On December 24th, 2002, the NY Post reported, that Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri who researched Web sites about deadly chemicals - while earmarking almanac pages on major U.S. dams, reservoirs and railroads - was charged with lying about phone calls he allegedly made to a suspected financier of 9/11. Shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, agents learned that Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri, 37, of Qatar, had telephoned the United Arab Emirates several times between September and November of that year. The phone number was used by Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi, who has been accused of transferring thousands of dollars to the hijackers before the attacks, authorities said. Al-Hawsawi has been named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a pending indictment against Moussaoui,HabibZacarias, the so-called "20th hijacker." When the FBI interviewed al-Marri later at his Peoria, Ill., home, he "falsely denied knowing al-Hawasi and ever calling the telephone number," prosecutors allege. Al-Marri is accused of falsely denying that he had been in the United States between 1991 and Sept. 10, 2001. http://www.nypost.com/news/nationalnews/65382.htm http://www.dailycamera.com/bdc/nation_world_news/article/0,1713,BDC_2420_1629906,00.html NOTE: Al-Hasawi's other alias is Sheikh Saeed (->), arrested in 2002 for the kidnapping of Daniel Pearl, Wall Street Journal.
