight 77 could be seen for miles, the
assembled demonstrators complained that African-American Muslims, accustomed to
"driving while black," must now cope with the injustice of "flying while
Muslim." This brazen two-step is racial politics at its worst; none of the imams
are African-American. MAS, which teaches an "Activist Training" program with
lessons on "how to talk to the media," must have been thrilled when one cable
news outfit, suckered by the rhetoric, compared the imams' conduct to that of
civil rights icon Rosa Parks, who refused to give up her bus seat in the face of
institutional racism. One wonders what the parents of the three 11-year-olds who
died on flight 77--all African-American kids on a National Geographic field
trip--would make of this stunning comparison.

"On June 5, 2006, the Muckraker Report contacted
the FBI Headquarters, (202) 324-3000, to learn why Bin Laden’s Most Wanted
poster did not indicate that Usama was also wanted in connection with 9/11. The
Muckraker Report spoke with Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the
FBI. When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on Bin Laden’s Most Wanted web
page, Tomb said, “The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden’s Most
Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to
Surprised by the ease in which this FBI spokesman made such an astonishing
statement, I asked, “How this was possible?” Tomb continued, “Bin Laden has not
been formally charged in connection to 9/11.” I asked, “How does that work?”
Tomb continued, “The FBI gathers evidence. Once evidence is gathered, it is
turned over to the Department of Justice. The Department of Justice than decides
whether it has enough evidence to present to a federal grand jury. In the case
of the 1998 United States Embassies being bombed, Bin Laden has been formally
indicted and charged by a grand jury. He has not been formally indicted and
charged in connection with 9/11 because the FBI has no hard evidence connected
Bin Laden to 9/11.” -
FBI: Bin Laden Not Wanted for 9/11?
"The FBI's "Most Wanted Terrorists" web page does
not state that Bin Laden is wanted for the September 11, 2001 attacks on the
World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
The FBI page states: "Usama Bin Laden is wanted in connection with the August 7,
1998, bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and
Nairobi, Kenya. These attacks killed over 200 people. In addition, Bin Laden is
a suspect in other terrorist attacks throughout the world."
When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on the FBI's web page, Rex Tomb of
the FBI's public affairs unit is reported to have said, "The reason why 9/11 is
not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden's Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no
hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11."
"On September 20 2001," according to the Guardian, "the Taliban offered to hand
Osama bin Laden to a neutral Islamic country for trial if the US presented them
with evidence that he was responsible for the attacks on New York and
Washington. The US rejected the offer."
On September 23, 2001 the BBC reported that four of the hijack "suspects" -
Waleed Al Shehri, Abdulaziz Al Omari, Saeed Alghamdi, and possibly Khalid Al
Midhar - were alive, and that FBI Director Robert Mueller acknowledged "the
identity of several of the suicide hijackers is in doubt."
Bin Laden, in a September 28, 2001 interview with the Pakistani newspaper Ummat,
is reported to have said: "I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the
FBI Director Robert Mueller, in a speech at the Commonwealth Club on April 19,
2002, said: "In our investigation, we have not uncovered a single piece of paper
- either here in the United States, or in the treasure trove of information that
has turned up in Afghanistan and elsewhere - that mentioned any aspect of the
September 11 plot."
The evidence against Bin Laden, promised by Secretary of State Colin Powell on
September 23, 2001, has yet to be made available to the public.
Bin Laden is the "prime suspect" in the September 11 attacks, said President
Bush on September 17, 2001, and he pledged to capture him "dead or alive." -

Bin Laden, Most Wanted For Embassy Bombings?
"Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden is a longtime and
prominent member of the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted" list, which notes his role as
the suspected mastermind of the deadly U.S. embassy bombings in East Africa on
Aug. 7, 1998.
But another more infamous date -- Sept. 11, 2001 -- is nowhere to be found on
the same FBI notice.
The curious omission underscores the Justice
Department's decision, so far, to not seek formal criminal charges against bin
Laden for approving al-Qaeda's most notorious and successful terrorist attack.
The notice says bin Laden is "a suspect in other terrorist attacks throughout
the world" but does not provide details.
The absence has also provided fodder for conspiracy theorists who think the U.S.
government or another power was behind the Sept. 11 hijackings. From this point
of view, the lack of a Sept. 11 reference suggests that the connection to al-Qaeda
Exhaustive government and independent investigations have concluded otherwise,
of course, and bin Laden and other al-Qaeda leaders have proudly taken
responsibility for the hijackings. FBI officials say the wanted poster merely
reflects the government's long-standing practice of relying on actual criminal
charges in the notices.
"There's no mystery here," said FBI spokesman Rex Tomb. "They could add 9/11 on
there, but they have not because they don't need to at this point. . . . There
is a logic to it."
David N. Kelley, the former U.S. attorney in New York who oversaw terrorism
cases when bin Laden was indicted for the embassy bombings there in 1998, said
he is not at all surprised by the lack of a reference to Sept. 11 on the
official wanted poster. Kelley said the issue is a matter of legal restrictions
and the need to be fair to any defendant.
Bin Laden was placed on the Ten Most Wanted list in June 1999 after being
indicted for murder, conspiracy and other charges in connection with the embassy
bombings, and a $5 million reward was put on his head at that time. The listing
was updated after Sept. 11, 2001, to include a higher reward of $25 million, but
no mention of the attacks was added.
The FBI maintains a separate "Most Wanted Terrorists" list, which includes bin
Laden and 25 others who have been indicted in U.S. federal courts in connection
with terror plots. But this second bin Laden listing also makes no mention of
"The indictments currently listed on the posters allow them to be arrested and
brought to justice," the FBI says in a note accompanying the terrorist list on
its Web site. "Future indictments may be handed down as various investigations
proceed in connection to other terrorist incidents, for example, the terrorist
attacks on September 11, 2001." -
