“One month after the [USS Cole] attack, on November 11 [2000], Yemeni authorities established the link to al Qaeda. Interrogations of [Fahad al-] Quso and Jamal al Badawi had helped identify the men who provided the operational direction. They were [Tawfiq bin Attash, aka] Khallad and [Abd al Rahim] al Nashiri, both already known to have strong links to al Qaeda and the 1998 [African] embassy bombings.”
