FBI maintains files on reports of undisclosed 9/11 targets

(TNS) – The FBI won’t disclose whether al-Qaida suicide bombers intended to hijack a fifth plane on Sept. 11.

In response to a public records request from the Herald, the agency said: “The documents you requested are in an investigative file that is exempt from disclosure…(and) release of the information could reasonably interfere with enforcement procedures. »

What “procedure”? The agency doesn’t say it.

Sources and previous report suggest that the hijackers were thwarted – turned away or otherwise failed – to New York JFK Airport September 11th 2001.

A military tribunal lingers at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, where the case may be linked to the five terrorists accused of masterminding the 9/11 attacks, including the mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. No court date has been set as plea deals are discussed.

Twenty-two years ago today, 19 al-Qaeda hijackers – including 15 Saudi nationals – hijacked and four planes crashedkilling nearly 3,000 people in one day at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Two of those planes – American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 – took off from Boston’s Logan International Airport. The others departed from Newark, NJ and Washington, DC

“Why are we hiding this if there was a fifth plane? ” request Brett Eagleson, who was 15 when his father died in the collapse of the Twin Towers. “We still don’t have justice.”

The Herald has filed an appeal with the FBI to release the fifth plane’s files.
