Has anyone done a roundup of suspected Al Qaeda task forces on 9/11? I've heard claims that they had teams all over the country, but where can I find the official lowdown?

I'm not sure. Gunaratna bases his claim about the Brit. team on an interview with a terrorist captured by the Indians months later; claims he was trained in Australian flight schools. Unless you had similar access to debriefings of captured member of hijack teams don't know if you could put the list together.

I read your item about the targeting of Heathrow on 9/11 with interest. This claim was made by Rohan Gunaratna in his book, but I believe he has subsequently said he was mistaken. As far as I know, it has not been made anywhwere else -- or has it? I'd be grateful for your view. I myself reached a slightly different conclusion abut the sunday times story, as you can see from my website diary at www.melaniephillips.com.

Best wishes
