Profile: Pedro Rubira

Pedro Rubira was a participant or observer in the following events:

According to a later report by Agence France-Presse, Spanish prosecutor Pedro Rubira says that 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta is in Madrid, Spain, on this day. (Agence France Presse 6/1/2005) He previously met co-conspirator Ramzi bin al-Shibh in Spain in July (see July 8-19, 2001) and bin al-Shibh is in Madrid at this time (see September 5, 2001). (MSNBC 12/11/2001; McDermott 2005, pp. 230) However, there are no other known reports of Atta being in Madrid in September 2001. For example, no such trip is mentioned in the 9/11 Commission report (although the Agence France-Presse article comes one year after the 9/11 Commission’s report). (9/11 Commission 7/24/2004)
