Development via "Whistleblower" 25 Feburary 2014:
EXCLUSIVE: FBI had human source in contact with bin Laden as far back as 1993
U.S. learned of plans to finance terror attacks
In a revelation missing from the official investigations of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the FBI placed a human source in direct contact with Osama bin Laden in 1993 and ascertained that the al Qaeda leader was looking to finance terrorist attacks in the United States, according to court testimony in a little-noticed employment dispute case.
Pakistan had been playing a double game until the events of September 11 forced the situation. Pakistan had supported the rise of the Taliban in the power vacuum left by the departure of the Soviet occupation army at the end of the 1980s. Pakistan supported and even used al-Qaeda terrorist training camps to train its own operatives for use in the Kashmir dispute. There are other examples of Pakistan’s possible links to terrorism and infiltration of the ISI by al-Qaeda, such as the alleged funneling of money from ISI director General Ahmad Mehmoud to 9/11′s Mohammed Atta. The Wall Street Journal reporter, Daniel Pearl, was kidnapped and murdered in Karachi, Pakistan while he was investigating these al-Qaeda-ISI links.
