Regarding 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta and the other Islamic radicals who planned the terrorist attacks from their cell in Hamburg, Germany: ” ‘At the latest in October 1999, [the Hamburg’s group radicalization] led to the idea of attacking the United States using airplanes, a concept possibly inspired by ideas from other representatives of the international [al Qaeda] network,’ [Germany’s lead federal prosecutor Kay] Nehm said. ‘The group members then traveled to Afghanistan in order to discuss details with members of the international network and to obtain financial and logistical support.’ ” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
