15. Not very thorough investigation
I agree that the investigation in Florida was hardly very thorough, especially given the magnitude of the crime and, like you, I think it might be indicitative of something. Lots of people (most notably Hopsicker) have suggested that some of the hijackers were involved in drug smuggling in somw eay and lots have also suggested that there was an underground railroad through which the hijackers (and also probably dozens of other Al Qaeda operatives) got into the US. Sibel Edmonds also mentions the railroad and says that it operated using influence-peddling and bribery. I think these two factors, in addition to the FBI's traditional incompetence, are sufficient to explain why the investigation went the way it did.

"For example: it was Hopsicker who found out about Attas German friends. If the FBI were interested to get backrground and co-conspirators they should have got them ...."
I agree completely. Al Qaeda had a substantial network in the US. I can't believe the hijackers were deeply plugged into it. A proper investigation should have blown this network wide open.
