U.S. ambassador Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz links to 9/11 Terrorists in San Diego. FLORIDA BULLDOG: FBI probe of tie between Saudi ambassador, al Qaeda leader put on ice. For 14 years, the FBI kept secret that a top al Qaeda leader captured in Pakistan in 2002 possessed the unlisted phone number of an offshore company tied to Saudi Arabia’s U.S. ambassador, Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz.
The news got out last year after President Obama ordered the release of the “28 pages,” a long-suppressed chapter of a 2003 congressional report on 9/11. Also disclosed: FBI agents in Denver were assigned to investigate the company, ASPCOL Corporation, which the FBI described as “the umbrella corporation that manages the Colorado residence of Prince Bandar.” But agents assigned to investigate ASPCOL, whose unlisted number was found in the phone book of “high-value” Guantanamo detainee Abu Zubaydah, quickly suspended the probe. “The Denver office did not attempt to make any local inquiries about ASPCOL, as they believed that any inquiries regarding ASPCOL would be quickly known by Prince Bandar’s employees,” the 28 pages said. “Due to the sensitivity of this matter, they decided to hold the investigation of ASPCOL in abeyance until they received additional guidance from FBI headquarters.”
The 28 pages included new information about that matter, saying that FBI agents who searched Bassnan’s home found copies of 31 cashier’s checks payable to Bassnan’s wife totaling $74,000 that were “drawn on the Riggs Bank account of Prince Bandar’s wife.” The checks, from February 1999 to May 30, 2002, were supposed to be for nursing services, but “there is no evidence that Bassnan’s wife provided nursing services.” The pages also said that Prince Bandar himself sent checks directly to Bassnan and his wife. Those checks, cashed in 1998, were for $15,000 and $10,000. FBI Executive Assistant Director Pasquale D’Amuro told Congress on Oct. 9, 2002, “What the money was for is what we don’t know.” Bandar, 68, was Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the U.S. from 1983 to 2005.
Anwar Al-Awlaki was the Imam for the 9/11 hijackers at the Al-Ribat Al-Islami mosque (also known as Rabat) on the La Mesa-San Diego border. US investigators will later conclude he is connected to al-Qaeda and involved in the 9/11 plot. After living together in Phoenix since December 2000, 9/11 hijackers Hani Hanjour and Nawaf Al-hazmi (second-in-command of 9/11 hijackers behind Atta) move to Falls Church, Virginia, where Imam Anwar al-Awlaki now preaches. The FBI says Anwar al-Awlaki had closed door meetings with hijackers Nawaf Alhazmi and Khalid Almihdhar in 2000 while all three of them were living in San Diego. Police later find the phone number of Anwar al-Awlaki’s mosque when they search “would-be twentieth hijacker” Ramzi bin al-Shibh’s apartment in Germany. Anwar al-Awlaki works as an imam for the Denver Islamic Society from 1994 to 1996.
Al-Qaeda agent Ziyad Khaleel lives in Denver in the early 1990s until about 1998, and is vice president of the Denver Islamic Society where Anwar al-Awlaki is the Imam. Ziyad Khaleel was living at an apartment complex at 1050 Dahlia St DENVER, CO 80246 until (07/01/1998). In the late 1990s, Anwar al-Awlaki was approached by an al-Qaeda facilitator known as Ziyad Khaleel, who performed tasks for the terror network, for example paying for a satellite phone to be used by Osama bin Laden in the 1998 US embassy bombings in Africa. Does the FBI 2002 investigation of Anwar al-Awlaki link to the FBI 2002 investigation of the Sarasota Saudi Family, information on both investigations were withheld by the FBI. A DC hooker who Anwar al-Awlaki paid $400 for sex told the FBI that al-Awlaki “likes to use escort services” when he travels to Florida. Ziyad Khaleel and al-Awlaki were both connected to a Charitable Society for Social Welfare (CSSW), founded by an associate of Osama bin Laden. al-Awlaki served Charitable Society for Social Welfare (CSSW) as its vice president for a time. Radical Yemeni-AmericAnwar al-Awlaki and his followers in San Diego had met Nawaf Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar, two of the five al-Qaeda operatives who would crash American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon on September 11.
Mohdar Abdullah, Osama Awadallah, and Omer Bakarbashat all worked at the Sam’s Star Texaco station in La Mesa. In time, so would 9/11 hijacker Nawaf al-Hazmi, hired by a manager at the station and the owner Sam Mustafa on the basis of a recommendation from someone attending Anwar al-Awlaki’s mosque. Mohdar Abdullah was charismatic and well-liked. He lived in an apartment complex around the corner from Awlaki’s mosque. When police searched the apartment shortly after September 11, Abdullah’s computer was loaded with anti-American writings and videos, including e-mails proposing extravagant terrorist plots and referencing martyrs and grenade launchers. The FBI would later suspect that Abdullah had specific advance knowledge of the attacks due to his unusual behavior in the weeks prior, but a case was never mounted. Cleric al-Awlaki’s name is listed on an IRS Form 990 filed by the Charitable Society for Social Welfare for an now-defunct U.S. branch of the organization. al-Awlaki is listed as vice president on page 4 of the document.
Omer Bakarbashat was a young Saudi who lived in the same apartment building as MohdarAbdullah. Bakarbashat viewed Anwar al-Awlaki as “almost a god,” according to an FBI agent. Osama Awadallah, a Jordanian immigrant, roomed with Bakarbashat for a time. The FBI later said they believed he shared the Saudi’s exalted view of Anwar al-Awlaki. When searched after September 11, Awadallah’s home was filled with photographs, videotapes, and news articles featuring Osama bin Laden, as well as flyers containing bin Laden’s fatwas. Mohdar Abdullah, Osama Awadallah, and Omer Bakarbashat were all present at a meeting at Sam’s Star Texaco station in La Mesa on the morning of September 10th, 2001 saying “It’s finally going to happen“.
Mohdar Abdullah worked at the Sam’s Star Texaco station in La Mesa owned by terrorist Sam Mustafa. When interviewed by the FBI after 9/11, Mohdar Abdullah denied having advance knowledge of attacks. In May 2004, it was learned from reports about Mohdar Abdullah bragging to fellow inmates at a California prison in September- October 2003 that he had known 9/11 hijackers Hazmi and Mihdhar were planning a terrorist attack. The stories attributed to Abdullah are not entirely consistent with each other. Specifically, according to one inmate, Mohdar Abdullah claimed an unnamed individual had notified him that Hazmi and Mihdhar would be arriving in Los Angeles with plans to carry out an attack. Mohdar Abdullah allegedly told the same inmate that he had driven the two al Qaeda operatives from Los Angeles to San Diego. Another inmate has recalled Abdullah claiming he first heard about the hijackers’ terrorist plans after they arrived in San Diego, when they told him they planned to fly an airplane into a building and invited him to join them on the plane. According to this inmate, Abdullah also claimed to have found out about the 9/11 attacks three weeks in advance, a claim that appears to dovetail with evidence that Abdullah may have received a phone call from Hazmi around that time, that he stopped making calls from his telephone after August 25, 2001, and that, according to his friends, he started acting strangely.
December 29, 1999: Bin Laden’s ‘Florida Procurement Agent’ Ziyad Khaleel Detained in Jordan: Police in Jordan detain Ziyad Khaleel, who the FBI calls a Florida-based “procurement agent” for Osama bin Laden. The FBI says Khaleel’s role is to “procure computers, satellite telephones, and covert surveillance equipment” for al-Qaeda leaders. [Newsweek, 2/7/2000] In 1995, Khaleel started studied at Columbia College in Kansas City. The following year, using money sent by others, the FBI monitored him as he helped bin Laden buy a satellite phone (see November 1996-Late December 1999 and November 1996-Late August 1998). He continued to buy new minutes and parts for the phone at least through 1998 (see July 29-August 7, 1998). [Knight Ridder, 9/20/2001]. While living in the US, Ziyad Khaleel also was helping Hamas, the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), and working as a regional director for the Islamic American Relief Agency (IARA), which was directly funding bin Laden (see November 1996-Late December 1999). US intelligence also linked him to the Al-Kifah Refugee Center in 1994, a charity front with ties to both bin Laden and the CIA (see 1986-1993). Once in custody, Khaleel cooperates with the FBI and is said to provide “crucial evidence about bin Laden’s US operations.” But he is quickly released. He will graduate from Columbia College Columbia MO later in 2000. [Newsweek, 2/7/2000; Knight Ridder, 9/20/2001] He will continue to raise money in the US for Palestinian groups the US government will later say are terrorist-related. He will leave the US around early 2001 and apparently dies in a car crash in Saudi Arabia in 2002. [St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 1/22/2003; Newsweek, 10/20/2004].

“A sheikh named Muneer Arafat came to St. Louis talking all that jihad talk prior to the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks“. In St. Louis, 1996 to 2000, Muneer Arafat became a well-known lecturer at different Masjids and built up quite a following. He gave lectures at local mosques that almost exclusively focused on jihad week in and week out and this got him into trouble with Sheikh Muhammad Nur of the Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis who at one point banned him from giving lectures at the Gateway Masjid. Muneer Arafat was the Imam at the Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton (ISSB) Mosque from early March 2000 to the end of 2003, at the time it was a little wood frame house on N. Lockwood Ridge Rd, he showed up just prior to Mohamed Atta and the rest of the 9/11 terrorists in nearby Nokomis Fl in June 2000.
FBI Report on Muslim Terror Cleric Anwar Al-Awlaki Indicates he Visited Florida Looking For Hookers. A DC hooker who Anwar al-Awlaki paid $400 for sex told the FBI that when he arrived at her Melrose Hotel room in Washington, DC, she looked through the peephole and thought to herself that her tall, bearded customer “looked like Osama bin Laden.” She described Anwar Awlaki as “very polite,” adding that he said he “likes to use escort services” when he travels to Florida. Where in Florida? Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Tampa, Sarasota, Fort Myers? There is no doubt in my mind that Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat knew and had contact with Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki through their mutual friend Ziyad Khaleel prior to the 9/11 terror attack. Sarasota Fl Imam Muneer Arafat quotes “I’m not opposed to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s goal of destroying Israel and replacing it with an Islamic state”. “Muslims need to stay unified, and they should support the Palestinian uprising known as the intifada”. Muneer Arafat had a roommate and associate by the name of Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa in Columbia MO prior to Muneer Arafat’s March 2000 arrival in Sarasota Fl. Mohamed Atta and several other 9/11 Hijackers arrive in the Venice-Sarasota Fl area in June 2000. Imam Muneer Arafat has advocated suicide bombers in his sermons, see one such given at the Islamic Institute of Orange County; Dec. 23, 2005 Sh. Muneer Arafat – Friday khutbah 31 minutes 5.24 MB.
