Skip to comments.New 9/11 records offer tantalizing puzzle pieces

An ongoing lawsuit has pried loose new records linked to a family of Sarasota Saudis who left home in a hurry just before 9/11.
It was Halloween night, 2001. The horrors of 9/11 were still fresh on the the minds of Americans.
At a time when everyone was on edge, the sight of a man disposing documents in a dumpster behind a Bradenton storage facility aroused suspicion. Summoned to the scene, Manatee County sheriffs deputies confronted the man, who had a Tunisian passport.
According to FBI records, authorities searched the dumpster and found a self-printed manual on terrorism and Jihad, a map of the inside of an unnamed airport, a rudimentary last will and testament, a weight-to-fuel ratio calculation for a Cessna 172 aircraft, flight training information from the Flight Training Center in Venice [Fla.] and printed maps of Publix shopping centers in Tampa

I’d like to know what walked out of the national archive in Sandy Berger’s shorts.
In a moment of sloppiness
There are still more of em here in Tampa.
Thanks for posting.
This is in the Miami Herald...OMG...what’s wrong with the MSM these days?
Well, how special. Records will be sealed until 2039.
I don’t believe the federal government had anything to do with it. But I’m starting to wonder if they knew about it and did nothing to stop it just so they could get the Patriot Act passed.
. . .In 2002, the FBI tried to lure the Ghazzawis back into the country by having their Sarasota homeowners’ association file a legal action for unpaid dues, the Herald story reports. But the maneuver did not require them to reenter the country, and the documents were signed elsewhere using a notary. Esam Ghazzawi’s signature was notarized by the vice consul of the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon in September 2003, and Deborah Ghazzawi’s signature was notarized in Riverside, Calif., the Herald story reports. . .
. . .Security records of cars passing through a checkpoint at the Prestancia gated community indicated that Mr al-Hijjis home, 4224 Escondito Circle, had been visited a number of times by Mohamed Atta, the leader of the 19-strong hijack team, who piloted American Airlines Flight 11 into the North Tower of the World Trade Centre in 2001.
The logs also indicated that Marwan Al-Shehhi, who crashed United Airlines Flight 175 into the South Tower, and Ziad Jarrah, who was at the controls of United Airlines Flight 93 when it crashed in a field in Pennsylvania, had visited the house.
All three men had trained to fly at Venice Airport, which is 19 miles from Sarasota. . .
every cab driver in NYC knew something was up on 9/6.
Amazing that POS got away with that.
Welcome to Free Republic.
LIHOP instead of MIHOP, not nearly as stupid of an idea, but almost.
Nice Pollyanna response? Ya been asleep?
Ya didn't hear the the fed gov was caught exposed spying on, hacking and monitoring law abiding innocent America while at the same time aiding and abetting a lawless country killing invasion of tens of millions?
Ya think this is all an accident? Just happenstance?
You and middle America being intentionally incrementally replaced, robbed and economically gang banged by those who are supposed to represent you. Ya think this is just incompetence?
Ya think Bush bringing in more Muslims into the U.S., AFTER 911 than entered in the previous two decades was a fluke?
Ya think government looting the tax payers and bailing out corrupt bankers was an accident?
Ya think all this is just tin foil conspiracy BS do ya?
Thank you for your brilliant response, Einstein. But I didn’t know all opinions and theories had to be run through you before posting. I’ll check with you next time.
People will believe with all their hearts that Obama is out to destroy America. But anyone who questions the Bushes is considered a wacko. And that is the reason we’re in the shape we’re in. Way too many people trust people who haven’t earned their trust.
One only need look at the facts....For 30+ years tens of millions have poured in illegally....It’s changed our history, and in fact undermined and compromised our very electoral process...Most were not paying attention or just didn’t care.
None of this was an accident.
Anyone who talked about the dangers of a second attack on the World Trade Centre - prior to 2001 - appeared to be a conspiracy nut. But look what happened - and yet, even that major assualt, for which not one person has been subject to an open judicial proceeding, is enough to shake people from the torpor of regarding everything as ok.
The population moves, which you note in your post, are also extraordinary, yet go without comment.
The Middle East policy which sees the US and EU arming al-Qaida in Syria (under some other phoney name) is just amazing, but people wink at it.
