    The plot seems to have been portions of KSM's original planes operation that he pitched to OBL in the late 90s. The original plan called for two dozen hijacked aircraft. Most would have been detonated over the Pacific, along with the east coast attacks, attacks in southern California and Washington state. KSM envisioned himself as hijacking an airliner and landing it at an airport to issue demands. OBL, according to the 9-11 Commission, scaled the plan back - calling it "too ambitious."
