Testifying before the Senate
Intelligence Committee last week George Tenet was asked why the CIA never picked
up the trail of Marwan al-Shehhi, the pilot who crashed Flight 175 into the
south tower on 9/11, when thirty months before, in 1999, German intelligence
passed on a hot tip to the CIA with the Al Qaeda terrorist's phone number.
"The Germans gave us a name, Marwan
— that's it — and a phone number," the director of central intelligence replied,
adding: "They didn't give us a first and a last name until after 9/11, with then
We don’t suppose the
9/11Commission has heard testimony from any eyewitnesses to the terrorist
conspiracies activities during their time in the U.S., which seems an almost
criminal oversight. So we want to pass on our
A credible eyewitness to the
terrorist conspiracy’s activities in Florida told the MadCowMorningNews that the
way had already been smoothed for Marwan Al-Shehhi before he arrived in Venice,
by a woman named “Sarah,” supposedly his cousin, who went to work as a
pharmacist at an Eckerds drug’s in nearby Nokomis in 1999.

Stephanie Frederickson lived right next door to Mohamed Atta and a half dozen
other suspected terrorists including Marwan Al-shehhi, at the Sandpiper
Apartments across the street from the Venice Airport.
She knew Marwan as “Mahmouti,” she
told us, and that he already had “relatives” living in town when he arrived. She
stated, “Sara was a pharmacist in Nokomis who was Mahmouti’s cousin.”
For her pains in this and other
matters about which she possessed ‘incovenient knowledge,’ Ms Frederickson was
labeled a “liar” by the FBI.
When we checked with the manager of the
Eckerd’s Drugs in Nokomis, he confirmed to us that a Middle-Eastern woman Sarah
had been a pharmacist there during 1999 and 2000, just as Frederickson stated.
Thus, in addition to the phone
number the Germans gave them for Marwan in the UAE, this new information
suggests the CIA could have gotten in touch with Al-Shehhi through his cousin in
Venice, without having to go to the trouble of punching-in a country code before
How easy is that?
Frederickson, who worked part-time
as a clerk in a convenience store in Venice, also said Atta and his burly
sidekick (read bodyguard) Marwan began coming into her store over a year before
the FBI says they arrived in America for the first time.
“Atta smoked Marlboros, and he and
his buddy came into where I worked a lot in 1999,” she stated matter-of-factly.
“They bought candy bars like they were going out of style, and a lot of bottles
