Legal loophole keeps “next Mohammed Atta” at large

“That the U.S. Department of Justice has failed to issue a criminal warrant for the arrest of “the next Mohammed Atta” is as mind boggling as it is chilling.”


28 January 2008: When Clarence (Clancy) Prevost, was rewarded $5 million in an unpublicized closed-door ceremony in Washington last week, Adnan el Shukrijumah was likely counting his lucky stars.

“Secretly authorized” by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice last fall, the handsome reward from the State department’s “Rewards for Justice” program is the first and only one to date to a U.S. citizen related to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Created in 1984, Rewards for Justice has paid rewards to roughly 50 people.

Not only can Adnan el Shukrijumah read, he can read in English.

That news must be a comfort to the man who is second only to Osama bin Laden on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorist List.

Prevost’s controversial $5 million payday stems from his being one of three persons to have flagged the government about flying student Zacarias Moussaoui’s strange desire to learn to fly a Boeing 747 with no flying background.

The “hinky” feelings of his flying instructors were well founded. Moussaoui ultimately confessed to being the “20th hijacker” and was sentenced to life in prison without parole in 2006.

What, you might well ask, has this got to do with the elusive el Shukrijuamah, nicknamed by the brotherhood “Jafar, the Pilot”?
