Al Qaeda in Dan's hometown! Hoax over terror near Oakland FLA & Janet Reno looking for consolation and bit of manly comfort.

(AP - wire) Planner's representatives deny all links yet Tasman's whereabouts are still unknown at this time. Reports also link him to terror hoax suspects on Highway 75 and the Florida election debacle. FBI said to consider him an "interesting guy and a good catch for the ladies” Details to follow....

Guess whose thesis was about renewal of the old quarter of Aleppo, Syria?



It was an urban planning grad student at the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg named Mohamed Atta. He actually has his MUP, folks.

Have you ever noticed that when Dan leaves a room Mohamed pops right in? Yet we have never seen them together.

Mohamed Atta lived in Hamburg from 1992-2000, during which time he studied urban planning at the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg. Investigators believe that he met fellow hijackers Marwan Al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah through an Islamic student group he founded at the university in 1999. Atta visited Syria several times from 1994 to 1999. He spent several weeks in Aleppo during August 1994 conducting research for what would eventually be his thesis about the renewal of part of the old quarter of Aleppo in Syria. Atta returned again in December, making contact with members in the committee of the project to revive old Aleppo. Atta obtains a visa to study in Hamburg at the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg (TUHH). He enrolls in a degree in urban planning in the faculty of engineering.
