Back to this old topic. There is NO evidence that it was an internal act of terror. There is MUCH MORE (circumstantial versus none) evidence that it was al Qaeda. See below.

*The wife of the publisher of the Florida-based newspaper that was attacked first was the real estate agent who rented the apartment to the hijackers. Remember that news item?

*A doctor who had examined one of the hijackers the summer before the attack observed what he thought were cutaneous anthrax lesions on the al Qaeda guy's leg. Remember that news item?

*Bin Laden purchased anthrax a few years ago.
It was purchased from a company in North Korea. See Yousef Boudansky,_Bin Laden: The Man Who Declared War On America_, at p. 326. It was purchased through the Moro Front, an Indonesian radical group associated with Bin Laden. The Mirror; Egyptian Testimony. Bin Laden's own name was on the purchase order.
