Paper Says It Has Unseen Video by Atta
Sunday October 1, 2006 2:16 AM
LONDON (AP) - A previously unseen video made by Mohamed Atta, ringleader of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, has been obtained by Britain's The Sunday Times, the newspaper reported Saturday.
In editions available late Saturday, the paper said it had been handed the so-called martyrdom video, but did not reveal the source of the tape.
It reported that Atta was filmed reading a document marked in Arabic as a will as he sat beside fellow hijacker Ziad Jarrah - who seized control of United Airlines flight 93, which crashed into a field in Shanksville, Pa.
The newspaper said that a timecode stamp on the videotape indicated it had been recorded on January 18, 2000 and the recording was made at an al-Qaida training camp in Afghanistan.
There was no soundtrack, the newspaper said. It quoted an unnamed U.S. source as saying that attempts to lip read the tape to transcribe the content had been unsuccessful.

Don't you just love it when the press reports about the press?
Don't help much now.....Don't think it would've then either.
Big freaking deal AQ...you won that round....but we have kicked your ass cross the four corners of this earth ever since...
There could possibly be something in it that Curt Weldon could use.
Who is Curt Weldon ?
Add the following subtitle, "This person is currently rotting in hell."
Maybe no point is releasing to the public, but maybe to the intel agencies.
"The recording could help resolve questions over Atta's whereabouts in January 2000, after he fled his home in Hamburg, Germany.
Osama bin Laden is also shown on the hour-long video addressing supporters at a site in Kandahar, Afghanistan, the newspaper reported. It said a timecode stamp indicated the al-Qaida leader was speaking on January 8, 2000. "
It may indicate something about their planning way back over a year and a half before the attacks.
I am sure -- ore at least hope, that the intel agencies would have someone who can lip read and figure out at least part of what they are saying on the tape.
I have a lot of videos unseen by atta...
The video was time stamped January 18, 2000.
Who was the President then, and still had one year to serve as such?
Who did nothing while storm clouds were gathering?
Congressman Curt Weldon of PA who has been trying to get to the bottom of 'Able Danger'.
All the more reason for it to be turned over and investigated. :>)
If the video has not been seen, how do they really know what's on it?
Actually the UK Times has two long articles about it, one I posted in my post with the picture above and another, more detailed one:
Focus: Chilling message of the 9/11 pilots
At both link there is a note, saying that the actual video will be available starting noon "today" (Sunday, UK time). I think they are about 6 hrs ahead from US Eastern time, so that would make it starting 6 am Sunday Eastern Time (I could be an hour or two off, too lazy to check, but it's approximately correct)
It has one of the hijackers of United 93.....I like to think we won that round too....since they didn't complete their mission.
