Global War on Terror Watch: Why the NSA Monitors Communications of Al-Qaida

Suspected al-Qaida militant Syrian citizen Loa’i Mohammad Haj Bakr al-Saqa, center, shouts ‘Allahu Akbar,’ Arabic for ‘God is great,’ as he leaves from a courthouse between plainclothes Turkish policemen in Istanbul, Turkey, on this Thursday, Aug. 11, 2005 file photo. The Syrian accused of serving as a key point man between suicide bombers and al-Qaida flew so far beneath the radar that even fellow militants thought he was dead. Loa’i Mohammad Haj Bakr al-Saqa, wanted by Turkey for 2003 bombings in Istanbul that killed 58 people, is said to have eluded intelligence services by using an array of fake IDs, employing aliases even with his al-Qaida contacts and finally faking his death in Fallujah, Iraq, in late 2004.
