The show was an 2hour special so there's way to much information to fit into one thread. There were some interesting points however:
-The spy is named Ali Mohammed, and is a former egyptian military officer with special forces background.
-Speaks englis, hebrew, arabic, and a few other languages fluently.
-Degree in psychology.
-Friend of Osama bin Laden and devoted to extreme Islam and jihad.
-Involved in the training and development of al-Quaida since early 80's
-Did one assignment for the CIA in germany but was black listed after he sold them out and revealed to the guys he was supposed to spy on that he was
working for the CIA.
-Came to america in a military exchange programme (despite being on a list of suspected terorists)
-Applied at the FBI for a translator job, but was hired for his inside information of the terrorist network. Got #listed again after doing exactly the
same as he did with the CIA.
-In the process he stole a lot of classified documents which were used when he wrote the terrorist training manual still in use by al-Quaida today.
-Osama hired him to train his personal bodyguards after the assasination attempst on him.
-Has been in US custody in a secret federal detention center since around 94, althoug has never been trialed or sentenced for anyting. In fact, they
still use him for information.
-Had intimate details of the 9/11 attack in spite of being in complete isolation for a week.
And much more...it was just overwhelming. I kind of got the feeling this was the show to connect all the dots as they pretty much gave the image that
all terrorists were working with eachother across borders to achieve the same goal; an islamic state. Propaganda for the war-machine.
The show also shows how the US intelligence community got repeated warnings about terrorist activity, knew about the terrorists intent to crash planes
into buildings, allowed some very high profile black-listed people to enter the US and get a visa...
My theory? Either they let this happen by looking the other way or the extremists have infiltrated a lot more of the intelligence community than they
are willing to admit... But then there is always the "total incompetence" possibility. The CIA, FBI, DoD etc. don't really like to talk to
eachother so this is not totaly impossible... Still pretty shocking though...
