Mohamed Atta and German Intelligence

COMMENT: In our analy­sis of 9/11, we have dis­cussed Mohamed Atta’s asso­ci­a­tion with the Carl Duis­berg Gesellschaft, under the aus­pices of which he trav­eled to the Unit­ed States. Like a group of sim­i­lar pro­grams, it appears to be an off­shoot of, and a por­tal to, the Under­ground Reich.

We have also high­light­ed infor­ma­tion sug­gest­ing a BND role in 9/11. (As vet­er­an lis­ten­ers know, the BND is the Ger­man intel­li­gence ser­vice, the final incar­na­tion of the Rein­hard Gehlen spy out­fit from World War II.)

Anoth­er pos­si­ble BND con­nec­tion to Atta con­cerns his Ger­man lan­guage train­ing in Egypt. He appar­ent­ly learned Ger­man at the Goethe Insti­tute. In our vis­its with pro­fes­sor “Wil­helm Stauf­fer” [a pseu­do­nym] in the 1990’s, we exam­ined his alle­ga­tions that the Goethe Insti­tute is a front for the BND.

Atta’s course work at the Goethe Insti­tute appears to have led to his net­work­ing with his Ger­man spon­sors and the Carl Duis­berg Gesellschaft.

(Note: Wikipedia should be used with extreme cau­tion. There is a great deal of dis­in­for­ma­tion in it. One must check the links. In this case, they check out.)

EXCERPT: . . . . In 1990, Atta grad­u­at­ed with a degree in architecture,[15] and joined the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood-affil­i­at­ed Engi­neers Syn­di­cate organization.[8] For sev­er­al months after grad­u­at­ing, Atta worked at the Urban Devel­op­ment Cen­ter in Cairo, where he worked on archi­tec­tur­al, plan­ning, and build­ing design.[16] In 1990, Atta’s fam­i­ly moved into an 11th floor apart­ment in Giza.[15][17]

Upon grad­u­at­ing from Cairo Uni­ver­si­ty, Atta’s marks were aver­age and insuf­fi­cient to be accept­ed into the Uni­ver­si­ty’s grad­u­ate pro­gram. His father insist­ed he go abroad for grad­u­ate stud­ies, and had Atta enroll in a Ger­man lan­guage pro­gram at the Goethe Insti­tute in Cairo.[18] [Ital­ics added.] In 1992, Atta’s father invit­ed a Ger­man cou­ple over for din­ner while they were vis­it­ing Cairo. The Ger­man cou­ple ran an exchange pro­gram between Ger­many and Egypt, and sug­gest­ed that Atta con­tin­ue his stud­ies in Ger­many. They offered him a tem­po­rary place to live at their house in the city. Mohamed Atta end­ed up in Ger­many two weeks lat­er, in July 1992. . . .

  1. “vol­ume of evi­dence sug­gest­ing that the Ger­man intel­li­gence ser­vices were much clos­er to the poten­tial ter­ror­ists in Ham­burg before Sep­tem­ber 11 than they have want­ed to admit.”

  2. The Ger­man cou­ple are named in The Eleventh Day by Sum­mers and Swan

    Atta may have been secret­ly attend­ing Hel­mut Schmidt Uni­ver­si­ty. Admit­tance to for­eign offi­cer school may have required CDS schol­ar­ship. He could all been recruit­ed through Goethe. Liv­ing in pri­vate res­i­dence may have helped con­ceal which insti­tu­tions Mohamed was attend­ing.

    In the Philip­pines, Mohamed attend­ed a fly­ing club where some mem­bers call each oth­er Nazi nick­names and fly WW! Fokkers. The Air­field hap­pens to be close to Clark AFB and is run by Euro­peans.
