One of the first questions to emerge after the events of 9/11 was where and how did the hijackers learn to fly? Journalist Daniel Hopsicker actually went out and did the research and what he found was nothing short of shocking in its scope and importance but what was even more shocking that none of his finds seemed to interest the authorities.
For example he found that Rudy Dekker, the owner of the school and the airport were Mohamed Atta the ringleader of the alleged 9/11 hijackers took his flying lessons was connected to the international drug trade. He also found that Mohamed Atta loved booze, drugs and lived together with a girl who earned her money in the sex industry.Over the last 10 years Daniel has been vilified and ignored but on the 14th of December he was finally able to announce that Rudy Dekker, the man who was on every TV screen in the days after 9/11 cementing the story of the hijackers and how they were able to be in the US taking flying lessons while nobody was able to catch them before they perpetrated the attack on 9/11, was arrested for drug trafficking.
Here is Daniel Hopsicker’s story from the man himself:

Before relating the details of ‘what went down in Houston,’ a little ‘back story’ on Dekkers, who is an historically important figure:
In the aftermath of the 9/11 attack, it was Rudi Dekkers’ running account of the character and personality of Mohamed Atta and the other terrorists which transfixed a nation and the world. He was everywhere on television.
