In the wake of the first World Trade Center attack in 1993, the Clinton administration sowed the seeds of destruction when it treated the attack as a crime instead of what it was – an act of war. The good news is that the bombing helped federal officials uncover the infamous landmarks “day of terror” plot before it was launched. Ten individuals – including the “Blind Sheikh” were prosecuted and convicted.
The bad news is that there were 172 unindicted co-conspirators, to include Osama bin Laden (#95) and Ali Mohamed (#109), a figure Shoebat.com has identified as perhaps the most EMBARRASSING Muslim spy in U.S. history.
While neither bin Laden nor Ali Mohamed are roaming free today, many of the other 172 named co-conspirators are, to include Siraj Wahhaj, whose Brooklyn mosque was frequented by the “Blind Sheikh” several times and Mohammed Al Hanooti, who would later become the Imam at the notorious Dar al-Hijrah mosque where Anwar al-Awlaki served as an Imam there. Today, Al Hanooti serves as a Mufti at Dar al-Hijrah, as Shoebat.com has reported. Wahhajj has also delivered sermons at Dar al-Hijrah:
It was Shoebat.com that also revealed Bill Clinton’s dealings with Hanooti’s boss at Dar al-Hijrah, Bassam Estwani, who hired Hanooti in 1995, the same year he was identified as a co-conspirator in the “Landmarks” plot. That was also the same year that Bill Clinton began welcoming Estwani into the White House on a near annual basis.
Today, much is being made about the “Stand with the Prophet” conference being held in Garland, TX. The rally is supposed to show solidarity in opposition to the Paris terror attacks. There’s a small problem. Wahhaj is one of the speakers. The producer of the conference Imam Malik Mujahid recently appeared on the O’Reilly Factor and was asked about his decision to allow Wahhaj to speak. Note his response. Mujahid champions the fact that Wahhaj was an UNindicted co-conspirator, clearly mocking the intent behind listing Wahhaj as one of the 172, in some ways, rightfully so:
The George W. Bush administration continued the practice of prosecuting terrorists and letting so many more go. Take a look at the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terrorism financing trial in the history of the United States. Eight Defendants were found guilty on all counts (more than 100). That’s the good news. Again, the bad news was that there were 306 UNindicted co-conspirators (some named more than once). Unbelievably, Mohamed Al Hanooti was among them. Yes, the same Al-Hanooti who today serves as the Mufti at Dar al-Hijrah and who was an unindicted co-conspirator in the “Landmarks” trial, was again identified as an accomplice.
…and he led a house of worship.
Those two trials represent 18 convictions and 478 co-conspirators who never faced indictment, illustrating perfectly why treating Islamic terrorism as criminal activity is a fatally flawed formula.
As Imams like Al Hanooti, Wahhaj and Anwar al-Awlaki were preaching in Estwani’s mosque, Estwani was rubbing elbows with the Clintons in the Oval Office:
