December 24-31, 1999: Hijacked Flight Leads to Freeing of Future 9/11 Funder      Complete 911 Timeline

      
Hijackers threaten the Indian Airlines plane, under Taliban supervision.
An Indian Airlines flight is hijacked and flown to Afghanistan where 155 passengers are held hostage for eight days. They are freed in return for the release of three militants held in Indian prisons. One of the hostages is killed. One of the men freed in the exchange is 9/11 paymaster Saeed Sheikh. [BBC, 12/31/99] Another freed militant is Maulana Masood Azhar. Azhar emerges in Pakistan a few days later, and tells a crowd of 10,000, “I have come here because this is my duty to tell you that Muslims should not rest in peace until we have destroyed America and India.” [Associated Press, 1/5/00] He then tours Pakistan for weeks under the protection of the ISI. [Vanity Fair, 8/02] The ISI and Saeed helps Azhar form a new Islamic militant group called Jaish-e-Mohammed, and Azhar is soon plotting attacks again. [Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, 3/3/02; Washington Post, 2/8/03; Guardian, 7/16/02]
People and organizations involved: Pakistan Directorate for Inter-Services Intelligence, Maulana Masood Azhar, Saeed Sheikh, Central Intelligence Agency, Jaish-e-Mohammed
          

August-October 2001: Britain Seeks Indian Assistance in Catching Saeed Sheikh      Complete 911 Timeline

       British intelligence asks India for legal assistance in catching Saeed Sheikh sometime during August 2001. Saeed has been openly living in Pakistan since 1999 and has even traveled to Britain at least twice during that time, despite having kidnapped Britons and Americans in 1993 and 1994. [Vanity Fair, 8/02; Times of London, 4/21/02] According to the Indian media, informants in Germany tell the internal security service there that Saeed helped fund hijacker Mohamed Atta. [Frontline, 10/6/01] On September 23, it is revealed, without explanation, that the British have asked India for help in finding Saeed. [Times of London, 9/23/01] Saeed Sheikh's role in training the hijackers and financing the 9/11 attacks soon becomes public knowledge, though some elements are disputed. [CNN, 10/6/01; CNN, 10/8/01; Daily Telegraph, 9/30/01] The Gulf News claims that the US freezes the assets of Pakistani militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed on October 12, 2001, because it has established links between Saeed Sheikh and 9/11. [Gulf News, 10/11/01] However, in October, an Indian magazine notes, “Curiously, there seems to have been little international pressure on Pakistan to hand [Saeed] over” [Frontline, 10/6/01] , and the US does not formally ask Pakistan for help to find Saeed until January 2002.

December 13, 2001: ISI-Connected Militants Attack Indian Parliament      Complete 911 Timeline

       The Indian Parliament building in New Delhi is attacked by Islamic militants. Fourteen people, including the five attackers, are killed. India blames the Pakistani militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed for the attacks. Twelve days later, Maulana Masood Azhar, head of Jaish-e-Mohammed, is arrested by Pakistan and his group is banned. He is freed one year later. [Agence France-Presse, 12/25/01; Christian Science Monitor, 12/16/02] The Parliament attack leads to talk of war, even nuclear war, between Pakistan and India, until President Musharraf cracks down on militant groups in early January. [Daily Telegraph, 12/28/01; Wall Street Journal, 1/3/02; Guardian, 5/25/02] It appears that Saeed Sheikh and Aftab Ansari, working with the ISI, were also involved in the attacks. [Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, 3/3/02; Vanity Fair, 8/02]
People and organizations involved: Saeed Sheikh, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Maulana Masood Azhar, Aftab Ansari, Pakistan Directorate for Inter-Services Intelligence
