by | Apr 30, 2010 | Interviews

Peter Lance, author of Triple Cross: How bin Laden’s Master Spy Penetrated the CIA, the Green Berets, and the FBI—and Why Patrick Fitzgerald Failed to Stop Him, discusses Ali Mohamad’s infiltration of the U.S. government, the Egyptian core of al Qaeda, how the FBI could have prevented the 1993 WTC bombing, informant Emad Salem’s heroic attempt to infiltrate the Blind Sheik’s cell and later get him convicted of the bombing, FBI manager Carson Dunbar’s unbelievable arrogance and incompetence, field agent Nancy Floyd’s exemplary service, Lockheed Martin’s perpetual failure to fix the FBI’s computers, the 1995 Bojinka plot for non-suicide attacks on aircraft uncovered by the arrest of Abdul Hakim Murad and Wali Khan Amin Shah in the Philippines, why the KSM trial should be held in NYC, the hypocrisy of Andrew McCarthy — who made his career prosecuting terrorism cases in civilian venues — now demanding military trials or none at all, the time Ali Mohamad directly threatened federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald with the unleashing of al Qaeda sleeper agents and he didn’t do anything about it.
