35. ChoicePoint and Khalid Almihdhar
Edited on Sun Jul-02-06 02:31 AM by DrDebug



The FBIs New York office techically began an investigation to locate Khalid Almihdhar on August 29 (2001), but in fact the one inexperienced agent assigned to the search, Robert Fuller, is busy for several days and only begins the search at this time (see August 29, 2001)

(...)
Robert Fuller claims that he conducts a search in the ChoicePoint database. ChoicePoint is one of several companies maintaining commerical databases on personal information about US citizens. The FBI has a contract to access the ChoicePoint database, but none of the others. Fuller doesnt find any record on either Alhazmi or Almihdhar. He suggests this is because of variations in the spelling of names.

However, the chairman of ChoicePoint will later confirm that although the database did have information on the hijackers before 9/11, the FBI did not ask to search the database until shortly after 9/11. The 9/11 Commission will conclude the database was not searched, and notes, Searches of readily available databases could have unearthed their California drivers' licenses, car registrations and telephone listings.

Thomas Pickard, acting FBI Director at the time this search is made, will later falsely claim in public testimony before the 9/11 Commission that the FBI was not allowed to search the ChoicePoint database before 9/11.

Talk about a whole lotta bullshit. The names were never in the database, were they and they weren't there for a reason. So 9/11 commission and ChoicePoint cover it up.
