“On September 10, 1998, [al Qaeda double agent Ali] Mohamed was finally arrested [in New York], after the August 1998 embassy bombings for which he had been directly responsible. Yet when indictments were handed down two months later, the name of Ali Mohamed, the ringleader, was not among the thirteen people indicted. Instead he was allowed to avoid a court appearance through a plea bargain, the terms of which are still unknown. As of March 2007, more than eight years after his arrest, he had not yet been sentenced.”
