Muktar Said-Ibrahim, the suspected London bomber, was jailed for five years in 1996 at Wood Green crown court in north London for his role in a teenage gang which robbed people in the Welwyn Garden City and Stevenage areas of Hertfordshire.

Former friends were quoted as saying that, as a youngster, he smoked cannabis and was known as a troublemaker.

He applied to become a British citizen in November 2003, and was granted a passport last September.

The Home Office declined to explain how it was possible to get a passport with his criminal record.

It has been alleged that Mohamed Atta may have been recruited by the security services while in custody.

Was Muktar Said-Ibrahim recruited by the security services?

The father of Mohamed Atta said his son was framed. He said he talked to his son after the attacks and believes he was later killed by Israeli intelligence forces.

Mossad seems to have been working alongside Atta?

From the Sunday Herald:

According to a 61-page report, drafted after an investigation by the DEA and the US immigration service, the Israelis were organised into cells of four to six people.

The significance of what the Israelis were doing didn’t emerge until after September 11, 2001, when a report by a French intelligence agency noted “according to the FBI, Arab terrorists and suspected terror cells lived in Phoenix, Arizona, as well as in Miami and Hollywood, Florida, from December 2000 to April 2001 in direct proximity to the Israeli spy cells”...

Mohammed Atta and Marwan al-Shehi had settled in Hollywood, Florida, along with three other hijackers... where another Mossad team was operating close by.

The French intelligence report says the leader of the Mossad cell in Florida rented apartments “right near the apartment of Atta and al-Shehi”. More than a third of the Israeli “art students” claimed residence in Florida. Two other Israelis connected to the art ring showed up in Fort Lauderdale. At one time, eight of the hijackers lived just north of the town.

The following material comes from Daniel Hopsicker's book 'Welcome to Terrorland'.

1. In Venice Florida, Mohamed Atta lived for two months with an American stripper/lingerie model named Amanda Keller.

2. Atta enjoyed a party lifestyle with Keller nearly every night. He was a heavy drinker, snorted coke, was a stylish dresser and wore expensive jewelry.

3. According to Keller, Atta loved pork chops.

4. In Miami, Atta consorted with women known to be linked to the Mafia.

5. Atta’s email list included names of people who worked for defense contractors. One, for instance, worked for Canadian firm Virtual Prototypes, which helped develop the avionics for F-15, F-22 and B-2.

6. Atta was enrolled as a student at the International Officer’s School of Maxwell Airforce Base, and witnesses recall him having been introduced around at an officers' club party.

7. According to Keller, Atta spoke Hebrew.

8. Atta, Keller, a stripper named Linda and two Germans, Peter and Johan, partied for three days in Key West. Atta paid for everything. Rented three rooms, one just for the men’s luggage, which Keller says contained drugs. Key West Airport is a known drug transit point.

9. The FBI timeline says Atta left Venice Florida in December 2000 after completing his flight training. Dozens of locals say different – his landlord, neighbours, cab drivers, restaurant employees and his girlfriend, for a few instances – and have been told not to talk about it by federal authorities. The FBI publicly sought information regarding Atta’s time in various US locations, but not Venice Florida where the airfield reportedly has links to CIA operations.

1o. Six nights before the 9 11 attack, at a bar called Shuckums in Ft Lauderdale, Atta and two companions got drunk. Manager Tony Amos and bartender Patricia Idrissi identified both.

11. Wally Hilliard upon arriving in Florida entered into aviation businesses with an assortment of criminal and covert intelligence elements.

12. Hilliard denied knowing Atta. Keller recalled, on a visit to the airport, having Hilliard ask her, "What’s a nice girl like you doing with a guy like Mohamed?"

13. Less than three weeks after Atta and Marwan Al-Shehi began flying lessons at Huffman Aviation, a Lear jet owned by its financier, Wally Hilliard, carrying 43 pounds of heroin was seized by the DEA. Authorities called it the biggest seizure of heroin ever in central Florida.

14. John Villada, an aviation executive in Naples Florida: "After Wally’s plane was impounded with the heroin and his pilots had machine guns stuck in their faces, the DEA came to visit our maintenance facility and Wally shouted out to me – right in front of the DEA guy – 'Make sure all the heroin and cocaine gets hidden!'" Hilliard's mock warning seemed to show the DEA how little he thought of them, and how well he was protected.

15. Hilliard had got his Lear jet from World Jet Inc, owned by drug smuggling brothers Don and Bill Whittington, who had supplied the plane to CIA drug smuggler Barry Seal.

16. A former Huffman executive, speaking about the hijackers: "Early on I gleaned that these guys had government protection. They were let into this country for a specific purpose. It was a business deal."

17. Jeb Bush accompanied the FBI when they removed the flight school records on the early morning of September 12, and flew them to Washington.

18. Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris have flown and endorsed Hilliard’s air carrier.

19. In the days following 9/11, a number of Saudis fled the country from Florida after the attacks. They flew on Wally Hillier’s charter aircraft to private fields of military contractor Raytheon, and departed on a 747.

20. After the attacks, a virtually non-existent company that operated out of Venice Airport under Huffman’s license called Britannia Aviation was awarded a five-year, multi-million dollar contract to run the maintenance facility at Lychburg Virginia Regional Airport. (FYI, Lynchburg is the home of Jerry Falwell’s Liberty Baptist University.) 44. Britannia executive Peter Martens boasted that his company had been providing maintenance at Venice Airport for "Caribe Air," which is a notorious CIA proprietary carrier.

21. Many of the Venice flight trainers moonlight by flying "missionary flights" to Central and South America, for such organizations as Pat Robertson’s Operation Hope.

22. Most of Atta's closest associates in Venice were not Arabs, but Europeans with connection to the drug trade.

On 12 April 1986, Mahmoud Mahmoud Atta, ambushed a passenger bus in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

Atta was arrested by FBI agents and held in prison in the U.S. for more than three years before being extradited to Israel for trial in October 1990.

In October 1991, an Israeli court found Atta guilty and sentenced him to life imprisonment.

Snopes.com is considered by many to be a strongly pro-Bush institution.

According to Snopes: "many news organizations, including The Boston Globe, reported that US authorities believed Atta had attacked a commercial bus in Israel in 1986.

"But Second Circuit US Court of Appeals records show that was a case of mistaken identity. Another man, a naturalized US citizen who used the alias of Mahmoud Atta, was arrested in that attack."

Muktar Said-Ibrahim, the suspected bomber, was jailed for five years in 1996...

It is believed he was "bounced around" from one institution to another - Feltham in west London, Aylesbury, Bedford, Huntercombe near Henley-on-Thames, and Wood Hill at Milton Keynes.

The number of moves is highly unusual for a juvenile, and implies either appearances at different courts, or being seen as a problem by governors. He was regularly moved until he completed his sentence in September 1998.

He applied to become a British citizen in November 2003, and was granted a passport last September.

The Home Office declined to explain how it was possible to get a passport with his criminal record -

The following is taken from Xymphora:

Mohamed Atta was in Florida in April 2000, attending a pilot school and sending e-mails to a group which included people working for U. S. defence contractors (hardly the kind of group you'd think a quiet student in Hamburg, Germany would be able to assemble).

The problem is that in the summer of 2000 (I assume the article is referring to 2000, as the summer of 2001 would be even weirder) he apparently was presenting a model of Washington, D. C. to his architecture class in Hamburg.

He is in fact only supposed to have arrived in the United States in June 2000. How was he simultaneously at pilot school in April in Florida, and still a student in Hamburg who hasn't yet left for the United States?

...As I have already written, the Atta born in Egypt and living in Hamburg is almost certainly not the same person as Atta the hijacker. The fact that there are two 'Attas' tells us a lot (for one thing, it tells us how he can be in two places at once!).

Who had the power to pick a suitable identity (right age, ethnicity, piously fundamentalist Muslim) and give it to the man who used the Atta identity in Florida?

Who presented us with the fake identity, and who continues to cover up the truth? Why was the obviously skilled pilot who flew into the World Trade Center attending two-bit (the first one went out of business while he was attending it, and the second one also has a shady past) flying schools in South Florida, which wouldn't have been able to train him to so skilfully fly large passenger jets?

The reason is that flight schools can accept foreign students on student visas, and the paperwork for the visas which is prepared by the schools on behalf of the students forms the main basis for the fictitious identities of the hijackers (the seemingly senseless mailing of a visa renewal to two of the hijackers six months after September 11, which caused such outrage in the United States, was just another way of emphasizing the personal identity of the hijackers to the American people).

Why was Atta so extraordinarily sloppy in his relations with government bureaucracy (driving without a licence, not attending at his court hearing, abandoning a plane at Miami airport, and having, of all things, visa problems), all out of line with what is supposedly the al-Qaeda training manual which insists on terrorists keeping a low profile, unless he was trying to create an obvious record of his existence and identity in the United States?

My guess is that the person playing the role of Mohamed Atta was an American citizen... and intelligence operative, whose real name we'll never know.

Mohammed Naseem, Birmingham's most prominent Muslim leader, says he has doubts about the evidence which suggests that Muslims carried out the bomb attacks in London on July 7 and 21.

Mr Naseem denied there was any convincing evidence the September 11 attacks on New York had been carried out by the al-Qaeda terrorist organisation.

He said: “Muslims across the world know of no organisation called al-Qaeda. That information comes from the CIA.”

Mr Naseem, who represents a congregation of several thousand, was speaking in Bordesley Green close to the scene of yesterday's police anti-terrorism operation. Asked whether he believed Muslim terrorists attacked London on July 7 and 21, he said: “I have not seen the evidence for that.” He said: “All we have is CCTV camera photos, identity cards and driving licences. These could have been innocent men.”

Speaking to BBC Radio WM he questioned the existence of al-Qaeda.

"I don't think al-Qaeda exists because we Muslims all over the world have not known this organisation," he said.

"The only information about this organisation is coming from the CIA. Now, the CIA is not known for telling the truth."

Dr Naseem is one of the elder statesmen of Islam in Britain and has been a leading figure among Muslims for many years in Birmingham.

His position in the city arguably means he runs one of the most important Islamic institutions in Britain, the mosque being regularly used by thousands of Muslims from across the west Midlands.

Photos of alleged bombers. In six of the pictures there are no people, other than the bombers.

http://www.legitgov.org/cctv_image_of_uk_suspects_240705.html

From legitgov.org:

Was a "Bomber" Superimposed onto Metropolitan Police Surveillance Camera Photo?

Below is a CCTV image circulated by the Metropolitan Police.
As Peter Kofod wrote,"Take a look at this photo of the four alleged London bombers."

http://news.yahoo.com/photo/050724/photos_pl_afp/050724214150_vesdc65b_photo1

"At first, (almost) everything looks fine, but look closer... look at the guy with the white hat... check out his left arm (HIS left arm).... the lower of the rails of the railing is IN FRONT of his left arm... where of course it shouldn't be! I'm NO image specialist, but this sure looks ridiculous. I'd say it´s a fake."

The CLG has also inspected this image. "The white-hatted man was apparently superimposed onto the photo. Not only is his arm 'behind' a railing that is supposedly several feet behind HIM, but also, upon magnification in Photoshop, part of the bar actually goes into his head. This was 'touched-up,' but pixels of his head mix unmistakably with pixels from the railing." --Michael Rectenwald.

Allegedly, "private safety personnel... have unsupervised access to trains and tracks at all times. They also control the CCTV."

Allegedly, "the Israeli security company ICTS was in charge of 9/11 airports and the Madrid train station."

Two Israeli men working for a moving-and-storage company who attempted Kings Bay Submarine Base Friday are being held for deportation.

The two entered the Franklin gate about 10:30 a.m. Friday to pick up some items in base housing, base spokesman Ed Buczek said.

Neither was able to present valid work permits to security personnel, and one had an expired passport. Base personnel and bomb-sniffing dogs inspected the van, prompting a lockdown of the base.

The Associated Press

ERWIN, Tenn. (AP) - Two Israeli men who led the Unicoi County sheriff on a high-speed chase in a rented moving truck were placed under arrest and are being investigated by the FBI, local officials said.

SHMUEL DAHAN and Almaliach Naor, both from Israel, were being held without bond Sunday afternoon at the Unicoi County Jail.

Once the men were apprehended, officers also found a "Learn to Fly" brochure in the truck, leading Harris and others to express concern about security at the Nuclear Fuel Services plant in Erwin.

Daniel Hopsicker’s website:

"...the ’learn to fly in Florida’ business card is that of Nissan Giat, also an Israeli military veteran, he said, as well as a free-lance flight instructor in the Miami area, working out of the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport."

The Mercury October 17, 2001 PLYMOUTH (PA) - Two men whom police described as Middle Eastern were detained in the township by federal immigration authorities after being found with detailed video footage of the Sears Tower in Chicago...

The man, who later identified himself as Moshe Elmakias, 30, denied that he did anything and fled the scene, heading west on West Ridge Pike...

~~

The Miami Herald October 3, 2001

WASHINGTON -- As the nation stands on high alert, the FBI is searching for six men stopped by police in the Midwest last weekend but released - even though they possessed photos and descriptions of a nuclear power plant in Florida and the Trans- Alaska pipeline, a senior law enforcement official said Tuesday...

The six men stopped by police were traveling in groups of three in two white sedans, said a senior law enforcement official, who requested anonymity...

In addition to the photographs and other suspicious material, they carried "box cutters and other equipment,’’ the official said. They appeared to be from the Middle East and held Israeli passports.

Israel wants attacks on Iran.

If the USA and Britain are to attack another country in the Middle East, such as Iran, Syria or Saudi Arabia, then public opinion must be moulded and troops must be got ready.

7 July - bombs in London. Support for Bush and Blair rises in the polls. There is an increase in Islamophobia.

27 July - The IRA, believed by some to have previously enjoyed the support of the CIA, formally orders an end to its armed campaign and says it will pursue exclusively peaceful means.
