Suspects listed in al-Qaeda materials

Federal authorities have found the names of up to a dozen U.S.-based al-Qaeda sympathizers in materials seized during the capture of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the terrorist network’s operations chief, two U.S. officials said Wednesday. The sources said the suspects already were being watched by the FBI. But finding their names in Mohammed’s belongings is key confirmation for authorities that the suspects may pose a significant public safety threat. Since last year, the FBI has been monitoring the activities of more than 200 possible al-Qaeda operatives in the USA. Mohammed, the highest-ranking al-Qaeda official in U.S. custody, is believed to be the mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks. He was captured Saturday in Pakistan with Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi, the alleged paymaster for the 19 hijackers involved in the attacks on New York and Washington. Full Story
