641. 7/2/1993

“Several senior FBI officials did not want him [New York bombing conspirator Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman] arrested because he was a magnet for militants, drawing them out of the woodwork and helping the FBI keep tabs on extremist activity. But political pressure was intense, and on the afternoon of 2 July [1993] the Sheikh was finally arrested.”
