Mubarak Interview

Q: How do you explain the large number of Gulf Arabs and Egyptians alleged to have been involved with the teams that attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon? Is it significant that the head of this suicide team, Mohamed Atta, is Egyptian, as was reported?

A: I find it hard to believe that people who were learning to fly in Florida could, within a year and a half, fly large commercial airlines and hit with accuracy the towers of the World Trade Center which would appear, to the pilot from the air, the size of a pencil. Only a professional pilot could carry out this mission, not someone who learned to fly for 18 months in Florida. For your information, a licence to fly commercial planes has many conditions, in terms of study and training. Many hours of flying are needed to qualify as a co-pilot, let alone a pilot, of such planes.
