New on INTELWIRE: Did Ali Mohamed Call The Shots in WTC '93?

INTELWIRE's J.M. Berger was lead researcher for the documentary. Original reports featuring additional new information on Ali Mohamed and al Qaeda's links to the World Trade Center bombing will appear on INTELWIRE during September.

A special INTELWIRE report in September, The Solid Case, will offer the most detailed and best-documented public accounting to date concerning financial and operational evidence directly linking al Qaeda and Egyptian Islamic Jihad to the 1993 bombing.

In September, INTELWIRE will also report new information concerning the 1994 arrest by U.S. authorities of Mohammed Jamal Khalifa, Osama bin Laden's brother-in-law and an alleged al Qaeda financier. INTELWIRE will publish a substantial number of court filings and government documents related to the case for the use of journalists and researchers.

This week, INTELWIRE released new FBI documents concerning a domestic terrorism investigation of a U.S. militia group with significant ramifications for the Oklahoma City bombing.
