The true story is a lot more complex; and although the DVD accurately recited events leading to the 911 terrorist attacks, the real story is about a highly energetic officer that wanted to do good and service American interests by helping the Afghan Rebels fight the Russians; but then was caught off-guard in turbulent political shifts!
This guy, handsome, athletic, outgoing, was one of the CIA's main contacts to Ossama Bin Laden, not only he infiltrated Bin Laden's organization, but he also was the guy that trained Bin Laden's body guards and gained his/their unquestioned trust. In fact, when Bin Laden wanted to cross the dangerous Afghan mountains into Pakistan then to Sudan, he specifically asked (the CIA) for Ali Mohammed to lead his security team and plot the road for his safe transportation. If you do watch the movie "Charlie's War"(it's about Senator Charlie Wilson - Tom Hanks - a senator that dedicated so much of his time, effort and political influence to fund and train the Afghan rebels to fight the Russian invasion), then you would sympathize better with Ali Mohammed's character.
He was caught in an international political cliff, right at the moment when the US government shifted its policy from spending more than 1.0 Billion a year helping Afghan rebels with weapons ammunition and training, to ZERO!Read more ›
I have the book which goes into much greater detail. It is incredible to me how the people who are supposed to keep an eye on known terrorists seem unable to follow people like this and the 9/11 terrorists. We know that FBI Agents testified before Congress that they were watching the terrorists learn to fly airliners, but this information "got lost". Information like this doesn't get lost, it gets buried.
If seem these people are more interested in spying on the American people than in the activities of known terrorists.
