Mohamed Atta

This song dedicated to Mohamed Atta was written after reading the Australian Broadcast Corporation interviews by Liz Jackson with Ralph Bodenstein (in Beirut. Lebanon on Oct. 15, 2001)
and Volker Hauth (in Hamburg, Germany on Oct. 21, 2001), who were buddies with Mohamed Atta in their college days. They simply could not imagine him being the person described in the US Press.

Research by Daniel Hopsicker of Mad Cow News "Welcome to Terrorland" revealed a Mohamed devoid of religion and addicted to sex & drugs, who had Visas and US military training at Huffman Aviation & Pensacola Naval Base in Florida. What is myth? What is true?
Links are provided the lyrics for two Australian Broadcasting Corporation interviews by Liz Jackson in October 2001, and to Daniel Hopsicker's reseach in Florida right after the 9/11 attacks, "Welcome To Terrorland". The glaring opposite characterizations of Mohamed Atta were the genesis of this reflective song for truth and justice. Was the "suspect" possibly an "asset" or a "patsy"?
The chord progression is a simple strum of this chord progression: G Am D G 3 times with the last line being G Am D Em.

His name was Mohamed, El-Amir Atta
Cutest babe in the world to his ma and his pa
They were hard working people, did all that they could
To teach him right from wrong like any good parent would

He was born in the land of King Tut's pyramid
Did he grow up to do what they say that he did?
Did he murder 3,000 by flying a plane…
into the World Trade Center with rage in his brain?.

When he was a young boy, he did well in school
He was taught to be kind in a world that was cruel
His father and mother raised him to be good
What it meant to be Muslim was well understood..

A generous, peace-loving community
But all that was threatened by the economy
By the great "Western System", the greed and suffering it sows
By the great "New World Order" they seek to impose..

He studied Urban Planning in old Germany
He dreamed ancient Egypt could be modern and free
He worked with Ralph Bodenstein and Volker Hauth
It was winter '94 when they flew east and south

They'd landed a project in "Old Town Cairo"
They were so young and hopeful -so long ago
They gathered information on the economy
On the effects of decisions on the people they'd see..

On historic preservation, polluting industry
High class corruption and vast poverty
Strawberries for export instead of wheat for the poor
It had to be imported from the great US store

Storm troopers were storming the old neighborhoods
Kickin' down doors, killing just cause they could
The Egyptian, Israeli, and US ruling class
Made plans that were clashing with the Muslim mass...

And up from the masses there rose with a rush
A great wave of resistance they would brutally crush
They rounded up thousands, imprisoned them too
They tortured and murdered like state terrorists do

Mohamed begged his colleagues, "Please don't speak out"
It might get him "criminalized", No job come about…
'Cause he dreamed social planning could be done with a heart
But the wolves of the world would soon tear that apart!

{-Instrumental interlude -}

In Florida he was a drunkard, a "cavorter" about
Buying sex with the call girls, no longer devout!
In Pensacola US Naval Station..
And Huffman Aviation, what "training" was done?

How'd he get a Visa to get in the USA?
Who enabled this danger, and who paid his way?
And what was his mission? Who was he working for?
Was he really a hijacker? How can we be sure?.

Yes, what happened later to the kid who could care?
Was his growing awareness just too much to bare?
Did he "crack up"? -or "link up" with a very bad crowd?
Was he a Al Qaida asset the CIA allowed?

Yes, what happened later to Mohamed Atta?
Named as "chief suspect" of a terror fatwah…
But was it a "fatwah" or "special ops" design?
For who had the means to pull off such a crime?

{-Instrumental interlude -}

His name was Mohamed El-Amir Atta
Can we tell the truth from the propaganda?
Was he an "attacker" or a "patsy" to blame?
Was somebody else maybe using his name?

His name was Mohamed El-Amir Atta
Can you tell the truth from the propaganda?
If you get your "truth" from the war profiteers,
The truth of your prophets may well disappear!

Storm troopers are storming, the old neighborhoods
In Baghdad and Basra and Fallujah there's blood!
Compradors of Iraq and the US ruling class
Made plans to wage war on the great Muslim mass

Do you know what they're planning to do in your name?
In the name of "Democracy", it's a sham and a shame!
'Cause all of this killing comes out of the claims
of the "Official Story" and whoever it blames!
