Mohammed Atta wasn’t “core Al Qaeda” either

9-11-anniversary

The Obama regime has made much of the assertion that “Core Al Qaeda” was not part of the Benghazi attacks on September 11, 2012.

The State Department confirmed Wednesday that two Libyan groups reportedly set to be designated as terrorists took part in the Benghazi 9-11 anniversary attacks of 2012. But the Obama administration insists there is no evidence linking the attack to al Qaeda’s central leadership.

Speaking to reporters Wednesday, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki chose her words carefully saying the branches of Ansar al-Sharia, a militia that claimed credit for the Benghazi attack in the first hours after the incident on social media were not “official affiliates” of al Qaeda.

Mohammed Atta was one of, if not, the ringleader of the 9-11 attacks. He wasn’t “core Al Qaeda” either.

Mohamed Atta (September 1, 1968 – September 11, 2001) was an Egyptian Islamist terrorist and a known associate of the al-Qaeda terrorist organization. Atta was the ringleader of the 19 hijackers in the September 11 attacks, and was at the controls of American Airlines Flight 11 which was the first plane to strike the World Trade Center.

No sir, he only trained at an Al Qaeda camp:

German investigators said that they had evidence that Mohamed Atta trained at al-Qaeda camps in Afghanistan from late 1999 to early 2000. The timing of the Afghanistan training was outlined on August 23, 2002 by a senior investigator. The investigator, Klaus Ulrich Kersten, director of Germany’s federal anticrime agency, the Bundeskriminalamt, provided the first official confirmation that Atta and two other pilots had been in Afghanistan and the first dates of the training. Kersten said in an interview at the agency’s headquarters in Wiesbaden, Germany, that Atta was in Afghanistan from late 1999 until early 2000,[50][51] and evidence that Atta met with Osama bin Laden while there.[52]

Trained at an Al Qaeda camp? You mean like Sufian bin Qumu- one of the Benghazi attackers who also trained at an Al Qaeda camp?

The ringleader of the 9-11 attacks wasn’t “core Al Qaeda.” I guess that makes everything better.

    Thanks for this, DrJohn.
    According to Obama’s WH parsing no one is left in core al Qaeda.
    His re-election motif that ”al Qaeda is on the run,” is true.
    He ”won.”
    I guess we should all fold up our tents and go home.
    Problem solved.
    LOL!

    Not to counter the main thrust of Dr. John’s post, it has been reported in other sources that prior to 9/11 (I think as early as 1999), Atta and Jarrah had pledged bayat to OBL.

    To add and support Doc’s post, KSM didn’t swear bayat to OBL until after 9/11. Abu Zubaydah is claimed not to have been a member of al Qaeda. Zarqawi was not an original “core member” of al Qaeda. Yet clearly these guys are essentially “al Qaeda”; either that, or the distinction isn’t that important. They’re Islamic terrorists, bottomline; and at war with the U.S.

    Since the beginning, we and the civilized world have been engaged in a war with a global jihad movement. al Qaeda is just “the Base”. When you look at news reports of the last decade, many terror attacks are attributed to “affiliates” or those with “ties” to al Qaeda. It’s always been the case. That’s why the enemy should be more properly identified as “the al Qaeda network“; or “al Qaeda and affiliates“. It isn’t just one terror organization.

    When you look back at OBL’s 1998 fatwa, it wasn’t signed by just him and his group; but also by 4 others, including Zawahiri (before his EIJ merged with OBL’s group, becoming 2/3rds of the al Qaeda leadership). They were all lumped under the name, “World Islamic Front for Jihad Against Jews and Crusaders”. That one doesn’t quite roll off the tongue as smoothly as “al Qaeda”. 😉 World Islamic Front = al Qaeda, in essence. A rose by any other name, and all that. These terror groups have shared interests (sometimes competing), crossover training and funding; and the boundaries become murky between one Islamic terror group from the next.

    So I never get why some people think it’s just “al Qaeda”; or the war is over and won once OBL and Zawahiri are “brought to justice”.


    “Our war on terror begins with al Qaeda, but it does not end there. It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated.”

    AND THE AMERICANS, those TERRORIST primary name is
    SCUM to be dealt with as it ,and would downsize them

    Funny how many of Atta’s team members seem to have survived their 911 flights and have spoken up since then…. just 1 of the thousands of 911 anomalies.

    Not ”core” al Qaeda BUT he almost killed 750 people in Seattle:
    http://slog.thestranger.com/slog/archives/2014/02/01/police-make-arrest-in-neighbours-arson-case

    Seattle police arrested Musab Mohamed Masmari this morning in association with the New Year’s Eve arson at Neighbours nightclub, says Detective Mark Jamieson.

    The Seattle Police Department’s Arson/Bomb Squad had been working with a joint terrorism task force since the incident occurred in the early minutes of January 1, when someone poured gasoline down a flight of stairs in the packed gay bar and lit it ablaze. All 750 patrons escaped without injury.

    Thank goodness the nightclub had operating emergency exits.
    Not too much coverage, huh?
    I bet there would have been if he’d been an evangelical Christian. 😉

    this is awful, those need to be round up and burned,
    just like what they wanted to do to other,
    and their attack should be name as succeeded,
    because they would have succeeded if the people would have not react to it,
    so consider their intent as guilty of doing it,
