Former CIA Director George Tenet discussed al-Qa’ida’s attempt to get sanctions from the clergy to use weapons of mass destruction. Shaykh Nasir bin Hamid al-Fahd “helpfully gave al-Qa’ida just what they needed. In a document published in May [21] 2003 called ‘A Treatise on the Legal Status of Using Weapons of Mass Destruction Against Infidels,’ al-Fahd argued that a large number of civilian deaths, numbering in the millions, would be justifiable if they came as part of an attack aimed at defeating an enemy.”
