A waiter from the UK was trained to be one of the September 11 hijackers, a Sun article claims. Eighteen months before the Twin Towers were hit, the
unnamed man supposedly turned himself in to the FBI but his story was not believed.
The man, a father of two from Oldham, told a Sun reporter that he informed the FBI of a plan to fly aircraft into buildings but that they disbelieved
him. His case has been reopened as part of the 9-11 inquiry.
A CURRY waiter from Oldham was recruited by al-Qaeda and trained as a September 11 hijacker, he claimed yesterday.
The British Muslim turned himself in to the FBI after having second thoughts ... But they did not believe him — 18 months before the Twin Towers
attack - and let him go.
The article does not contain much more than basic information. If the claims made by this man can be verified, there will obviously be more coming at
a later date. It does, however, point to a definite failure on the part of the FBI in that his story was not followed up.
Not particularly a conspiracy in itself, since such agencies must receive many crank calls. However, I would think that it is general policy to check
out anything that could compromise national security. The failure to do so in this case must be investigated.
