Mohamed Atta is believed to have piloted one of the planes that hit the World Trade Center.
The father of one of the hijackers who commandeered the first plane that crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, praised the recent terror attacks in London and said many more would follow.

Speaking to CNN producer Ayman Mohyeldin Tuesday in his apartment in the upper-middle-class Cairo suburb of Giza, Mohamed el-Amir said he would like to see more attacks like the July 7 bombings of three London subway trains and a bus that killed 52 people, plus the four bombers.

Displayed prominently in the apartment were pictures of el-Amir's son, Mohamed Atta, the man who is believed to have piloted American Airlines Flight 11 into the north tower of the World Trade Center as part of the attacks on the United States

I guess CNN thought people were interested in this idiot. I'm not!!!

2. Damn Liberal Press:
Anyone else get the endless letters to the editor asking where the Muslim outrage is? There are hundreds of condemnations from the Muslim community, and this one idiot, if the comment is even real, gets more coverage. *#&$#(& Liberal Media...

3. This guy's probably senile.
Also notice that they say "Mohamed Atta is believed to have piloted one of the planes that hit the World Trade Center". Pity they never had a full investigation to confirm what actually happened.

5. "Believed" to have piloted...
"Believed" to have been on the plane?
"Believed" to have had a ticket?
Well, since there won't be a trial I guess the gov't will never have to show us the evidence or prove anything one way or the other. Just like Madrid, just like London. Pretty convenient.

Atta's father has said several times since 9/11 that his son is alive and he talks to him regularly. I for one wouldn't be surprised if that were true.

6. Doubles
Many people have speculated the 9/11 hijackers had doubles.
