9/11 Hijackers Wanted Revenge For… Chechnya

As we noted at the time, back in September 2006, Al Qaeda celebrated the fifth anniversary of 9/11 by releasing a previously unaired video of Bin Laden’s meeting and preparations with some of the hijackers.

Aljazeera, which has aired some of the video footage, provided additional information about the video’s contents — including some surprising details which our news media has ever since carefully ignored.

From Aljazeera:

Al-Qaeda video takes credit for 9/11

Friday 08 September 2006

A new videotape aired on Aljazeera television has shown Osama bin Laden and senior al-Qaeda members meeting some of the men who carried out the September 11 attacks against the US in 2001. The 90-minute video apparently shows bin Laden, the leader of al-Qaeda, taking part in the planning and preparation of the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people…

The footage, first aired on Thursday, also shows Abu Hafsa al-Masri, al-Qaeda’s then military leader, and Ramzi bin al-Shaiba, co-ordinator of the 9/11 attacks, meeting in al-Qaeda’s training camps in Taliban controlled Afghanistan. The tape also says that a previous unknown Arab Islamist, Abu al-Turab al-Urduni, supervised the training for the attacks.

The video said the preparation for the attacks included not only flight training but also lessons in street-fighting and how to forge official documents.

The video also showed two of the 19 Islamists who took part in the attacks, Saudi nationals Hamza al-Ramdi and Wael el-Shemari. The men said that their actions were inspired by an urge to avenge the suffering of Muslims in Bosnia and Chechnya.

And, never mind that, as we have previously noted, the US went to war in Bosnia to defend Muslims

Ramzi bin al-Shaiba was captured by the US in 2002. He is now reportedly being held in Guantanamo Bay. Aljazeera has aired only three minutes of the tape.

Afghanistan training camp Parts of the tape show bin Laden – wearing a dark robe and white head gear – strolling through an Afghan training camp, greeting dozens of followers, some masked, some barefaced, many carrying automatic weapons. Aljazeera said that among those he greeted in the footage were several of the 9/11 hijackers but their faces were not clear, and it was not immediately known which ones were shown.

In one scene, bin Laden addresses the camera, calling on Muslims to support the hijackers. "I ask you to pray for them and to ask God to make them successful, aim their shots well, set their feet strong and strengthen their hearts," bin Laden said.

The comments were apparently filmed before the attacks but never before released. The footage also shows scenes of training at the camp.

Perhaps this will put an end to all the talk that the Boston bombers could not possibly have had a gripe against the US. That Chechnyans are only angry at Russia.

    Oh…I finally see it now. It’s anger that’s to blame. Anger is bad. Anger pulls the trigger. Anger makes young men fly airplanes into buildings.

    Therefore we MUST outlaw anger. For, without anger, no one could ever be angry and thus, no bad things would ever happen. So don’t make people angry…don’t even become angry. That’s just the path to evil. I mean, look at your average liberal. See how un-angry they all are? See how peace-loving and happy they are? How they love to get along with everyone and look for rainbows and unicorns?

    Why….that’s the answer!

    Oh….wait.

  2. Rusty sounds angry.

    Ban Rusty now.

    What’s that old saw about Correlation and Causality?

      Been meaning to mention….my anger management coach really p*sses me off.

    • During the final days at Denver’s old Stapleton airport, a crowded United flight was canceled.

      A single agent was rebooking a long line of inconvenienced travelers. Suddenly an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket down on the counter and said, “I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS.”

      The agent replied, “I’m sorry sir. I”ll be happy to try to help you, but I’ve got to help these folks first, and I’m sure we”ll be able to work something out.”

      The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear, “Do you have any idea who I am?”
      Without hesitating, the gate agent smiled and grabbed her public address microphone. “May I have your attention please?” she began, her voice bellowing throughout the terminal. “We have a passenger here at the gate WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him find his identity, please come to the gate.”

      With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the United agent, gritted his teeth and swore “F_ _k you.”
      Without flinching, she smiled and said, “I’m sorry, sir, but you”ll have to stand in line for that, too.”

      The man retreated as the people in the terminal applauded loudly. Although the flight was canceled and people were late, they were no longer angry at United.

    oh thank you GetBackJack !!!
    now i need a new monitor.
    but while we are on the subject of Wild Turkey…

    Rusty,
    maybe this rare feel good item from our Congress will help.

    “A resolution of the U.S. Congress in 1964 declared bourbon to be a “distinctive product of the United States.” That resolution asked “the appropriate agencies of the United States Government… [to] take appropriate action to prohibit importation into the United States of whiskey designated as ‘Bourbon Whiskey.’” Federal regulation now defines “bourbon whisky” to only include “bourbon” produced in the United States.
    On August 2, 2007, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution sponsored by Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY) officially declaring September 2007 “National Bourbon Heritage Month”, marking the history of bourbon whiskey. Notably, the resolution claimed that Congress had declared bourbon to be “America’s Native Spirit” in its 1964 resolution. However, the 1964 resolution had not actually contained such a statement; it had only declared bourbon to be a distinctive product identifiable with the United States (in a similar way that Scotch is considered identifiable with Scotland). The resolution was passed again in 2008.”

    its almost patriotic !
