National Geographic - Triple Cross: Bin Laden's Spy in America

An al Qaeda spy infiltrated America, acquired U.S. intelligence, and then revealed it to the one man the United States came to fear most--Osama bin Laden. How did Ali A. Mohamed, a radical ex-Egyptian Army Major and a mole for Egyptian Islamic Jihad and al Qaeda, survive inside the U.S. for more than 14 years? This master spy served briefly as a CIA asset, enlisted in the U.S. Army, and worked for the FBI as an informant, but he was "triple crossing" U.S. officials on the road to 9/11.

National Geographic reveals the extraordinary untold story of Osama bin Laden's brilliant intelligence agent whose masterful maneuverings facilitated nefarious acts of terror. Using insight from FBI, military and justice department officials, National Geographic exposes how one man exploited gaps in the U.S. intelligence community.
