July 23, 2001 – Suspected Sept. 11 mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), receives a U.S. visa despite U.S. authorities chasing him since 1994 and a 1996 indictment linking him with earlier terrorist plots.

Bush says terrorists planted explosives in WTC 9/11


“Khalid Sheikh Mohammed described the design of planned attacks of buildings inside the U.S. and how operatives were directed to carry them out. That is valuable information for those of us who have the responsibility to protect the American people. He told us the operatives had been instructed to ensure that the explosives went off at a high — a point that was high enough to prevent people trapped above from escaping.”
“Another person who must know a great deal about what led up to 9/11 is Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, allegedly arrested in Rawalpindi on March 1 2003. A joint Senate-House intelligence select committee inquiry in July 2003 stated: “KSM appears to be one of Bin Laden’s most trusted lieutenants and was active in recruiting people to travel outside Afghanistan, including to the US, on behalf of Bin Laden.” According to the report, the clear implication was that they would be engaged in planning terrorist-related activities.”
Does A Military Trial For KSM Make Any Sense? – Forbes

“The CIA seized KSM in Pakistan in 2003. Waterboarded, he gave his confession. The CIA removed him to Guantanamo where he has been ever since. Following his arrest, and without waterboarding, he again confessed his responsibility for the attacks, stating he “was responsible for the 9/11 operation, from A to Z.”
“Do the right thing, President Obama: give the American people – and even Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, terrible as he may be – the court a great democracy deserves: a civilian court.”

“The 2005 memo also says that the C.I.A. used waterboarding 183 times in March 2003 against Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the self-described planner of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.”

Bojinka plot

“The Bojinka plot (Arabic: ??????; Tagalog: Oplan Bojinka) was a planned large-scale three phase Islamist attack by Ramzi Yousef and Khalid Shaikh Mohammed. The attack would involve a plot to assassinate Pope John Paul II, an air bombing of 11 airliners[1] and their approximately 4,000 passengers that would have flown from Asia to the United States, and Murad’s proposal to crash a plane into the CIA’s headquarters in Fairfax County, Virginia, in addition to the plan to bomb multiple aeroplanes.[2]

The term also refers to a combination of plots by Yousef and Mohammed to take place in January 1995, Despite careful planning and the skill of Ramzi Yousef, the Bojinka plot was disrupted after a chemical fire drew the Philippine National Police’s (PNP) attention on January 6 and January 7, 1995. Yousef set off test bombs in a mall and theater, injuring scores of people, and one person was killed in the course of the plot — a passenger seated near a nitroglycerin bomb on Philippine Airlines Flight 434, which could have caused enough damage to lose the entire plane. The money handed down to the plotters originated from al-Qaeda.”
I posted the “Bojinka Plot” because the plot was thwarted in 1995 when the “terrorists” accidently started a fire in the apartment.

“A report from the Philippines to the United States on January 20, 1995 stated, “What the subject has in his mind is that he will board any American commercial aircraft pretending to be an ordinary passenger. Then he will hijack said aircraft, control its cockpit and dive it at the CIA headquarters.”


AP Exclusive: The CIA and a secret vacuum cleaner

“WASHINGTON (AP) — Confined to the basement of a CIA secret prison in Romania about a decade ago, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the admitted mastermind of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, asked his jailers whether he could embark on an unusual project: Would the spy agency allow Mohammed, who had earned his bachelor’s in mechanical engineering, to design a vacuum cleaner?”
