Update (07/23) -The oddities

Video Shows 9/11 Hijackers' Security Check

AP -July 21

WASHINGTON - Surveillance video from Washington's Dulles Airport the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, shows four of the five hijackers being pulled aside to undergo additional scrutiny after setting off metal detectors but then permitted to board the fateful flight that later crashed into the Pentagon...

The video shows an airport screener hand-checking the baggage of one hijacker, Nawaf al-Hazmi, for traces of explosives before letting him continue onto American Airlines Flight 77 with his brother, Salem, a fellow hijacker.

The disclosure of the video comes one day before the release of the final report by the Sept. 11 commission, which is expected to include a detailed accounting of the events that day.

Details in the grainy video are difficult to distinguish. But an earlier report by the commission describing activities at Dulles is consistent with the men's procession through airport security as shown on the video.

No knives or other sharp objects are visible on the surveillance video. But investigators on the commission have said the hijackers at Dulles were believed to be carrying utility knives either personally or in their luggage, which at the time could legally be carried aboard planes.

All 58 passengers — including the hijackers — and six crew members, along with 125 employees at the Pentagon, died when the flight crashed into the Pentagon at 9:39 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2001.

The video shows hijackers Khalid al-Mihdhar and Majed Moqed, each dressed conservatively in slacks and collared shirts, setting off metal-detectors as they pass through security. Moqed set off a second alarm, and a screener manually checked him with a handheld metal detector.

The pair were known to travel together previously and had paid cash to purchase their tickets aboard Flight 77 on Sept. 5, 2001, at the American Airlines counter at Baltimore's airport.

Al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi had been known to be associated with al-Qaida since early 1999 by the National Security Agency, and were put on a terrorism watch list on Aug. 24, 2001.

Only Hani Hanjour, believed to have been the hijacker who piloted Flight 77, did not set off a metal detector as he passed through Dulles security that morning, according to the video.

Moments after Hanjour passed alone through the security checkpoint, wearing dark slacks and a short-sleeved shirt, the final two hijackers, the al-Hazmi brothers, walked through the checkpoint.

Nawaf al-Hazmi, described by investigators as the right-hand accomplice of hijacker-planner Mohammed Atta, set off two metal-detectors, and a screener manually checked him with a handheld device.

Nawaf and his brother, each wearing slacks and Oxford shirts, were directed to a nearby counter, where they appeared to examine their tickets while another screener checked Nawaf's carryon bag with an explosive trace detector. Each was cleared to board Flight 77.

The Associated Press obtained the video from the Motley Rice law firm, which is representing some survivors' families who are suing the airlines and security industry over their actions in the Sept. 11 attacks.

Dulles Video- The Oddities

  • Hani Hanjour seems not to match FBI photo

  • There is direct sunlight coming into the building, however
    the early morning shadows are missing.
    Dulles Airport is located at Latitude 38:53:27 N and Longitude
    77:00:40 W. On the morning of 11 September 2001,
    sunrise was at 06:46 AM, Noon (when the sun is at its
    highest point in the sky) was at 1:05 PM, and sunset
    was at 7:23 PM.
    This means, that the this video was filmed just 32 minutes
    after "the upper edge of the Sun is on the horizon" at
    sunrise, but one can see clearly a footprint size shadow underneath one cab.

    Some argue, that what you are seeing in the background is the light from the full-spectrum bulbs outside the screening area.
    But you see also direct sunlight coming in.

  • Some of the passengers did not match the victim photo databases.

  • Two of the "identified" suspects turned out to be alive

  • The two men accused of being terrorists are Salem Al-Hamzi and Ahmed Al-Nami.

    Right after Al-Hamzi had just returned to work at a petrochemical complex in the industrial eastern city of Yanbou after a holiday in Saudi Arabia when the hijackers struck.

  • Khalid Almidhar with many faces

  • According to the BBC, there are "suggestions that another suspect, Khalid Al Midhar, may also be alive"

  • The names of the hijackers were not on any flight manifests

  • The size of the original engine does not match

  • The size of the original engine, one of the only parts, found "outside" the Pentagon, does not match Rolls Royce Engines Model: RB211-535E4B
    Noone also explained, what happened with the second engine.

  • Conflicting reports on Hanhi Hanjour and the metal detector

  • According to the latest AP Report, "only Hani Hanjour, believed to have been the hijacker who piloted Flight 77, passed through Dulles security that morning WITHOUT BEING SUBJECTED TO A SECONDARY SECURITY CHECK, according to the video."

    According to Nick Fielding, one version claims, that "this person goes through the metal detection machine and IT STARTS BUZZING........."
    "THEY CALL THE PERSON OUT SO THEY CAN DO THE HAND SEARCH. Just as the person was BEGINNING to do that, a pretty woman walks by and the guard looks at her and waves the guy on.

    Well,that person happened to be Hani Hanjour, and he basically had box cutters and razor blades in his pockets."

    This is the testimony of Vincent Cannistraro(Ex-C.I.A).
    The above excerpt can be found in:
    Masterminds Of Terror.
    By Nick Fielding And Yosri Fouda.
    Published By Mainstream Publishing.

    The "pretty woman" is not in this video.

  • Hani Hanjour was later added to the suspect list

  • "CBC News - All 18 hijackers had plane tickets: FBI
    All 18 hijackers had plane tickets: FBI
    CBC -Sep 14, 2001

    " We have no explanation for how the FBI came up with the names of all 19 (initially 18, but they added Hani Hanjour to Flight 77 so there would be a half-plausible pilot on board) hijackers within two days." Source: GlobalResearch

  • Hani Hanjour's official teacher had been pled unguilty

  • After spending five months on remand in high-security Belmarsh prison in south east London a district judge gave Mr Raissi conditional bail as no terrorism charges had been brought, and were not likely to be brought in the near future. (Feb 2002)

    The FBI claimed, that Lotfi Raissi was Hani Hanjours teacher.
    However Raissi's judge ruled, that Raissi wasn't and both never met each other.

    Also dismissed from the official version, one Hani Hanjour was observed by Arizona FBI informant Aukai Collins (between 1996 and 2000)

  • The empty Penta lawn

  • One early photo, made BEFORE the Pentagon collapse, doesn't show any debris on the lawn.
