Regarding FBI operative Ali Mohamed’s involvement with al Qaeda and the African embassy bombings of August 7, 1998: ” ‘There is zero doubt,’ says one former agent who worked in the FBI’s NYO [New York Office], that ‘if Ali Mohamed ha[d] been properly vetted, his inside knowledge of the embassy-bombing plot, coupled with the intel the Bureau had, could have interdicted that event.’ ”
