Another Kansas City character:

1993 or 1994 : (SUDAN : BAYAZID aka ABU RIDA AL SURI TRIES TO OBTAIN URANIUM FOR A NUCLEAR WEAPON ON BIN LADEN'S BEHALF --See KC CELL, URANIUM, WMD, TABA INVESTMENTS {see IRAQ, SUDAN}) Bayazid allegedly tried to obtain uranium for a nuclear weapon for bin Laden in 1993 or 1994 in Sudan, according to information that came out of a trial in New York City relating to the 1998 bombing of U.S. embassies in East Africa.
Bayazid, also known as Abu Rida al Suri, is a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Syria. His current whereabouts are unknown."
Age: 41
Last U.S. address: Kansas City, Mo.
A nuclear bomb for Osama bin Laden was a key goal for Syrian-American Mohamed Bayazid, according to court records. Using his U.S. passport to travel, Bayazid allegedly worked as a manager for bin Laden's Taba Investments in Khartoum, Sudan, during the early 1990s, buying uranium as well as tractors and automatic weapons.
His driver's license listed for his home the same address as Benevolence International, an Illinois-based charity whose assets are now frozen.
Bayazid lived in Kansas City until about 1994 and is now variously reported to be dead or living in Sudan or Turkey.
His uncle in Kansas City, Adnan Bayazid, believes his role was limited to buying supplies for the Afghan resistance, and he says that Mohamed grew disillusioned with bin Laden. He warns that officials may have the wrong man. "Mohamed is a very popular name," he says.

Speaking of Taba Investments:

1993 : (PLANTATION, FL : HASSOUN OPENS A BIF INC OFFICE --- See FT LAUDERDALE, CHICAGO CELL, PADILLA, RAED AWAD) : "Mr. [Adham] Hassoun registered the Benevolence International Foundation Inc (BIF) in Plantation, Florida, in 1992 and opened an office in 1993, according to Florida State records. [In November,] Mr Hassoun said he had severed ties with BIF when it moved in May 1993 to Palos Hills, a suburb of Chicago. 'They were looking to open here and some guy recommended me and I helped them out. But then it didn't work out.' " ------From a November [2001] story by the Daily Telegraph in Australia
From the Miami Herald: "It remains unclear exactly when Hassoun's affiliation with Padilla began, but both men attended the Masjid Al-Iman mosque in Fort Lauderdale through much of the 1990s and both were close with its former leader, Raed Awad." ---- From the Miami Herald * Mamdouh Salim : highest ranking member of al Qaeda [IIRC, born in Sudan to Iraqi parents] who used the same phone number of Taba Investments that was found among the posessions of Hikmat Shakir the Iraqi who attended the infamous Malaysian terror summit [see 9/11 HIJACKERS, SAN DIEGO CELL]
[Iraqi] Shakir also had an old number for Taba Investments, an al Qaeda front group. It was the number long used by Mahmdouh Mahmud Salim, the highest-ranking Iraqi member of al Qaeda. According to testimony from al Qaeda informants, [Mahmdouh ] Salim maintained a good relationship with Saddam's intelligence service. Despite all of this, the Qatari authorities released Shakir shortly after they arrested him. ------ "Stephen Hayes:See No Evil, Hear No Evil," (What the 9/11 Commission narrative left out: Iraqis) , Stephen F.
