    A Syrian-born German national accused of helping to plan the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States has been detained by Kurdish forces in Syria, a senior Kurdish commander told AFP on Wednesday. “Mohammed Haydar Zammar has been arrested by Kurdish security forces in northern Syria and is now being interrogated,” the top official said, but did not provide further details. Zammar, who is in his mid-fifties, has been accused of recruiting some of the September 11 hijackers. He was detained in Morocco in December 2001 in an operation involving CIA agents, and was handed over to the Syrian...

    One of the surviving members of the group that organized the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 German citizen Muhammad Zammar has been captured by the YPG. Muhammad Zammar, originally from Syria, had kept the German public and press busy for a long time. Zammar is known as the connecting member of the unit that organized the attacks of September 11, 2001, and was a close friend of the head planner Muhammed Ata. Like Ata, Zammar was part of a Hamburg cell of Al Qaeda and he left Germany immediately after the attacks that changed the world and opened up...

    If there’s something The Handmaid’s Tale author Margaret Atwood knows about, it’s life imitating art. And now, in a wide-ranging interview with Variety, which recognized the celebrated author as one of its Power of Women honorees, Atwood has made a surprising claim about the way she thinks pop culture influenced another event: She said the 9/11 terrorists attacks were borne out of a plot point from Star Wars. Atwood was recounting how a 2000 opera of her acclaimed novel (and now Emmy-winning Hulu series) began with “a film reel going across the top of the stage and showing various things...

    SAN'A, Yemen Feb. 14 A suspected al-Qaida member who blew himself up after being cornered by security forces in a San'a suburb was related to one of the 19 Sept. 11 hijackers, Yemeni security officials said Thursday. Sameer Mohammed Ahmed al-Hada, who died in the confrontation with police Wednesday, was a brother-in-law of Khalid Almihdar, the officials said on condition of anonymity.

    he independent commission charged with investigating 9/11 is now turning its attention to the FBI and apparent intelligence failures in the months before the attacks. The commission is hearing testimony today from current and former intelligence officials, including former FBI Director Louis Freeh, former Attorney General Janet Reno and current Attorney General John Ashcroft. The release of the president's daily intelligence briefing from Aug. 6, 2001, has raised new questions about the FBI's handling of the terrorist threat leading up to 9/11. The main question — what was the FBI doing in the summer of 2001? The Bush administration has...

    Captain Mark Nutsch rode past dead and dying men, the air filled with the iron scent of blood and the acrid stench of gunpowder. Smoke hovered above the field. The horsemen charging alongside him raised their rocket-propelled grenades and fired at the enemy ahead, the resulting explosions rocking them in their saddles. Would the plan work, or was it a death sentence? Either way, this was not how modern warfare was supposed to be fought. A cavalry charge, headlong into enemy gunfire – it was the sort of reckless risk of human life that belonged in the pages of a...

    Court documents recently filed by the government further rock the credibility of Russia Special Counsel Robert Mueller because they show that as FBI Director Mueller he worked to cover up the connection between a Florida Saudi family and the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The documents reveal that Mueller was likely involved in publicly releasing deceptive official agency statements about a secret investigation of the Saudis, who lived in Sarasota, with ties to the hijackers. A Florida journalism nonprofit uncovered the existence of the secret FBI investigation that was also kept from Congress. Under Mueller’s leadership, the FBI tried to discredit the...

Ben Cardin, condemning President Trump’s handling of alleged Russian meddling and comparing it to . . . 9/11 and Pearl Harbor. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The FBI agent who wrote a pre-Sept. 11 warning about Arab students at an Arizona flight school hoped his memo would lead to screenings of Middle Easterners who came to study U.S. airport operations, according to government officials familiar with his account. Agent Kenneth Williams testified behind closed doors Tuesday to lawmakers investigating what the government knew about terrorist threats before Sept. 11. Williams believed his information might provide a significant but prospective lead about Osama bin Laden's intentions, according to lawmakers and government officials familiar with his account. But Williams wrote his memo for terrorism experts...

    AP: FBI Sent Hamas Money in Clinton Days JOHN SOLOMON Associated Press WASHINGTON - While President Clinton was trying to broker an elusive peace between Israelis and Palestinians, the FBI was secretly funneling money to suspected Hamas figures to see if the militant group would use it for terrorist attacks, according to interviews and court documents.

    CIA Director James Woolsey was fighting other bureaucratic battles — instead of [Osama] bin Laden. The CIA was critically short of translators who spoke or read Arabic, Farsi, Pashto and the other languages of the great "terrorist belt." That belt begins on the dirty beaches of Somalia, arcs up the river valleys of Sudan and Egypt, across the desert flats of Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf states, over the dry plateaus of Syria and Iraq, past the wastes of Iran, through the mountains of Afghanistan and Pakistan, and ends in the cold steppes of Central Asia. In the...

Two Arizona congressmen and a former U.S. senator made inquiries on Harry Ellen's behalf about his complaints about the agency and Special Agent Kenneth Williams. The FBI reviewed the complaints but determined they did not warrant an investigation. Williams has...

    Donald Trump’s pick to be FBI director was at the center of a controversial immigrant detentions in the immediate wake of 9/11, when dozens of people were spirited away to maximum security prisons and kept from communicating with their families and lawyers––sometimes for weeks. A government watchdog report shows Christopher Wray and an associate at the Justice Department directed the Bureau of Prisons to keep detainees from having access to lawyers for as long as possible––a move civil liberties advocates find worrisome, and which casts light on how the man who may soon helm the FBI views the relationship between...

Outed as a CIA analyst by Richard Armitage in Plamegate, she was a cause celebre of the anti-war, anti-Bush left in the middle of the last decade, right around the time that Cindy Sheehan was. Sheehan turned out to be a bit … eccentric politically, but oh well.Not good ol’ Valerie Plame.The politically correct term is “globalists” but we live in a politically incorrect age. Anyway, much outrage and dark humor ensued on Twitter after she tweeted that, leading to Plame’s first ill-advised attempt at spin. Chill out, she responded. The...

    Hillary Clinton has compared Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election and her subsequent loss to Donald Trump with the devastation of 9/11. “We have really well-respected security and intelligence veterans saying this was a kind of cyber 9/11 in the sense that it was a direct attack to American institutions,” Clinton said, referring to the terrorist attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda that killed nearly 3,000 people in New York City, Washington and outside of Shanksville, Pennsylvania. “That may sound dramatic but we know they tried to recruit into election systems, not just social media propaganda,” she said on Sunday,...

    H.R. McMaster, President Trump’s embattled national security adviser, labeled the September 11, 2001, Islamic terrorist attacks “mass murder attacks,” instead of calling them acts of terrorism. McMaster made the comments during a Tuesday event at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) marking the 70th anniversary of the National Security Council (NSC). He was addressing the expansion of the NSC from about fifty members in the 1960s, when it was run by Henry Kissinger, another CSIS speaker, to its current size of more than 360 employees. “What has contributed to the growth over time, as well, from 50 or...
