Al-Qaeda Inc: Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Ammar al-Baluchi, Walid bin Attash, Ahmad al-Hawsawi, Ramzi bin al-Shibh. Almost two decades after Al Qaeda terrorists struck so savagely, none of the five 9/11 suspects have been tried at Guantanamo Bay. The 9/11 military trial has stalled over a number of issues, including the Al Qaeda suspects detention in the CIA secret prisons where they were subjected to the enhanced interrogation program that critics call torture. In November 2009, then-Attorney General Eric Holder said the five suspects would be tried in a New York City federal court. After fierce opposition, Holder reversed the decision and sent the case back to Guantanamo. That reversal is still upsetting for at least one 9/11 family member, who broke down in tears during our interview.
"If we got the 9/11 terror bosses into federal court right here in New York, this whole thing would be over in six months." Valerie Lucznikowska said. "See ... it's still emotional for all of us. it's still there. bring it to an end." Speaking of the self-described 9/11 architect Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who has spent more than a decade in a Guantanamo Bay prison cell, Lee Hanson added: "How much damage do you have to do? How many people do you have to kill? And how many heads do you have to cut off before people say you're gonna be brought to justice? The other suspects held at Guantanamo include Walid bin Attash, a 40-year-old Yemeni, who allegedly ran an al-Qaida training camp in Afghanistan where two of the 19 airplane hijackers were trained. And Ramzi bin al-Shibh, 46, a Yemeni, who is accused of helping a German cell of hijackers find flight schools and enter the U.S. The other two suspects are Ammar al-Baluchi, 41, a Kuwaiti and Mohammed's nephew, who is accused of sending about $120,000 to the hijackers to cover their expenses and flight training. And Mustafa Ahmad al-Hawsawi, 50, a Saudi, who allegedly sent money, western clothing, traveler's checks and credit cards to some of the hijackers.
Saudi Nationals in Phoenix AZ, Sarasota Fl and San Diego CA comprised a nationwide support network for the 9/11 hijack terrorists all puppet mastered by Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki. Terror preaching Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki had direct contact with 9/11 pilot Hani Hanjour in Phoenix, 9/11 muscle terrorists Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar in San Diego and directly linked to Al-Qaeda agent Ziyad Khaleel the roommate of Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat. FBI agents working the 9/11 case wanted to arrest Awlaki but couldn't close the case before he left the United States for good in 2002. An advocate for the families of victims and survivors of the 9/11 terrorist attacks said that Republican and Democrat administrations have taken the side of Saudi Arabia over American citizens impacted by the tragedy. "They've all handled it the same," Terry Strada, the national chairwoman of 9/11 Families and Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism, told Hill.TV co-host Krystal Ball. "They have sided with the Saudis more than they have sided with the 9/11 families,” the Washington, D.C. news site reported Monday. However, Strada pointed out that President Donald Trump had not “done anything, to my knowledge, that has hurt us.”

PHOENIX CONNECTION: Saudi Al-Qaeda terrorists Mohammed al-Qudhaeein, Hamdan al-Shalawi, Hani Hanjour and Nawaf al Hazmi were in Phoenix years before 9/11. Two years before 9/11 attacks Saudi Embassy in Washington paid the airfare for two Saudi nationals living undercover in the US as students to fly from Phoenix to Washington “in a dry run for the 9/11 attacks,” alleges the amended complaint filed on behalf of the families of some 1,400 victims who died in the terrorist attacks 18 years ago. The story cites FBI documents in the complaint alleging Saudi students Mohammed al-Qudhaeein and Hamdan al-Shalawi were in fact members of "the Kingdom's network of agents in the US", and participated in the conspiracy. During the flight in November 1999, the Saudis are reported to have attempted to get into the plane's cockpit to test security. The pilots made an emergency landing because of the incident, and the men were interrogated by the FBI, which eventually let them go. According to the Post story, the FBI confirmed the men's airline tickets were paid for by the Saudi embassy in Washington. Citing FBI documents, the complaint alleges that the Saudi students — Mohammed al-Qudhaeein and Hamdan al-Shalawi — were in fact members of “the Kingdom’s network of agents in the US,” and participated in the terrorist conspiracy. They had trained at al Qaeda camps in Afghanistan at the same time some of the hijackers were there. And while living in Arizona, they had regular contacts with a Saudi hijacker pilot, Hani Hanjour, and Ghassan al Sharbi a senior al Qaeda leader from Saudi now incarcerated at Gitmo. At least one tried to re-enter the US a month before the attacks as a possible muscle hijacker but was denied admission because he appeared on a terrorist watch list.
GUANTANAMO BAY NAVY BASE, CUBA A review board has decided that a Saudi prisoner who attended flight school in the U.S. and was trained to make explosives by al-Qaida should continue to be held without charge. The Periodic Review Board said in a decision released Friday that Ghassan Abdallah al-Sharbi, 41, should remain in custody at the U.S. base in Cuba because he remains a security threat. He spoke with candor at his June 23 board hearing, the decision said. Sharbi attended Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Arizona, and later went to a U.S. flight school, where he “associated with” two of the 9/11 hijackers, according to a profile released by the Pentagon before his review board hearing. Authorities said he later received training by al-Qaida in the manufacture of improvised explosive devices and was captured in a raid on a terrorist safe house in Faisalabad, Pakistan in 2002. One of Guantanamo Bay’s most dangerous and longest-held terror suspects is a Saudi national who knows how to fly planes and build sophisticated bombs, speaks fluent English and remains committed to killing Americans, say former U.S. officials who dealt with Ghassan al Sharbi face-to-face.Revelations last week that Al Sharbi’s flight training certificate, tucked into a Saudi Arabian Embassy envelope, had been found in 2003 among a trove of documents buried in Pakistan following his arrest there, raised fresh questions about the Kingdom’s possible involvement in the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. Although Al Sharbi, who trained with several of the 9/11 hijackers at an Arizona flight school, did not take part in the attacks, he is seen as one of the most lethal and committed terrorists held at the military base.
"This is a window of opportunity you are seldom presented with." Hanjour would end up with Alhamzi and Al-Midhar on American Airlines Flight 77, the jet that smashed into the Pentagon shortly after departing from Dulles airport outside Washington. A government report on the Sept. 11 attacks, which was prepared by a joint House-Senate committee and released today, says the FBI's informant knew that Alhamzi and Al-Midhar were going to flight school in Arizona but never told his FBI handler, Butler, who was in the dark about the significance of the two men. Nawaf alHazmi and a longtime friend, Khalid al-Mihdhar, left their homes in Saudi Arabia in 1995 to fight for Muslims in the Bosnian War. Hazmi later traveled to Afghanistan to fight with the Taliban against the Afghan Northern Alliance. He returned to Saudi Arabia in early 1999. Already long time affiliates of al-Qaeda with extensive fighting experience, Hazmi and Mihdhar were chosen by Osama bin Laden for an ambitious terrorist plot to pilot commercial airlines into designated targets in the United States. Hazmi and Mihdhar both obtained US tourist visas in April 1999.
VIDEO ABOVE: Sarasota Private Investigator Bill Warner Exposes Muslim Cleric Muneer Arafat Links to Terrorism. Former Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat is a member of the terrorist origination Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood. As per a FDLE Report of 12/03/2003, Special Agent Scott McAllister (Florida Department of Law Enforcement) along with Special Agent Tom Baugher (Federal Bureau of Investigation) and Detective James LaPlante (Sarasota City Police Department) interviewed a confidential informant, under control of the Detroit office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The source spoke of Muneer ARAFAT as the Imam of the local Sarasota mosque and that ARAFAT was a member of the Islamic (Muslim) Brotherhood in Kuwait, who follows a radical belief and teachings of ALBAZ, and wishes harm to the United States.
Al-Hijji brought a friend to the Sarasota Mosque soccer games who Hammoud claimed was Adnan El Shukrijumah, a man who was federally indicted in 2010 for his alleged role in a terrorist plot to attack New York City’s subway system. The plot, uncovered in September 2009, was directed by senior Al-Qaeda leadership in Pakistan, and El Shukrijumah is thought to have been part of the group’s external operations hierarchy. It was go time for Saudi al-Hijji Clan on Monday August 27th, 2001 as they fled their Prestancia Sarasota Fl home while the Al-Qaeda Hijackers are all booking flights starting on Saturday August 25th, 2001 for the September 11th, 2001 terror attack, there are no coincidences in terrorism! By Monday August 27th, 2001, the day the Saudi al-Hijji Clan fled Sarasota, ten of the 9/11 hijackers had booked and paid for flights departing on September 11th, 2001, did al-Hijji clan get a phone call or email telling them "IT'S TIME", there are no coincidences in terrorism! On August 25th, 2001 the time and date had been set for the September 11th, 2001 terror attack, it appears the al-Hijji clan in Sarasota had prior knowledge of 9/11 terror attack, there are no coincidences in terrorism!
The statement, however, severely contradicted some of the FBI’s own reports, one of which said, “further investigation of the (name deleted) family revealed many connections between the (name deleted) and individuals associated with the terror attacks on 9/11/01.″ It is interesting to note who the FBI director was while the Sarasota investigation was ongoing: Robert Mueller, current special counsel investigating whether or not President Donald Trump and/or his campaign colluded with the Russians in the 2016 election. It seems clear the FBI misled the public when the agency issued a statement saying there was no connection between the Sarasota family and individuals involved in the attacks.
There had to be something of substance, or why else would the investigation go on for more than a decade? And why did the FBI have such a large number of documents — 80,000 — to turn over upon a court’s request? That’s a lot of documents for no connection. So now comes the question: Did Mueller have any role in misleading the public about the Sarasota family’s link to anyone connected to the 9/11 attacks? In light of the ongoing Russia investigation involving the president of the United States, it is an extremely serious question. At a minimum, if Mueller didn’t know there was a Sarasota connection to 9/11, that doesn’t bode well for the job he was doing as FBI director. After all, this was 9/11. And he was the FBI director. How does the FBI director not know everything about the 9/11 investigation?
