FBI Director Louis Freeh wrote: “As for Osama bin Ladin and al Qaeda, from at least the mid-1990s on, they were constantly on our radar screen, and at the highest level of concerns. Working side by side with the CIA, we secured a June [8] 1998 indictment charging bin Laden with plotting to murder American soldiers in Yemen in 1992. A year earlier, a clandestine CIA-FBI team…had begun tracking the al Qaeda leader around the globe.”
