In retired Lieutenant Colonel Robert Anderson’s interview with author Peter Lance on June 6, 2006, he discussed the remarkable progress of al Qaeda operative Ali Mohamed’s rise through the ranks of the U.S. Army: ” ‘Consider what happened,’ Anderson marvels. ‘This individual [Mohamed] was a major in the Egyptian army. He left the Egyptian army, got a visa to the United States. That is difficult. At some point, he joins the United States Army. He does not have a security clearance. He’s assigned to a Special Forces unit at Fort Bragg. If you proposed this to any army non-commissioned officer [or] commissioned officer, they'[d] tell you, it didn’t happen without support from an outside agency. Now, what outside agency? I would say that it would have to be the CIA getting him into the United States. And then once in the United States, the Federal Bureau of Investigation.”
