As big as the timeline is, it continues to rapidly grow. The 9/11 story is incredibly complicated, and I don't plan to stop until every last fact has been tracked down. I have the problem now of having too many new articles to absorb them all. If anyone would like to help me digest some of this material so more entries can be completed faster, please let me know (paulthompson22b@ I'll send you some articles to read and summarize. This will be most appreciated, and properly credited.

Also, I have an ever growing mountain of articles lacking external links. If someone is good at finding articles, I can send you plenty to find.



These Pravda articles look extremely fascinating, but they need to be found first and then translated from Russian. There are many references to them on the web, but the Pravda English archives don't have them.

Any help in finding any of the below is most appreciated. My biggest interest right now is finding out more about the alternate identities of the 9/11 hijackers. For instance, the Telegraph said:

"The FBI had published [Saeed Alghamdi's] personal details but with a photograph of somebody else, presumably a hijacker who had "stolen" his identity. CNN, however, showed a picture of the real Mr. Alghamdi." [Telegraph, 9/23/01] Another Saudi pilot, Said Hussein al-Ghamdi, whose photograph was broadcast on CNN when it portrayed him as a hijacker, is living in Tunis. [London Times, 9/20/01]

Does anyone have the CNN picture? I can't find it. I'd like to find other pictures of the hijackers that don't appear to be the same as their official FBI photos. See the article on Ziad Jarrah for some examples of these alternate pictures depicting other people that I've found. I've come across mentions of pictures in newspaper articles in the Middle East and Africa. If anyone has the texts or pictures from articles like this, I'd appreciate it. Most of the articles I'm speaking of would be in Arabic I assume, so translation would be key as well. Here are two specifically I'm very keen on finding.

I'd love to link to short video clips or get transcripts to these programs.

Subject: in an interview, Russian President Vladimir Putin says he "I ordered my intelligence to warn President Bush in the strongest terms that 25 terrorists were getting ready to attack the US, including important government buildings like the Pentagon."

The Independent [Independent, 8/13/02] reported:
"there was one brief report on CBS television before the crash that two F-16 fighters were tailing Flight 93."
Does anyone have that?

A recent Al-Jazeera video featuring interviews with Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and Ramzi Binalshibh has made a lot of news lately. Does anyone have a copy of this video and/or a transcript? HIGH PRIORITY!

Also, in April 2001 Al-Jazeera aired a tape that included a farewell message from hijacker Ahmed Alhaznawi
