New FBI Report Indicates Sam Mustafa and Mohdar Abdullah Support of 9/11 Hijackers in San Diego Was Still Topic of Discussion and FBI Offered Sam Mustafa a Deal in 2012.


According to the NYC FBI report, federal authorities in Tampa offered Osama Sam Mustafa a deal on Sept. 17, 2012, Mustafa was out on bail due to his indictment and arrest for stealing $17.8 million from the IRS in a check cash scam in Tampa and Roanoke VA.. During the Tampa FBI proffer/offer [Mustafa] echoed [a] previous statement he had, made, denying any knowledge of the hijackers’ terrorist affiliation and providing no additional details of use to investigators. [Mustafa] seemed optimistic about the charges he was facing in Federal Court in Roanoke VA. [Redacted] investigators had anticipated future proffer/offer sessions with [Mustafa] on the [Redacted] national security issues.” On September 24th, 2012 FBI Agents in New York City considered potential charges for Osama ‘Sam’ Mustafa for providing ‘Material Support’ to the 9/11 hijackers while in San Diego CA. During the week of September 28th 2012, Mustafa was proffered/offered the deal a second time, there was no National Security related information disclosed during the second proffer/offer to Osama Sam Mustafa. Before Mustafa was convicted and sentenced to 20 years on the IRS check scam in Roanoke VA he cut off his monitoring ankle bracelet and fled the USA on August 28th 2013, he is now being pursued by the US Marshals Service and the FBI. I received an email from Mustafa on December 16th, 2016 indicating he was in Amman Jordan and taunting the FBI and Federal prosecutor Joseph Mott. 


'SAM STAR MART TEXACO' employee Mohdar Abdullah, whose given name is Al-Mohdar Mohamed Al-Mohdar Zeid was assigned the task of helping facilitate 9/11 hijack terrorists Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar after they arrived in Los Angels in January 2000 by Omar AlBayoumi. Mohdar Abdullah drove from San Diego to Los Angeles to pick up Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdharand returned with them to San Diego. Mohdar Abdullah a student from Yemen was working at Osama Sam Mustafa's 'SAM STAR MART TEXACO' gas station in La Mesa a suburb of San Diego with Omer Bakarbashat and eventually 9/11 hijack terrorist Nawaf al-Hazmi would also work at Osama Sam Mustafa's 'SAM STAR MART TEXACO' gas station. Omer Bakarbashat was a young Saudi who lived in the same apartment building as Mohdar Abdullah. Omer Bakarbashat viewed Anwar al-Awlaki as “almost a god,” according to an FBI agent. Mohdar Abdullah, Osama Awadallah, and Omer Bakarbashat were all present at a meeting at Sam’s Star Texaco station in La Mesa on the morning of September 10th, 2001 saying “It’s finally going to happen“. Omer Bakarbashat and Nawaf Al-Hazmi shared the same address 8451 Mount Vernon Ave Lemon Grove CA, the address on Nawaf Al-Hazmi's car registration. The 9/11 Congressional Inquiry will later strongly imply that Osama Sam Mustafa assisted the hijackers with the 9/11 plot, but the FBI will appear uninterested and will maintain that the hijackers received no assistance from anyone, nonsense.


NBC News has learned that a renewed FBI investigation into 'SAM STAR MART TEXACO' employee Mohdar Abdullah was triggered, in part, by surveillance videotapes from inside the Los Angeles Airport shot in June 2000 — a year before 9/11. Law enforcement officials tell NBC the grainy tapes show terrorist Nawaf al-Hazmi with Mohdar Abdullah and an unidentified man. Sources say the men appear to be scouting out the airport. Some FBI agents believe that one of the men may be holding a video camera and rotates in a circle while secretly videotaping near the security area. "This is very consistent with what the hijackers did," says 9/11 Commission former co-chair Tom Kean, adding, "if he's on tape here with the hijackers, then this is something that should really be investigated further." The 9/11 Commission says Mohdar Abdullah had extremist sympathies, helped the two hijackers get drivers licenses and flight training and, after 9/11, "expressed hatred for the U.S. government." But before the 9/11 Commission could question him, the U.S. deported him. "He should not have been let out of the country when the 9/11 commission wanted to interview him." Mohdar Abdullah, whose given name is Al-Mohdar Mohamed Al-Mohdar Zeid, told the officer he had entered the United States on Dec. 7, 1998, in New York on an Italian passport. In truth, he entered three days later from Canada on a Yemeni passport. Mohdar Abdullah allegedly told the hijackers how to get Social Security cards and California driver's licenses. He also telephoned a flight school in Florida to arrange for flight lessons and "regularly dined, worked and prayed with the hijackers," prosecutors asserted. Mohdar Abdullah remained illegally in the United States "in order to help the ... hijackers and/or any future hijackers in the furtherance of terrorist activities against people in the United States," FBI Agent Daniel Gonzalez said in a seven-page statement.

Mohdar Abdullah worked at the Sam’s Star Texaco station in La Mesa owned by Sam Mustafa. 9/11 hijacker Nawaf Alhazmi also works at Sam’s Star Texaco station while living in San Diego where other suspected Islamist militants work. This is the only apparent instance of any of the hijackers having a job while in the US. He and 9/11 hijacker Khalid Al-Mihdhar frequently socialize at the gas station, but only Al-Hazmi works there for pay on and off for about a month at some point after Al-Mihdhar has gone overseas in June 2000.When interviewed by the FBI after 9/11, Mohdar Abdullah denied having advance knowledge of attacks. In May 2004, it was learned from reports about Mohdar Abdullah bragging to fellow inmates at a California prison in September- October 2003 that he had known Hazmi and Mihdhar were planning a terrorist attack. According to one inmate, Mohdar Abdullah claimed an unnamed individual had notified him that Hazmi and Mihdhar would be arriving in Los Angeles with plans to carry out an attack. Mohdar Abdullah allegedly told the same inmate that he had driven the two al Qaeda operatives from Los Angeles to San Diego. According to a inmate, Mohdar Abdullah also claimed to have found out about the 9/11 attacks three weeks in advance, a claim that appears to dovetail with evidence that Abdullah may have received a phone call from Nawaf al-Hazmi around that time, that he stopped making calls from his telephone after August 25, 2001, and that, according to his friends, he started acting strangely. Mohdar Abdullah will admit to the FBI that he knew of the hijackers’ extremist beliefs and that he was involved in the Islamic Army of Aden, a militant group in Yemen with al-Qaeda ties.

Evidence further indicates that an additional source of Saudi government funding used to support the activities of Hazmi and Mihdhar while in the United States came by way of Bayoumi’s relationship with Osama Yousef Basnan, another agent of the Saudi government. Basnan, known as a vocal Al Qaeda sympathizer and further described by U.S. intelligence as an “ardent UBL [Osama bin Laden] supporter” who “has been in contact with UBL family members,” was a target of FBI investigations as early as 1992. In May of that year, the State Department provided the FBI with a box of documents recovered from a parked car that was abandoned on Wisconsin Avenue near the residence of then Secretary of State, James A.Baker. The car, belonging to Basnan’s used car business in Alexandria, VA, had been parked there by Basnan while allegedly visiting a friend’s nearby clothing business. The documents, consisting of jihadist literature, included a “Confidential” newsletter written in Arabic to supporters of the Eritrean Islamic Jihad (EIJ) Movement, providing updates on the EIJ’s council. A high level EIJ member reportedly sat on Al Qaeda’s Shura Council. The documents also included a number of letters addressed to Basnan outlining plans to import used cars to the United States (although after Iraq invasion the export of cars to Middle East was the hot deal by Muslim used car dealers in USA). That same year, on October 17, 1992, Basnan hosted a party in Washington D.C. for Omar Abdul Rahman (a/k/a the “Blind Sheikh”) who is currently serving a life sentence following his conviction for his role in supporting the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and for plotting a “day of terror” in which he planned to attack the United Nations in New York City, bomb the Holland and Lincoln tunnels, and assassinate then-Senator Alfonse D’Amato.

The mystery begins with the arrival at Los Angeles International Airport on Jan. 15, 2000, of two Saudi men who more than year and a half later would be among the hijackers who crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon. Apart from their proven devotion to the jihadi cause, the men Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar seemed unlikely choices for a pair of terrorists who would have to survive, and plot for months, in the United States. Neither spoke English or had experience navigating American life. With the 9/11 plot riding on the hijackers' ability to manage daily life, he said, al-Qaida leaders would most likely have made arrangements to get them help. "I have to believe something was planned for the care and nurturing of these guys after they arrived." "They weren't too sophisticated, and they didn't speak English. They needed help getting settled and making preparations, said Richard Lambert, the former FBI official in San Diego." Al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar began worshipping at a San Diego mosque where the imam was Anwar al-Awlaki, an American cleric who years later would became an infamous online recruiter for al-Qaida. A Yemeni student named Mohdar Abdullah drove them around, he picked them up in LA and drove them to San Diego, helped them open bank accounts and connected them with flight schools.

OSAMA MUSTAFA KNEW ABOUT 9/11 PLOT: Osama “Sam” Mustafa denied all, he lied, Osama “Sam” Mustafa was in on the 9/11 attacks. In the year 2000 Al-Qaeda hijacker Nawaf Alhazmi works at Osama Sam Mustafa's SAM STAR MART TEXACO gas station, while living in San Diego for 6 months, where other suspected Islamist militants work. The Texaco gas station, Sam’s Star Mart, is owned by Osama “Sam” Mustafa. Osama Mustafa was first investigated by the FBI in 1991 after he told a police officer that the US needed another Pan Am 103 attack and that he could be the one to carry out the attack. He also said all Americans should be killed because of the 1991 Iraq War. In 1994, Osama Sam Mustafa was investigated for being a member of the Palestinian organizations PFLP and PLO and for threatening to kill an Israeli intelligence officer living in San Diego. The investigation was closed, but reopened again in 1997 when he was tied to a possible plot in North Carolina. Apparently, it was closed again before 9/11. He also associates with Osama Basnan and others who have contacts with the hijackers.

Mohdar Abdullah, a former San Diego State student and material witness in the 9/11 terror investigation, was quietly deported to Yemen in 2004 after spending almost three years in New York and San Diego County jails. Abdullah and his friend and former cellmate, Omar Bakarbashat, were among the first Muslim immigrants in the nation to be detained after Sept. 11, 2001, and are two of the last to be released. Bakarbashat was deported to Yemen on Oct. 24, 2004. Abdullah acknowledged that he had lied to an immigration officer. Abdullah told the officer he had entered the United States on Dec. 7, 1998, in New York on an Italian passport. Abdullah, 26, and Bakarbashat, 31, both college students, were arrested immediately after the attacks and taken to New York to testify before a federal grand jury. YEMEN REFUSED TO TAKE HIM BACK: "Mohdar Abdullah had been initially identified as a close associate of two of the deceased 9/11 hijackers from San Diego, Nawaf Alhazmi and Khalid al-Midhar," Mack said. Abdullah's lawyer, Randall B. Hamud, said the government of Yemen twice refused to admit Abdullah, and agreed to accept him only because of intense pressure from the U.S. State Department. Two federal agents escorted him on the flight to the Middle East.  Abdullah, whose given name is Al-Mohdar Mohamed Al-Mohdar Zeid, was never charged with crimes related to the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, but he faced suspicion because of his relationship with the San Diego-linked hijackers Nawaf Alhazmi, Khalid al-Midhar and Hani Hanjour. 

The three were aboard the American Airlines plane that crashed into the Pentagon. Officials said in court documents that Abdullah regularly dined with, prayed with and helped Alhazmi and al-Midhar with interpreting, computer use and other tasks. He also helped them find employment at Osama Sam Mustafa's SAM STAR MART TEXACO and places to live, authorities said. Mohdar Abdullah helped the 9/11 hijackers obtain Social Security cards, driver licenses, flight school information and rides from Los Angeles International Airport. Mohdar Abdullah worked with Alhazmi and with other material witnesses at Osama Sam Mustafa's SAM STAR MART TEXACO gas station in La Mesa CA near San Diego. Additionally, according to one witness, Abdullah, Omar Bakarbashat, and other Osama Sam Mustafa's SAM STAR MART TEXACO gas station employees including Osama Sam Mustafa will appear to show foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks one day before they take place. 

FLORIDA BULLDOG NEWS: As late as October 2012, federal prosecutors and FBI agents in New York City were actively exploring filing charges against a suspect for providing material support to the 9/11 hijackers and other crimes. The suspect’s identity and many details of the New York investigation are blanked out of a FBI summary report that discusses “Updates and Initiatives (as of 5 October 2012)” about 9/11. The document was released to Florida Bulldog amid ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) litigation that seeks access to records of the 9/11 Review Commission.The 2012 FBI report contains several bullet points about individuals with ties to 9/11 hijack Saudi terrorists Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar. All of the names are redacted, but one name is discernible from the available information: former Tampa resident Osama “Sam” Mustafa. Prior to 9/11 Mustafa owned a gas station in a suburb of San Diego where future hijacker Hazmi worked for about a month in the fall of 2000. Mustafa previously had been the subject of an FBI counterterrorism investigation that yielded no evidence of criminal conduct, according to the 9/11 Commission’s final report. The 2012 FBI report recounts Mustafa’s May 15, 2012 arrest in Tampa for Treasury check fraud filed by a U.S. Attorney in Virginia. Court records say the case involved a $17 million tax-refund fraud scheme, and that Mustafa was found guilty in April 2013. Four months later, while out on bond, Mustafa cut of a ankle monitoring bracelet and vanished.

In June 2014, Mustafa was sentenced in absentia to 20 years in prison. He remains a fugitive. Tampa man denied knowledge of terrorism. According to the report, federal authorities in Tampa had offered Mustafa a deal on Sept. 17, 2012. “During the proffer [Mustafa] echoed [a] previous statement he had made, denying any knowledge of the hijackers’ terrorist affiliation and providing no additional details of use to investigators. [Mustafa] seemed optimistic about the charges he was facing. [Redacted] investigators anticipate future proffer sessions with [Mustafa] on the [Redacted] national security issues.” The 2012 FBI report takes a longer look at Mohdar Abdullah, who “played a key role facilitating the daily lives and assisting future Flight 77 hijackers.” His story is recounted in a section of the report titled “Details on Mohdar Abdullah and his connection [redacted].” National security is cited for that redaction, and for much of the first couple of sentences in the section. Also removed from the report are several sentences detailing “the immediate goal of” investigating Abdullah, whom the 9/11 Commission Report previously said worked at the gas station where Hazmi was employed. According to the 9/11 Commission, Abdullah was a Yemeni student in his early 20s who was “fluent in both Arabic and English,” sympathetic to extremist views “and was perfectly suited to assist the hijackers in pursuing their mission.” When FBI agents searched his possessions after the attacks, they found a notebook “belonging to someone else with references to planes falling from the sky, mass killing and hijacking,’’ the 9/11 Commission report says. Abdullah was detained as a material witness and later “he expressed hatred for the U.S. government and ‘stated that the U.S. brought ‘this’ on themselves.’  


Newly declassified information in the 2012 FBI report says that shortly after Feb. 4, 2000, Abdullah was one of two individuals tasked by Bayoumi to assist the two future hijackers. A partially censored sentence then says, “Anwar Aulaqi and they may have spent time together with the hijackers.” Aulaqi, also known as Anwar al-Awlaki, was an American who was imam of the Masjid Ar-Ribat al-Islami mosque in San Diego, where Hazmi and Mihdhar worshipped. U.S. officials later identified him an al Qaeda recruiter who helped plan terrorist operations. Aulaqi was killed in Yemen in September 2011 by a U.S. Hellfire missile drone strike. The 2012 FBI report says, “After September 11, 2001 Mohdar (Abdullah) was investigated by the FBI for assisting the hijackers. On September 19, 2001 he was arrested by FBI San Diego on charges of immigration fraud for his claim of being a Somali asylee (Mohdar is Yemeni.) Mohdar pled guilty to the immigration charges and was deported to Yemen in 2004. “While Mohdar was detained in an immigration facility he bragged to two fellow inmates that he assisted the hijackers. The FBI and the SDNY have debriefed these individuals. Both are cooperative, but there is some prosecutorial concern about their value as witnesses,” the report says. Much of the rest of the section about Mohdar Abdullah is blanked out citing a FOIA exemption that protects confidential sources and personal privacy. The 2012 FBI report was among about 200 pages of 9/11 Review Commission records recently released to Florida Bulldog. On Nov. 30, the Bulldog reported that records showed agents investigating 9/11 did not obtain security records from a Sarasota-area gated community containing alleged evidence that the hijackers had visited the residence of a Saudi family with ties to the royal family. Most of the two-page report was censored for national security and other reasons, except for this sentence, “None of this identifies new participants in the 9/11 attacks but hardens the existing known connections to the plot.”
