“…it was not until after Neil Herman’s FBI team began investigating the February [26] 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center that the CIA really identified bin Laden as a major problem. The initial investigation into [terrorist Ramzi] Yousef’s gang of conspirators–which revealed that many militants in New York had fought in Afghanistan with US backing–woke the CIA to a massive ‘blowback’ problem from Afghanistan, as former intelligence assets turned against their sponsors.”
