Так же характерно, что найдены они якобы прямо в министерстве обороны. У талибов была своя боевая авиация, так что обучать людей в сельской школе было бы странно. Да и зачем было тащить эти объявления в Кабул? Слишком похоже на утонувший чеченский полк...
Еще более характерно, что нелепая "сенсация" насчет находки каких-то материалов в Чечне, с помпой выданная в первые дни после 11 сентября, была не только полностью проигнорирована на Западе, но и не вспоминается у нас.
Sept. 11 Probe to Have Access to Taliban Documents
Fla. Flight School Ads Reportedly Found in Papers Left in Kabul by Fleeing Officials

Federal officials said yesterday that they have not seen documents left in the Afghan capital by fleeing Taliban officials but expect they will be shared with U.S. law enforcement investigating the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
The New York Times reported yesterday from Kabul that a house used by the Taliban Defense Ministry was left littered with papers, including a page of advertising from Flying magazine that lists flight schools in Florida.
Several of the Sept. 11 hijackers attended flight schools in Florida, including Mohamed Atta, the alleged leader, investigators say.
Among the flight school ads found in Kabul was one for Phoenix East Aviation in Daytona Beach, which FBI agents have visited since the attacks. Phoenix East has about 200 students at a time, about half from overseas and many of those from the Middle East.
Andre Maye, the school's admissions director, said Phoenix East has given the FBI access to records of all its applicants, students and graduates. Maye said agents had checked Phoenix East records against a list of hundreds of potential suspects.
"They came with a big list," Maye said, adding that he knows of no matches between Phoenix East records and suspected Sept. 11 perpetrators or accessories. "We've opened our doors to them."
The school also reports suspicious applications to the Immigration and Naturalization Service.
Maye said he talks to the FBI at least two or three times a week to "get their blessing" before enrolling any applicants who could be considered suspicious.
"Everyone's so paranoid," Maye said. "We're paranoid. We're trying to work with them as much as possible."
