Al-Qaeda operatives linked to and/or inspired by Muslim Imam Clerics Anwar al-Awlaki and Muneer Arafat got us on 9/11 and at Ford Hood and the Boston Marathon now it is time for payback for their support network. Was there a support network in the USA for the 9/11 Hijackers prior to the attacks on September 11th, 2001, well, from my research and investigation starting with local law enforcement in Sarasota Fl in June of 2002, I would say absolutely yes there was. In June of 2002 I became involved in a joint task force investigation of several Muslim males in the Sarasota-Tampa Fl area and Muneer Arafat the Imam at the Islamic Center of Sarasota Bradenton 4350 N. Lockwood Ridge Rd Sarasota Fl, my involvement ended in April 2005.
The joint task force that I was involved with was headed up by the Bureau of Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Bradenton and Tampa, US Customs Tampa Port, Sarasota Police Intel Department, Sarasota Sheriff Intel Department and the FBI office in Sarasota and Tampa. I reported directly to the Sarasota Police Intel Department and Sarasota Sheriff Intel Department from June/2002 to April/2005. The Sarasota Herald Tribune and Broward Bulldog and several other media outlets are now trying to obtain FBI agency documents from that time period.
Broward Bulldog Online News, along with Irish journalist Anthony Summers, has requested national security officials to declassify the 28 pages on Saudi financing for 9/11 that was censored from the lengthy report by the Congressional Joint Committee on 9/11. Their request is now in the hands of the Declassification Review Board, a federal task force that advises President Barack Obama. Former Sen. Bob Graham co-chaired the 9/11 committee, and has been conducting his own crusade to get the censored documents declassified. Southwest Florida (Sarasota) was the site where a group of the 9/11 hijackers trained before the attack. Mohamed Atta and his companion, Marwan al-Shehhi, had learned to fly small airplanes at Huffman Aviation, a flight school at Venice Municipal Airport (and also at Jones Aviation in Sarasota).
A block away, at Florida Flight Training, accomplice Ziad Jarrah also took flying lessons. Agents linked together phone calls with the Prestancia residents dating back more than a year “and found they lined up with the known suspects,” the Bulldog has reported. The phone links were not only to Atta and his fellow pilots but to 11 other terrorist suspects, the Bulldog reported. One was Adnan Shukrijumah, still on the FBI's “Most Wanted” list for an attempted attack on New York's subway system. “The real question is whether they found out too much, that they found there was a Saudi network existing in Sarasota,” said Julin, the Bulldog's attorney, “and that it was pulled out by the Saudi government before the attacks on the United States.” see http://www.heraldtribune.com/article/20140331/ARTICLE/140339933/0/FRONTPAGE?p=3&tc=pg

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. 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.
Agents linked together phone calls with the Prestancia residents dating back more than a year “and found they lined up with the known suspects,” the Bulldog has reported.
Sarasota Cell phone store owner Wissam Hammoud appears to have knowledge of terrorist activity prior to 9/11. Terrorist ringleader Mohamed Atta used a Verizon cell phone with a Sarasota cell phone number 941-685-0468, purchased and later serviced in Sarasota. Mohamed Atta and Ziad Jarrah were 2 of the 9/11 hijackers who purchased a vehicle in the USA. In mid-September 2000, Mohamed Atta and Marwan Shehhi applied to change their immigration status from tourist to student, stating their intention to study at Huffman until September 1st, 2001. In late September 2000, Mohamed Atta and Marwan Shehhi 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 Venice Fl.
Mohamed Atta used a Verizon cell phone with a Sarasota cell phone number 941-685-0468. 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. Ziad Jarrah’s name appears on a lease agreement for Falls of Venice, apt. 106, 1001 Center Rd, Venice, Fl.
The phone links were not only to Atta and his fellow pilots but to 11 other terrorist suspects, the Bulldog reported. One was Adnan Shukrijumah, still on the FBI's “Most Wanted” list for an attempted attack on New York's subway system.
“The real question is whether they found out too much, that they found there was a Saudi network existing in Sarasota,” said Julin, the Bulldog's attorney, “and that it was pulled out by the Saudi government before the attacks on the United States.”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 satellite 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 interviews and 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.
