“On January 24 [1993] the [World Trade Center bombing] plot was nearly derailed when [conspirators Mohammed] Salameh and [Ramzi] Yousef got in a car accident. …Yousef, who had been riding in the passenger seat, was hospitalized with lacerations. …using the alias Kamal Ibrahim, he continued calling chemical companies from his hospital bed, arranging for deliveries of aluminum, magnesium, ferric oxide, and more nitric acid to the storage shed [in New Jersey].”
