Post Osama got 9/11 attack idea from Egypt air crash

Osama bin Laden got inspiration for the deadly 9/11 attacks from a 1999 plane crash in which an Egyptian airline pilot deliberately downed his plane in the Atlantic Ocean, the al-Qaeda has claimed.
In an article titled “September 11 attacks — the story untold” published in its weekly magazine, the al-Qaeda said the inspiration for the attacks was the story of Gamil al-Batouti, the Egyptian co-pilot who deliberately crashed Egypt Air flight from Los Angeles to Cairo, killing 217 people.
When Osama heard about the Egyptian plane crash, he asked, "Why didn't he crash it into a nearby building?" pronouncing the idea of targeting buildings, the Jerusalem Post reported.
