Excellent work bro.
It's good having you back around.
I wonder why he is at so many red carpet events even though he is supposedly a sales manager at volvo.
And why would he be at the Navy Annex at all?
Man I wish we knew all this when we were in town.
We would have soooo ambushed him with a camera or audio recorder!

Good stuff man. At least we know he is a real person and not just some made up identity. I am glad you were able to get his name, because I would have never figured out the spelling of it.
hey guys, im sorry about getting back to this thread so late (too much multi-tasking and too many avenues of research lately). but i appreciate the props, and im always glad to contribute. its great to see the progress u guys are making, and im looking forward to the next chapter.
regarding the blacktie event, i found that although time-warner hosted the event that year, the "best buddies" thing is actually founded by Anthony Kennedy Shriver
(related to governor ahnold'z wife - maria shriver):
about "best buddies":http://www.bestbuddies.org/site/c.ljJ0J8MN...est_Buddies.htm
"Best Buddies ® is a nonprofit 501©(3) organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with intellectual disabilities by providing opportunities for one-to-one friendships and integrated employment.
Founded in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver, Best Buddies is a vibrant, international organization that has grown from one original chapter to more than 1,300 middle school, high school, and college campuses across the country and internationally."
they actually have a cycling event every year, that audi and volvo are involved in: http://www.kintera.org/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=104309
The Volvo Hyannis Port Challenge is a unique cycling event, offering participants an unforgettable ride experience from the JFK Library in Boston to the Kennedy Compound in Hyannis Port.
here is how aziz apparently became involved in the event, as a cycling coach:http://www.connectionnewspapers.com/articl...aper=73&cat=104
"A gang of bikers, mostly female, has been tearing up the trails around Vienna for the last few months. About 12 local women and a few local men are training themselves in preparation for a 90-mile ride, from JFK Library in Boston to the Kennedy Compound on Cape Cod. The ride, set for May 20, is Volvo's Hyannis Port Challenge, held to raise money for Best Buddies, an international organization that works to establish friendships between volunteers and those with intellectual disabilities."
"Last weekend, Team Best Buddies Virginia went to Bethany Beach to make a 72-mile ride — their longest yet. They are also currently the highest-earning of the 46 registered teams, with more than $35,000 pledged — almost $10,000 more than the second-ranked team — and they are still fund-raising.
"None of us knew what we were doing," said Susan Garvey, state director for the Best Buddies program in Virginia and member of the bike team. So, when they were first starting, she contacted Aziz Elhallou, the winner of last year's Hyannis Port ride, and asked him to coach the team. Since then, she said, he has been teaching them when to shift gears, how to ride each other's drafts and other tricks of the trade. "He's been awesome," said Garvey.
amount of money raised (aziz is a cheap bastard - 50 bucks was the cost of entry):http://www.kintera.org/faf/search/searchTe...EC&team=1194320
other "best buddy" events:http://www.bestbuddies.org/site/c.ljJ0J8MN...onal_Events.htm
he is also on Don Beyer's cyclingteam:http://220.127.116.11/search?q=cache:Eaix7...clnk&cd=1&gl=us
Don Beyer is major big whig around here. his bio:http://www.virginiaeconomicbridge.org/Orga...onald_Beyer.htm
Donald S. Beyer, Jr. was elected Lieutenant Governor of Virginia in 1989 and served until 1998. In that capacity, he presided over the Virginia Senate, earning the reputation as the most activist President of the Senate in Virginia history.
Mr. Beyer has served on the Virginia Board of First Union National Bank and the board of Shenandoah Life Insurance Company, based in Roanoke. He is currently on the board of Lightly Expressed, a fiber optic lighting design and manufacturing firm. Since his return to private life, he has grown the family business to a chain of dealerships including Land Rover, Subaru and three Volvo stores. He serves on the Volvo International Product Development team and his businesses are regularly honored with the esteemed "Dealer of Excellence" award.
Mr. Beyer is a member of the Northern Virginia Business Roundtable and the Northern Virginia High Tech Council, which he co-founded. He currently serves on the boards of Youth for Tomorrow, the Washington Community Foundation, and the Red Cross. He and his family attend Christ Church in Alexandria, where Mr. Beyer serves as Chairman of the Outreach Subcommittee.
there is no indication that aziz's connection to the beyer team has anything to do with anything other than cycling, plus he DID work for Volvo at one point, so that maybe how he became involved with team beyer. but with such limited information about aziz overall, i thought it was worthy background information.
speaking of employment, he used to work for martens volvo, but he is currently no longer listed as a marten's volvo employee:http://www.martensvolvo.com/General-Staff.aspx
you can probably find him here instead (herb gordon's auto):http://18.104.22.168/search?q=cache:IZDO7...lnk&cd=14&gl=us
his employment at martens is mentioned here in a donation to Sandhills Political Action Committee in 2007 (to senator Chuck Hagel):http://www.campaignmoney.com/political/con...52.asp?cycle=08

other info that turned up- i found chef hicham (aziz's brother) here:http://www.dcinternational.org/felisnavidad22dec2007.html

back to the earlier pics of aziz at the blacktie event where aziz and a lady are pictured with "Simon Jacobsen" and "Toni Glickman":http://www.washingtonlife.com/backissues/a...est_buddies.htm
again- with such limited info overall, i could only dig so far. so i preface the following with a disclaimer: although there is no evidence of any direct ties between the people in the picture (other than commingling at a party together), nor any implication inferred about any wrong-doing - even if there are direct ties between such parties, i thought it might be interesting to know the backgrounds of the people aziz is pictured with. so at best most of the following is trivial, but i found it interesting (and somewhat informative about the local elite) none the less.
"Simon Jacobsen is son of Hugh Jacobsen and CEO of the design firm. Overseeing collaboratively and independently on projects in North America, Europe and the Caribbean."
"Simon Jacobsen has been with the company professionally for 12 years, but has worked for the firm off and on since he was 13.
Jacobsen supervises 20 architects and support staff and is involved in every Jacobsen project. He has a BA from Bardford College and holds a Master of Architecture from The Chicago School of Architecture (UIC). He also serves as a visiting academic critic to the school of architecture of The Catholic University with Suzane Reatig, Architect."
jacobsen is a member of a super secretive group of elite calling themselves the "Georgetown Club":http://www.georgetownleague.info/http://www.georgetownleague.info/NewsAnnouncements.html
"The Georgetown Media Group who owns the The Georgetowner approached two members at Café Milano this week to seek an interview and gain information on the country's oldest and exclusive sporting club.
Section 22.214.171.124 of the rules of the club only permit an officer to speak to the media if the following information is represented in some kind of convincing way:
1. The club is 700 years old.
2. Its primary purpose is to promote interpretive dance.
Under no circumstances are names to be given of members or the size of the organization.
The interview, which may take place in the fall, will undoubtedly be short as soon as the paper realizes that not even the name of the chairman can be revealed."
but they inadvertently out him as a member several times throughout the newsletter:
Mr. Carlson was admitted for membership through Simon Jacobsen who saw him on the street one day
Jacobsen's ('06) captive-wife delivers 7 lb 7 oz. baby boy.
Father assumes child's identity and ruins credit.
On February 8th, 2007 at 12:23 p.m. at Sibly Hospital, Ruth and Simon Jacobsen acquired Hugh Mitchell Newell Jacobsen, at 20 inches long and weighing 7.7 pounds.
moving on to jacobsen's wife, toni glickman (pictured with aziz and co.):
jacobsen's marriage to glickman:http://www.washingtonlife.com/backissues/a...ar/weddings.htm
"Toni Glickman and Simon Jacobsen were married on May 6, 2000 in theWest Garden of Tudor Place. The bride is the daughter of Sharon Glickman.The groom is the son of Mr. & Mrs. Hugh Newell Jacobsen. The bride wasgiven away by her uncles Norman Glickman, and former Secretary ofAgriculture Dan Glickman."
"The ceremony, led by Federal Judge Paul Friedman, was attended by twohundred and sixty guests from around the country as well as Europe. Some ofthe guests included NBC’s Chip Reid, Congressman Ed Markey (D-Mass), Admiral Susan Blumenthal, Max & Heidi Barry, Castlerock Entertainment President Liz Glotzer Jacobsen, and Jon Glickman, President of Spyglass Films."
her uncle, Dan Glickman, is another bigtime big whig, with major intelligence community affiliations:http://www.washingtonian.com/articles/people/819.html
"Glickman’s DC career began in 1976 when he was elected to the House from Kansas. He served as secretary of Agriculture under President Clinton..."http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html...754C0A962958260
This year the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Dan Glickman, Democrat of Kansas, sponsored a bill to let him publish the black budget. The House voted it down, 221 to 194, on Tuesday night. Today it approved spending the secret funds.http://www.washingtonflyer.com/article/200...y/Leading%20Man
"...former nine-term congressman from Kansas, former director of the Institute of Politics at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government and, since 2004, successor to the legendary Jack Valenti as CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA)..."http://126.96.36.199/search?q=cache:7P4vp...lnk&cd=12&gl=us
"Secretary Glickman serves on the board of directors of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange; Communities in Schools; America's Second Harvest; Food Research and Action Center; RFK Memorial Foundation; and The Farm Foundation.

congressional record of INTELLIGENCE BUDGET (Senate - April 21, 1993) hearing:http://www.fas.org/irp/congress/1993_cr/s930421-budget.htm
very informative political bio of glickman (ex-republican):http://www.mindfully.org/Reform/Glickman-C...med-Ag-Secy.htm
his son Johnathon Glickman is CEO of Spyglass Films which did CIA movies like "The Recruit
"Jonathan Glickman, President, is responsible for the development and production of all Spyglass Entertainment films. In 1993, Glickman joined Caravan Pictures as an intern and by 1997 he had worked his way up to President of the company. "
so all in all, thats quite some company aziz keeps- if he does indeed have any dealings with the people he was pictured with at the best buddies ball.
in closing, lets get back to aziz and the pentagon. peoplefinder makes mention of an arlington address for him: http://www.peoplefinders.com/Summary.asp?f...=&doby=&x=0&y=0
but u have to pay to find out what address it is or was. the other sources (and i tried many spellings of his name) did NOT list any arlington address for him. so i guess the next step is to find out that arlington address and see how it fits into his story about his whereabouts on 911.
and then contact him (maybe?):
(this cached link includes an email addy for him - at top of the page)http://188.8.131.52/search?q=cache:IZDO7...lnk&cd=14&gl=us
whew! i hope that explains why i have been putting this thread off for awhile. i was overwhelmed by trying to organize all the info into a post, plus i had to weed out about a third of the info i had cuz it wasnt really all that relevant.
but i hope that the above is of some help to our (collective) efforts. lets see what aziz can reveal, who knows? maybe he still has that piece of "flight 77", huh?
