Khalid Shaikh Mohammed

Khalid Shaikh Mohammed (Arabic: خالد شيخ محمد; also transliterated as Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Khalid Shaikh Mohammad, and other ways) (b. March 1, 1964 or April 14, 1965) is the Pakistani-Kuwaiti mastermind of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center towers in New York. Until his capture in Pakistan in 2003, he was a very important figure in Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda organization, where he masterminded numerous plans and came to head the group's propaganda operations sometime around 1999. Recent word has surfaced that he was one of the head conspirators in a 2002 West Coast Plot to attack the U.S. Bank Tower, the tallest building in Los Angeles, this time taking recruits from al-Qaeda's Southeast Asian wing, Jemaah Islamiyah, to avoid suspicion Posted by Picasa
