9/11..The official bin Ladin family's website domain expires

On September 11, 2001, the United States experienced the most significant and violent attack by terrorists even on its own soil. The terrible events that ensued have been linked to the mastermind of Osama Binladin, the leader of the group Al-Qaeda. Although the Binladin family group denounced their fallen son and any political affiliation of Al-Qaeda, on the same day as the terrorist attacks, the Binladin family website and all of their web pages, links, emails and domain name EXPIRED -- on September 11, 2001.Shocked and curious about the possible connection between Binladin and the war on America, I, Christopher Curry, a technology consultant, began to investigate these events via the net.I found a number of websites linked to Osama Binladin and began to notice some startling parallels: the largest and most unbelievable was the expiration of a website owned by the Binladin family:" -

Date with Destiny?
"A web domain registered to the Saudi Binladin Group (the megabucks corporation uses the alternate spelling of the family name) raises questions about what role, if any, the family has played in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.The domain was registered on Sept. 11, 2000, with a preset expiration date of Sept. 11, 2001, according to a technician with VeriSign, an Internet domain registry service formerly known as Network Solutions.Coincidence?Or was this website set up to start the countdown on the most devastating attack in U.S. history?
This was no accident, according to a VeriSign technician in Mountainview, Calif."This was timed so it would expire on that date," says the technician, who identified herself only by her first name, Antonette, and by her employee number, 001.
The Binladin website was created by a company called Arq Limited, a U.K. web design firm. The administrative, technical and billing contact listed on the whois search is a man named Philip Lumsden.After several calls to the U.K., I learned that Arq Limited went out of business, replaced by a company called Active 8 Solutions, which shares the same Bath, England, mailing address and a telephone number that is only one digit off from Arq Limited’s old number.I learned one more interesting thing."Mr. Lumsden left a week ago," said a man who answered the phone at Active 8 Solutions. "I am not aware of why he left."
A half-dozen odd calls Tuesday, October 15, to the Saudi Binladin Group’s headquarters in Jedda, Saudi Arabia, turned up little other than assurances that if I called back in 20 minutes or a half-hour, then somebody would be able to give me some information about the website.
The next day, I called again and again was told to call back later. By deadline, neither of the two emails I sent seeking comment were answered.
The trail of the website that I began following two weeks ago has taken me to a couple of very strange places — including a five-year-old mysterious death that may be al-Qaeda’s first hit on U.S. soil — and a very nervous British businessman who thought he was getting the bargain of a lifetime when he purchased the assets of a British web-design firm that created the domain." -
