On October 20, 2000, “After almost two years of protracted negotiations with the Feds, Ali Mohamed finally pleads guilty and admits his role as al Qaeda’s top U.S. spy. Though he confesses to planning and supporting the [African] embassy bombing plot, he is spared the death penalty. His plea deal, which remains under heavy seal, allows him to enter witness protection. Though he has separately been sentenced in absentia to death in Egypt, Mohamed manages not to give up the 9/11 plot to the Feds.”
