Now apply that knowledge to the pattern of behavior of the CIA, and consider whether or not the 2 groups still work together, eh?
Not likely at all. Check it out.
Phase III, CIA plane crash plot
Abdul Hakim Murad confessed details of Phase III in his interrogation by the Manila police after his capture. Phase two would have involved Murad either renting, buying, or hijacking a small airplane, preferably a Cessna. The airplane would be filled with explosives. He would then crash it into the Central Intelligence Agency headquarters in the Langley area in Fairfax County, Virginia. Murad had been trained as a pilot in North Carolina, and was slated to be a suicide pilot.There were alternate plans to hijack a 12th commercial airliner and use that instead of the small aircraft, probably due to the Manila cell's growing frustration with explosives.
So here is where terrorist planned to fly an airplane into CIA headquarters. Goes to show the CIA and al-Qaeda were not as close as you thought. The person behind the plan? The same guy behind the 1993 WTC1 bombing and nephew of the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks.
You must remember that al-Qaeda declared war on the United States.
