The following is from CNN's latest dispatch on attempts to find the "culprits" in
9/14/01, quoted as
" (CNN) -- CNN has learned from
federal law enforcement sources the
names used by 18 hijackers who
authorities believe commandeered
four commercial airliners on Tuesday
in a coordinated attack on two renowned
symbols of American power.
The suspected hijackers aboard American Airlines Flight 11, which hit
the north tower of the World Trade Center, were Walid Al Shehri, Wail
Alsheri aka Waleed Alsheri, Mohammad Atta, Aabdul Alomari and Satam
Aboard United Airlines Flight 175, which hit the south tower of the World Trade
Center, the suspected hijackers were Marawn Alshehhi, Fayez Ahmed, Mohald
Alshehri, Hamza Al Ghamdi and Ahmed Al Ghamdi.
Those believed to be the hijackers aboard American Airlines Flight 77, which hit
the Pentagon, were Khalid Almihdhar, Majed Moqued, Nawaf Al Hazmi and
Salem Al Hazmi.
The suspected hijackers aboard United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in rural
Pennsylvania, were Ahmed Al Haznawi, Ahmed Alnami, Ziad Jarrah and Saeed
Spellings are as they appear on federal documents and may vary from other
Okay, so does that mean that the spellings are wrong, or are all the names just plain
ficticious, like their use of 1991 footage, or the initial fabricated footage of so-called "Kosovo
refugees" (now revealed to be NATO ops just relocating civilians for cameras)
that was broadcast as a precursor to our involvement in the Bosnia conflict. It has
been documented that CNN has in the past had military ops on their news bureau both
during the Gulf War and Yugoslavia. I think most Americans would begin to question their
I would urge those who post apparent revelations regarding journalistic foulplay (eg- CNN's deliberate use of false documentary footage) to be as thorough as possible. If the Independent Media Center is to be perceived as an end-in-itself and not simply an electronic tipsheet for "more serious journalists", a greater sense of rigor is vital. A true "alternative" to mainstream media has to be credible, rigorous and intelligent as well as independent.
The documentation of the CNN news distortions is available on this site's
"webcast news "and at www.counterpunch.org (including the past story
about military psych ops during the Gulf War, provided by Alex Cockburn).
Actually I can't find anything other than a copy of the original assertion at Counter Punch. There is the implication that a web cast exists? Can someone verify? Please e-mail me with information. The 'web cast' page from this site does not contain anything on CNN as far as I could tell. Of course a copy of the CNN footage not date stamped doesn't offer much by the way of proof but I will be curious to know what we have by way of verification.
