“United States intelligence and law enforcement officials said today [June 4, 2002] that they had concluded that a possible relative of Ramzi Ahmed Yousef, who coordinated the first bombing of the World Trade Center, in 1993, and a later unsuccessful plot to bomb American airliners over the Pacific, played a pivotal role in planning the Sept. 11 attacks on New York and Washington. …Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, 37, a Kuwaiti, is now believed to have been a leading figure in Osama bin Laden’s Qaeda network who helped plan the attacks, officials said.”

 – James Risen, “Sept. 11 Suspect May Be Relative of ’93 Plot Leader,” The New York Times, June 5, 2002
