The following is a statement by Paul Thompson and the Center for Cooperative Research (the “Center”). Mr. Thompson is the author of a book entitled The Terror Timeline, as well as a publication entitled Complete 911 Timeline, which is available on the Center’s website at www.cooperativeresearch.org.
The book and website contain statements that Mohammed Hussein Al Amoudi has funded, supported, or is in some way associated with the terrorist activities of Osama bin Laden and the al Qaeda terrorist network. They also state that Mr. Al Amoudi is a defendant in a litigation commenced by the families of the victims of the 9/11 attack in the United States of America.
The references in the book and website were based on previously published reports that were subsequently retracted. We are aware of no evidence to suggest that Mr. Al Amoudi has ever supported, advocated, financed, or has otherwise been linked to, Osama bin Laden, the Al Qaeda terrorist network, terrorism or terrorist groups. His name has been withdrawn as a defendant in the 9/11 litigation and the case against him dismissed. We are further informed that Mr. Al Amoudi was not an investor in the El Shifa chemical plant; has never been affiliated with the Al-Haramain Foundation; and does not have (and never has had) any involvement in Delta Oil.
We have deleted all entries related to Mr. Al Amoudi from the Complete 9-11 Timeline on the website and will be deleting the references in the revised printing of The Terror Timeline book.
We therefore retract the statements and apologize to Mr. Al Amoudi for any embarrassment or damage to his personal or professional reputation that such statements may have caused him.
