On September 9, 1996, “the FBI confirmed that [WTC bomber Ramzi] Yousef told [mobster turned FBI informant Greg] Scarpa [Jr.], ‘BOJINGA [his alias for bin Laden] contacted him during his trial and said that his people’ were ‘going to prepare to hijack an airplane and kidnap a United States Ambassador at the time, if he [Yousef] is convicted. …YOUSEF stated that the hijacking would include more than one airplane [and that the airplanes would be] forced to land in either Afghanistan, Sudan or Yemen.’ ”
