Narrative and Notes
PossibleThe 9-11 commission found the flight worthy of mention among a number of connections between 9-11 operatives and Iran, Hezbollah and their allies, but they found no evidence Hezbollah or Iran was aware of the 9-11 plot. Al-Mihdhar may have traveled further within Iran to a point near the Afghan border.1
