FOLLOW THE MONEY: Secret ICE Operation Green Quest Investigation in Sarasota of Terrorist Support Network and Omar Abdi Mohamed

EXPOSE OF 9/11 HIJACKERS SUPPORT NETWORK IN SAN DIEGO: Report from Catherine Hunt a former Special Agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation ("FBI"). In 2006, I left the FBI to move to Lakeland Florida to work as a consultant to private industry and defense contractors, providing investigative and intelligence training and other related advice. I was retained in this matter as a Consultant by the law firm of Kreindler & Kreindler LLP. I have reviewed many documents concerning the 9/11 attacks. Together with document review, I am conducting an investigation of the events that took place in Southern California regarding the 9/ 11 hijackers Nawaf al-Hazrni and Khalid al-Mihdhar in the year 2000. "Someone knows the secrets of Sarasota in regards to 9/11". The name "Ismail Mana" was raised by the 9/11 Commission during its October 2003 interview of al-Bayoumi regarding al-Bayoumi's support of Nawaf al-Haztni and Khalid al-Mihdhar. My investigation determined that Mr. Mana worked at the Los Angeles Consulate of Saudi Arabia located at 2045 Sawtelle Boulevard in Los Angeles and that Mr. Mana also lectured at the King Fahad Mosque. 

During my (Catherine Hunt) interview of Mr. Johar and his attorney, Mr. Johar also identified two other individuals as having contact with al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar: Mohdar Abdullah and an acquaintance of Mr. Johar's named Akram Alzamari. Mohdar Abdullah worked at Osama Sam Mustafa's Star Mart gas station with 9/11 hijacker Nawaf al-Hazmi. Other Gas Station Employees May Know of 9/11 Plot - Mohdar Abdullah may have learned of the 9/11 plot as early as the spring of 2000. Additionally, according to one witness, Abdullah, Osama Awadallah, Omar Bakarbashat, and other gas station employees will appear to show foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks one day before they take place. Catherine Hunt further states she located and met with Mr. Johar's acquaintance, Mr. Alzamari. He said that he had spoken to ''whoever investigates these things," including "the FBI" and other government officials. He said that he had "told the FBI everything .. .it's all in there .. .I'm sure you have read it." During our conversation, he described the nature of the relationship between the King Fahad Mosque, the Saudi Consulate, and the Ministry of Islamic Affairs. Mr. Alzamari stated that he viewed himself as a close associate and friend of al-Thumairy.

Mr. Alzamari refused to speak with me (Catherine Hunt) about his interactions with Mohamed Johar, and 9/11 hijackers al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar. My investigation has determined that, in addition to al-Thumairy, al-Bayoumi, and Smail Mana, there are at least six other individuals employed by the Saudi government who the FBI investigated in relation to the 9/ 11 attacks. All of those individuals worked with al-Thumairy and/or al-Bayoumi. The names of those persons are: Abdullah al-Jraithen, Khalid al-Sowailem, Musaed Ahmed al-Jarrah, Adel Mohamed al-Sadhan, Mutaeb Abdelaziz al-Sudairy and Omar Abdi Mohamed. Imam Omar Abdi Mohamed was a Somali Imam paid $1,700 a month by the Saudi government to promote Wahhabism at a Somali social center in San Diego CA. He set up a small charity supposedly to help famine victims in Somalia called the Western Somali Relief Agency, the charity received more than $326,000 from the Global Relief Foundation (GRF), a terrorist-financing entity linked to Al Qaeda. FBI agents discovered checks that showed Omar Abdi Mohamed quickly moved the cash he had received from Global Relief to a Hawala money transfer service that operated throughout the Middle East. He also received $5,000 from Al Haramain Islamic Foundation, a Saudi-supported charity. Arrest of Imam Omar Abdi Mohamed charged: December 19, 2003 Immigration violations by ICE, Released December 22, 2005, served 1 year 6 months Federal prison. Omar Abdi Mohamed was deported in 2006 by ICE.

FBI needs to stop hiding what happened in Sarasota before 9/11, Biden Signs Order to Release 9/11 Classified Documents. Friday Sept 3rd, 2021 President Joe Biden has signed an executive order directing the FBI to release long-awaited classified documents regarding Saudi Arabia’s connection to the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, a source close to the Biden administration told Newsmax on Friday. “The families of those murdered on 9-11 have waited far too long for these documents to be declassified by the federal government, and I salute President Biden for doing the right thing,” Senate Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement to The Post. Biden’s decision to move on the executive order this week comes after 9/11 victims’ families on Thursday asked an inspector general in the Department of Justice to investigate their claims. The only specific document President Biden ordered to be reviewed for public release “no later than September 11, 2021” is an April 4, 2016 “electronic communication from the subfile investigation,” of the FBI that’s also known as Operation Encore. That report is said to be a 16-page summary of Encore’s findings about possible Saudi government complicity in 9/11. Encore was a secret offshoot of PENTTBOM, the code name for the FBI of the Sept. 11, 2001 al Qaeda attacks, the largest criminal inquiry in the nation’s history."We'll See".

UPDATE April 28, 2022 and so it continues, A former University of Alabama student was sentenced to more than seven years behind bars Wednesday for hiding financing to al Qaeda. Alaa Mohd Abusaad was sentenced to 90 months in prison, or 7.5 years. Alaa Mohd Abusaad, 26, had pleaded guilty in 2019 to a charge of concealing terrorism financing after telling an undercover FBI employee how to send money to terrorist fighters. Abusaad also told the undercover fed that “money” for the terrorists “is always needed, You can’t have a war without weapons. You can’t prepare a soldier without equipment.” The former college student told the agent to use fake names and addresses when sending electronic transfers to avoid detection by police. Abusaad introduced the UCE to a financial facilitator who could route the UCE’s money to “brothers that work with aq” (meaning al-Qaeda). Abusaad was born in Chicago, she moved to Tuscaloosa when she was 10-years-old. She was a resident and student at the University of Alabama until she married and moved to Ohio in 2018. Abusaad was also ordered to spend 10 years on supervised release following the prison term, federal prosecutors said.

There was Group of Imam's in USA linked to Al-Qaeda operatives prior to 9/11 that were paid by Saudi Arabia. Imam's in the USA are paid about $1,700 per month by The Ministry of Islamic Affairs in Saudi Arabia to spread "Wahhabism,". The collision of Saudi missionary work and suspicions of terrorist financing in southern California illustrates the perils and provocations of a multibillion-dollar effort by Saudi Arabia to spread its religion around the world. The King Fahd Mosque in Culver City, Calif., was built with $8 million in private donations from the king and his son, Crown Prince Abdullah ibn Abdulaziz. U.S. investigators continue to look into the tangled money trails leading from Saudi Arabia to its embassy in Washington and into dozens of American cities.

According to court documents filed in the case against him, starting in December 1998 and continuing until May 2001 Imam Omar Abdi Mohamed wrote 65 checks—some as small as $370; others as large as $60,000—to the Dahabshiil Hawala. The total amount, some $370,000, is roughly the same as what the 9/11 Commission estimated as the cost of the 9/11 terrorist plot. The indictment against Imam Omar Abdi Mohamed (ICE case), trace a circuitous route that would take hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Chicago office of the Al Qaeda-linked charity Global Relief on to San Diego and Omar Abdi Mohamed’s Western Somali Relief Agency, then through the money transfer service Dahabshiil Hawala to Karachi, Pakistan, where a waiting Khalid Sheikh Mohammed sent it to his nephew in Dubai, who put it into the pockets of the 19 hijackers who would travel to the United States. 

Omar Abdi Mohamed was receiving and passing on hundreds of thousands of dollars from another charity, Global Relief Foundation, known to support Al Qaeda, but that the money itself was also used to fund the 9/11 attack. The Holy Land Foundation along with Global Relief Foundation were based in Richardson, Texas. US intelligence (ICE) had been investigating the US-based Global Relief Foundation (GRF) and Holy Land Foundation long before 9/11/2001 for links to support of al-Qaeda.

Saudi government documents seized by the FBI in 2004 in a raid on the home of Omar Abdi Mohamed show that he was illegally working for Saudi Arabia in San Diego from 1995 to 2004 and was a "propagator" for Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Islamic Affairs in San Diego under the direct control of al-Sowailem and al-Thumairy. The Saudi government documents as well as documents filed by the U.S. Government in the criminal and immigration cases against Omar Abdi Mohamed show that, for the period from 1998 to 2001, Mohamed was found to have been involved in money laundering for charities closely associated with al Qaeda. U.S. Government documents state that Imam Omar Abdi Mohamed was "specifically tasked by the Saudi Arabian government in intelligence gathering mission in his employment as a propagator for that government." Imam Omar Abdi Mohamed was a subject of investigations by the FBI and the 9/11 Commission. Court documents in Mohamed's immigration case state that the government decided not to pursue further prosecutions of Omar Abdi Mohamed "for diplomatic reasons," presumably based on his work for Saudi Arabia. The majority of documents held by the FBI and the 9/11 Commission regarding Omar Abdi Mohamed remain classified. INDICTMENT by USA Counts filed against Omar Abdi Mohamed, title 18 Violations. CRIMINAL DOCKET FOR CASE #: 3:03-cr-03433-JAH-1. JUDGMENT and Commitment issued to U.S. Marshal for Omar Abdi Mohamed by Judge John A. Houston (bar).

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) Had Jamal Khashoggi Killed to Keep Quiet 9/11 Secrets. NY attorney James Kreindler claims WaPo columnist Jamal Khashoggi murdered by MBS because he knew Saudi Royal Family backed 9/11 attack. MANHATTAN (CN) — March 4, 2020 A little less than a year before his murder in Istanbul, Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi spoke to investigator Catherine Hunt working for the 9/11 families suing Saudi Arabia and sent a text message to senior officials for the kingdom that day. “One of the witnesses related to me a very specific threat,” Kreindler and Kreindler attorney Andrew Maloney said in open court. Khashoggi met with investigator Catherine Hunt, a former FBI agent now working with the families, on Oct 26, 2017, and then texted senior Saudi officials that same day, Maloney said. “Mr. Khashoggi had previously been a government official for Saudi Arabia,” Maloney noted. “In fact, I think he worked for Prince Turki, who was former head of Saudi intelligence. Mr. Khashoggi knew Osama bin Laden, knew of other supporters of Al-Qaeda. He had valuable information.” The families believe that one of the officials with whom Khashoggi had been in contact was then-Saudi Ambassador Khalid bin Salman, who tweeted about his contact with Khashoggi shortly after the journalist’s death. Stopping short of alleging any direct tie between Khashoggi’s killing and his meeting with the investigator Catherine Hunt, Maloney claimed that other possible witnesses cited the journalist’s demise as an example of what happens to those who speak out against the kingdom.

ISLAMIC CHARITIES FUNDING AL-QAEDA & OPERATIVES IN USA: “Procurement Agent” for bin Laden, Ziyad Khaleel (a.k.a. Ziyad Sadaqa). In November 1996, the FBI monitors the progress of bin Laden buying a new satellite phone and tracks the purchase to Ziyad Khaleel, a US citizen and radical militant living in Missouri with Imam Muneer Arafat (later in Sarasota Fl). Newsweek will later say that this puts the Sudan-based charity Islamic American Relief Agency (IARA) “on the FBI’s radar screen” because Ziyad Khaleel is one of IARA’s eight regional US directors. Furthermore, Ziyad Khaleel (his roommate is Imam Muneer Arafat) is working for the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), a Hamas-linked organization cofounded by Mousa Abu Marzook. US intelligence will later reveal that in the late 1990s, IARA is regularly funding al-Qaeda. For instance, it has evidence of IARA giving hundreds of thousands of dollars to bin Laden in 1999. December 1999 Police in Jordan detain Ziyad Khaleel, who the FBI calls a Florida-based “procurement agent” for Osama bin Laden. The FBI says Khaleel’s role is to “procure computers, satellite telephones, and covert surveillance equipment” for al-Qaeda leaders, his roommate was Imam Muneer Arafat who moved to Sarasota Fl in early 2000. Ziyad Khaleel and Muneer Arafat were fundraisers for Islamic African Relief Agency and the Holy Land Foundation both designated terrorist supporters of Hamas and Al-Qaeda. UPDATE August 11th, 2021ABC Action News Tampa I-Team Investigator Adam Walser and Photojournalist Matt McGlashen appear to have some interest in my involvement in a 2002 Sarasota Fl investigation into a terrorist support network that included Imam Muneer Arafat, "We'll see".


VIDEO ABC7 NEWS SUNCOAST WWSB: Six years ago, Sarasota Private Investigator Bill Warner Exposes Muslim Cleric Muneer Arafat Links to Terrorism. Sarasota Mosque Imam Muneer Arafat came to Sarasota in March of 2000 his prior roommate in St Louis was al-Qaeda procurement agent Ziyad Sadaqua aka Ziyad Khaleel who purchased a satellite phone in the USA and had it shipped to Africa so that it could be used by Osama bin-Laden in the 1998 US Embassy Bombings in Africa. In June of 2000 Mohamed Atta and his 9/11 hijack pals followed Muneer Arafat to Sarasota FL, while Ziyad Sadaqua went to Orlando Fl small world, eh.

9/11 GLORIFIED ON SARASOTA MOROCCAN NATIONAL'S 2003 CALENDAR RETRIEVED FROM TRASH. "S.WAT" (SWT) IS AN ARABIC ABBREVIATION MEANING GLORY TO HIS NAME, PRAISE ALLAH; S.WAT is a shortened version of "subhanahu wa ta'ala" which in Arabic means Glory to His name Allah. S.WAT is used exclusively for God. The 9/11 Calendar (and phone records) were obtained from trash put out by the Moroccan National living in Sarasota Fl who had been under Federal investigation. FBI Sarasota has the original calendar. Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat knew this guy, they met several times a the same house in South Sarasota. The Moroccan National living in Sarasota Fl has disappeared, possibly deported. Odd, but this dude from Casablanca Morocco living in Sarasota had also drawn attention to the date March 11th in 2003, circled in red, see calendar above. One year later on March 11th 2004, 193 people are killed and nearly 2,000 are injured when 10 bombs explode on four trains in three Madrid-area train stations during a busy day. March 3rd and March 7th in 2003 are also circled in red, possible alternate days for the March 11th, 2004 Madrid Bombing, did this dude have prior knowledge? The Moroccan National living in Sarasota made numerous international calls to several cities in Morocco like Casablanca and Tetouan (hot bed for terrorism), then Switzerland, Italy and France EVERY MONTH, he appeared to be unemployed. Calls were made from Sarasota phone of the Moroccan National to 4 land lines in the Moroccan city of Tetouan, "Where Boys Grow Up to Be Jihadis" according to a NY Times article. Numerous reports indicate many Tetouan youths went to Spain to seek their fortunes, but they became famous as key suspects in the bombings of four commuter trains in Madrid that killed 191 people on March 11, 2004. The Moroccan dude in Sarasota had been calling Tetouan in 2003 the exact place where the Madrid Train bombers of 2004 had been living. In June 2008, for example, 29 individuals from the “Tetouan cell” were convicted of belonging to a terrorist group and of recruiting for Iraq. NBC NEWS WROTE FEB 20 2007, about two dozen men from Tetouan and nearby towns in the Rif Mountains have traveled to Iraq in the past 18 months to volunteer as fighters or suicide bombers, according to local residents and officials. Moroccan authorities said the men were recruited by international terrorist networks affiliated with al-Qaeda that have deepened their roots in North Africa since the invasion of Iraq.

UPDATE SEPT 9th, 2021: ABC ACTION NEWS 9/11 SUPPORT NETWORK IN SARASOTA: Click image above for ABC News video and print story. $4,000 phone bills fished from the trash/ Sarasota private investigator Bill Warner started his own investigation in 2002. “They were here, in my neighborhood. So I had to look at it, kept looking at it,” Bill Warner said, he partnered with police, sheriff’s deputies and was eventually paid by ICE for providing surveillance photos and phone bills he collected from the garbage cans of people of interest. Bill Warner said some of the cell phone bills he collected were 35-to-40 pages long, with calls made to phone numbers located all over the world. At that time, cell phone and long-distance companies charged by the minute for calls. “The bills you could see they were $1,200, $1500, $2,000, sometimes even $4,000 a month,” Bill Warner said. ”These are guys living in duplexes, driving old cars, who don’t have a job, see more CLICK HERE.

Most of the Madrid Train bombers were from Casablanca and Tetouan Morocco and directly linked to Al-Qaeda, and at least two of them linked to 9/11 attack in USA, small world, eh? Madrid Train Bombers: suspected mastermind Rabei Osman Sayed Ahmed or “Mohamed the Egyptian” is from Italy where he is in jail for belonging to a terrorist group. Moroccan national Jamal Zougam was convicted of terrorist murder, Said Rehou, 27, born in Casablanca, Morocco, was indicted along with Mustapha Maymouni, Abdelaziz Mouratik and also Amer Azizi, a Moroccan who is wanted by authorities in connection with the September 11 attacks and the Madreid train bombings. The indictment also listed as a suspect in the cell the Moroccan native Driss Chebli, 33, who is already on trial in the al Qaeda case in Madrid, where he is charged with helping to plan the September 11 attacks. Moroccans Amer Azizi and Driss Chebli were linked to planning the 9/11 attacks. On January 4, 2001, Mohamed Atta left the United States from Miami International Airport for Madrid, Spain to meet with Ramzi Binalshibh. Six days later, on January 10, 2001, Mohamed Atta re-entered the United States at Miami Airport from Madrid. Mohamed Atta made two trips to Madrid, paid for with al Qaeda funds. The Atta - Binalshibh meeting was held at a hotel in the Catalan town of Reus Spain, Moroccans Amer Azizi and Driss Chebli were also there. ''We know Atta was here on two occasions,'' Juan Cotino, director general of Spain's National Police Corps, said in an interview in Madrid. When Mohamed Atta returned to Florida on Jan 10th, 2001, Marwan al-Shehhi left for Morocco, traveling to Casablanca Morocco in mid-January 2001, same place all the terrorists linked to the Madrid bombing lived. As far back as 2001 Spanish telephone intercepts showed Moroccan Jamal Zougam in contact with the accused leader of the Spain al-Qaeda cell, Imad Eddin Barakat Yarkas, who was charged with assisting the hijackers in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in New York and Washington, around and around it goes.

Investigator Catherine Hunt a former FBI agent takes on Saudi Prince MBS, the 'House of Saud' Royals and Al-Qaeda operatives linked to 911 support network. Former LA-based FBI agent Catherine Hunt, is now working with the 9/11 families and the Kreindler and Kreindler Law firm that has filed a Complaint on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia implicating them in assisting the 9/11 hijackers in the USA prior to September 11, 2001.

2018 Judge Daniels Order

Families’ Letter Asking the Biden Administration to Hold Saudi Arabia Accountable

Over 2,000 of the 9/11 community members signed on to a letter urging President Biden and Attorney General Garland to release the April 2016 FBI Operation Encore Final Report, all other DOJ-held 9/11-related material, and to allow our attorneys to work directly with the DOJ. It is time for this new administration to finally be a Department of Justice that works for the American people, rather than against us.

ICE 2002 - 2003 Operation Green Quest Investigation of Terrorist Support Network in Sarasota Fl. Wealthy Saudi Royals connected Essam Abbas Ghazzawi and his son-in-law Abdulaziz al-Hijji, who lived in Ghazzawi's Prestanci home in Sarasota, had been on the FBI terrorist watch list and a U.S. agency (ICE) involved in tracking terrorist funds and terrorist funding was interested in both Essam Abbas Ghazzawi and his son-in-law Abdulaziz al-Hijji way before the 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) enforces federal laws governing international money laundering and had Essam Abbas Ghazzawi and his son-in-law Abdulaziz al-Hijji under investigation. Green Quest investigators from the Department of Homeland Security (ICE) charge that the FBI deliberately sabotaged their investigations. Michael Chertoff was apparently an architect of this, as well.

In October 2001, Michael Chertoff was appointed head of Operation Green Quest, a multi-agency initiative to target sources of funding for terrorist organizations, according to a U.S. Customs Service (later ICE) press release. Chertoff told the Associated Press on Oct. 25, 2001 that, ‘The lifeblood of terrorism is money, and if we cut the money we cut the blood supply.’ Chertoff served in the capacity of Assistant Attorney General of the criminal division at the Department of Justice from 2001 to 2003
“ ‘They [The FBI] won’t share anything with us,’ said a Homeland Security official. ‘Then they go to the White House and they accuse us of not sharing . . . If they can’t take it over, they want to kill it.’ If nothing else, the battle over Green Quest illustrates the bureaucratic tensions that still plague the war on terror. The creation of the Homeland Security Department was supposed to put an end to such turf fights. The new department took over a diverse assortment of federal agencies that had various responsibilities for combating terrorism, including the Customs Service, the Immigration and Naturalization Service and the U.S. Border Patrol.”

Tampa fugitive Osama Sam Mustafa described in secret FBI 9/11 Operation Encore report captured in Amman Jordan, he had contacted Sarasota private investigator Bill Warner prior to his arrest. A fugitive and subject of Operation Encore, the FBI’s once-secret probe of suspected Saudi involvement in 9/11, Mustafa was captured without fanfare in Jordan and returned to the U.S. to start serving an unrelated 20-year sentence for fraud. Osama “Sam” Mustafa, 57, is identified in the 9/11 Commission report as the owner of Sam’s Star Mart Texaco gas station in La Mesa, CA where Saudi suicide hijacker Nawaf al-Hazmi and several subjects of interest in the FBI’s investigation worked in the fall of 2000.

On September 24th, 2012 FBI Agents in New York City considered potential charges for Osama ‘Sam’ Mustafa for providing ‘Material Support’ to the 9/11 hijackers while in San Diego CA. Osama Sam Mustafa and Star Mart station manager Iyad Kreiwesh “have both been the subject of FBI counterterrorism investigations,” the 9/11 report says. Sam Mustafa moved to Tampa from San Diego in late 2002 to be among like minded individuals, he was one of the targets of the ICE 2002 - 2003 Operation Green Quest investigation into a terrorist support network in Sarasota Fl

FLORIDA BULLDOG writes: Sarasota private investigator Bill Warner said he was contacted by Mustafa via email multiple times in 2016 and 2017 while Mustafa was a fugitive to complain (and threaten) about stories Bill Warner posted about him on Bill Warner’s website. “I told you a million times I had zero knowledge of 9-11 nor did I have any contact with these guys at all except for the time I told this guy, you idiots call Nawaf [al-Hazmi] to run my wife’s car through the car wash,” Mustafa wrote, according to a copy of the email reproduced on the website. Osama Sam Mustafa is currently incarcerated at Petersburg Medium FCI Hopewell VA. Sam Mustafa is scheduled for release from federal prison in 2036, he will be 74 years old, too bad dirtball.

On Feb 26, 2003 I attended a meeting in Tampa FL at ICE/US Customs Service headquarters by Tampa Int Airport concerning an investigation into "trade based" terrorist funding originating out of Sarasota and Tampa Fl sending cars to Iraq for re-sale. Led by the U.S. Customs Service (ICE), and included agents and analysts from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Secret Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Federal prosecutors from the U.S. Justice Department's Criminal Division also formed an integral part of Operation Green Quest. The director of Operation Green Quest was a senior special agent from U.S. Customs and the deputy director is a senior special agent from the IRS. Sarasota FBI Agent Thomas Baugher was at first just an observer but the FBI took over the case in 2003 when it positively linked to terrorism. Sarasota FBI Agent Thomas Baugher famously told me on several occasions at the Sarasota Police Dept, "there ain't no coincidences in terrorism".

ICE along with Sarasota Police Intel unit and Sarasota County Sheriff Dept Intel unit and myself were the nexus of a 2002 "trade based" money laundering investigation in Sarasota Fl that was eventually taken over by FBI agent Thomas Baugher when it linked to support of terrorism in June 2003. Same time frame as the so-called 2002 FBI Secret Sarasota Investigation of Abdulazziz al-Hijji’s clan in Prestancia Sarasota Fl and their links to 9/11 terrorist pilots. Ain't no coincidences in terrorism as FBI agent Thomas Baugher told me on several occasions in 2002 and 2003. I was there and involved in undercover work obtaining nexus connections.

October 26, 2001 Feds Launch 'Operation Green Quest' The government is assembling a team of financial sleuths to cut off terrorists from their lifeblood - money. Under Operation Green Quest, law enforcement people with financial expertise will investigate how terrorists move their money and where, the Bush administration announced in Oct 2001. The government would use the findings to freeze financial assets, seize money, impose fines and launch legal proceedings, including criminal prosecutions. Using undercover operations, electronic surveillance, cell phone records and other techniques, the special investigative team will closely examine underground financial systems, illicit charities and corrupt financial institutions. It also will target other funding mechanisms for terrorists, including counterfeiting, credit card fraud, cash smuggling, trade based (used cars) money laundering and drug trafficking. "The lifeblood of terrorism is money, and if we cut the money we cut the blood supply," said assistant attorney general Michael Chertoff, the head of the Justice Department's criminal division.

Operation Green Quest disbanded June 2003: As a result of conflicts between the FBI and ICE the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement the successor agency to Customs. In May 2003 the Attorney General and the Secretary of Homeland Security signed an agreement concerning terrorist financing investigations. In it, DHS acknowledged that the Department of Justice, through the FBI, was the lead agency in the fight against terrorist financing, and that any terrorist financing investigations would have to be conducted under the auspices of the FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Force. DHS also agreed to disband Operation Green Quest by June of 2003 (Sarasota ICE investigation shut down), and not to start any investigations into terrorism or terrorist financing without the permission of the FBI. 

Dec. 16, 2011 — -- More than two dozen U.S. car dealerships were allegedly involved in an international half-billion-dollar money laundering scheme for Lebanon-based Hezbollah, a group considered a terrorist organization by the U.S. government, federal officials said. Federal agents served restraining orders and grilled employees at as many as 30 used car dealerships around the country, as part of a civil case that also named a Lebanese bank and two exchange houses as part of the plot. According to a 62-page complaint filed in Manhattan federal court, the scheme involved the purchases of used cars in the U.S. for shipment and sale abroad with funds provided by the banks, currency exchanges and associates of the Lebanon-based terrorist group.The restraining orders are intended to seize the assets of all of the used car dealerships named in the federal complaint, according to the Drug Enforcement Agency."We're looking to shut down this trade-based money laundering scheme," DEA agent Derek Maltz told ABC News.
Osama Sam Mustafa owned used car lots in San Diego and in Tampa Fl.

Jihad Preaching Imam Muneer Arafat Had Pilot's License From Parks college in St Louis Before Coming to the Sarasota Mosque in March 2000, and just prior to 9/11 Kamakazi Terror Pilots Mohamed Atta, Marwan Al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah arrival in July 2000 in Venice Fl and then Laurel Ave W Nokomis Fl until Jan 2001. Suiciders Mohamed Atta, Marwan Al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah all took pilot training courses in Venice and then Sarasota Fl.
The flying Imam Muneer Arafat was a 4 year Grad of Parks College of St. Louis Univ with a BS in Aero Space ENG, Sept 1986 to April 1990. Parks College of St Louis Univ is a flight school. In Muneer Karem Arafat's current 'bogus' online resume, (Muneer K looking for work), he claims that while he was the Imam at the Sarasota Mosque and the Boca Raton Mosque in Fl that he worked there as a "financial advisor", LOL. Imam Muneer Arafat was a well know jihad preacher in the East St Louis area prior to coming to Sarasota in 2000 after purchasing a 2000 blue Isuzu Trooper SUV. No one buys a new car (in 2000) to drive to and live in Brooklyn NY for a number of years, a car in NYC is a liability. Muneer Arafat purchased a Isuzu Tooper SUV in Jan 2000 in East St Louis IL to drive to Sarasota Fl and for him to use and get around on a daily basis, a vehicle is a necessity in Florida. The flying Imam Muneer Arafat is a large man at 5'11 and 270 lbs, he was known as the '2 Whopper Imam' for his love of Burger King fast food in the St Louis area.

In St. Louis, 1996 to 2000, Muneer Arafat became a well-known lecturer at different Masjids and built up quite a following. Muneer Arafat gave lectures at local mosques that almost exclusively focused on Jihad week in and week out and this got him into trouble with Sheikh Muhammad Nur of the Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis who at one point banned Muneer Arafat from giving lectures at the Gateway Masjid. Jihad preaching Imam Muneer Arafat banned in St Louis but welcomed in Sarasota in March 2000, what the hell? 

In early 1999 Muneer Arafat and Ziyad Khaleel lived in Manchester, Missouri, and both were linked to Columbia College in St. Louis. Upon moving to Columbia, Missouri, he was known as Ziyad Khaleel, but began using the surname Sadaqa as early as 1996. That year he was a fundraiser and one of eight regional directors of the Islamic African Relief Agency (IARA), which the government later determined was a front for al-Qaeda and Hamas.

IMAM MUNEER ARAFAT WENT TO FLIGHT SCHOOL IN ST LOUIS, HE GOT HIS PILOT'S LICENSE IN 1990: The flying Imam Muneer Arafat lists on his resume, Parks College of St. Louis Univ BS in Aero Space ENG Sept 1986 to April/1990. It appears that Muneer K. Arafat came into the US on a student visa around 1986. At Federal trial of Sami al-Arian in 1995 in Tampa Muneer K. Arafat said he meet terrorist Sami al-Arian at a conference of the Islamic Committee for Palestine in St. Louis in 1988. Muneer Arafat rejected Sami Al-Arian's invitation to join Palestinian Islamic Jihad as he was already a member of a another terrorist group, both men are Palestinians. Under cross-examination by Al-Arian’s attorney, William Moffitt, Arafat admitting lying in the past on resumes, job applications and a voter registration form. Arafat also testified that the government has paid him a total of $35,000 since 2003 to cooperate with them (wear a wire).

Muneer Arafat the flying Imam: At Parks College of Engineering Aviation and Technology trains students to become skilled pilots as well as strong industry leaders. Flight School in aviation, planes, hours, certification. The Center for Aviation Science is housed at the St. Louis Downtown Airport, located at 4300 Vector Drive in Cahokia, Illinois. Students enrolled in SLU’s Parks College aviation program are able to fly within weeks of their freshman year, and continuously gather more and more certification throughout each year of the flight science degree program.

April 3rd 2002 FBI report indicates that at least two people linked to the al-Hijji house in Prestancia Sarasota Fl were taking flight lessons at Huffman Aviation with the 9/11 hijackers in the year 2000. Individuals tied to Huffman Flight School and 9/11 Hijackers by FBI linked to 4224 Escondito Circle Sarasota as family members appear to be Abdulaziz al-Hijji and Adel Ghazzawi son of Esam Ghazzawi. In the year 2000, Sarasota Saudi’s Abdulaziz al-Hijji then age 27 and his brother in law Adel Ghazzawi then age 30, were contemporaries of 9/11 Hijack Pilots Ziad Jarrah then age 25, Marwan Al-Shehhi then age 22, and Monamed Atta then age 32 who all appear to have taken Flight Training in Venice Fl at Hoffman Aviation at the same time, small world, eh? It appears the Adel Ghazzawi had been staying at 4224 Escondito Circle Sarasota, he also was linked to a address in nearby Longboat Key Fl. Interestingly the flying Imam Muneer Arafat at the Sarasota Mosque who has ties to al-Qaeda members before coming to Sarasota Fl in 2000 also had taken advanced flight lessons, small world, eh?

The only Sarasota FBI terrorism investigation I am aware of that took place in from Feb 2002 through all of 2003 is the one run by FBI agent Thomas Baugher and involved Abdulaziz and Anoud al-Hijji who just happened to have attended the same Sarasota Mosque where the Imam was Muneer Arafat from 2000 to 2003 and it became known that Arafat later worked for the FBI as an undercover CI wearing a wire in December 2002 through all of 2003. It is no coincidence that Sarasota Saudi Abdulaziz al-Hijji, convicted and jailed terrorist Wissam Hammoud and Al-Qaeda terrorist Adnan el-Shukrijumah played soccer at the local Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton during 2000 and into 2001. It is no coincidence that Abdulaziz al-Hijji was visited multiple times from the summer of 2000 and into 2001 by Mohamed Atta, Waleed al-Shehri and other 9/11 Al-Qaeda hijack pals at 4224 Escondito Circle in Sarasota Fl. Sarasota Fl was Terror Central from the summer of 2000 and into 2001.

Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat and his roommate Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa were fundraisers for the terrorist organization Holy Land Foundation for Relief which funded Hamas, while in Columbia MO and just prior for Arafat showing up in Sarasota Fl. Holy Land Foundation boss Ghassan Elashi got 65 years in Federal Prison. Ghassan Elashi is currently located at: McCreary USP a high security Federal prison in Pine Knot KY with a scheduled release date of 06/24/2068, just 47 more years to go, LOL. If Muneer Arafat had not flipped for the FBI in December 2002 he would have been right there in prison with Elashi.

Saudi's who assisted 9/11 hijackers in San Diego are Fahad al-Thumairy, Omar al-Bayoumi, Musaed al-Jarrah and Omar Abdi Mohamed. FBI documents show that a foreign ministry official within the Saudi Embassy, Mussaed Ahmed al-Jarrah, who had duties overseeing the activities of the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, had repeated contacts with two figures at the heart of the case and was even suspected of directing them to assist the hijackers. One was Fahad al-Thumairy, a Saudi Islamic Affairs official and radical cleric who served as the imam of the King Fahd Mosque in Los Angeles and met with the two hijackers there. FBI document contains information that al-Bayoumi made thirty calls to (202) 342-3700 from January 19 to March 24, 2000. Saudi government letterhead lists that phone number as belonging to the Ministry of Islamic Affairs office at the Saudi Embassy in Washington, D.C., headed by Khalid al-Sowailem. The FBI document also shows al-Bayoumi called a second number, (202) 494-2777, used by al-Sowailem. 

Omar al-Bayoumi, a suspected Saudi intelligence agent who directly helped the hijackers, finding them an apartment, lending them money and setting them up with bank accounts, after they flew into Los Angeles airport on Jan. 15, 2000. Omar al-Bayoumi also set up one of the hijackers, Nawaf al-Hazmi, with a job at Osama Sam Mustafa's Star Mart. Mussaed Ahmed Al-Jarrah, who until last year served in the Saudi Embassy in Morocco, is among the current and former officials named in the order by Netburn, directing the Saudis to make available for testimony. Al-Thumairy and al-Bayoumi were also cited. Mussaed Ahmed Al-Jarrah was a Saudi Foreign Ministry official, who had joined the Saudi Embassy in 1999 in Washington, DC, two years prior to the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001. He left the United States in 2005, after coming under FBI scrutiny because of his suspected ties to other Saudis linked to Al Qaeda. 9/11 hijack pilot and ringleader Mohamed Atta made calls to a cut out at the Morocco Embassy in Washington DC at numbers 202-462-7979 and 202-462-7722 in Jan 2001. Mussaed Ahmed Al-Jarrah was nearby at the Saudi Embassy in Washington DC in Jan 2001, that phone number is 202-342-3700. Mussaed Ahmed Al-Jarrah has deep links to associates from and in Morocco. Al-Jarrah's duties were strongly related to Saudi-funded mosques across the US, including "overseeing employees of the Saudi Ministry of Islamic Affairs at Islamic centers," financially supported by the Saudi government like terrorist Imam Anwar Al Awlaki.
