I'm Bill Hemmer Fox News reporting in Jersey City, New Jersey and and right over there is lower Manhattan.
With a twin towers of the World Trade Center once stood.
Fifteen of the nineteen hijackers lived or moved to the state of New Jersey.
Now a decade after the attacks the World Trade Center is rising again new buildings will be finished it about two years time.
But the iconic skyline of Manhattan remains incomplete to this day.
On that fateful morning 3000 people died in new York at the Pentagon in Washington.
And in Shanksville Pennsylvania.
After exhaustive studies by congress and the 9/11 commission.
There are questions we are still asking today.
Who really helped the nineteen man who held them to move around our country largely undetected.
And was this man American born cleric and more -- locking at the center of plots of 9/11.
Is he the new bin Laden.
We begin our report -- Catherine Herridge.
January 5 2000 -- -- -- Malaysian.
In the Condo overlooking it beautifully designed golf course at least a dozen of Osama bin Laden's operatives.
Including these two future hijackers meanwhile -- 'cause me and colleagues on the dark gathered for a meeting.
The purpose discuss details in the upcoming plots to bomb the USS Cole in the Gulf of Aden and the attack plans for 9/11.
It Wallace a terror summit.
Since the 1998 bombings of the US embassies in Tanzania and Kenya was killed over 200.
Our National Security Agency the NSA had captured and recorded phone calls made from the specific house in Yemen.
He wants and sixty miles outside of the capital -- enough.
The house was Osama bin Laden's operations center.
The call came in and makes you families who have hijacked American Airlines flight 77.
That with a slam into the Pentagon.
Headed for the country.
Photos were taken at the terror summit which remain classified to this day.
I remember the picture which clearest -- -- -- looking.
Margaret senior was an FBI agent assigned to work with the CIA's Osama bin Laden unit known as Alec station that meeting -- surveillance.
There's a bit of communication.
From out station.
Well or station.
It before you -- there where -- That's what we have no idea whether -- But we knew someone had pieces to view us.
The CIA refused to share those with other agencies such as the FBI.
And the Border Patrol.
Which allowed to to literally walk into the United States through Los Angeles airport a week after the summit of terrorism -- We blew it basically we blew it with that advance notice.
We could have gotten a -- the price in the condominium unit.
George Tenet the director of the CIA had just said that.
Al-Qaeda and bin Laden.
Was the number one priority agency and every effort should be given to.
-- and them before they attacked us.
Former senator bond grand -- shared -- congressman Porter gone the joint congressional inquiry into the attacks of nine elevenths this was an 800 page report based on a half million documents.
300 interviews and 22 hearings which finished in December 2002.
It still deeply into intelligence activities before and after the attacks.
Graham wrote the acclaimed intelligence matters and in new novel keys to the kingdom.
That was one of -- recurring themes of 9/11 and that is why not we'll.
Despite one of the.
Painful things about.
Or things that I regret -- cannot tell the bureau about what we were talking.
Without getting approval.
From the bosses out -- tell via -- Goss was CI protected information and.
After the terror summit finished 23 year old husband and 24 year old -- are arrived at LEX via Bangkok.
On January 15 2000.
Unlike Osama bin Laden who was from a wealthy Saudi family familiar with the west that's a fourteen year old bin Laden on a family vacation in 1971.
These two saudis had never been to America.
-- -- significant about all house me and I'll meet our.
They were the first of the nineteen to come in the United States.
Number two they almost immediately began receiving substantial assistance from the Saudi government or representatives of the Saudi government.
-- -- my -- Saudi citizen living in San Diego was one of the first people to help the hijackers on our shores.
In this highly rejected declassified FBI document -- then 42 year old had been in the US on a student -- -- since 1993.
Is there any record -- that Omar Al buy you -- was a student in the United States.
He professed that he was a student.
I checked with the university that he said he has tended they had no record of his having been instant.
As a reporter for the -- Diego Tribune Kelly Jordan was aware of by -- I knew it was a very well known in the community and was thought to be by some Saudi spy kind of spying on other saudis for the Saudi government and often had a video camera.
Volume he was also collecting a salary as a ghost employee for her -- a subsidiary of a contractor for the Saudi civil aviation company.
And there was this story.
And when -- unique comes up from San Diego at the request of the console for political and cultural affairs in the Saudi consulate.
In Los Angeles.
We don't know what happened in the one hour meeting that the cat but as soon as the meeting was over.
By you me and his driver.
Went to -- specific restaurant ended up at a table.
The two hijackers all -- us this.
Which would mind me asking for a movie -- relocated from Los Angeles San Diego which they agreed to do.
How likely is -- that someone's gonna have a chance meeting with two hijackers well there were 134.
-- restaurant in Los Angeles January of 2000.
We had statistician and do a probability.
Go for people would.
End up at the same place at the same time.
And it was canceled more than five million to one.
Five million to want.
Remember the first two hijackers here know nothing about getting around California and speak no English.
But the ever helpful by -- had someone in mind.
He enlisted help of its one year old Ian many -- are -- -- -- -- was a student is seen GA -- Rosemont community college.
Kelly -- is one of the few people who interviewed no dark.
He told me that Omar Al buy you need is someone who asked -- to -- that.
And he's also asked to help Manhattan -- -- San Diego blow -- was fluent in English and spoke very well.
-- hijackers didn't -- so well he was asked to help them get driver's license Social Security numbers.
That kind of thing.
Though the hijackers wanting to our country legally most -- at -- -- 1998 entry into the US from Canada was anything but legal.
He presents is in any passport as as proof of citizenship shortly after receiving his USV -- he travels to San Diego.
And within a week of his arrival.
He's filed an application for asylum claiming to be a citizen of Somalia plain.
He further says that he entered the United States through New York.
Utilizing a fraudulent Italian passport in the name of frank -- a poll frank the check it.
It's volatile like a four month time period.
And no marriage of the two men here the national -- college -- -- he's been a flight instructor for 26 years.
Why do you believe that plane is playing it silence but this is always us and we had a good time so -- -- That would be the birth right there at what was it like to realize that you've been flying in same planes that hijackers in the line.
At first -- was an airy feeling that's where it all started farm.
The hijackers moved here to buy new -- complex in CG -- at the Kirkwood apartment and by UB signed a lease.
Buried on page -- seventeen in a footnote from the 9/11 commission report is a reference to -- phone calls on February 4 2000.
Between Omar Al buy you meat and a local teen -- Anwar -- reluctant.
The -- I was aware that you -- had contact with.
How -- the figures in the past Intel wires John Berger hundreds behind Jones has filed thousands of -- -- information act request was involved in seems suspicious charities.
But they had cut the investigation shortly before the hijackers -- that sudden there's a -- it was not worth investigating anymore so they dropped that.
What what's the relationship.
Like between Milwaukee and the two hijackers and -- Diego the assumption was that it was a close relationship.
And then a -- may have been one of the few if not only people that -- me and it's here.
With what they were there for and the plot of 9/11 was going to be.
And lo behold it was a time period I -- I was.
You know analyzing phone numbers.
In an exclusive interview with Fox News pentagon criminal investigator in New Jersey Jim bush explained how he discovered the links in the phone number.
There's a phone call from now my cell phone.
To a phone.
Listen to it and -- -- Denver Colorado the same data out Wyoming says -- -- going from there -- -- system again in the form.
Now what that phone call was there -- -- polls between.
It's always speculation where you can make a rational conclusion that there was contact at that time.
Who was at a welcoming party that Omar -- -- -- through for the hijackers in San Diego was a -- -- that's coming up.
The first two hijackers 'cause we need access to living -- and -- Diego courtesy of buying these small.
Those positive -- became very expensive.
Like to go to bars and they spend a lot of money in fact -- at one point wanted to bury one of these strippers that he had met at the far.
I knew me and he was one of the individuals who had been subject of a counterterrorism investigation or inquiry by the FBI and lo and behold ends up.
Being really very helpful.
From her -- work for the joint congressional inquiry executive director Eleanor hill remembers -- -- that now shine a brighter light.
On the US support.
And by you me parents phone calls what locking you on that day is taking -- in their apartment.
-- -- states there's no thank documentation that supports the reimbursement.
Of the monies to Al -- -- -- from the two hijackers hit the 9/11 commission report says.
The hijackers him on the spot our investigation did not find any record to support the argument that they had reimbursed site.
Why you may help the party for the hijackers.
And he videotaped.
That party had one party to introduce has -- our.
To an inner circle -- Muslims primarily sounds San Diego.
The video camera man was a wealthy 22 year old from California -- Morgan.
Morgan was searching for less interest in radical Islam as he became known as its main Dyson and also -- -- didn't -- In this document Morgan is described as quote a trust fund key to a grown -- -- Perjury treat that videotape under the freedom of -- act if I refused they said it was being used in an ongoing investigation.
There there's ongoing investigation of anybody on that tape certainly it would seem that on -- -- Would be a likely candidate.
I wouldn't be surprised it off -- like he was at that party at a Lackey certainly was connected to these guys and he was sort of a spiritual mentor to them while they were at the mosque on the board of money -- San Diego and I was told that they would go behind closed doors and have private sessions together.
In a bizarre twist soon after that party the two hijackers change addresses and moved into this home.
-- this FBI in.
-- very important thing here.
This plot who had recently gone through -- very difficult divorce.
And hair and he's a large vacant house.
Mean FBI and sit under sunny -- who is still living in California.
In 2000 uses 65 year old Indian born Muslim claiming he had a doctorate and occasionally taught English at local Community Colleges.
Fox News could not confirm -- taught English and -- got his degree.
By the congressional inquiry wrote -- shake the 9/11 commission did not even though commission investigators interviewed him.
And since he was doing to the United States what mine was doing for -- raised.
So you have the anomaly.
Of two of the future hijackers.
In the home of the page FBI asked.
If you are reported as people to the FBI he told me that he.
Mention their first names.
He was one of the several people that was never made available.
To our inquiry why did the FBI deny you access these asset program was so sensitive that they didn't want to have.
I found that to be -- rather disingenuous answer given the fact that that this man was being paid rather handsomely in fact he got a severance -- 100000 dollars.
From the FBI and this and yet and two of the hijackers.
Living in his home and apparently.
Never told me about it.
And then there was a lot of negotiation.
Which at one point had -- saying I will testify.
You with the joint inquiry will give the community for any future prosecution.
It's the only thing you can conclude it is that he felt that he had very damaging information.
-- -- that he wanted to immunity from something and that something.
Had to do with his relationship with -- -- -- Did you ever speak to the FBI -- Robert Mueller about that block.
I absolutely and he's the one who said the reason that we're not giving access to show you just -- Our -- program is very valuable and we cannot -- He needs outside intrusion into.
Did you feel that was an honest answer well that was the director's answer.
Think the hijackers used a mirror network across the country another group of characters always there to help.
And are these networks still in place of America today.
We continue our investigation.
With Eric Shawn.
We'll the whole face of 33 year old Egyptian Mohamed.
Is seated into memory he would crash American Airlines flight eleven.
Into the world trade center's north -- -- -- Clearly in New England -- them every saying.
Everybody what they're -- war.
Had been handpicked by 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohamed to be the lead hijacker using multiple names he has lived as a student in Cairo.
And here in Hamburg Germany.
June 2000 keep time of movement.
These are left San Diego moving out of the home he shared with FBI assets -- And it was a temporary goodbye to local imam Anwar Al -- experts say -- are headed to Yemen to recruit other muscle hijacker.
And daughter with a multiple entry -- and touched down in Florida having -- -- -- The end Newark new -- his first stop was Venice Florida on the State's Gulf Coast where we settled with twenty year old Moore wants -- she's.
The pilot who would fly united flight exclusivity five into the -- -- -- Already there was a Lebanese man.
26 -- -- -- he jarrah he would crash united flight 93 into the ground in Shanksville Pennsylvania.
-- and -- are made this video together as the last will and -- That's in San Diego Paul started taking flying lessons.
-- was constantly on the move flying to Spain in January 2001.
After -- return.
He and -- he moved again into this apartment in Coral Springs just outside my.
Were they using a support network has been in place in America for decades.
What you have.
In terms of the support system.
Our another layer of people who kinda know what these guy -- are about.
But don't want to ask a lot of questions Andrew McCarthy was the lead prosecutor in the World Trade Center bombing of 1993.
To the extent that they can give them some help.
You know whether it's with housing or money or jobs or training they can later tell whoever asked him about it.
They was simply fulfilling their obligation -- Muslims to help all the Muslims.
One person in Florida who seem to fit that bill this -- 26 year old chemistry major who now has a five million dollar price tag on this.
For his alleged role in al-Qaeda today he's grown up in the epicenter of radical Islam here in America.
And I'm sure for sure moves those saudis who was born in Saudi Arabia and Pickens country during the 1980s with the Stanley should -- his father was a man by the name shake -- -- share.
Should presume local -- -- Irma -- a translator for the blind Sheikh.
This is the Brooklyn mosque which was home to the hardcore Islamic Egyptian cleric Omar Abdel rock monitor.
-- cleric was blinded in childhood by diabetes.
He had given these fat loss for the killing and -- -- -- president.
His successor Hosni Mubarak.
Arrested hundreds including the blind -- And a 31 year old firebrand.
Doctor Ayman zawahiri.
What was the relationship between the blind -- and -- -- import rivals so eerie.
Is running an Egyptian terrorist organization called Egyptian Islamic Jihad.
And around the same time that up to rock -- is running the Islamic group released from prison these two rivals would initially go their separate ways are -- ventured to Pakistan -- met up with Osama bin Laden.
The blind -- chose America and a ride in 1990.
By the time he got here he was already a superstar in the jihadist and -- why did we -- him.
That's the F sixteen was billion dollar question one office is trying to keep him out as a terrorist the other one is giving him a green card as a religious war -- call -- -- comedy -- -- -- -- hadn't -- such -- tragic -- The blind sheik did these fund raising tour this through the United States.
And another secret of nine elevenths this FBI document written just weeks after the attacks withheld the name of a man who -- In October 1992 posted a party for Sheikh Omar -- -- The congressional joint inquiry into 9/11 however names that party -- Mr.
-- earners and Osama Abbas is not a Saudi national who wait years later would be in San Diego.
And according to investigators.
A close associate of Omar by you me.
Yes they're very same man who signed the -- for the hijackers.
And threw them -- But -- in 1990 the blind Sheikh conspired another mission.
Fifth 1990 gunshots ring out in -- New York hotel.
-- -- don't -- a follower of the blind -- at the Brooklyn mosque comes down rabbi Meir Kahane.
Shannon Taylor was an eyewitness and -- these photographs.
Out of nowhere came.
-- him right here.
The hall of fame ride out like that they've been practicing for years it was thought of the blind -- upgrade -- leaders.
Three years later another follower of the blind -- Ramzi Yousef -- event filled with explosives into the garage of the entrance.
One of the real miracles that I think it's ever happened in the modern history of the world.
Is that only seven lives were lost.
In the World Trade Center attack in October 1995 the blind Sheikh was convicted of terrorism and sent to prison.
But that personal translator and his family including son hot -- move to South Florida.
There was another terrorist -- linked to blind sheik and your card that was based in Fort Lauderdale.
And that was the community in which should have -- for him well enough.
New details of the hijackers movements in Arizona.
Florida Virginia Connecticut and New Jersey.
And why was sent -- -- he invited to lunch at the Pentagon.
Shortly after the attacks of nine elevenths.
By the spring of 2001 the key figures in the nine elevenths plot were well established in America.
Besides taking 727 flight simulator lessons that -- the -- airport ringleader Mohammed Ali and his call small and check.
Moved into disappointment in Coral Springs, Florida just north but my.
And living in this house in nearby Miramar was -- -- not -- issue.

Secrets of 9/11 ladies and -- America's southwest.
Al-Qaeda has had a person's Arizona's all the -- -- out of this.
Connections -- of arms from far deeper than any.
Obviously any of the others -- now with the Goldwater institute.

And everything -- he -- week we just.
But Phoenix FBI special agent Ken Williams was suspicious.
-- Koreans gave a great deal notoriety because of the Phoenix now.
Which we -- we offered in July of 2001 describing several flight schools in Arizona that had an unusually large number.
Of Middle Eastern students trying to -- -- the memo states Osama bin Laden is trying quote.
To establish a cadre of individuals who will be in a position in the future to conduct terror activity against civil aviation targets.
The declassified parts of the memo don't name hanjour -- but does mention Zacharias O'Brien -- -- 24 year old Lebanese national.
So Brody was the disciple or an advocate of Osama been lost -- Williams noted.
That in 1999 super drove two -- into the Phoenix airport for a flight to Washington DC.
Jewels got up America west flight out of Phoenix.
He went and tried and essentially -- either way air force away into the cockpit.
And they were stopped.
And they -- all what we thought it was the bathrooms the theory.
Post 9/11 became.
-- that this was essentially a dry run.
But this was a -- for them to see how hard it would be to -- up about your seat and walked to the cockpit and go into the car.
Senator Graham noted that in at least five occasions -- and hanjour trained together at the same flight school.
Ken Williams memo fell on deaf ears.
Because it was just -- -- priority at that time it did not rise above.
But the truth is by the time Williams sent this memo hanjour and highest score goals.
Having left Arizona three months -- They boarded their utility refunds to this mosque in Virginia more and more alive DeDe was now the.
What did this man have to do without while -- like fish a couple of questions and what did he do for the hijackers.
That is just ahead.
In January 2001.
In warlock he moved on for San Diego and became.
Within months plays 77 hijackers knew lawful because -- -- -- -- would follow their spiritual keeper.

Hope these guys dealt with do you swift trucking around -- -- -- parents.
Another secret is 9/11 is this man 28 year old Jordanian -- and -- -- baba.
He ran illegal driver's -- schemes in New Jersey Connecticut and Virginia and -- apartments in all.
Three states and investigations lead came up from -- Virginia office -- -- -- to run down and locate individual by the name of our bottom.
Connected to motor vehicle driver's licenses -- is that similar to the hijackers.
-- -- -- -- coming up to where -- those phone card was found right here in this Dunkin' Donuts here.
Fifteen and nineteen actually came through Jersey at some point.
Then SCI special agent bond because he led the Pentagon investigation team in Paterson, New Jersey.
He talked about the 9/11 case for the first time.
He found -- we were looking for there's no doubt when he got tipped off he was in Connecticut this time.
Welcome to the Connecticut office of the FBI -- settled by the way just happening hijackers but we knew that wasn't true and schools for Paterson office called me.
It's -- -- sitting down -- issue is an FBI special agent in the Washington field office.
This is the first live person.
Yes I didn't meet the hijackers historic.
Change back and forth its first store was that he met them at the local 7-Eleven you bumped into what he recognized yourself.
He looked at the main city you know I know -- from out of state and any place to live what else and -- help you.

The mosque in Falls Church to go see the mom and ask for work when he went to the -- mom the first time he saw that he was in an altercation -- fight inside the mosque but somebody who stood back.
And watched he said I had I didn't feel he was religious man because of that argument -- went into the prayer area.
And it was if there were the prayers were over -- when he was finished praying turned around and into hijackers standing there.
We thought that was very very strange that they picked him to a system to get an apartment when it was 45 and the people there.
How many times.
-- -- Feel.
-- -- -- I love -- -- did his buddy nights.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- My big I'm.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- He just didn't go down there and meet these people by accident.
-- they had to have a network.
Those -- and bush believe a lucky tasked with but to help the hijackers.
The nine elevenths commission -- that's suspicion but it did not include -- as -- and there is this connection between a lucky and the -- 9/11 cell.
There was a search of -- dealerships apartment in Germany the people found.
The fax number.
Pretty good Virginia mosque where in -- on Lockheed was working it is another thread that ties -- walking to the.
The hijackers moved quite a bit they kept moving frequently.
This is the apartment ever Bubba -- for the hijackers in Alexandria Virginia and she does as his roommate for other help.
Called and said hey the saudis are back.
And I look forward and -- like to take some sites he.
In May 2001.
-- Bubba down cause means conjure with two new roommates future muscle hijackers on the -- the money and much at Nokia.
It was a road trip from hell the climate broke up I 95 and ended up staying for two nights in Fairfield Connecticut at this motel -- threw 73.
75 phone calls were made to locate flight schools car agencies and apartments.
They argued over money and they wanted to move on I guess it just didn't pan out forum up in Connecticut so.
Our about a suggests about taking action he said that was -- last time he had seen -- for the next day we know that the hijackers moved that is.
They've wound up settling here for about three months -- union avenue exit on the third floor here.
Investigators -- reviled in Paterson with 200 less than two months before 9/11.
Coming up to the south had us library.
This -- -- on your use computers we had a very good independent witness and that puts he had withdrawn at the library.
He had denied it in a degree -- 90% of the stories -- Coming up we dig deeper and asked what happened to these people helped the hijackers where are they now some of the answers you will find stunning.
And why was out of -- -- -- get mad -- -- now -- al-Qaeda invited to lunch at the Pentagon only months after the attacks.
That's a Fox News exclusive.
Two days before the 9/11 attacks in moral monkey was spent in Southern California at UC Irvine.
He attended a rally -- mile -- -- also known as H.
Rap Brown a former black panther who was eventually convicted of killing a Georgia deputy share.
Balance between eleventh and were lucky he's.
In the immediate chaos -- the murder of 3000 people.
The identities of the nineteen hijackers quickly emerged fifteen of them were Saudi citizens.
Last point of contact for tracked -- including Milwaukee who was interviewed four times by the FBI between September 15 in nineteen.
He was quick to go an immediate outreach tour for Islam.
-- This email obtained exclusively by Fox News confirms that a -- he was invited to and attended a luncheon dependence on executive dining room and February 5 2000 into.
More than seventy people whose names were rejected by the Defense Department are -- on the invitation from the office of General Counsel.
The luncheon featured a lucky as a guest speaker for.
We're -- his slump in Middle Eastern politics and culture.
They DOG lawyer who vetted the teen mom wrote she quote.
Particularly liked how he addressed by the average Middle Eastern person perceives the United States.
At the time besides the known relationship with at least three of the hijackers.
A much he had a rap sheet with the arrests for prostitution and another for loitering around to school consists -- shocking to you.
Some ways this looks like maybe.
The example of where the Department of Defense was unaware of what the Department of Justice the FBI knew about it.
Days after that -- -- -- he left the country three months later award for his arrest was issued for passport crime.
The American born cleric is now -- in Yemen where he also holds citizenship.
But there was a mysterious return to the United States in October 2000 into it despite the outstanding warrant is stocks reported last year unlocking was released from scheduled custody on the corners of -- FBI agent.
Congressman Frank Wolf wants -- to -- secret of 9/11.
-- your concern at Fox News report about the -- October 2002 decision to release and -- -- From custody upon his return to the US despite an outstanding warrant for as the -- at that time.
I would I be happy to have -- to have to look into the matter I can tell you that we try to provide everything that we had that would be responsive to the interest so does.
Nine elevenths commissioner.
The time in the years is not eleven a -- he has become more operational with direct links to the massacre at Fort Hood.
-- underwear bomber and the failed attack -- Times Square.
And what happened to those who facilitated in nineteen hijackers.
Of the party -- -- by you mean mysteriously message he would -- for England shortly before the attacks.
He was detained by Scotland Yard at the request of the FBI spot.
TF BI never showed up and so they had no alternative but to release by human.
And shortly there after he returned -- -- No DR -- tried to remain in EU last.
There rationale -- -- to marry somebody -- he was trying to protect his immigration status because he knew that a lot of agents are going to be coming down on him pretty quickly.
Nevertheless he was deported and immigration violations in Yemen in May 2004.
-- -- -- was eventually charged -- document fraud and deported to Jordan in July 2003.
-- -- chance is still trying to stay here.
He now has the Social Security number.
It's -- about this country which is shameful job it was to be deported he went into immigration court.
Somehow downplayed his involvement with the hijackers and he was subsequently granted asylum to.
Authorities are still trying to deport him a hearing is scheduled in June and there is this secret there were 27 pages.
In the joint.
-- -- that were.
Redacted well I can't tell you much because it's state secret.
Classified but it -- related primarily to the Saudi role in the United States.
In the months leading up to nine elevenths would I be -- to assume that the pages dealt with the money trail that was part of.
But they hit it hard and they just started it yeah.
Like a house of mirrors there's something eerily familiar but the enemies we face in -- post 9/11 world.
Some are American born like in moral Maki and or raised here like -- -- should we -- do you believe.
Right now that there are Islamic terrorist cells here in the United States that want to kill -- I don't think there's any question about that.
Osama bin Laden is dead but the harsh truth remains that al-Qaeda.
