Suspected 9/11 recruiter for al-Qaeda captured in Syria
Kurdish fighters in Syria say they have arrested a German national accused of being involved in the planning of the September 11, attacks in 2001 in the United States, a report says.
“Mohammed Haydar Zammar has been arrested by Kurdish security forces and is now being interrogated in northern Syria,” the Kurdish Peoples’ Protection Units (YPG) commander, who wants to remain anonymous, said on Thursday, Al Jazeera reported
The detainee, who is his mid-fifties, was previously questioned by German police following the September 11 attacks which were a series of strikes in the US which killed nearly 3,000 people and caused about $10 billion worth of property and infrastructure damage.
US officials assert that the 9/11 attacks were carried out by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists but many experts have raised questions about the official account.
They believe that rogue elements within the US government, such as former Vice President Dick Cheney, orchestrated or at least encouraged the 9/11 attacks in order to accelerate the US war machine and advance the Zionist agenda.
Zammar has been accused of recruiting some of the plane hijackers. He fled Germany after the 9/11 attacks and relocated to Morocco before being arrested in the North African country as part of an operation involving CIA agents.
Zammar was then handed over to the Syrian authorities. In 2007, he was sentenced to 12 years in prison for being an alleged member of the Muslim Brotherhood. He was released in 2014.
The Pentagon hasn’t yet confirmed the Zammar’s capture, but reportedly said it was looking into it.
Fifteen of the 9/11 “hijackers” from Saudi Arabia were CIA agents working for the United States government, according to Dr. Kevin Barrett, an American academic who has been studying the events of 9/11 since late 2003.
“So these 15 Saudi patsies, who were set up to take the blame for 9/11, were in fact CIA agents,” he stated.
