“Among the evidence that [mobster turned FBI informant Greg] Scarpa [Jr.] had pulled out of [World Trade Center bomber Ramzi] Yousef was the presence of four of Yousef’s ‘people’ in New York City; evidence of possible al Qaeda involvement in the June [25] 1996 Khobar Towers bombing [in Saudi Arabia]; and evidence of a bin Laden plot to hijack a U.S. airliner to free [militant Islamist] Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman.”
