27. Minstrel Boy you may have these but I thought I'd post them

These two documents show the flight history of Mohamed Atta and Marwan Al-Shehhi from 6 July until 8 August 2000. They provide information on the planes that were flown and the cost incurred.

Mohamed Atta

Marwan Al-Shehhi

I'm sure you've seen this but it is very interesting

News that Mohamed Atta had been on the payroll of the elite international program surfaced in a curious way just a month after the 9/11 attack: a brief seven-line report by German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung on Oct. 18, 2001, under the headline ATTA WAS TUTOR FOR SCHOLARSHIP HOLDERS.

The story quoted spokesmen for Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft, described as a German international further education organisation, as having admitted paying Hamburg cadre principal Atta as a scholarship holder and tutor, between 1995 and 1997.

But what makes the story curious is that the German paper concealed the shocking implications of their story-that Mohamed Atta had been on the payroll of a joint U.S.-German government program-through the simple expedient of neglecting to mention that the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft was merely a private entity set up to administer the "exchange" initiative of the two governments.

The U.S. end of the program is run out of an address at United Nations Plaza in New York by CDS International. The letters stand for Carl Duisberg Society, also the name of its German counterpart in Cologne, the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft. Both are named for Carl Duisberg, a German chemist and industrialist who headed the Bayer Corporation during the 1920s.
