During his testimony given on February 6, 2001, in the East African embassy bombing trial, al Qaeda defector Jamal al-Fadl cited an undated fatwa by Osama bin Laden, whose text is no longer extant, that read: ” ‘…we cannot let the American army stay in the Gulf area and take our oil, take our money, and we have to do something to take them out. We have to fight them.’ ”
