I don't recall if I have ever done a thread here or not. However, I did get in a stack (hundreds of pages) of stuff from the CIA a few days ago and noticed something that was new (to me anyways). Seems in December of 1998 two guys were arrested in either NYC or DC for running recon on airport security in preparation for an AQ hijacking in the US. Anyone have further information regarding the two suspects?

I've put out an "all points" to my media and researcher contacts for more information, but seems like this is new to everyone so far.

If those are legit they knew the attack was coming 3 years before it happened. They even say they ran into trouble and postponed it. Those are about the most redacted pages I have ever seen btw.

Well that is about how I would expect a FOIA secret doc to be redacted. Whether it's real or not that's what I would expect the FOIA to get you.

You are correct. Got a stack of several hundred pages in a few days ago. One of the documents is around 5 pages completely redacted (blank pages). Not sure why they wasted the paper to print that one out to send. Many others are just like these, completely redacted except a sentence or two.

By the way, I'm shipping these to a colleague tomorrow and he is going to scan them and post them in the 911 Document Archive.

Classic misinformation put out by the United States Government to try and reinforce their official story claiming that Osama Bin Ladin and Al Qaeda orchestrated the events on 9/11.
These documents have psy ops written all over them.

With a few out of context lines in a disclosed CIA document it is impossible to tell what this document is talking about all we can do is speculate. If there is more information then perhaps we could try to figure it out but right now its just talking about two arrests, it doesn’t even seem to specify when these arrests took place nor is this document even dated which would really help with figuring out what it is talking about. this could be about Ahmed Ressam but this document talks about two people being arrested

The CIA used typewriters in 1998?

Apparently it was all somewhat shabby prior to 9/11...not just the CIA type writers.

The event itself made America a great security/tech wise country it is today. Before that...you could practically bring your rocket launcher in to an airplane. Nothing worked before. Aaah...the good times.

Remember back in 1980's going on dive trip to Bahamas our dive club was a walking arsenal

Dive knives, spear guns, you name it

Got on with a Ka- Bar in my carry ons

Any hijacker on that flight would have been dead meat.........

After looking the docs over, I must say that this is the neatest redacting I have ever seen.

I think it is also the first I have seen using white squares. This is usually done with what would appear to be a black paint brush. I have also never seen a redacted document which leaves names so clearly visible.

It's kind of like they wanted someone to really notice them and the information to be about them.

I will admit, I have not seen every redacted document ever sent out. I can only make a judgement compared to the ones I have seen.

A colleague sent me this from History Commons:




The FBI, FAA, and New York City Police Department get versions of the PDB report. Later in December and again in January 1999 the source says the hijacking has been postponed because two operatives have been arrested in Washington or New York. But the FBI is unable to find any information to support the threat nor is it able to verify any arrests similar to what the source described, and the source remains mysterious.


Well, not so much anymore. Their "source" was the CIA. What is intriguing now is who was the CIA's source? In any event, at least according to the FBI and NYPD, the arrests did not happen.

Additional from the 911 Commission Report (pages 129 - 130):




On Friday, December 4, 1998, the CIA included an article in the Presidential Daily Brief describing intelligence, received from a friendly government, about a threatened hijacking in the United States.




The intelligence community could learn little about the source of the information. Later in December and again in early January 1999, more information arrived from the same source, reporting that the planned hijacking had been stalled because two of the operatives, who were sketchily described, had been arrested near Washington,D.C.or NewYork.After investigation,the FBI could find no information to support the hijack threat; nor could it verify any arrests like those described in the report.The FAA alert at the NewYork area airports ended on January 31, 1999.113


So not new. Just new to me.
