Fitz - yes, we know him well -

2002 late : (FITZ DRAFTS INDICTMENT AGAINT NABIL AL MARABH BUT DOJ DECLINES TO PROSECUTE) In late 2002, U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald drafted an indictment against al-Marabh on multiple counts of making false statements in his interviews with FBI agents. Justice headquarters declined prosecution. Fitzgerald then tracked down [Ahmed Y. ] Ashwas, the Jordanian who had spent time with al-Marabh in a federal detention cell in 2002.

So, after Fitz gets ahold of Ashwas [Ashwas was a Jordanian informant who told the FBI in Chicago what he had heard from Nabil alMarabh while they were in prison]...

Ashwas tells what he learned from Nabil alMarabh, which amounts to this:

Al-Marabh said he aided [Millenium plotter] Raed Hijazi's flight from authorities and sent him money. Hijazi was a Boston cab driver convicted in Jordan for plotting to blow up a hotel in Amman in 1999, according to FBI and Justice documents. Al-Marabh and Hijazi were roommates at Afghan training camps and later in the United States.
A mystery figure in Chicago, known only as "al Mosul," asked al-Marabh to attend a driving school in Detroit with Arabic instructors so he could get a commercial truck driver's licence.
Al-Marabh said he and Hijazi planned to steal a fuel truck and detonate it in the heavily travelled Lincoln or Holland tunnels, but the plan was foiled when Hijazi was arrested. [New York Tunnel Plot]
Al-Marabh acknowledged he had distributed money — as much as $200,000 U.S. a month — to various training camps in Afghanistan in the early 1990s. ----- FBI: Terror suspect plotted fuel attack ; Al-Marabh planned to blow up tunnel ; Jail informant reported `martyr' bid JOHN SOLOMON ASSOCIATED PRESS

[* My note: Notice the line I put in bold about "al Mosul?" I don't know Arabic but given that the tag "al Tikriti" seems to mean someone came from Hussein's hometown of Tikrit, and "al Amreeki" means some wannabe jihadi yankee came from the USA, if I'm not being too bold I would think this "al Mosul" means "of Mosul," as in the Iraqi city of Mosul... but one news report by John Solomon of AP says "al Mosul" just means "boss" and doesn't mention it might mean the mystery guy in Chicago who told Nabil al Marabh to go to trucking school is from Mosul, Iraq.]
