“Another top al Qaeda operative at the summit [in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on January 5, 2000] is Khallad bin Atash, who played a key role in the [African] embassy bombings and will later direct the attack on the U.S.S. Cole with Yemeni Fahad al-Quso. Also present is Riduan Isamuddin, aka Hambali, an Indonesian cleric who is the link to the [Ramzi] Yousef-KSM [Khalid Shaikh Mohammed] Manila [Philippines] cell, since he served with Wali Khan Amin Shah on the board of Konsonjaya, the front company that funded the cell. The conference takes place at the condo of Yazid Sufaat, who later entertains Zacarias Moussaoui, the alleged twentieth hijacker. After 9/11, FBI agents will accuse CIA agents of withholding pictures of the summit attendees, thus preventing the FBI from capturing [future 9/11 hijackers Khalid] al-Midhar and [Nawaf] al-Hazmi, who slip into the U.S. on January 15, 2000, when the CIA fails to get their names on a Watch List.”
