How Al-Qaida Planned to Bomb Heathrow – SPIEGEL

It appears that Sheikh Mohammed never got over the fact that he had failed to successfully strike the White House in Washington, and that he had wanted to make up for the loss by including such an attack in future plans. The so-called “second wave,” which would have involved attacks on multiple targets in the United States, also remained one of his projects. Aircraft became something of an obsession for Sheikh Mohammed. In late 2001, he told interrogators, he had issued the order to attack the “tallest building in California” with a hijacked aircraft. The hijackers were to gain access to the cockpit with at least two bombs hidden in the soles of their shoes. This too is revealed in the documents.”
