The USA TV network NBC aired, on Monday 07/26/2009 evening, the first chapter of a new TV series "The Wanted" aimed to push the issue of leaders and supporters of terrorist organizations and especially those linked to The 9/11, who are still free and lives openly around the world. The first chapter was focused on Mamoun Darkazanli one of the financiers of the 9/11 attacks, there are 3 more chapters on him yet to air. See Mamoun Darkazanli Interpol arrest warrant, click here arrest warrant issued by Madrid (Court NR 5) Spain.
Mamoun Darkazanli Import-Export Company or Darkazanli Export-Import Sonderposten, in Hamburg, are under sanction, as affiliates or supporters of al-Qaida, by the United Nations, by the European Union, and by the United States Treasury.
The Twaik Group and Rawasin Media Productions, both based in Riyadh, the Saudi capital, have served as fronts for the Saudi General Intelligence Directorate, according to an inquiry by Germany's foreign intelligence service, the BND, Twaik, a $100 million-a-year conglomerate, has diverse holdings inside and outside Saudi Arabia.
Twaik deposited more than $250,000 in bank accounts controlled by Mamoun Darkazanli, a Syrian-born Hamburg businessman and longtime Al Qaeda associate with close ties to the Sept. 11 hijackers during their years in the northern port city of Hamburg. Abdulrahman Al-Fahhad, then the Twaik executive responsible for the company's rental-car operations in the Balkans, acknowledged hiring Darkazanli in 1995 to supply cars from Germany for Twaik's branch office in Albania. The money, Al-Fahhad said, had been for Darkazanli's use in purchasing those cars. Al-Fahhad also acknowledged hiring Seyam to manage Twaik's rental-car office in nearby Bosnia-Herzegovina. In Hamburg GR, 1998 to 1999, Mohammed Atta found employment selling used cars in the open air car market on Feld Street financed and backed with cars from Mamoun Darkazanli, he lived at 54 Marienstrasse, Hamburg, Germany.
Suspects Used German Rental As Headquarters; Police Believe at Least 2 Hijackers Were Among Tenants in Hamburg. Peter Finn, Washington Post Foreign Service, Saturday September 15, 2001, page A15....MOHAMED ATTA WAS A USED CAR DEALER IN HAMBURG. At the university and in his work as a car dealer, Atta gave no indication to casual acquaintances of having extremist beliefs. “He made such a friendly impression,” said Abdullah Bozkurt, 59, a dealer who knew Atta from the open-air car market on Hamburg’s Feld Street, where both traded. One of the cell’s financier, was another native Syrian, Muhammed Galeb Kalaje Zouaydi. He ran construction and real estate companies in Madrid as fronts to receive and funnel money to pay for al-Qaida operations. Some $3.1 million entrusted to Zouaydi by “Islamic investors” inside and outside Spain is unaccounted for, the indictment charged.
The CIA first became interested in Mamoun Darkazanli in 1993. The FBI shows interest in Darkazanli after al-Qaeda operatives Wadih El Hage and Mamdouh Mahmud Salim (a.k.a. Abu Hajer) are arrested in late 1998. According to FBI documents, Darkazanli’s fax and telephone numbers are discovered in El Hage’s address book. Darkazanli’s Deutsche Bank account number is found in the book as well. [CNN, 10/16/2001] El-Hage had created a number of shell companies as fronts for al-Qaeda activities, and one of these uses the address of Darkazanli’s apartment. Further, El-Hage’s business card shows Darkazanli’s Hamburg address. The FBI also discovers that Darkazanli has power of attorney over a bank account belonging to Salim, a high-ranking al-Qaeda member. El Hage will later be convicted for his role in the 1998 US embassy bombings, and Salim will remain in US custody. [US Congress, 7/24/2003, pp. 157 ] By this time, Darkazanli is associating with members of the Hamburg al-Qaeda cell, and may be a member of the cell himself.
In March 1995, Darkazanli co-signed the opening of a Deutsche Bank account for Mamdouh Mahmud Salim, identified by the CIA as chief of bin Laden's computer operations and weapons procurement, according to news reports. Salim is currently facing charges in the U.S. for the 1988 bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa. Darkazanli told several news outlets that he was unaware of Salim's association with Osama bin Laden.
Investigators say bank records show that Darkazanli also had business dealings with an Albanian-based rental-car operation that is part of a Saudi Arabia-based company (Twaik Group) with suspected ties to Al Qaeda. Bank records, according to news reports, also indicate that Darkazanli transferred money to the head of the Global Relief Foundation in Europe, which is suspected by the U.S. Treasury Department of providing support to Al Qaeda.
Mamoun Darkazanli is probably one of the most interesting terrorists in the al Qaeda network he was featured on NBC "The Wanted". In addition to the financial assistance he provided the al Qaeda’s Hamburg cell for the 9/11 attacks, Darkazanli compiled one of the more intriguing dossiers you will read.
Darkazanli was initially a member of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood (SMB), which was once staunchly opposed to the Assad family's regime and, in fact, sponsored by Saddam's government, among others. The Syrian government, however, went through a couple of phases of rapprochement with the SMB. And SMB elements abroad ended up working for or with Syrian intelligence on some occasions. In all probability, Darkazanli and his fellow Syrian, Mohammed Zammar, who recruited lead 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta for al Qaeda, were both such SMB elements.
They ran the al Qaeda Hamburg cell, but prior to that they worked for a company called Tatex Trading. Tatex Trading was run by Abdul Matin Tatari a longtime backer of the Assad family (Syria). Tatari's eldest son was actually close with Mohammed Atta. Abdul Matin Tatari the Syrian in charge of Tatex, admits that his company had employed Mohammed Haydar Zammar and Mamoun Darkazanli, both of whom have been tied to the Hamburg al-Qaeda cell. Further, the Chicago Tribune claims, “Investigators also say Mohamed Atta himself worked for a time at Tatex, something Tatari vehemently denies. Tatex had only two shareholders. One of them was Mohamad Majed Said, who was the head of the Syrian intelligence service from 1987 to 1994. In 2001, Said was also a member of the Syrian National Security Council the government's chief security apparatus. But Tatari admits that one of his sons signed Atta’s petition to establish an Islamic ‘study group’ at Hamburg’s Technical University that served as a rendezvous for the hijackers and their supporters.” Tatari’s son took trips with Mounir El Motassadeq, who also has been tied to the Hamburg cell. Tatari, Zammar, Darkazanli, and Atta all are believed to be members of the Syrian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, a secret society banned in Egypt. All of this, and more, is why German intelligence officials have openly talked about "The Syrian Connection" to 9/11.
Darkazanli is still a free man. The Germans have refused to extradite him to Spain to stand trial for his involvement with the 3/11 Madrid train bombers and his other al-Qaeda ties. After being captured in Morocco, Zammar was transferred to the Syrians with the blessing of the Bush administration. Zammar’s transfer to the Syrians is one of the more bizarre episodes in the war on terror because it ensured that American investigators would not have direct access to him. There is simply no way the Syrians are going to tell us what Zammar and Darkzanli were really doing while working for Tatex, or how they ended up working for a Syrian intelligence front company. One last thing: According to German intelligence, Darkazanli again, who helped finance 9/11 was involved in illicit trade deals with the Iraqi regime under the oil-for-food program. Darkazanli shipped mercury heat lamps through a Jordanian intermediary to Saddam's government in Iraq.
"The Syrian Connection" to Iraq and Al-Qaeda, August 22, 2009 DAMASCUS SYRIA, In a high-rise apartment block in a smart Damascus neighborhood, there is a room with a portrait of Saddam Hussein on one wall and on another a photograph of the former dictator smiling as he receives a medal from Izzat Ibrahim al Douri, his old right-hand man and the current figurehead of the Iraq insurgency. The room is used for meetings by the Iraqi Baath Party, still fighting against US troops in the country, and members of other militant groups involved with the Supreme Leadership for Jihad and Liberation, a network of more than half a dozen insurgent organizations and Al-Qaeda. The Baathists, now led by Izzat al Douri, a red-haired senior aide to Saddam, have continued to play a role in the Iraq insurgency, according to the US military and the Iraqi authorities, although exactly how much power they actually wield on the ground is unclear.
Al-Qaeda and Saddam Baathist alliance blamed for Baghdad truck bombings that kill over 100 on August 19th 2009. Two truck bombs that killed over 100 people in Baghdad on Wednesday appears to be the handiwork of al-Qaeda, according to U.S. military specialists. But Iraqi’s Shiite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki took it a step further by pointing the finger at an unholy Sunni alliance between al-Qaeda and Saddam Baathist loyalists as the culprits of this most recent carnage, from Syria.
