The Enigma Of Mohamed Atta

January 24, 2021

In this episode, we discuss the profile of alleged 9/11 ringleader and pilot of American Airlines Flight 11, Mohamed Mohamed el-Amir Awad el-Sayed Atta otherwise known as Mohamed Atta. Who was this young Egyptian? Was he the shy young man who studied engineering in Egypt and Germany? Or was he the radical Islamic fundamnetlist claimed by the FBI and 9/11 Commission Report. According to family and friends from his native Cairo, he was a soft spoken young man who concentrated solely on his studies and hardly dated. He was also never taught any religious studies, according to his father, Mohamed El Amir Awad El Sayed, a prominent lawyer.

Which raises suspicions over why Atta would choose to become affiliated with one of the most notorious radically driven mosques in the city of Hamburg, Germany, Al Quds. Who was then groomed and supported by known Syrian-German Al Qaeda contacts whom were being closely monitored by the Central Intelligence Agency and the German Intelligence branch, BFV. Atta would then travel to the United States and indulge in drinking and moonlighting with women which contradicted his Wahhabi held beliefs and also his shy persona depicted by his family and friends. While ultimately becoming involved with a hijacking martyrdom operation which saw the attacks in New York City and Washington D.C. on September 11th 2001. Leading everyone who Atta became personally involved with over the years to question his alleged personal involvement with such an operation.

So who just was this Mohamed Atta? Student? Religious fanatic? Terrorist hijacker? Intelligence asset?
