“The most significant intercept of al Qaeda message traffic occurred on December 7 [2001], when one of [Northern Alliance militia leader] Hazrat Ali’s commanders at Tora Bora [Afghanistan] said, ‘We have intercepted radio messages from Kandahar to the Al Qaeda forces here, and they ask, *How is the sheik?* The reply is, *The sheik [i.e., bin Laden] is fine.* ‘ ”
