Incorporated in September 1987, Brooklyn’s Alkhifa Center “had become bin Laden’s main American branch and a hub for outposts in Atlanta, Chicago, Connecticut, and New Jersey. (In all, recruitment for the Afghan jihad took place in twenty-six states.)” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
