9/11 Support Network of Mohdar Abdullah, Osama 'Sam' Awadallah, and Omer Bakarbashat worked at Sam Mustafa's Star Mart Texaco with 9/11 Hijacker Nawaf al-Hazmi.




The Ar-Ribat Al-Islami mosque in La Mesa, California, is a modest building flanked by palm trees in a residential neighborhood. It looks more like a Presbyterian church than a mosque. 17 years ago, this tiny building became a point in the constellation of leads for the U.S. officials investigating the September 11, 2001, attacks. Starting in early 2000 and continuing for months, two ofthe September 11 hijackers attended services at Ribat. They received help learning English, searching for flight schools, and getting rides around the area from members of the mosque. And they met behind closed doors with the mosque's imam, a gifted and eloquent preacher by the name of Anwar al-Awlaki. In the U.S., Anwar Awlaki had repeated contact with terrorist networks, including al-Qaeda and the Egyptian Islamic Group, although the nature and details of these links are unclear. 
In the late 1990s, Anwar Awlaki was approached by an al-Qaeda facilitator known as Ziyad Khaleel, (Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat was his roommate) who performed simple tasks for the terror network, for example paying for a satellite phone to be used by Osama bin Laden. Khaleel and Awlaki were both connected to a Yemeni charity, founded by an associate of bin Laden. Awlaki served as its vice president for a time. All of this activity led the FBI to open an investigation in to Awlaki in June 1999, the details of which remain classified. What we do know is that the investigation was closed in March of 2000 -- mere days after Awlaki and his followers had met Nawaf Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar, two of the five al-Qaeda operatives who would crash American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon on September 11. Some of Awlaki's most fervent disciples would provide assistance to the newcomers. One was Mohdar Abdullah, a Yemeni college student fluent in both English and Arabic, who was also friends with Bayoumi. Mohdar Abdullah was a employee of Sam's Star Mart on Spring Street in La Mesa. Mohdar Abdullah first met Hazmi and Midhar in the late spring or early summer of 2000. He became friends with the hijackers, acting as both a translator and chauffer, driving them as far as Los Angeles. He helped them get state IDs and fill out applications to flight schools.The FBI would later suspect that Abdullah had specific advance knowledge of the attacks due to his unusual behavior in the weeks prior, but a case was never mounted.
 
The 9/11 Congressional Inquiry strongly implies that Osama Mustafa assisted the hijackers with the 9/11 plot. 9/11 hijacker Nawaf Alhazmi works at a gas station while living in San Diego where other suspected Islamist militants work. The Texaco gas station, Sam’s Star Mart, is owned by Osama “Sam” Mustafa. Mustafa was first investigated by the FBI in 1991 after he told a police officer that the US needed another Pan Am 103 attack and that he could be the one to carry out the attack. Information that I received from a former employee of Sam's Star Mart on Spring Street in La Mesa indicates that Osama Mustafa kept thousands of dollars in a safe in his office along with several handguns. Witnesses later claim Mustafa cheered when he was first told of the 9/11 attacks. 
Omar Bakarbashat, was a employee of Sam's Star Mart on Spring Street in La Mesa, was a young Saudi who lived in the same apartment building as Mohdar Abdullah. Omar Bakarbashat viewed Awlaki as "almost a god," according to an FBI agent. By his account, Hazmi and Mihdhar approached him after prayers one day at Ribat and asked for English lessons, which he provided. Osama Awadallah, a Jordanian immigrant, a employee of Sam's Star Mart on Spring Street in La Mesa. roomed with Bakarbashat, who was arrested in San Diego as a material witness and flown to New York. The FBI later said they believed he shared the Saudi's exalted view of Anwar Awlaki. A federal law enforcement source has said that Bakarbashat is suspected of helping provide financial aid to Nawaf al-Hamzi, a former resident of San Diego and Lemon Grove who authorities have identified as one of the five hijackers on the plane that crashed into the Pentagon on Sept. 11. 

When searched after September 11, 2001, Osama Awadallah's home was filled with photographs, videotapes, and news articles featuring Osama bin Laden, as well as flyers containing Osama bin Laden's fatwas. When police searched the car that a group of hijackers -- including Hazmi -- drove to Washington Dulles International Airport on September 11, 2001, they found Awadallah's phone number written on a scrap of paper. The car itself was registered to an address where Bakarbashat had moved in August 2001. Palestinian Muslim Osama Sam Mustafa and his Muslim employees at Sam's Texaco Star mart in La Mesa CA all cheered when the Towers came down on 9/11.
9/11 Support Network of Mohdar Abdullah, Osama 'Sam' Awadallah, and Omer Bakarbashat worked at Sam Mustafa's Star Mart Texaco with 9/11 Hijacker Nawaf al-Hazmi. 9/11 hijacker Nawaf al-Hazmi was hired by the manager at the station on the basis of a recommendation from someone attending Anwar Awlaki's mosque. Mohdar Abdullah worked at the Sam's Star Texaco station in La Mesa owned by terrorist Sam Mustafa. When interviewed by the FBI after 9/11, Mohdar Abdullah denied having advance knowledge of attacks. In May 2004, it was learned from reports about Mohdar Abdullah bragging to fellow inmates at a California prison in September- October 2003 that he had known Hazmi and Mihdhar were planning a terrorist attack. Mohdhar Abdullah was tasked by Omar Al-Bayoumi to provide al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar with whatever assistance they needed while in San Diego. Abdullah translated for them, helped them open bank accounts, and contacted flight schools for the hijackers.  
After the attacks, individuals from one of the San Diego mosques told the FBI that Mohdar Abdullah also participated in the closed door meetings with the hijackers and Anwar Aulaqi. In a proffer session with the FBI, Mohdar Abdullah admitted that Khalid Al-Mihdhar had told him that he was connected to a terrorist organization, and that he had heard Nawaf al-Hazmi express extremist views. Early on the morning of September 10, Mohdar Abdullah, Osama Awadallah, Omar Bakarbashat, and others behave suspiciously at Sam Mustafa's gas station. The witness will say that after the group meets, Awadallah tells the others, “[I]t is finally going to happen” and they celebrate with high fives. Omer Bakarbashat, believed to be of Yemen; Modhar Abdullah, also of Yemen; Osama Awadallah of Jordan; and Yazeed Al-Salmi of Saudi Arabia had been living in La Mesa until they were arrested as material witnesses. They were being held without charges until they testify before a federal grand jury in New York. Omar Bakarbashat is quietly deported to Yemen after spending two years in US prisons.
Omar Bakarbashat, a Yemeni citizen, was arrested shortly after 9/11 and held as a material witness. He knew and worked with 9/11 hijacker Nawaf al-Hazmi at a gas station. He was eventually charged with an immigration violation. He pled guilty to creating phony immigration documents and a Social Security card, and then served a six-month sentence. However, he chose to remain imprisoned so he could fight deportation. But after two years in prison, he gives up and agrees to be deported. According to his lawyer, he is interrogated and briefly jailed in Yemen, and then is let go. After that, he moves to Saudi Arabia. It has been claimed that one day before the 9/11 attacks, Bakarbashat and others appeared to be celebrating the upcoming attacks.
