9/11 Hijackers Used Library Computers to Book Flight
The Seattle Times reported on April 29, 2005 that Sept. 11 hijackers, Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar, used library computers to book flight. The two men were aboard American Airlines Flight 77, which crashed into the Pentagon.
According to the Seattle Times, Ken Wainstein, U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, made the disclosure in testimony to the House subcommittee on crime, terrorism and homeland security. The library computer use example was used in Wainstein's argument that Congress should renew provisions of the USA Patriot Act that allow seizure of library records.
