Al-Jazeera Airs New Footage of Osama Planning 9/11
While ABC airs a phony documentary labelled a dramatization, Al-Jazeera airs real, previously unreleased footage -- 90 minutes worth-- of Osama bin Laden meeting with the 9/11 hijackers in the days before the attacks.
The footage, first aired on Thursday, also shows Abu Hafs 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 that the preparation for the attacks included not only flight training but also lessons in street-fighting and how to forge official documents.
The video shows Osama meeting with Ramzi Binalshibh, as well as footage of two of the hijackers, Hamza el-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.
I haven't found the video online, if you have, let us know where.
