“One lesson that the FBI should have learned from the Malaysian summit [of al Qaeda on January 5, 2000] was just how well coordinated al Qaeda was…al Qaeda was a tightly integrated network with directions coming from the top down directly via bin Laden and [second-in-command] Dr. [Ayman] al-Zawahiri. It was an international network capable of staging a summit conference, with operatives from half a dozen countries working together to plan acts of terror on three continents.”
