In terrorism expert Steven Emerson’s interview with author Peter Lance on June 7, 2006, he discussed the remarkable progress of al Qaeda operative Ali Mohamed’s rise through the ranks of the U.S. Army. He says he believes Mohamed “exploited the culture of secrecy among the intelligence agencies. ‘He figured out early on [that] once he got in the front door at Fort Bragg and was able to play a dual role there, he [could] exploit the system perfectly. He could play one bureaucracy versus the other. He knew how compartmentalized they were. They [agencies] didn’t talk to one another. And he knew the different thresholds at which his background would be checked.’ ”
