756. 2/15/1995

After being arrested in the Philippines, bombing conspirator Abdul Hakim Murad was interrogated by Col. Rodolfo Mendoza. ” ‘He discussed with me,’ said Mendoza, ‘even without me mentioning, that there is really formal training [going on] of suicide bombers. He said that there were other Middle Eastern pilots training and he discussed with me the names and flight training schools they went to. This is in February 1995.’ ” Targets included ” ‘CIA headquarters…the Pentagon, and an unidentified nuclear facility.’ …Murad confessed that other targets of the airliner hijacking scheme would include the Transamerica Tower in San Francisco, the Sears Tower in Chicago, and…the World Trade Center.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
