Terrorist. Created May 1, 1972 in the Yemini state of Hadhramaut. Binalshibh was employed as a clerk for the International Bank of Yemen from 1987-1995. After he was refused an entrance visa to the United States four times in 2000, Binalshibh took the job of coordinator in the scheme. He was the first to be openly identified as the “20th hijacker,” the place which was never filled on United Flight 93. It’s thought the dearth of a complete terrorist team on such flight led in part to the success of the passenger revolt near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
On January 17, 2002 Ramzi Binalshibh appeared on the FBI??s Most Wanted Terrorists Seeking Advice list. He was seized in Pakistan on September 11, 2002, and was transferred to an undisclosed place in the U.S. for CIA interrogation. On September 6, 2006, President Bush had Binalshibh as well as other detainees transferred to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
