Courtesey of Mindanao....
On October 11, 2005, I published a report on this blog about a terrorist named Hilarion del Rosario Santos III, alias Ahmad Santos. Santos, upon his capture told authorities that the 9/11 terrorists had gone through training in the Philippines. As far as I have ever heard, this statement has never been verified, and in fact I don’t think many people take it seriously.

Over the past few days, a local Cable TV station, ABS-CBN News Channel (commonly called ANC), which is similar to a local CNN type station has been airing advertisements for an upcoming special, which is entitled “9/11: The Philippine Connection”. Now, I am not sure, but it would seem by the title of the report that ANC has uncovered some sort of connection between the 9/11 plot and the Philippines.

As of now, I can only think of two things that could possibly connect the Philippines and 9/11:

1. The claim by Santos, as noted above; and

2. Terrorist Ramsey Yousef, who was responsible for the first bombing of the World Trade Center in New York was captured in the Philippines. In addition to being responsible for the basement parking lot bombing of the WTC, Yousef had planned another plot where planes from Asia would be used to attack the USA, similar to what the terrorists did on 9/11. In addition, Yousef’s uncle is captured terrorist, and 9/11 mastermind Sheik Mohammad.
