9/11 panel describes how attackers got money

New details on hijackers’ visa, immigration violations. The 9/11 commission has released new details about how 19 hijackers and suspected conspirators in the attacks of September 11, 2001, were financed. The two new reports — released Saturday shortly before the commission closed — also revealed visa and immigration violations among the suspected hijackers. The commission released pictures of hijackers’ visas — including the charred remains of Ziad Jarrah’s visa, plucked from the wreckage of United Flight 93 near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Eight other alleged 9/11 conspirators applied for visas, and three of them succeeded, the reports said. Alleged plot mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed secured a visa in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in July 2001 under an alias, according to the reports. OODA Analyst
