    Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak recently appointed his first-ever deputy, Intelligence chief Omar Suleiman, and Suleiman is now coming under fire for cooperating the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) . According to AFP, Suleiman has been linked to a program thought up by the CIA that saw terror suspects questioned using torture. Under the CIA's extraordinary rendition program, suspects were taken to countries other than the United States, where they could be interrogated without adherence to U.S. laws on torture. Suleiman has allegedly allowed the U.S. to send terror suspects to Egypt since 1995.

    The CIA has come closer to capturing or killing Osama bin Laden's top deputy than was previously known during the past nine years, the Associated Press has learned. Tragically, the agency thought it had its best chance last year at a secret base in Afghanistan, but instead fell victim to a double agent's devastating suicide bombing. The CIA missed a chance to nab Ayman al-Zawahri in 2003 in the northwest Pakistani city of Peshawar, where he met with another senior al Qaeda leader who was apprehended the next day, several current and former U.S. intelligence officials said.
