583. 2/25/1993

“On February 25 [1993], [World Trade Center bombing conspirator Mohammed] Salameh, posing as Kamal Ibrahim, took delivery of three tanks of compressed hydrogen–to be used as an accelerant in the explosion–at the Mallory Avenue storage shed [in New Jersey]….Later that evening, Salameh…called the police to report the Ryder van stolen from the parking lot. However, he gave the police the wrong license plate number to ensure the van wouldn’t be stopped the next morning as a stolen vehicle. By then, the van was loaded with a 1,500-pound bomb.”
