Right Hand, Meet Left Hand...
Reporter David Rennie, of the
British tabloid, The Telegraph, reports that Iyman Faris,
aka Mohammed Rauf, was, "...used by the FBI for months as a double
agent." As if to corroborate that, TIME magazine dug
around a bit, when the Iyman Faris story broke, and
found out that the US DoJ "...secretly detained [Faris] about two
weeks after the dramatic capture on March 1 in Pakistan of Khalid
Sheikh Mohammed, al-Qa'eda's chief of operations."
Just how much control, if any, the FBI used on Faris, who, among
other things, did some research on ultralights as possible
weapons (and apparently recommended against using them),
was not disclosed by either publication. The FBI rarely discloses
the extent of its involvement in such operations.
Faris, who pleaded guilty to a smorgasboard of crimes, faces up
to 20 years in prison, when he gets sentenced in August.
