Shortly after accepting Osama bin Laden’s mission to learn how to fly and then attack America with a passenger jet, future 9/11 hijacker Marwan al-Shehhi went home to the United Arab Emirates. “He immediately applied for a new passport and a U.S visa. On January 3, 2000, he ordered a pilot-training video online, the first concrete step toward flying in the entire plot.”
