On October 20, 2000, al Qaeda double agent Ali Mohamed appeared in a Federal District courtroom in Lower Manhattan. He pleaded guilty five times, admitting to his involvement in plots to kill U.S. soldiers in Somalia and Saudi Arabia, U.S. ambassadors in Africa, and American civilians ‘anywhere in the world.’ The goal of the al Qaeda terrorists he trained, he said, was to ‘kidnap, murder and maim.’ His career in espionage had earned him a death sentence in an Egyptian trial the year before.”
