WikiLeaks: Did al-Qaeda plot a fifth attack on 9/11?

A group of Qataris suspected of conducting surveillance on the targets of 9/11, and providing “support” to the plotters of the atrocities, were due to fly to Washington on the eve of the attacks, the Daily Telegraph can reveal.

The disclosure, in US diplomatic cables obtained by WikiLeaks, has raised suspicions that the three men were preparing to be a fifth suicide team, but aborted their attack at the last minute. Instead of boarding a domestic flight to the US capital they instead returned to Doha, via London.
