On Tuesday, secret documents leaked via WikiLeaks revealed the FBI is on the hunt for four additional suspected terrorists in connection with the 9/11 attacks. The documents, sent on February 11, 2010, from the American Embassy in Doha, Qatar, to the U.S. Secretary of State, the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, and the CIA, reports that four previously unnamed men may have also been involved in the September 11 attacks. Qataris Meshal Alhajri, Fahad Abdulla, and Ali Alfehaid allegedly carried out surveillance on the World Trade Center, White House, and Pentagon three weeks before the attack. The three were also booked on a flight from Los Angeles to Washington a day before the attacks but never boarded. Instead, a day later, they flew to London and then Qatar, though their current locations are unknown.

The WikiLeaks documents state that hotel cleaning staff in Los Angeles grew suspicious of the men "because they noticed pilot type uniforms, several laptops and several cardboard boxes addressed to Syria, Jerusalem, Afghanistan and Jordan in the room on previous cleaning visits."

It was while they were in California that the three met up with UAE citizen Mohamed Al Mansoori. Mansoori is suspected of more broadly aiding in the 9/11 plot. His current whereabouts are unknown. And while the three Qatari men were on a leaked list of 300 people wanted for questioning after 9/11, Mansoori was not. According to the newly leaked FBI document, Mansoori is under investigation for "possible involvement in the September 11, 2001 attacks. He is suspected of aiding people who entered the US before the attacks to conduct surveillance of possible targets and providing other support to the hijackers.”

So far only one person — Zacarias Moussaoui — has been convicted of involvement in the 9/11 attacks. Moussaoui, the alleged twelfth hijacker, was sentenced to life in prison.
