An Iranian man known as Ali S. in a German jail awaiting deportation repeatedly phones US law enforcement to warn of an imminent attack on the WTC in early September. He calls it “an attack that will change the world.” After a month of badgering his prison guards, he is finally able to call the White House 14 times in the days before the attack. He then tries to send a fax to President Bush, but is denied permission hours before the 9/11 attacks. German police later confirm the calls. Prosecutors later will say Ali had no foreknowledge and his forebodings were just a strange coincidence. They will say he is mentally unstable.

Deutsche Presse-Agentur vom 13.9.2001:

“ An Iranian man awaiting deportation in Germany tried to warn the United States that the terrorist attacks which shook the nation on Tuesday were about to be carried out, according to press reports. The Hanover daily „Neue Presse“, in a report published in its Friday edition, said the man, being held in detention near this northern German city, had told U.S. intelligence officials by telephone that attacks would take place this week. However, they had hung up the phone when the 29-year-old man said he was being detained. Just hours before the kamikaze airplane attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington he had asked in vain to be allowed to send a fax to U.S. President George W. Bush.The man had for the past month insisted that he had important information for the United States and must urgently pass it on by telephone. The German authorities had eventually allowed him to make the call, the paper wrote.“
