Description: An INTELWIRE Source book. More than 400 pages of analysis, court and intelligence documents about al Qaeda's most dangerous sleeper agent.
Ali Mohamed is a terrorist without peer. He trained al Qaeda's most lethal operatives and literally wrote the book on how to run a sleeper cell operation. And he practiced what he preached -- infiltrating the U.S. Army, compromising a CIA undercover operation and acting as an FBI informant for years -- even as he helped plan and execute the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the 1998 East African Embassy bombings. All the while, he was creating an underground network of terrorist resources that would be used to accomplish the September 11 attacks. His story is required reading for counterterrorism officials. Mohamed's sobering tale shows just what al Qaeda's top operatives are capable of.
