Narrative and Notes
ReliableHazmi and Mihdhar met Bayoumi at the Islamic center and took him up on his offer of help. Bayoumi found the two an apartment, helped them sign the lease papers, and assisted them in opening a bank account. He gave them a check for which he was immediately reimburshed, so at no point did Bayoumi provide any money to the two future hijackers.1
