Joseph Iskandar said his son, Waleed, always carried his cards in his wallet and were ‘miraculously’ returned one year later, but he never questioned where and how the credit cards were found amidst the devastation of the towering inferno.

More miraculous 9/11 evidence has turned up, as Joseph Iskandar, the father of Flight 11 passenger, Waleed, said not one but incredibly four of his son’s credit cards were found in perfect condition by the Ground Zero Recovery Team.
Originally Iskandar reported receiving only one credit card, a perfectly intact Wells Fargo ATM card, but now three more cards mysteriously surfaced, either in a “miraculous? stroke of luck, considering the devastation in the towering inferno, or possibly another clear sign of more planted evidence placed by the FBI at all disaster locations on 9/11.
Iskandar never doubted the credibility of the evidence, also becoming another in the long line of flight passenger family members who have never questioned the government’s 9/11 story.
This comes in stark contrast to the other group of Ground Zero family members, a group made up of literally hundreds, if not thousands, who openly say 9/11 was an inside job or who publicly call for a new investigation. In contrast, the flight families either remain incredibly silent or, like Iskandar, have echoed the government story like a bunch of parrots in a cage.
Regarding the new evidence, Iskandar, 73, a Lebanese native who immigrated to the U.S. in 1980, told the Arctic Beacon Monday in an extended telephone conversation from his Northridge, California, home, the three other cards returned to him included Frequent Flyer credit cards from United, American and Delta airlines.
“When I returned to Ground Zero for the first anniversary of 9/11, I was told by some men that they had found four of Waleed’s credit cards, all in good condition. They never told me how they found it or where but just sent me the cards,” said Iskandar, adding he never questioned the identity of the men or the credibility of the cards, the items being mailed to his home several weeks later.
“Waleed used to keep his credit cards in his wallet and although it was a bit unusual considering the devastating crash, I just considered it to be a miracle from God. I then took the cards and they are included in a memorial at his burial site.”
Another person closely following the chain of strange 9/11 evidence, who wants to remain anonymous, had this to say about the Iskandar credit cards:
“I guess his ATM card must have slid out of his wallet, flown out of his pocket, then out of his seat and around the seat belt, then through the exploding jet fuel and debris, out of the building, then to be found picture perfect!?
Although Iskandar believes the cards were God-sent, others think the FBI had a dirty hand in planting tainted evidence, since besides the incredible find of not one – but four – of Waleed’s cards coming from inside his wallet, many other pieces of miraculous evidence has also surfaced.
The Arctic Beacon recently reported Capt. Jim Ingledue of the Virginia Beach Fire Department and 9/11 first responder finding the completely unblemished California ID card, driver’s license and wedding ring of one of the Flight 77 passengers amidst the devastation and rubble at the Pentagon.
Passenger Suzanne Callex’s husband, Frank, of San Martin, California, verified the return of his wife’s items, but like Iskandar didn’t question or even seek verification of the credibility of the evidence.
Although Calley had no questions, Capt. Ingledue, a firm believe of the official government 9/11 story, called it “highly strange and remarkable? to find this type of evidence in the Pentagon meltdown.
“I remember thinking it was highly unusual and strange to find a perfectly intact ID card amidst all that devastation,” said Capt. Ingledue, a Pentagon first responder who arrived two days after 9/11 and spent a total of seven days in search and rescue.
In a telephone conversation two weeks ago from Virginia Beach, Capt. Ingledue added the find was “so strange? he kept it in his pocket for an hour instead of immediately turning the evidence over to FBI agents like he was instructed.
“When we arrived at the Pentagon, we were advised to turn over any personal effects or possible evidence immediately over to the FBI,” said Capt. Ingledue, who admitted the find was unusual, but doesn’t subscribe to any wild-eyed 9/11 conspiracy theories. “I kept this bit of evidence with me a little longer, I don’t know why, but I guess I thought it was strange to find an ID in perfect shape when everything else around me was devastated.”
Besides the possibility that Calley and Iskandar’s ID cards and credit cards were planted by the FBI, a similar question has been ignored by the state sponsored press and authorities the day after 9/11 when miraculously the unscathed passport of Satam Al Suqami, one of the alleged 19 Arab terrorists, turned up several blocks from Ground Zero.
Although ABC News and the Associated Press played up the importance of the Suqami passport, linking 9/11 to the Arab hijackers, serious questions were never raised in the press or by the 9/11 Commission as to the credibility and authenticity of the find.
Critics now contend with the Calley and Iskandar cards, all turning up in perfect condition like the passport, it only adds to the necessity of launching a full scale investigation into the possibility that all three items were planted by the FBI in an attempt to hoodwink the American people into believing the official 9/11 story, a story that has so many holes that it makes a perfectly good piece of Swiss cheese look like a solid object.
And to add even more fuel to the fire, numerous other accounts of suspicious evidence has also conveniently surfaced, linking the alleged hijackers to 9/11, including two of Mohamed Atta’s bags also found right after 9/11.
Not only did authorities find the luggage but they conveniently contained a handheld electronic flight computer, a simulator procedures manual for Boeing 757 and 767 aircraft, two videotapes relating to “air tours” of the Boeing 757 and 747 aircraft, a slide-rule flight calculator, a copy of the Koran, Atta’s passport, his will, his international driver’s license, a religious cassette tape, airline uniforms, a letter of recommendation, “education related documentation” and a note to other hijackers on how to mentally prepare for the hijacking.
Again the state sponsored media jumped on the story, running in the Associated Press, Boston Globe and other papers in the weeks following 9/11, further perpetuating the government’s 9/11 myth without even asking the question of whether the evidence was credible or possibly planted by the FBI.
Regarding the Iskandar case, what’s even more unusual than the credit cards, is Waleed, a 34-year-old Harvard graduate, was never even listed as an original Flight 11 passenger either on the American Airlines flight manifest or the several different conflicting passenger list versions made public by major media outlets.
In fact, his name first appeared on a passenger list one year later in an unverified list given by a media outlet on the first year anniversary, but continued not to be listed on other distributed lists by other large media outlets.
In response to his son being left off the Flight 11 list, Iskandar said:
“I contacted American the day after the tragedy and told them not to list my son as my wife, Samia, and I were grieving terribly and we didn’t want to be bothered by the press. Later after we realized how big this whole incident became, we had him put back on the list.”
Iskandar said he also kept his son’s flight itinerary as a keepsake, adding his son was on his way from Boston to Los Angeles to tell his parents about his recent engagement to his new fianc
