Zouaydi is starting the last year of a 9 year sentence. In Bill Ayers words, in a year he’ll be free as a bird. Only in his early 50s, and I suspect still not only rich but able to reactivate his old connections.
Maybe he can get a job on Current TV. Al-Thanni, al-Azzam, al-Gore, what's the difference.
Not one of the dozen key defendants named here last month [Sept 2003] as members or supporters of an alleged Madrid-based cell accused of working for Al Qaeda and helping advance the Sept. 11 plot is a native of Spain, or even nearby Muslim North Africa.
Instead, all migrated to Spain from Syria, where--according to the Spanish indictment--most became affiliated with an ultramilitant Islamic group called the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood.
Virtually from the moment of the Sept. 11 attacks, investigators in Europe and the U.S. were perplexed by what appeared to be a Syrian connection to the hijackings, both here and in Hamburg, Germany, whose university campuses produced three of the four Sept. 11 pilots and several accused or convicted accomplices.
