Video is purportedly September 11 scouting tape

Home videos obtained by Spanish police may reveal target scouting by al Qaeda operatives at the World Trade Center years in advance of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. A videotape recorded in August 1997, with extensive footage inside the 110-story twin towers, is among a cache of tapes Spanish police confiscated from a suspected terrorist’s apartment last year. A Spanish court recently turned over one tape to attorneys representing American families who lost relatives in the September 11 attacks and are suing purported financiers of terrorism in U.S. District Court in Washington. Plaintiffs’ attorneys provided a copy of the tape to CNN. “From looking at the tapes, and from the translations that have occurred, and from the findings of the Spanish court, we can determine that this was no mere tourist trip,” said Jack Cordray, an attorney for the families. The FBI also has a copy of the tape, and federal law enforcement officials said it is possible that it is an al Qaeda scouting tape. Full Story
