The Broward Bulldog News, the Sarasota Herald Tribune, and the Miami Herald are all involved in a Federal Lawsuit filed against the FBI and the DOJ seeking release of secret information about an undisclosed FBI investigation that took place in Sarasota Fl in late 2001 and all of 2002 that targeted a Sarasota Saudi family living in the gated community of Prestancia Sarasota Fl who linked to Mohamed Atta and other Al-Qaeda operatives before 9/11/2001. Al-Qaeda operatives Mohamed Atta and Adnan el-Shukrijumah who just happened to be used car dealers, were at the 4224 Escondito Circle Sarasota Fl address on numerous occasions.
According to lawsuit filed by the Broward Bulldog online newspaper and Dan Christensen against the DOJ and the FBI in US District Court, Southern District of Florida, Sarasota Saudi Family members had Mohamed Atta, Marwan Al-Shehhi, Ziad Jarrah, Wissam Hammoud and Adnan El-Shukrijumah over to 4224 Escondito Circle Sarasota Fl Prior to the 9/11 suicide jetliner attack. According to security people at the Prestancia gated community in Sarasota the license plates of vehicles owned by Mohamed Atta, Marwan Al-Shehhi, Ziad Jarrah, Wissam Hammoud and Adnan El-Shukrijumah had been to 4224 Escondito Circle Prior to 9/11 Attack. During the time period of June 2000 to August of 2001 Mohamed Atta, Marwan Al-Shehhi, Ziad Jarrah, Wissam Hammoud and Adnan El-Shukrijumah appear to have visited wealthy Saudi business Esam Ghazzawi and his son-in law Abdulaziz al-Hijji at 4224 Escondito Circle Prior to 9/11 Attack. I had run the license plate of Mohamed Atta, D79DDV, on May 27 2002 it was on a 1989 red Pontiac, Atta and Marwan Al-Shehhi had been living on W. Laurel Rd in Nokomis Fl.
They allege the suspects also had a large amount of false Ontario drivers’ licenses, Canadian Citizenship cards and a host of bogus Social Insurance numbers with them. It took authorities five months to bring the gangs down, led by undercover officers who managed to gain the trust of those believed to have led the groups. Cops posed as purchasers, exporters and receivers of the goods, as they gathered evidence to close in on the men in a project they dubbed X5. “This was not random or petty car theft,” declares Det. Staff Sgt. Scott Mills. The groups involved were well-organized. The cars and the SUVs were destined for West Africa and the Middle East. Many of those accused are from Toronto, while others hail from Brampton, Mississauga, Markham and Vaughan.
