9/10 Memento Purchased by Taha "Saleh" Mutaher a 'Botched' Clue in 9/11 Terror Puzzle in New York City.

NY POST....Take a close look at the date on this unused ticket to the World Trade Center observation deck: Sept. 10, 2001. The macabre memento, purchased by Yemeni tobacco smuggler Taha "Saleh" Mutaher, a Yemeni national, less than 24 hours before the Twin Towers went down, suggests that the ex-con knew about the pending 9/11 strikes, former NYPD terrorism cops say.

But Mutaher, who kept the ticket folded in his wallet and had access to flight manuals owned by a relative with whom he lived in Brooklyn, was never charged with terrorist crimes or even grilled by the feds, the ex-cops say.  "We think he had information that could have been valuable," one said. "We'd like to believe that the feds scooped up guys like Mutaher and took appropriate action. Unfortunately, they didn't do a thing. They were not proactive. They were not even reactive."

The former terrorism investigators -- who busted Mutaher in 2003 but were forced to hand him off to federal ATF agents -- are asking what happened to the Bay Ridge resident in light of last week's news that the FBI has been hunting for three suspects who might have helped the 9/11 plotters but got away.

FBI launches manhunt for the 9/11 gang that got away MOHAMED ALI MOHAMED AL MANSOORI, MESHAL ALHAJRI, FAHAD ABDULLA, ALI ALFEHAIDThe FBI has launched a manhunt for a previously unknown team of men suspected to be part of the 9/11 attacks, the Daily Telegraph can disclose. Secret documents reveal that the three Qatari men, MESHAL ALHAJRI, FAHAD ABDULLA, ALI ALFEHAID conducted surveillance on the targets, provided “support” to the plotters and had tickets for a flight to Washington on the eve of the 9/11 atrocities. The suspected terrorists flew from London to New York on a British Airways flight three weeks before the attacks.

Investigators are also hunting a fourth man, Mohamed Al Mansoori, who they say supported the alleged terrorist cell while they were in the US. Mohamed Al Mansoori, who is from the United Arab Emirates, previously lived in Long Beach, Los Angeles. His current location is also unknown, and US officials recommended that he is put on an international terror watch list because he “may pose a threat to aviation in the US and abroad”. Mohamed Al Mansoori also had listed address’s in Irvine, La Mesa and Corona CA.

Taha Mutaher is not one of the three, but drew intense police scrutiny in the aftermath of the World Trade Center attacks. The 20-something Taha "Saleh" Mutaher, a Yemeni immigrant, was nabbed for running untaxed cigarettes to the city, pleaded guilty to contraband trafficking and did eight months in a federal prison in Virginia, see more info below.

Inmate records from the Federal Bureau of Prisons, (all Federal Prisons in the USA), have no record of Taha "Saleh" Mutaher, Taha Saleh or Taha Mutaher, see link click here, why did the Fed's scrub his prison record.
FOR RELEASE:  IMMEDIATE, Friday  May 2, 2003  New York State Tax and Finance Commissioner Arthur J. Roth today announced the arrest of 12 men on various criminal charges relating to a vast smuggling operation that provided counterfeit and bootleg cigarettes to the New York Metropolitan region.

Tax Enforcement Agents from the Department’s Petroleum, Alcohol and Tobacco Bureau initiated an investigation into the increase in out-of-state and counterfeit stamped cigarettes that were appearing in various retail locations in New York City. Acting on this information, the Tax Department moved from focusing on retail enforcement to wholesale enforcement.

By working with other law enforcement agencies; including the New York State Police, Federal Bureau of Investigation, United States Secret Service, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Internal Revenue Service, Immigration and Naturalization Service, Virginia’s Division of Alcohol Beverage Control, and US Attorney’s offices in New York and Virginia, Department of Taxation and Finance investigators were able to piece together an elaborate black market that moved millions of dollars of counterfeit tobacco products into the State of New York.

Posing as out-of-state wholesalers, Tax Department agents placed advertisements in New York area papers offering cheap cigarettes for sale outside the State of New York and waited for replies. In short order, Tax Department agents were contacted and were asked to supply shipments of cigarettes ranging in value from $70,000 to $350,000. All transactions were in excess of 300 cartons and were paid for in U.S. currency. A total of 71,467 cartons were purchased by the suspects for $2,167,640.00, with a resulting tax loss to New York State and New York City of approximately $2,452,000.00.

Buyers traveled to Virginia where they met with undercover agents and took delivery of the product, always paying cash. All transactions between the wholesale front and buyers were recorded with video and audio tape. The buyers then transported the product to New York State and sold them to retailers without appropriate New York State tax stamps or with counterfeit stamps. Bootleggers often buy their product in Virginia due to Virginia’s low 25 cent per carton tax.

Individuals arrested pursuant to this investigation are:
Aniboris Taveras of New York City
Yusef Rahman of New York City
Dahesh Hamad of Maryland
Amin Hamad of Maryland
Mofid Saleh of Virginia
Saleh Nagi of New York City
Hassan Harajli of New York City
Hamza Zabarah of Virginia
Talal Rafiek of New York City
Redwan Ali-Al Sulaiti of Virginia
Raul Mojica of Virginia.
Pres. George Bush Was the Target Of An Al-Qaeda Assassination Attempt On September 11th 2001 in Sarasota Florida. Pres. George Bush Was the Target Of An Al-Qaeda Assassination Attempt On September 11th 2001 in Sarasota Florida. see link

By now, most everyone knows President George W. Bush began that fateful day, Sept. 11, on Longboat Key Sarasota Fl, but the FBI is now investigating whether terrorists also began that fateful day here on the island.

At about 6 a.m. Sept. 11, Longboat Key Fire Marshall Carroll Mooneyhan was at the front desk of the Colony Beach & Tennis Resort as Bush prepared for his morning jog. From that vantage point, Mooneyhan overheard a strange exchange between a Colony receptionist and security guard.

A van occupied by men of Middle Eastern descent had pulled up to the Colony stating they had a “poolside” interview with the president, Mooneyhan said. The self-proclaimed reporters then asked for a Secret Service agent by name. Guards from security relayed the request to the receptionist, who had not heard of either the agent or plans for an interview, Mooneyhan said.

The receptionist gave the phone over to a nearby Secret Service agent, who said the same thing: no one knew of an agent by that name or of any poolside interview.  Zainelabdeen Ibrahim Omer called Sarasota police on Sept. 11 at 4:07 am, see police report, hours before Bush left town with concerns about 3 Sudaneese men in town led by “Ghandi” who had made violent threats.” see report

"Zainelabdeen Ibrahim Omer, DOB 1/17/1967, see Sarasota Police report above, was living on Parliament St in San Antonio Texas in June of 2001 and appears to have moved to 2566 Hunters Glen Sarasota Fl (apartment complex) sometime prior to the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks, from where he called the cops on his cell phone 941-365-5755".

Several hours before the alleged assassination attempt took place of President Bush on 9/11/01, Zaine labdeen Ibrahim Omer delivered his warning. Its right there in black and white in the police report, which was taken at 4.07 AM on the morning of September 11. see report

The Sarasota police immediately called in Secret Service agents guarding the President, who was spending the night at the Colony Beach & Tennis Resort, on Longboat Key, just off Sarasota.Within hours Secret Service agents were searching an apartment in Sarasota, where they took a number of Sudanese men into custody (see Sarasota Police report 9/11/01 above) . They arrested three occupants from Sudan; they were questioned for the next ten hours, according to one, Fathel Rahman Omer.
Two 9/11 hijackers on Longboat Key Sarasota Fl September 7th, 2001?  By Shay Sullivan, City Editor, Wednesday, November 21, 2001

If three eyewitnesses are correct, terrorist hijacker Mohamed Atta came to the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites-Longboat Key Sept. 7 — the day the media announced President George W. Bush would be coming to the area Sept. 11 to speak at a Sarasota school. Atta may have been there to meet a second hijacker, Marwan Al-Shehhi.

Local authorities became aware of the incident when Longboat Key resident Milton Stein told them of a strange conversation he had with a Holiday Inn bartender, Darlene Sievers.

Stein said when he sat down at the bar, Sievers told him he was sitting in the same seat Atta had used. The bartender then went on to help other customers and Stein could not question her further about what she meant.

After getting the report, police asked Sievers to what she was referring. Sievers told police Atta came to the bar and ordered a rum and Coke. She said she remembered his face because of the sizeable tip he left her. Atta gave her a $20 bill for a $4 drink and let her keep the change, Sievers said.

Atta left the bar after another Middle Eastern man arrived, Sievers said. When the FBI released Atta’s picture Sept. 27, Sievers called the FBI and told authorities what she saw, she told Longboat Key police. Local police left the investigation at that, but a waiter at the Holiday Inn said Atta did not go far from the bar. The waiter, Frank Boyal, said Atta and his companion had the hotel’s $18.95 “Surf and Turf” buffet on Sept. 7. “They were just here. I remember the face.”
