SARASOTA HERALD TRIBUNE: Sarasota family had ‘many connections’ to 9/11 terror attacks. Contrary to previous statements made by the FBI to the news media, a family living in the south Sarasota neighborhood of Prestancia had “many connections” to the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, according to newly released FBI documents. The family, Anoud and Abdul azziz al-Hijji, HIS PHOTO, had links to 9/11 hijackers — including Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi, who trained at a Venice flight school in preparation for the assault on New York and Washington, D.C., that killed 2,996. Six weeks after 9/11, agents found that Prestancia’s digital scan system had picked up at least two license plates registered to Atta and Ziad Jarrah, another 9/11 terrorist, who had allegedly visited the Escondito Circle house in the months leading up to the attacks.

9/11 Hijack Pilot Mohamed Atta shows up in the Sarasota Fl area in the month of June 2000, Atta and his partner in mass murder Marwan al-Shehhi set up shop in a small pink house about 10 miles south of Sarasota on West Laurel Rd in Nokomis Fl.
9/11 hijack pilots Atta and Shehhi had not settled on where they would obtain their flight training when they arrived in Florida. In contrast, Ziad Jarrah had already arranged to attend the Florida Flight Training Center (FFTC) in Venice, Florida. Jarrah arrived in Newark on June 27 and then flew to Sarasota. He immediately began the private pilot program at FFTC, intending to get a multi-engine license. Jarrah moved in with some of the flight instructors affiliated with his school and bought a car.
Within 30 days of Mohamed Atta arriving in the Sarasota area, he purchased a 1989 red Pontiac Grand AM from a Venice Fl car dealer and had the vehicle registered with the Sarasota County Tag office with plate number D79DDV. The 1989 red pontiac Grand AM that Mohamed Atta purchased on July 17, 2000 had 62,696 miles on it and had VIN #1G2WKI4W7KF262689.

Mohamed Atta did NOT have a Florida drivers license when he purchased the car in Venice Fl, Atta obtained a Florida drivers license on May 2nd, 2001, the FL drivers license number was A300540683210, see info above. May 2 2001, Mohamed Atta and Ziad Jarrah were together visiting a Department of Motor Vehicles office in Lauderdale Lakes, Florida, to get Florida driver’s licenses.
Mohamed Atta and Ziad Jarrah were 2 of the 9/11 hijackers who purchased a vehicle in the USA. In mid-September 2000, Atta and Shehhi applied to change their immigration status from tourist to student, stating their intention to study at Huffman until September 1, 2001. In late September, they decided to enroll at Jones Aviation in Sarasota, Florida, about 20 miles north of Venice. In early October 2000, they took the Stage I exam for instruments rating at Jones Aviation in Sarasota and failed. Very upset, they said they were in a hurry because jobs awaited them at home. Atta and Shehhi then returned to Huffman Aviation in Vencie Fl.
Ziad Jarrah pays for phone number 941-960-0434 from Alltell Communications, Jarrah opened a bank account at West Coast Guaranty (First National), in Sarasota, Florida, with a $2,000 cash deposit. Ziad Jarrah buys a 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse, FL TAG T92QBT in Sarasota Fl in November 2000, he sells this car on the 6th of September 2001.

The reason I go into Mohamed Atta and Ziad Jarrah’s car details is related to the recent FOX NEWS article about 9/11 Hijackers Relied on Domestic Support Network in USA. Let’s get real here, the Sarasota Fl area was the base of operations for 9/11 Al-Qaeda Hijack Pilots Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah, they had a support network entrenched in the area when Al-Qaeda linked Imam Muneer Arafat shows up at the Sarasota-Bradenton Islamic Center (Mosque) in March 2000 just 3 months before the Hijackers show up in the Sarasota area in June of 2000.
See Jan 20, 2003 article about Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “U.S. Looks For Local Ties, Sources Say“ published just after he was arrested on Immigration charges by ICE agents in November 2002. Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat had been the roommate of Al-Qaeda procurement terrorist Ziyad Sadaqa aka Ziyad Khaleel who purchased a satelite phone in the USA and had it shipped to Osama bin-Laden for use in the 1998 Embassy bombings in Africa.
FOX NEWS…Declassified documents, exclusive interviewsand phone and banking records present an overwhelming case that the 9/11 hijackers relied heavily on a domestic support network in the USA to facilitate the plot.
Former Sen. Bob Graham, D-Fla., who led the first congressional investigation into the 9/11 attacks in 2002, was asked by the Fox News Specials Unit if he believes the hijackers’ support network remains in place today because it was never fully identified or disrupted after the attacks.
Imam Muneer Arafat’s former mosque in Sarasota raised money for martyrs families – hosted terrorists Sami Al Arian, Mazen Al Najjar and Hussam Jubara. Muneer Arafat, revealed in court that he declined Sami Al Arian’s invitation to join Palestinian Islamic Jihad because he was a member of a different group !
