    Osama's Man in our Midst.

    A book that shows the author investigated to the endth degree, and didn't engage in conspiracy theories about 9/11 is exactly what I wanted. TRIPLE CROSS is not to be missed. It's an engrossing read because of Lance's brilliant interweaving of the threads of al Qaeda's master spy, Ali Mohamed's triple-agent career and his parallel world of support operations for bin Laden. An Egyptian, Ali became a CIA operative in 1984, then an FBI informant, also joining the U.S. Army where he became a Special Forces advisor at the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center at Ft. Bragg. Meanwhile, He trained Osama bin Laden's personal bodgyguard, twice moved bin Laden and his family - in 1991 and 1996, all while slipping in and out of the U.S. past watch lists, marrying an American woman, and becoming a naturalized citizen. From Silicon Valley to Long Island, NY, Ali Mohamed showed his unabashed allegiance to bin Laden, training al Qaeda members at the Calverton, LI shooting range in 1989, when he and they were photographed by the FBI, training the cell in NY that blew up the World Trade Center in 1993, and stealing secrets at Ft. Bragg and from the FBI in NYC and San Francisco. He shuttled between his quiet life as a Silicon Valley computer executive to Afghanistan and the Sudan to train al Qaeda terrorists in bomb-making and assassination, while seeking top security clearance from a Silicon Valley defense contractor. As the secret operative who photographed the U.S. Embassies in Nairobi and Dar Es Salaam, showing the photos to bin Laden who pointed to where the explosives should go, he personally planned and helped execute those bombings. Read TRIPLE CROSS and find out where this triple agent with the double life is today while U.S. planes bomb areas of Somalia to get others in the embassy plots. I liked many other things about TRIPLE CROSS - Lance's interviews, including some of the agents involved with Ali, the extensive documentation, the latest on Able Danger, and his tireless pursuit of the truth in order to make our country safer. To read him is to become infused with that same passion.
