How did they know it was Bin Laden right away?
    #2543006 - 04/09/04 12:31 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

There may be a good explanation for this. Hell, I may have even heard it before, but if I have then i've forgotten it.

On 9-11 we knew it was Bin Laden right away. How did we know it was Bin Laden right away if there was never any indication that Al Quaeda would attack us with planes?

Seriously. I don't know why everyone knew it was Bin Laden right away if "there was no way we could have predicted 9-11".

Help me understand.

He never actually sent a video to Aljazeera and claimed responsibility, it's all bull shit, right?

Hey, thats just how good our intelligence is...

The day after it happened they had the complete story, so complete it has not changed since.

Is there anything our intelligence services cannot know?

I'm pretty sure that I remember the media saying that it was Bin Laden the day of the tragedy.

My question is, if we could never in our wildest dreams have seen it coming then how did we automatically know it was Bin Laden?

My memory is that they weren't saying it was bin laden for sure the very first day, just that he was the prime suspect.

the question is, how did they conclusively prove it was him later on? I've wondered that too, since many orgs tried to claim the attack was their own if I remember correctly. I guess they already had intelligence on some of those who ended up being hi-jackers (remember how they were actually being followed or something?) and knew of connections between them and al-qaeda?

Don't you remeber the whole letter and the videos by Bin Laden claiming responsibility?
Plus Bin Laden bombed the basement of the WTC in '92 or whatever.

1) other groups claimed responsibility too

2) just because he bombed the wtc doesnt mean he therefore planned the attacks.

i believe he coordinated the attacks. im just pretty sure there was better evidence for it than this.

it was in the 80's and there again there was no proof that binLaden was behind that attack... they have allowed him access to this country many times since the first WTC bombing

How did we know it was Bin Laden right away

We didn't, but he made one hell of a good scapegoat. The joke's on us! Are you laughing yet?

No? How about one more war? You'll be laughing then!

I was listening to the radio, Imus on WABC, when Warner Wolf called from his apartment to report that a plane had screwed into the building. At first he just thought it was a small plane but then it became clear it was more. I was riveted to the radio the whole time. Then another plane came. The first thing I thought was ......Bin Laden....... I had no doubt

I don't think he ever actually claimed that HE had planned the attacks. The video said, or at least the translation we were given said, that he supported the attacks and was pleased by them. I could be wrong here, but I'm pretty sure that he didn't actually come out and say that he pulled it off.

Plus Bin Laden bombed the basement of the WTC in '92 or whatever.

I think Ramsey Yusef was the mind behind the earlier bombing. He apparently DID have connections with Al Queda...but if my memory is right then Yusef himself planned and carried out the bombing.

The one on the left claimed responsibilty for 9/11.. The one on the right is Osama Bin Laden. He?s probably been dead for years.

And one of them was found alive in Marocco few weeks after. I guess he still has trouble to prove he was not on one of those planes. :grin:

My guess is they were watching them and knew they were on the plane, but didn't have enough proof, or reason to believe that they were going to hijack those planes.
