Wierdness in the 9/11 committee staff report

The report says:

Bin Ladin had been pressuring KSM for months to advance the attack date. According to KSM, Bin Ladin had even asked that the attacks occur as early as mid-2000, after Israeli opposition party leader Ariel Sharon caused an outcry in the Middle East by visiting a sensitive and contested holy site in Jerusalem that is sacred to both Muslims and Jews.

But Sharon’s visit to the Temple Mount occured on September 28, 2000. So either (1) mid-2000 extends to October, (2) Osama knew when the Intifada was to begin and wanted the attacks to coincide, or (3) someone is lying.
