Terrorist Khalid “Almihdhar first emerged as an important figure when it was disclosed that he was one of two hijackers put on a United States government watch list of suspected terrorists on Aug. 21 [2001]. The other, Nawaf Alhamzi, was added simply because he flew from Bangkok to Los Angeles on Jan. 15, 2000, along with Mr. Almihdhar, intelligence officials said.”
