Terrorist ringleader introduced
girls to two "German friends"
by Daniel Hopsicker
September 27— Venice FL
Mohamed Atta footed the bill
for himself and two young American girls on what an associate of the two
girls later described as a non-stop 3-day drug-and booze-filled romp in
Key West in February of 2001, the MadCowMorningNews has learned.
The story emerged with the
news that Atta’s American girlfriend Amanda Keller, in addition to accompanying
him to Key West, had also during that same month rented a safe house for
him for a short time in nearby North Port FL.
"He didn't even care if the
house had a bed, all he wanted was a desk," landlord Tony Laconia
told local reporters.
On the day after the Sept
11 attack, FBI agents began combing the town of North Port just south of
Venice looking for local residents Tony and Vonnie Laconca, who had rented
a home to Mohamed Atta and Amanda Keller, they had discovered, in February
Landlord Anthony Laconca
told the FBI that Keller had dishwater-blond hair, was big-boned and freckled,
and seemed to be very "enamored of Mohamed," according to a report in the
local Sun-Herald newspaper containing never-before publicized details illuminating
the terrorist conspiracy's stay in Florida.
After renting to the pair,
the Laconcas later learned that a young female friend of Amanda's, a then-employee
of Vonnie Laconca's cleaning firm, went with Atta and Amanda to Key West
for a wild drug-and-booze-fueled party.
"They were gone for three
days," Tony Laconca told local reporters. "They didn't sleep. It was a
"'The boss' writes all
Laconca said Mohamed footed
the entire bill, including alcohol, drugs, hotel, and buying new clothes
for Keller and the unnamed female cleaning company employee.
Then Tony Laconca made an
even-more amazing disclosure...
"While in Key West Atta introduced
the girls to two men from Germany that they said were Mohamed's friends,"
he stated. "I thought it was strange at the time, because Mohamed didn't
appear to be German."
Even more incredibly, Tony
Laconca's then-wife Vonnie told authorities that she had learned that her
former cleaning company employee got a phone call from Atta during the
week before the Sept.11 attack.
Where are Amanda Keller and
her unnamed friend today? Why haven't they come forward with their story
to either inform the American public of what they know, or simply to cash
Who were the two German men
with Mohamed Atta in Key West?
It strains credulity that
Atta would have "accidentally" bumped into German friends in tiny and remote
"Anything we have to say
we say on CNN."
The Sun-Herald reporter probably
then asked some of the questions we would like to ask.
But the FBI in Tampa would
neither confirm nor deny that agents were even interviewing people in North
In an incredible statement
an FBI spokesperson identified only as "Pam," which exemplifies the total
blackout on critical information which has prevailed from that day to this,
Sun-Herald reporter Elaine Allen-Emrich was told, "We recommend that you
check in with CNN for current information. Any press statements can be
found on televised stations like CNN."
The discovery that Amanda
Keller had a year-long ("enamored of Mohamed") relationship with the terrorist
ringleader makes the willowy 22-year old lingerie model a potentially important
witness in the upcoming independent investigation into the terrorist conspiracy
which led to the Sept 11 attack.
Too bad she's missing.
"The Boss' writes all
the checks: Pt 2."
It is clear that Keller,
who settled into her new Venice apartment just two weeks before Atta moved
in with her, for what neighbors said was a very stormy six-week stay, had
a back-stage pass to the activities of the terrorist conspiracy, and a
behind-the-scenes view of the terrorist ringleader known to the other cadre
principals as "the boss" from the time he first hit the ground in Venice,
in March of 2000, three months before the FBI’s chronology has
him entering the U.S., to, at least, February 2001, almost a year later.
When Amanda rented their
property in North Port, the Laconcas told authorities, she said she
would translate for Mohamed, who spoke limited English.
Keller also told them she
would be responsible for the rental, but it was Atta who wrote the
check, and when Atta returned alone several weeks later to pick up his
security deposit the couple was surprised to discover that his English
Keller was arrested on a
minor bad check charge a few weeks later, and Atta returned the favor
by bailing her out of Sarasota’s South County Jail.
Interestingly, the Laconcas
told authorities that Amanda Keller told them Atta was French-Canadian.
This echoes what we have already heard, from Keller's next-door neighbor
at the Sandpiper apartments, who stated she listened in amazement as Keller
introduced Atta to her as being "from France."
Sometimes a picture is
worth a thousand words.
The discovery of Amanda Keller’s
arrest and mug shot also quickly led us to conclude that we had earlier
been in error in reporting that Atta’s girlfriend Amanda Keller was the
same Amanda Keller who was also known to be a member in Clearwater, FL
of the ‘Sea Org’ of the Church of Scientology.
A comparison of the Amanda
Keller in the Florida mug shot with the picture available on the Internet
of the Amanda Keller who belonged to the "Sea Org," shows clearly that
they are not the same person.
The Amanda Keller we are
looking for—Atta's squeeze—is another Amanda Keller.
Put another way, the Amanda
Keller who consorted with Mohamed Atta in Florida—the girl in the mug
shot taken at the Sarasota County Jail—is definitely not the Amanda Keller
who belongs to Scientology's Sea Org.
We sincerely regret the mistaken
identification and apologize to Ms. Keller as well as to the Church
of Scientology’s Sea Org. (see Correction and Apology)
"Tell us more about your
two German friends in Key West," we would love to be able to ask Mohamed
Atta today, while simultaneously shining a bright light into his eyes.
Failing that, we would like
to ask the same question of FBI Director Robert Mueller, while if at all
possible shining a bright light into his eyes as well.
Sadly, however, we have all
already heard the only answer our Government has so far been willing to
