One of the suspects in the hi-jackings of US jetliners this past Tuesday, was subject to an Israeli extradition request, but the United States turned the request down! Story is at:[url] http://worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=24517[/url] Here's a blurb from the article - "Hijack suspect Mohamed Atta and his cousin Marwan Ashehri, two of the 19 hijackers named by the U.S. Justice Department, as perpetrators of the New York World Trade Center and Pentagon, Washington suicide attacks, have been variously described as Egyptian, United Arab Emirates and Saudi nationals. "Yet, according to DEBKA-Net-Weekly, they were actually Arab-Americans. "Hamburg investigators said two of the terrorists were Mohamed Atta, 33, and Marwan Alshehhi, 23, whose training at a Florida flight school has been the focus of intense FBI probes this week. The German investigators said the two were from the United Arab Emirates. "Atta, 33, was implicated in a series of bus bombings that hit Jerusalem in 1996. He evaded Israeli capture by going to ground among his relatives in America. [u]The U.S. authorities at the time turned down Israel’s request to extradite this U.S. national[/u]. He is reportedly the scion of a prominent, affluent family in El-Bireh, Ramallah, one of whose members is a former mayor and most of whom carry American citizenship, as do many elite Palestinian families in Ramallah and its environs." Since the extradition request occurred in 1996, during the Clinton Administration, the only reason that I can figure why the US turned down the extradition request by Israel, was that the Atta Family made a hefty donation to the President Clinton Reelection Campaign.

Just one in a long series of fuck-ups.
