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.
