9/11: Al-Qaeda Didn't Act Alone

(Telegraph -- UK) Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan - The Iran connection to 9/11 is spelled out in a document filed by American attorneys working on a civil action known as the Havlish case. Fiona Havlish is the widow of an insurance consultant who died on 9/11 at the World Trade Center. She and six other bereaved relatives - including the widow of one of the airliners' pilots - joined Iran to a suit brought against bin Laden and al-Qaeda. The submission tracks Iran's involvement with al-Qaeda back to 1993. That year, it states, Hizbullah's Imad Mughniyah, a terrorist credited with multiple operations against U.S. citizens, met in Sudan with Osama bin Laden and Ayman al Zawahiri, who, following bin Laden's death in May, has now assumed the al- Qaeda leadership. Al-Qaeda operatives received training in Iran in airline hijacking, according to the memorandum. Significance is given to a communication four months before 9/11, in which a leading Iranian intelligence official authorized support for "al-Qaeda's future plans." Summers and Swan are the authors of the new book, The Eleventh Day, about the 9/11 attack.
