On January 8, 1998, regarding al Qaeda operative Khalid Sheikh Mohammed: “Nearly three years after his 1995 escape from the Su Casa guesthouse in Islamabad [Pakistan], and two years after the FBI helped [World Trade Center bomber Ramzi] Yousef contact him–only to lose him again in Doha, Qatar–the Feds were finally alerting the world that there was another major al Qaeda ‘fugitive’ loose with a price on his head.” By the time he was finally being pursued, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed “had risen to the position of senior al Qaeda military commander and was actively involved in executing the planes-into-buildings plot his nephew [Yousef] had conceived.”
