FBI Report: 23 years ago today on October 12, 2000, Columbus Day, two Al-Qaeda suicide pilots of a small bomb-laden boat pulled alongside of the USS Cole at midship, offered friendly gestures to several crew members, and detonated their explosives. The blast ripped a 40-foot-wide hole near the waterline of the Cole, killing 17 U.S. sailors and injuring nearly 40 other crew members. The FBI quickly sent to Yemen more than 100 agents from the Counterterrorism Division. The extensive FBI investigation ultimately determined that members of the Al Qaeda terrorist network planned and carried out the bombing. The investigation also revealed that the USS Cole bombing followed an unsuccessful attempt on January 3, 2000, to bomb another U.S. Navy ship, the USS The Sullivans. In this earlier incident, the terrorist boat sank before the explosives could be detonated; however, the boat and the explosives were salvaged. The boat was then refitted, and the explosives were tested and reused in the USS Cole attack. Al-Qaeda Attacks USS Cole on Columbus Day Thursday Oct 12th, 2000 in Yemen as 9/11 hijack pilots Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah show up at Sahara Cafe in Sarasota Fl, there was a celebration party going on.

On the same day of the USS Cole attack in Yemen, Thursday, October 12th, 2000, al-Qaeda 9/11 pilots Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah are at the Sahara Cafe at 1121 S Tamiami Trail Sarasota Fl where they meet someone and celebrate the USS Cole attack. 23 years ago on Thursday Oct 12th, 2000 in Sarasota Fl Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi used SunTrust Visa-Debit card 4011-8008-4050-7778 to pay the tab of $23.43 for food and drinks at the SAHARA CAFE & MEDITERRANEAN FOODS SARASOTA FL, READ MORE BELOW!
Why were al-Qaeda operatives Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah in Sarasota on the day the USS Cole was attacked in Yemen by other al-Qaeda operatives on Thursday Oct 12th, 2000 (Columbus Day) at 11:18 am? These monsters Atta, al-Shehhi and Jarrah were in the Sahara Cafe on the Tamiami Trl in Sarasota on Thursday afternoon celebrating the murder of 17 U.S. Navy sailors and 37 severely injured U.S. Navy sailors on the USS Cole, knowing full well that they had bigger plans for America on 9/11/2001. Did Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah meet with Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat on Oct 12th, 2000 (Columbus Day) at the Sahara Cafe? Imam Muneer Arafat's roommate on Oct 12th, 2000 was the head cook at the Sahara Cafe. FBI Agent tells me 'There Ain't No Coincidences in Terrorism'. From FBI records: 10/12/2000 Thursday amount $23.43 DC Sahara Cafe & MA Sarasota FL Atta/Alshehhi Suntrust credit debit card number 4011-8008-4050-7778.
Columbus Day was originally observed every October 12th since 1892 in the United States. Christopher Columbus intended to chart a western sea route to China, India and the fabled gold and spice islands of Asia. Instead, on October 12, 1492, he landed in the Bahamas, becoming the first European to explore America. In 1892, President Benjamin Harrison issued a proclamation encouraging Americans to mark the 400th anniversary of Columbus’ voyage on October 12th every year. Anniversaries are important in al-Qaeda terrorist attacks. The USS Cole attack, by al-Qaeda terrorists, associated Oct 12th with the discovery of America by a sailor, thus the al-Qaeda attack on the US sailors on the USS Cole on Oct 12th, 2000. SAHARA CAFE & MEDITERRANEAN FOODS opened in October 1998 in Sarasota Fl under a Fictitious name filing, they became a Florida corporation in 2002.
On Thursday October 12th, 2000 (Columbus Day) Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah are at Sahara Cafe 1121 S Tamiami Trail, Sarasota Fl where they meet others, they use Sun-Trust Visa card 4011-8008-4050-7778 to pay the tab of $23.43 for their food and drinks, as seen above in FBI 9/11 hijackers timeline. Apparently the use of the Mohamed Atta - Marwan al-Shehhi credit card at the Sahara Cafe is a mistake and draws attention to the cafe. On Oct 12th, 2000 Khalid Suliman the roommate of al-Qaeda linked Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat is/was the main cook at the Sahara Cafe. "Sahara Cafe serving Sarasota fresh & delicious Mediterranean food since 1998, incorporated in 2002".
In Oct 2000 Imam Muneer Arafat was listed at a condo complex called Bella Villino 4130 Central Sarasota Parkway Sarasota Fl, so was Sahara Cafe cook Khalid Suliman. Possibly Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat and Saudi Abdulaziz al-Hijji met Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah on Thursday Oct 12th, 2000 at the Sahara Cafe. This is the only instance where Atta and al-Shehhi use their Suntrust credit card at Sahara Cafe in Sarasota Fl, this does not discount the use of cash for other meetings or other meetings paid for by Abdulaziz al-Hijji out of Prestancia, Sarasota Fl.
Thursday Oct 12th, 2000 (Columbus Day) the same day al-Qaeda
terrorists Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah show up at the Sahara Cafe
in Sarasota, the USS Cole is attacked by al-Qaeda suicide terrorists at
11:18 am EST in the port of Aden Yemen. Seventeen U.S. Navy sailors were killed and thirty-seven injured. The Sahara Cafe is open from 12 noon to 2:00 am daily, 9/11 pilots Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah would have been in the Sahara Cafe Sarasota Fl after the USS Cole was the target of a suicide bombing at 11:18 am EST on Oct 12th 2000. Thursday Oct 12th, 2000 is now
a day of celebration for al-Qaeda terrorists and many radical Muslims.
Most likely al-Qaeda terrorists Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah had
fore-knowledge of the USS Cole attack on Thursday Oct 12th, 2000
(Columbus Day). In Jan 2000 the CIA failed to put one of the 9/11 hijackers Khalid al-Mihdhar on a watch list, he had been filmed
at a meeting in Kuala Lumpur to plot the bombing of the USS Cole in Yemen on Oct 12th, 2000. 9/11 hijacker Khalid al-Mihdhar was Mohamed Atta's right hand man and 2nd in command for the 9/11 planes operation, they all knew about the planned USS Cole bombing before the October 12th, 2000 attack.
My article explains how Al-Qaeda operatives like Mohamed Atta used intelligence influenced by critical elements of the 9/11 hijack operation, so that various key decisions were directly determined by operational intelligence accumulated over a lengthy period. I will analyze how those involved in the operation, including both the operatives like Mohamed Atta and the leadership like, Osama bin-Laden and KSM that directed and coordinated it, craved high levels of certainty, secrecy and operational control. "Someone knows the secrets of Sarasota in regards to 9/11". Counterintelligence allowed for the creation of a security umbrella that shielded the operation from exposure throughout all its stages for well over 2 years. The secret nature of the 9/11 operation dictated the need for the Al-Qaeda hijackers to engage in behavior that exposed them to constant risk and secure in the knowledge that the operation had not been compromised, even showing drivers licenses to security guards at gate to al-Hijji house in Prestancia Fl (Sarasota), and that they maintained the crucial element of surprise until Tuesday morn September 11th, 2001. If a support network was available to the Al-Qaeda hijack terrorists before 9/11, why should we think it has now disbanded or been rolled up? The support networks may still be in place, like in San Diego and in Sarasota, capable of supporting al-Qaeda or other extremist groups that hate America --of which there are many.
VIDEO ABOVE: Straight out of Sarasota Fl, 9/11 hijack pilots Mohamed Atta, Ziad Jarrah and Marwan al-Shehhi spent more time living in the Venice - Sarasota Florida area (from July 5th 2000 to January 24th, 2001) than any of the other known locations like Norman Oklahoma, Lawrenceville Georgia, Dania Fl, Hollywood Fl, and Coral Springs Fl. While in the Sarasota Venice area Atta and al-Shehhi frequented the WalMart Super Center, Jiffy Lube, Venetian Cleaner, Burdines Sarasota Square Mall, SunTrust ATM's, Publix Venice, Exxon, Mobil Gas stations, Sahara Cafe US 41 Sarasota on Oct 12 2000, Coastal Mart Venice Fl, Subway subs and the al-Hijji house in Prestancia. On Thursday August 17, 2000 at 4:06 pm the Sarasota County Sheriff Dept queried Mohamed Atta's 1989 Pontiac Grand Prix license plate #D79DDV, a NCIC check, was this an ID check from the guard gate at Prestancia?
Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat was an al-Qaeda operative and facilitator. Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat who came to the ISSB in March of 2000, 23 years ago, was the former roommate of Al-Qaeda terrorist facilitator Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa in Manchester MO and East St Louis IL. Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat is a Palestinian who was born in Kuwait City had his pilot's license from Parks College of St Louis Univ in St Louis prior to coming to Sarasota. 'You don't live with an al-Qaeda agent like Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa prior to 9/11 unless you are al-Qaeda, Imam Muneer Arafat". On Thursday Oct 12th, 2000 the same day al-Qaeda terrorists Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi show up at the Sahara Cafe in Sarasota, the USS Cole is attacked by al-Qaeda suicide terrorists at 11:18 am EST in the port of Aden Yemen. Seventeen U.S. Navy sailors were killed and thirty-seven injured. The Sahara Cafe is open from 12 noon to 2:00 am daily, Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi would have been in the Sahara Cafe after the USS Cole was the target of a suicide bombing at 11:18 am EST on Oct 12th 2000 and now trending on the afternoon TV news outlets of CNN, Fox News, ABC News etc. etc.. Thursday Oct 12th, 2000 is now a day of celebration for al-Qaeda terrorists and many radical Muslims. 9/11 Al-Qaeda terror pilots Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi had fore-knowledge of the USS Cole attack on Thursday Oct 12th, 2000. In Jan 2000 the CIA failed to put one of the 9/11 hijackers Khalid al-Mihdhar on a watch list, he had been filmed at the Summit meeting in Kuala Lumpur to plot the bombing of the USS Cole in Yemen on Oct 12th, 2000 and the 9/11 terror attack. Khalid al-Mihdhar was 9/11 boss Mohamed Atta's second in command. Mohamed Atta knew about the upcoming Oct 12, 2000 USS Cole attack, in January 2000. FBI Agent tells me 'There Ain't No Coincidences in Terrorism'.
Al-Qaeda terrorist leader Adnan El-Shukrijumah could have been coming to 4224 Escondito Circle in Prestancia from at least 1995 as he was living in Miramar Fl at that time. Al-Qaeda terrorist leader Adnan El-Shukrijumah and Abdulaziz Al-Hijji both moved to South Florida in 1995. “In mid-August 2001, Abdulaziz al-Hijji aka "Azziz", purchased a new vehicle and renewed the registration on several other vehicles at the Sarasota County tag office near his home, so why did he ‘bug out’ just days later in August. One of the vehicles was a 1999 tan 4dr Jeep, Vehicle License VAS14W. On Aug 27th 2001 a moving truck appeared and moved the al-Hijji subjects out of the house. Left behind were the vehicles, recently registered in early August 2001 (the same month the moving truck showed up), and numerous personal belongings, including food, medicine, bills, baby clothing etc.. Abdulaziz Al-Hijji aka "Azziz", DOB 12/28/1973, as per a unpaid parking ticket in Manatee County Fl, was driving a 1999 tan Jeep with Fl Tag VAS14W and had Fl Drivers license number A420001734680 with a issue date of 09-12-1995, he got a duplicate Fl drivers license in 1997, 1998 and 2000, why?
