2,453. 9/11/2001

“…in the early morning of 9/11, the FBI intelligence agent who was searching for [9/11 hijackers Khalid al] Mihdhar and [Nawaf al] Hazmi forwarded a request to the Los Angeles field office. He had learned that Hazmi had arrived in Los Angeles in January 2000. He asked for assistance now in tracking Hazmi and Mihdhar. As he was sending the cable, asking for information that was hopelessly antiquated, the two were waiting at Dulles International Airport [Washington D.C.] to board American Airlines Flight 77.”
