Felix Sater and Al Qaeda
In early May of 2020, 53 transcripts were released as part of the Mueller investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election, including Felix Sater's testimony transcript from December, 2017. Within this transcript, there is additional detail and confirmation regarding Sater's extensive assistance with Al Qaeda leading up to and after 9/11.
As you can see from the below excerpts taken from this transcript, the level of intelligence he provided was vast and extensive:
"My cooperation extended to the highest levels of government and implicated some of our Nation's greatest enemies whose terrorism threatened our way of life. I provided crucial intelligence information and assistance to numerous U.S. national security intelligence and law enforcement agencies regarding well-known terrorists and organizations, including Osama Bin Laden and al-Qa'ida, several years before and after the September 11th, 2001, attacks.
This assistance significantly enhanced and potentially saved the lives of hundreds, if not thousands, of U.S. military personnel before and during military operations carried out in hostile countries."
Sater also details this work further by stating "under a Presidential directive, providing information regarding the location of high-risk single missiles initially issued to the Mujahedeen prior to their pending acquisition by al-Qa'ida; providing intelligence on the location of hidden al-Qa'ida terrorist training camps, including information regarding the location of Osama Bin Laden and elements of his command structure; information I provided, including the personal satellite phone numbers of Osama Bin Laden, was relevant to the bombing of al-Qa'ida training camps in 1998 by President Clinton, as well as "Assembling a team of mercenaries comprised of ex-SpecNat (ph) and Afghanistan Northern Alliance fighters in an effort to kill Osama Bin Laden in one of his terrorist training camps"
"After the heinous September 11 attacks on our country, I doubled my efforts, specifically: providing information regarding the financial support structures and mechanisms of the World Trade Center bombers; providing information regarding names and passports of al-Qa'ida operatives being used worldwide; providing information regarding American companies that were fronts for al-Qa'ida; providing information regarding the location of al-Qa'ida fighter groups; providing information regarding the location of al-Qa'ida weapons caches; providing information regarding meeting times and locations between al-Qa'ida operatives and various rogue intelligence agencies; reporting back on the results of U.S. bombing missions before our full invasion of Afghanistan; providing information regarding kills on the ground from U.S. bombing missions; providing information regarding which tribal structures could be coerced into abandoning the Taliban and al-Qa'ida and switching alliances to either Northern Alliance or other U.S.-supported groups; providing information regarding a potential attempt on Colin Powell, including information concerning specific plans by al-Qa'ida fighters on taking down Secretary Powell's plane on his visit to Bagram air base..."
Felix Sater also highlights in this testimony transcript his work "identifying key al-Qa'ida and Taliban leadership and taking efforts in coopting them into betraying the Taliban and al-Qa'ida and to begin assisting the United States; providing crucial assistance in coopting and turning the personal secretary of Mullah Omar, the head of the Taliban and Osama Bin Laden's protector into a U.S. intelligence asset."
"He was one of the few people in the cave hiding with Bin Laden and Mullah Omar after the 9/11 attacks."
As a reminder, there were threats and planned attacks by al-Qa'ida during 1998 - 2000 before the September 2001 attacks.
The 1998 United States embassy bombings were attacks that occurred on August 7, 1998, in which more than 200 people were killed in nearly simultaneous truck bomb explosions in two East African cities, one at the United States Embassy in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, the other at the United States Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya.
The attacks, which were linked to local members of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, brought Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, and their terrorist organization, al-Qaeda, to the attention of the U.S. public for the first time, and resulted in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) placing bin Laden on its ten most-wanted fugitives list. The FBI also connected the attack to Azerbaijan, as 60 calls were placed via satellite phone by bin Laden to associates in the country's capital Baku. Fazul Abdullah Mohammed and Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah were credited with being the masterminds behind the bombings.
The USS Cole bombing was a suicide attack by the terrorist group al Qaeda against the USS Cole, a guided missile destroyer of the United States Navy, on 12 October 2000, while she was being refueled in Yemen's Aden harbor. Seventeen U.S. Navy sailors were killed and 39 injured in the deadliest attack against a United States naval vessel since the USS Stark incident in 1987.
Al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack against the United States. A U.S. judge has held Sudan liable for the attack, while another has released over $13 million in Sudanese frozen assets to the relatives of those killed. The United States Navy has reconsidered its rules of engagement in response to this attack. On February 13, 2020, the government of Sudan agreed to compensate families of the sailors who died in the bombing.

If you are interested, this link above will direct you to read an "unpublished" unsure-how-accurate 9/11 Commission Report dated 2008. I have provided the source of where the report is found and provided a summary of its contents reporting names such as Boris Yeltsin, Nursultan Nazarbayev, Dick Cheney, the Bush family, Adnan Khashoggi, X, banks like X, and speculation regarding gold and money laundering to the tune of trillions. While this report appears to be well-researched and sourced, it it is again incumbent upon the reader to review the information and make their own judgments (or lack of judgment) accordingly.
While it is unclear whatsoever if Felix Sater would have been aware of any of this information, speculating any of it is true, what we do know is his partner Gene Klotsman in the stock fraud whom he was associating himself with in Moscow in 1997-1998 during this Wild Wild West period was friends with Boris Yeltsin, who is named in this report.
