FBI: Bin Laden Not Wanted for 9-11?
by Enver Masud

The FBI's "Most Wanted Terrorists" web page does not state that Bin Laden is 
wanted for the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the 

The FBI page states: "Usama Bin Laden is wanted in connection with the August 7,
1998, bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and 
Nairobi, Kenya. These attacks killed over 200 people. In addition, Bin Laden is 
a suspect in other terrorist attacks throughout the world."

When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on the FBI's web page, Rex Tomb of 
the FBI's public affairs unit is reported to have said, "The reason why 9/11 is 
not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden's Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no 
hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11."

In the months leading up to the Septmber 11, 2001 attack, it is reported, the 
Taliban "outlined various ways bin Laden could be dealt with. He could be turned
over to the EU, killed by the Taliban, or made available as a target for Cruise 
missiles." The Bush administration did not accept the Taliban's offer.

"On September 20 2001," according to the Guardian, "the Taliban offered to hand 
Osama bin Laden to a neutral Islamic country for trial if the US presented them 
with evidence that he was responsible for the attacks on New York and 
Washington. The US rejected the offer."

On September 23, 2001 the BBC reported that four of the hijack "suspects" - 
Waleed Al Shehri, Abdulaziz Al Omari, Saeed Alghamdi, and possibly Khalid Al 
Midhar - were alive, and that FBI Director Robert Mueller acknowledged "the 
identity of several of the suicide hijackers is in doubt."

Bin Laden, in a September 28, 2001 interview with the Pakistani newspaper Ummat,
is reported to have said: "I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the 
United States."

Skeptics dismiss as fake a video tape found in a house in Jalalabad, 
Afghanistan, which alleges to show Bin Laden confessing to the September 11 
attacks. In a December 20, 2001, broadcast by German TV channel Das Erste "two 
independent translators and an expert on oriental studies found the White 
House's translation not only to be inaccurate, but manipulative."

FBI Director Robert Mueller, in a speech at the Commonwealth Club on April 19, 
2002, said: "In our investigation, we have not uncovered a single piece of paper
- either here in the United States, or in the treasure trove of information that
has turned up in Afghanistan and elsewhere - that mentioned any aspect of the 
September 11 plot."

The evidence against Bin Laden, promised by Secretary of State Colin Powell in 
September 2001, has yet to be made available to the public.

Five years ago, President Bush pledged to capture Osama bin Laden "dead or
