What’s In A Name? FBI Says The Nineteen 9/11 Hijackers Used Their Real Names!

On September 21, 2001 FBI Director Robert Mueller announced that some of the 9/11 hijackers may have used false identities.1 The announcement by the FBI director was in response to a rash of media reports that emerged just days after the 9/11 attacks casting doubt on the identities of several of the hijackers. The media was reporting that at least six Saudis had stepped forward claiming that their names and backgrounds had been stolen by the hijackers, and vigorously denied any involvement in the attacks.2

In the cases of two of the persons claiming to have been misidentified, Saeed Al-Ghamdi and Abdulaziz Al-Omari, personal details matching that of the hijackers included, "name, place, date of birth and occupation..."3 In the case of Al-Omari, an electrical engineer living in Saudi Arabia, he said that while he was in Denver between 1993-2000, "his apartment was broken into…and his passport and other official documents were stolen".4

On November 3, 2001 Mueller said investigators had established the true identities of all 19 of the September 11 hijackers,5 although he left out the part as to how the hijackers were positively identified. The FBI investigation affirmed that, "the names were those listed on the planes' passenger manifests and investigators were certain that those were the names the hijackers used when they entered the United States."6 After Mueller made his announcement on the positive identification of the 19 hijackers, no one in the press wanted to know how the FBI had positively identified the hijackers. The issue was dead.

Dead until 2003, that is. In an article written for Insight, Timothy W. Maier writes, "FBI spokesman Bill Carter simply brushes off as false the charges from news reports that the FBI misidentified some of the Sept. 11 terrorists. Carter says they got the names right and it does not matter whether the identities were stolen."7

FBI spokesman Carter’s reply that it does not matter whether the identities of the terrorists were stolen begs the question as to why Al Queada terrorists would use their real names. Why would Al Queada terrorists coming to the United States feel secure in using their real names? If Al Queada had been infiltrated by American or other nations’ intelligence services, then the real danger existed that the names of Al Queada members would be known and therefore placed on a watch list. Why would Al Queada not take proper precautions and issue the 19 hijackers with identities that did not include names associated with Al Queada membership?

As in so many other curious aspects surrounding the official 9/11 narrative, we are asked to accept ludicrous behaviors/assertions at face value, and not question them, such as the ‘NORAD didn’t monitor American air space on 9/11’ absurdity, or the equally absurd, and my favorite, Mohamed Atta and Abdulaziz Alomari catching a 6 a.m. flight from Portland International Jetport (Maine) on 9/11, even though in exactly two hours both Atta and Alomari are supposed to be on the ill-fated Flight 11.8 The more one delves into the official 9/11 narrative, the clearer it becomes that that narrative is a fantastical fraud.
