One of the documents I have found while trawling through the 9/11 Commission’s archives is a memo of an interview with the US consular official who issued a visa to alleged Flight 77 pilot Hani Hanjour in 1997 (i.e. before he was a terrorist, we think). I don’t mean to rehash the entire history of the US Consulate in Jeddah, which issued multiple visas to the hijackers (most of which were issued by the same person), but I do want to highlight two points that come across in the memo.

This post lists all the documents we are finding in the 9/11 Commission’s archives about the US Consulate in Jeddah, at which numerous visas were issued to the 9/11 hijackers.The documents have been posted at the 9/11 Document Archive at Scribd. I am reading through the commission’s documents gradually and highlighting interesting information. This post will be updated if I find any more information related to the consulate.
