•Did 9/11 hijackers have U.S. helpers?
Sept. 8: Many believe the 19 hijackers who carried out the 9/11 attacks
had accomplices inside the United States.
NBC's Lisa Myers reports on the theories.
By Lisa Myers, Jim Popkin & the NBC Investigative Unit
It's one of the most pressing questions
after the 9/11 terrorist attacks: Did the 19 hijackers have any
accomplices inside the United States? The FBI has always said "no," but
NBC News has learned that because of new information, the FBI has now
renewed its investigation of a man the 9/11 Commission said was
"perfectly suited" to help the hijackers with their mission.
Senior U.S. law enforcement
officials tell NBC News that the FBI is again actively investigating a
good friend of the 9/11 hijackers - two years after the U.S. allowed the
man to be deported to his home country.
His name is Mohdar Abdullah, a Yemeni student
who admits befriending two 9/11 hijackers - Nawaf Al-Hazmi and Khalid
al-Mihdhar - when they lived in San Diego.
NBC News has learned that the renewed FBI
investigation 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 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
"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."
No chance to quiz suspect
The 9/11 Commission says 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," Kean says.
The airport tapes were not found until after Abdullah was deported. The
grand jury subpoena for the tapes, obtained by NBC news, is dated
October 2004 [PDF link].
Some law enforcement
officials now regret deporting Abdullah. One official tells NBC he is
now "more suspicious" that Abdullah had some prior knowledge of the 9/11
But in an exclusive interview with NBC in
2004, Abdullah said the hijackers tricked him.
"They never even mentioned
they had training before," Abdullah said. "They didn't mention they have
such hatred to the United States."
Abdullah's former lawyer, Randall Hamud, tells
NBC that his client never knew the hijackers were here to harm the U.S.
He says that the FBI has thoroughly investigated the case, and that the
U.S. never would have deported Abdullah to Yemen if he had been guilty
of knowingly supporting the 9/11 terrorists.
As to the LAX videotape, Hamud suggests there
may be an innocent explanation:
"The problem is that in the paranoid times today, a lot of law
enforcement people and Americans think that any Arab, Muslim, or South
Asian carrying a video camera is a terrorist up to no good," Hamud says.
"I have seen no information or evidence to indicate that Mohdar Abdullah
was anything other than an innocent victim of the two hijackers who
duped him, along with a lot of other people in the San Diego, as to why
they were here."
Law-enforcement officials tell NBC News that the
FBI is now re-examining all of Abdullah's contacts with friends and
associates in the U.S., especially anyone he's contacted since returning
to Yemen. FBI Assistant Director John Miller issued the following
statement to NBC News: "At the time of his release, the FBI did not have
sufficient evidence to charge [Mohdar Abdullah] with a crime. ICE did
not have a legal basis to hold him indefinitely. Since deporting him,
through investigation, the FBI has uncovered some additional information
but not enough on its own to bring any formal charge. We continue to
examine the contacts between the 19 hijackers and a number of persons."
Why didn't they find these tapes until
2004 isn't known - especially since the FBI knew that on the day these
tapes were shot in June 2000, one of the hijackers went to Los Angeles
Airport for a flight home to Yemen. Critics are certain to question
whether the FBI again missed an important clue, and let a possible
accomplice get away.
