Immediately after Khalid al Mihdhar attended the Kuala Lumpur Convention, in 01/2000, he travelled to San Diego, USA, where he came under the sponsorship and had a close relationship with Anwar al-Awlaki, who served as his spiritual adviser.
Khalid Shaik Mohammed was angered by this and decided to remove Khalid al Mihdhar from The 9/11 plot, but he was overruled by Osama Bin Laden . After the attack on USS Cole in Aden harbor, Yemen, on 10/12/2000, Yemeni authorities suspected that Khalid al Mihdhar had been one of the key planners of the attack, and had been in the country shortly before the time of the attack. Anyhow Khalid al Mihdhar returned to USA by the end of 2000 without arousing any special attention.
On The 9/11 Khalid al Mihdhar, using papers provided by Mohamed el-Atriss, was in the team that hijacked flight 77.
