Regarding the al Qaeda terrorists’ infiltration of the American military, journalist Peter Bergen said, “In November [13] 1986 [Egyptian Islamic Jihad sleeper agent] Ali Mohamed enlisted in the U.S. Army for a three-year stint. …Special Forces soldiers are dispatched to tackle the riskiest missions. …So Fort Bragg is pretty much the last place in the world you’d expect to find a bin Laden operative. Yet Ali Mohamed, it turns out, was an indispensable player in al-Qaeda.”
