911 Commission Interview: Born in Mecca, Osama Basnan worked for several years at a Saudi Arabian airline, In 1981, he went to the US to pursue further education, attending Housatonic Community College in Bridgeport, CT; Consegment (ph) College in Worcester, MA; Sacramento City College and California State University in Los Angeles. His studies included art, graphic design, and computer science. In the 1980s, Osama Basnan resided in the Falls Church/Alexandria VA area and established his own used car business, which consisted of buying cars at auction and shipping them to Saudi Arabia for re-sale at a handsome profit. He returned to Saudi Arabia after Saddam invaded Kuwait and remained there for the duration of the Gulf War. When Basnan returned to Virginia following the war, he married Majeda Dweikat, his third marriage. His second marriage was to a US citizen, with whom he had a son. When asked about his ties to the contents of a car found in 1992 by the Fairfax County Sheriff's office, Basnan claimed that the car was part of the inventory of his used car business and that he was not responsible for the materials it contained. He denies familiarity with any of the jihadist literature found in the car. In May 1992, the State Department provided the FBI with a box of documents recovered from an abandoned car. The documents were in Arabic, and one, a newsletter to supporters of the Eritrean Islamic Jihad (EIJ) Movement, provided updates on the EIJ’s council and was marked “confidential.” The box contained letters addressed to Bassnan that discussed plans to import used cars to the United States.
FBI documents suggest that Osama Basnan was in phone and e-mail contact with Ramzi Binalshibh in September 2000. Yemeni Binalshibh was one of the financiers and organizers of the 9/11 attacks. Binalshibh himself confirmed his relationship with Osama Basnan during interrogations by U.S. officials following his capture in Karachi, Pakistan on September 11, 2002. The support network that received 9/11 hijackers Hazmi and Mihdhar upon their arrival in the United States, and assisted them in settling in the United States and beginning their preparations for the September 11thAttacks, included Saudi officials Fahad al-Thumairy, Omar al Bayoumi, and Osama Basnan. Absent the critical financial, logistical, ideological and other support provided to them by Omar al Bayoumi, Fahad al Thumairy, Osama Basnan, Anwar Aulaqi, Mohdhar Abdullah, Osama Mustafa and others, the hijackers would have been incapable of successfully carrying out the single worst enemy attack on United States soil this country had seen in 60 years.
Before September 11 2001, the business owner, Osama Mustafa, was in contact with an individual who told the FBI after September 11 that he was al-Hazmi’s best friend and that the individual had contact with an FBI informant [Shaikh] who also had contacts with the hijackers. The FBI also learned that the business owner, Osama Mustafa, had been associating with other persons with possible ties to the hijackers, including Osama Basnan, and it received reports that the business owner, Osama Mustafa, cheered upon learning of the September 11 attacks. The FBI conducted several investigations of the business owner Osama Mustafa prior to September 11. The first was opened in August 1991 upon receipt of reports from the San Diego Police Department that, during a traffic stop, Osama Mustafa had stated that the United States needed another Pan Am 103 attack and that he could be the one to carry it out. The business owner Osama Mustafa also said that all Americans should be killed for what they did to Iraqis. During the investigation, the FBI developed information that the business owner was associated with members of the Palestinian Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a known terrorist organization, in San Diego and Chicago and headquartered in Ramallah West Bank where Mustafa has family. In 1994, San Diego police also received an anonymous call stating that the business owner Osama Mustafa was a PFLP member.
Osama Mustafa told a Tampa Tribune reporter in 2005 that his family lived in Ramallah a Palestinian city on the West Bank. US Marshals most wanted Osama Mahmud Mustafa a.k.a. “Sam Mustafa” DOB 02/10/1963. Osama Sam Mustafa is a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) a terrorist organization, PFLP headquarters are located in Ramallah in the West Bank. Ramallah is a Palestinian terrorist stronghold in the central West Bank located just 6 miles north of Jerusalem. The Martyr Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades are the violent military wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) in the occupied territories. The Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades adopted its name in 2001 in homage to Sa’adat’s immediate predecessor, Mustafa Zibri aka Abu Ali Mustafa, who in July 2000 was elected to replace the ailing George Habash but who was assassinated in his Ramallah office on August 27, 2001 by an Israeli aerial death squad firing missiles into his office from a helicopter. The Israeli army portrayed the dead man, Mustafa Zibri, leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and better known as Abu Ali Mustafa, as a dangerous terrorist and car-bomb maker whose death made Israel a safer place. Just days after the assassination of Abu Ali Mustafa, witnesses claim Texaco Gas station owner Osama Mustafa cheers when first told of the 9/11 attacks on the USA.
In 2000, 9/11 hijacker al-Hazmi briefly worked at a San Diego business, Sam's Star Mart Texaco used car sales. The manager of the business, told the FBI that he hired al-Hazmi after receiving a call from “mutual friends” at the Saranac Street Mosque. In January 2000, before al-Hazmi’s employment at the business, Sam's Star Mart Texaco used car sales, the FBI Los Angeles field office initiated a counter-terrorism investigation of the business manager after a person whom the FBI was surveilling entered the business manager’s car in a mosque parking lot. That person was [ ], the brother of a known Bin Laden operative [ ]. The business manager was under FBI investigation when he hired al-Hazmi. The FBI agent handling the business manager’s investigation interviewed him by phone. The business manager told the agent that he did not want to meet in person because it would be a strain to travel to Los Angeles. The business manager informed the agent that he had lived in San Diego for two and a half years and did not want to give his home address. The business manager said that he worked at the local business.
The agent concluded that the business manager did not pose a threat to national security, and the investigation was closed in December 2000. Moreover, as of August 2001, Iyad Kreiwesh and other employees at the Texaco station where al-Hazmi had worked suddenly were anticipating attention from law enforcement authorities in the near future. Finally, according to an uncorroborated witness account, early on the morning of September 10 2001, Mohdar Abdullah, Osama Awadallah, Omar Bakarbashat, and others behaved suspiciously at the gas station. According to the witness, after the group met, Osama Awadallah said "it is finally going to happen" as the others celebrated by giving each other high fives.
Osama Basan was a used car dealer in La Mesa CA and Alexandria VA. Osama Basnan befriended the two 9/11 hijackers, al-Mihdhar and al-Hazmi. After the terrorist attacks, Osama Basnan, who was known as a vocal Qaeda sympathizer, "celebrated the heroes of September 11" and talked about "what a wonderful, glorious day it had been," according to a law-enforcement official. The FBI… had been made aware of him on several occasions. In May 1992, the State Department provided the FBI with a box of documents recovered from an abandoned car from Basnan's used car lot. The documents were in Arabic, and one, a newsletter to supporters of the Eritrean Islamic Jihad (EIJ) Movement, provided updates on the EIJ’s council and was marked “confidential.” The box contained letters addressed to Osama Basnan that discussed plans to import used cars to the United States and export cars to the Middle East. The FBI opened a counter-terrorism inquiry on the EIJ, but, having failed to develop information that would predicate further investigation, closed the investigation in December 1992. In 1993, the FBI received reports that Osama Basnan had hosted a party for the “Blind Sheikh” [implicated in the 1993 WTC bombing] in Washington, D.C. in 1992. After September 11, the FBI developed information clearly indicating that Osama Basnan is an extremist and a Bin Laden supporter…The FBI also learned that the business owner of Sam's Star Mart Texaco used car sales Osama Mustafa had been associating with other persons with possible ties to the hijackers, including Osama Basnan.

Sen. Bob Graham wrote that the staff of the congressional inquiry concluded that two Saudis in the San Diego area, Omar al-Bayoumi and Osama Bassan, who gave significant financial support to two hijackers, were working for the Saudi government. But Graham said the commission's findings were based on an interview with Omar al-Bayoumi in Saudi Arabia with Saudi Arabian officials present. “He had no motivation to speak truthfully as to his role,'' he said. San Diego - La Messa CA, Osama Basnan & Osama Mustafa — Osama Basan the La Mesa-based Saudi Arabian who reportedly got thousands of dollars from Saudi Princess Haifa al Faisal prior to the 9/11 World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks owes the U.S. government some back taxes. According to county records, the Internal Revenue Service filed a tax lien against Osama Y. Basnan for $5638. Congressional investigators say they discovered that the princess, wife of Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the Saudi ambassador to the U.S., began sending monthly $2,000 checks to Basnan's wife, Majeda Dweikat, in January 1999. And the ambassador himself reportedly gave Osama Basnan $15,000, all supposedly because he needed assistance for his kids and ailing spouse, who underwent thyroid surgery. After 9/11, Basnan was linked to another San Diego-based Saudi national, Omar al-Bayoumi, who had befriended two of the men who wound up hijacking Flight 77 and flying it into the Pentagon.

In photo above, Fahad al-Thumairy (L) and Omar al-Bayoumi (R). At least one of the checks the Osama Basnan's got from the princess was signed over to Omar al-Bayoumi's wife, and the money ultimately made its way to the 9/11 hijackers. Omar Al-Bayoumi subsequently left the country and, after being arrested and released in London, disappeared back into Saudi Arabia. According to an FBI agent who investigates Osama Basnan after 9/11, Osama Basnan and Omar al-Bayoumi are close friends. For instance, phone call records will show that there are about 700 calls from various phone numbers between Osama Basnan and Omar al-Bayoumi in a one year period. The agent will add that even if one discounted some of the calls given that their wives are friends, the calls between the cell phones are most likely between Osama Basnan and al-Bayoumi. An FBI timeline compiled shortly after 9/11 will mention that shortly before June 23, 2000, a witness sees hijacker Hani Hanjour in the apartment of Omar al-Bayoumi.
Anonymous government sources later claim that Mohamed Atta visits fellow hijackers Nawaf al-Hazmi, Khalid al-Mihdhar, and Omar al-Bayoumi in San Diego CA. These same sources claim al-Bayoumi is identified after September 11 as an “advance man” for al-Qaeda. [Washington Times, 11/26/2002]. Other reports have suggested Mohamed Atta visited al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar in San Diego. Omar al-Bayoumi, then 42 years old, was in the United States as a business student, supported by a private contractor for the Saudi Civil Aviation Authority, where al-Bayoumi had worked for over 20 years. The object of considerable media speculation following 9/11, he lives now in Saudi Arabia, well aware of his notoriety. By February 4, 2000 Hazmi and Mihdhar had come to San Diego from Los Angeles, possibly driven by Mohdar Abdullah. Abdullah, a Yemeni university student in his early 20s, is fluent in both Arabic and English, and was perfectly suited to assist the hijackers in pursuing their mission.

I have verified in the past that email@example.com is an email account linked to Osama M. Mustafa DOB 2/10/1963. The emails appear to have been sent from an IP address of 220.127.116.11 which is in Amman Jordan, Mustafa had claimed in the emails he sent me that he is in Amman Jordan (he is in Ramallah about 45 miles away) and in his emails he taunts the FBI to find him.OSAMA MUSTAFA KNEW ABOUT 9/11 PLOT: Osama “Sam” Mustafa denied all, he lied, Osama “Sam” Mustafa was in on the 9/11 attacks.
