ex-spook interview

Fascinating interview with a former CIA man about bin Laden. More evidence that there is a culture clash between the US intelligence community and a decentralized terrorist network such as al Qaeda. Also, he takes issue with the idea that the attack was carried out by a sophisticated group, while at the same time hinting that bin Laden’s network may connect Iran, Afganistan, Lebanon, Algeria, and Egypt. He also calls bin Laden the “here’s Waldo” of terrorism.
