Overview

He plotted to kill Pope John Paul...to crash a plane into CIA headquarters...to blow 11 airliners flying from Asia to the United States. But it isn't the things that he plotted that he is known for--it's the one that was carried out: the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Today the attack is largely overshadowed by 9/11, but at the time it was one of the most memorable attacks on American soil.

This book provides insight into Yousef life, his planning of the attacks, and, perhaps, one of the most bizarre twists of fates of any Islamic extremist: how he allegedly became a born again Christian while in prison.
