14. Real people
"And: there is no match between these photos and real persons: Where are the niographies? Where are the parents showing their beloved hijacker-son as a child ? as a youngster. class-room photos and so on."
There are good biographies for some of the hijackers, in particular Atta and Jarrah, Hopsicker's stuff on Atta is really very detailed and Thompson got a lot of stuff on Jarrah. There are stacks of witnesses who knew the hijackers and met them and can independently confirm they were more or less where the FBI said, more or less when the FBI said they were there in the US. Obviously, not all the hijackers were using their real names (the 6 who later came forward + some who may have taken identities from others who died fighting, for example in Chechnya). I agree that a lot of background detail we would expect to have for some of the hijackers is missing and I attribute this to the failure of the FBI investigation in Saudi. PT posted somewhere here that he thought the investigation was intentionally bungled and I tend to agree with him on this.
