Description: An INTELWIRE Source book. More than 150 pages of court and intelligence documents about Mohammed Jamal Khalifa, Osama bin Laden's brother-in-law and an alleged terrorist financier.
Controversy surrounds the figure of Mohammed Jamal Khalifa. A brother-in-law of Osama bin Laden, he was accused of being an al Qaeda financier, yet no one ever successfully convicted him of a crime. He was arrested in the United States in 1994 and deported in 1995 under mysterious circumstances. In 2007, he was assassinated -- just days after U.S. officials received intelligence from INTERPOL concerning his status as part of a project to exploit information from captured terror suspects. To his dying day, he denied all involvement in terrorism -- and some of the leading journalists covering al Qaeda believed him. This collection of documents includes exclusive original reporting by INTELWIRE's J.M. Berger, who broke the INTERPOL story and revealed for the first time that Khalifa was placed in maximum security lockdown in a California prison after the Oklahoma City bombing. Exclusive documents in this volume also reveal new information about his deportation and how U.S. officials maintained a hold on him after he left the country. Documents from this collection were used as part of "Killing Abu Baraa," an episode of al Jazeera's <a href="http://www.aljazeera.net/NR/exeres/5523896D-82A9-4E98-A560-46C9F5DB0DE9.htm">Top Secret with Yosri Fouda</a>.
