The September 11 Travel Operation The success of the September 11 plot depended on the ability of the hijackers to obtain visas and pass an immigration and customs inspection in order to enter the United States. It also depended on their ability to remain here undetected while they worked out the operational details of the attack. If they had failed on either count—entering and becoming embedded—the plot could not have been executed. Here we present the facts and circumstances of the hijackers’ travel operation, including their 25 contacts with consular officers and their 43 contacts with immigration and customs authorities. We also discuss the 12 contacts with border authorities by other September 11 conspirators who applied for a visa. The narrative is chronological, retracing the hijackers’ steps from their initial applications for U.S. visas, through their entry into the United States, to their applications for immigration benefits, and up through their acquisition of state identifications that helped them board the planes. Along the way, we note relevant actions by U.S. government authorities to combat terrorism. There were a few lucky breaks for U.S. border authorities in this story. Mostly, though, it is a story of how 19 hijackers easily penetrated U.S. border security. Overview of the hijacker’s visas The 9/11 hijackers submitted 23 visa applications during the course of the plot, and 22 of these applications were approved. The hijackers applied for visas at five U.S. consulates or embassies overseas; two of them were interviewed. One consular officer issued visas to 11 of the 19 hijackers. Of the eight other conspirators in the plot who sought visas, three succeeded, but only one of the three later sought to use the visa to enter the United States. Hijackers Nawaf al Hazmi and Khalid al Mihdhar were the first to submit visa applications because they were originally slated to be pilots. The four hijackers who did become pilots applied for visas in 2000. The remaining “muscle” hijackers applied in the fall of 2000 through the spring and summer of 2001, three applying twice. Most of the hijackers applied with new passports, possibly to hide travel to Afghanistan recorded in their old ones. It is likely that many of the hijackers’ passports contained indicators of extremism or showed ties to al Qaeda. However, this intelligence was not developed prior to 9/11, and thus State Department personnel reviewing visa applications were not trained to spot these indicators of a terrorist connection. Visa decisions for the hijackers and conspirators were consistent with a system that focused on excluding intending immigrants and depended on checking a database of names to search for criminals and terrorists. Overview of the hijackers’ entries The hijackers successfully entered the United States 33 of 34 times, with the first arriving on January 15, 2000, at Los Angeles International Airport. All others entered through ...

Stem cell therapies in MS There is a great deal of scientific and media interest in stem cells as a possible treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS). Some scientific reports do reveal encouraging clinical findings, but a lot of work still needs to be done to prove their effectiveness and safety for people with MS. Stem cells in MS are still experimental. There is no proven stem cell therapy available for MS anywhere in the world. About this booklet This booklet has been written for and with people affected by MS. In it, we aim to explain the key issues around stem cells and MS. We look at what benefits someone might expect from a stem cell therapy and the different types of stem cells which are being researched for MS. We highlight why it is important to have properly controlled trials in this area also emphasising that we strongly discourage people with MS from approaching ‘stem cell clinics’ that are offering ‘stem cell therapies’ outside of an official clinical trial. The role of MS charities in stem cell research In May 2009, the MS societies of the UK and US held an international meeting in London to reach a consensus on stem cell therapies in MS. 2 The event was supported by the national MS societies of Italy, France, Canada and Australia, and the MS International Federation (MSIF). Twenty-seven experts in stem cells and MS, as well as 17 charity representatives, attended. This included many people affected by MS. As a result of this meeting we now have: • An agreed statement (‘consensus statement’) and guidelines for researchers and clinicians. These should encourage consistency between studies and speed up the development of potential therapies. • This information booklet, for people affected by MS....
