"Peter Lance's stuff comes back again in this article by Peter Dale Scott about Ali Mohamed:
1) a key planner of the 9/11 plot, and trainer in hijacking, was simultaneously an informant for the FBI.
2) This operative trained the members for all of the chief Islamist attacks inside the United States – the first WTC bombing, the New York landmarks plot, and finally 9/11, as well as the attacks against Americans in Somalia and Kenya.
3) And yet for four years Mohamed was allowed to move in and out of the country as an unindicted conspirator. Then, unlike his trainees, he was allowed to plea-bargain. To this day he may still not have been sentenced for any crime.
Ali Mohamed. …. trained most of al Qaeda’s top leadership – including Bin Laden and Zawahiri – and most of al Qaeda’s top trainers. He gave some training to persons who would later carry out the 1993 World Trade Center bombing…. From 1994 until his arrest in 1998, he lived as an American citizen in California, applying for jobs as an FBI translator.
It is now generally admitted that Ali Mohamed (known in the al Qaeda camps as Abu Mohamed al Amriki — "Father Mohamed the American")8 worked for the FBI, the CIA, and U.S. Special Forces."
"From what I've read, Lance is suggesting that US intel is covering their incompetence. Huh? Does he really believe the CIA and the FBI are this clueless? Come on. I recently read his (very good) book 1000 Years for Revenge in which he repeatedly points out bizarre actions of the FBI. Yet, he concludes the book by suggesting the FBI is simply incompetent. Strange.Damien concurs
Did the Feds know exactly who Mohamed was and what he was doing? IMO, the answer is yes."
