Bizarre Twist: Man Becomes Islamist Warrior…After Mother Almost Killed In 9/11 Attack

[Ottawa Citizen] But as an al-Qaeda turncoat, his life is in serious jeopardy. Perhaps as a result, he’s lost considerable weight since his appearance at London’s Old Bailey in 2006.

For almost three hours, in an accent he picked up in New Yorl [sic] City, where he lived from the age of two, he recounted bits and pieces of his life. He wanted to be a pharmacist, but dropped out of university after one year.

In a bizarre twist, his mother was working in one of the World Trade Center towers in Lower Manhattan when the jetliners struck on 9/11.

She survived and he became an Islamist warrior. He was soon back in his native Pakistan as a jihadist for the group al-Muhajiroun, supplying cash and military equipment to al-Qaeda and other Islamist fighters in Afghanistan.

The rest.
