2001-10-21: FBI FD-302, Interrogation of Samir AbdounAbdoun was at his apartment with Yazeed al Salmi on September 15, 2001. Salmi told Abdoun "I knew they were going to do something, that is why I got married." According to the document, "AL-SALMI told ABDOUN he was joking, then he left the room."
Salmi had been a housemate to Nawaf Al-Hazmi in July 2000. According to the 9/11 Commission report, Chapter 7, "Salmi purchased $4,000 in traveler's checks at a bank in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. On September 5, Hazmi deposited $1,900 of the traveler's checks into his bank account, after withdrawing the same amount in cash. It is possible that Hazmi was simply cashing the traveler's checks for a friend. We do not know; Salmi claims not to remember the transaction. After 9/11, Salmi reportedly confided to Mohdar Abdullah that he had previously known terrorist pilot Hani Hanjour. After living in the same house with Hazmi for about a month, Salmi moved to the La Mesa apartment shared by Abdullah and others."

Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post
