Big hairy 9/11 bollocks courtesy of the BBC


Per the BBC News website 7th September 2006:

Arabic TV channel Al-Jazeera has broadcast what it says is unseen footage of Osama Bin Laden meeting some of the 9/11 hijackers.

Al-Jazeera also showed "suicide" videos by Wael al-Shihri and Hamza al-Ghamdi, two of the hijackers who crashed planes into the World Trade Center.


Per the BBC News website 23rd September 2001:

Saudi Arabian pilot Waleed Al Shehri was one of five men that the FBI said had deliberately crashed American Airlines flight 11 into the World Trade Centre on 11 September.

His photograph was released, and has since appeared in newspapers and on television around the world.

Now he is protesting his innocence from Casablanca, Morocco.

He told journalists there that he had nothing to do with the attacks on New York and Washington, and had been in Morocco when they happened. He has contacted both the Saudi and American authorities, according to Saudi press reports.

He acknowledges that he attended flight training school at Daytona Beach in the United States, and is indeed the same Waleed Al Shehri to whom the FBI has been referring.

But, he says, he left the United States in September last year, became a pilot with Saudi Arabian airlines and is currently on a further training course in Morocco.

I had a feeling you would spot that anomaly too. This has often been put-down to a spelling error however I find it strange that he confirms that he is the very same individual and has done so subsequently.

There are other anomalies about this tape too.

On the "other anomalies link I read:

Californian Adam Gadahn, wearing a white robe and turban, introduces the message by calling on Westerners to convert,” reports CNN. “We invite all Americans and believers to Islam, whatever their role and status in Bush and Blair’s world order,” Gahahn declares. “Decide today, because today could be your last day.”

This brings to mind the two Fox News journalists who were recently kidnapped in Gaza and were "forced to convert to Islam" before being released.

Well JF perhaps you could present your evidence that Mr Gadahn was coerced in any way?
