    Atta and Al-Shehhi applied for flight training at Eagle Jet International Sarasota Fl.

    Note that the same person filled out the Eagle Jet applications for both Atta and Al-Shehhi. It is the same handwriting as on the application for Atta’s visa extension in June 2001.

    Note the word “Commercial.” Note that in one form the writer uses one stroke to make “Commercial” — minutes apart he uses 3 strokes.

    Thus, to suggest that the writer of Atta’s visa application and these Eagle Jet applications can be excluded because 3 strokes were made to write the ones in the Fall 2001 anthrax letters is not at all compelling.

    When writing a letter intended to kill recipient one can be expected to show some deliberateness.

    Indeed, Atta sometimes put a fancy cap on his ones — such as the fancy one in the date “1968” when he writes the featured graphic above.

    Old Atlantic has brilliantly pointed out that there is no “can not” in German and that in terms of psycholinguistics it is suggestion the writer may have studied in Germany. I just went to the wedding party a couple weeks ago of a friend who is German and has returned there after years of living in the states. He confirms:

    “Hi …,

    there is no cannot in German. “kann nicht” ist the direct translation for can not / cannot.

    Hope that helps!

    Best,
    M”

    In short, the handwriting (see visa below and handwriting opinion of the Questioned Document Unit being withheld from the public), the dashes, the formalized one, and the “can not” all pointed consistently to Atta as the author, who was filmed on September 7, 2001 copying at Maryland KINKOS, whose paper matches the paper forensically, and who next day sent back a few thousand to KSM’s assistant who was helping the hijackers and had the anthrax spraydrying documents on his laptop.

    A few days later Atta would be famously heard to say “We have some planes…” But the hijackers couldn’t have been jihadis, could they? Because we “we have some planes” just sounds how a hijacker trying to be scary is supposed to talk.

    The FBI in October 2001 knew that it had released Jdey (with his bio books matching Moussaoui’s crop-duster books) but kept that secret from the American public.

    Amerithrax represents the greatest intelligence failure in the history of the United States.

    Oh, did I mention Ali Al-TImimi spoke on the phone that month with Bin Laden’s sheik about helping with Moussaoui’s defense? He had been the White House chief of staff Card’s former assistant, worked on classified work for the Navy, and the daughter of the lead prosecutor of Amerithrax represented him for free. He shared a suite with the leading Ames researchers funded by DARPA.

    When Dr. Ayman launches a mass attack, it will be the fault of all those who didn’t try harder — didn’t do better.

      Hawsawi — Atta’s contact and the one with the anthrax spraydrying documents — was the financial manager on Bin Laden’s farm in Sudan.

      Mahjoub was its manager.

      Mahjoub was the Egyptian Islamic Jihad / Vanguards of Conquest #2. He was detained in Canada.

      In response to the announcement of his bail hearing in January 2001, EIJ threatened to use anthrax if he his bail was denied. (Detention was senior EIJ leaders had been announced in Spring 1999 to be the reason for Dr. Ayman’s development of anthrax as a weapon to use against US targets). See Montasser Al-Zayat, Mabruk and Najjar pronouncements. That was the motive before Rauf was first enlisted to help obtain virulent Ames and attend the Porton Down conferences on anthrax and Ames.

      Mahjoub’s bail was denied on October 5.

      The anthrax mailer then dropped what he was doing and rushed to send the real deal to the senators in charge of appropriations to Egypt and Israel.

      If Rachel had not caused relevant information to mischaracterized and withheld, an Ivins Theory would never have gathered support among those that it did.
