Nine lives : my time as MI6's top spy inside al-Qaeda by Aimen Dean( Book )

4 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As one of al-Qaeda's most respected bomb-makers, Aimen Dean rubbed shoulders with the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks and swore allegiance to Osama bin Laden himself. As a double agent at the heart of al-Qaeda's chemical weapons program, he foiled attacks on civilians and saved countless lives, brushing with death so often that his handlers began to call him their spy with nine lives. This is the story of how a young Muslim, determined to defend his faith, found himself fighting on the wrong side-- and his fateful decision to work undercover for his sworn enemy. From the killing fields of Bosnia to the training camps of Afghanistan, from running money and equipment in Britain to dodging barrel bombs in Syria, we discover what life is like inside the global jihad, and what it will take to stop it once and for all"--Jacket

The militant pipeline : between the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region and the West by Paul Cruickshank( )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper's findings put the relative threat from al Qaeda safe havens in Pakistan and Yemen to the West in some historical context. This paper will illustrate how an intensification in the CIA drone campaign and Pakistani military operations in Pakistan's tribal areas have reduced al Qaeda's ability to operate in the area, but by no means removed it, as the terrorist network has shown a significant ability to adapt its operations to the threat from the missile strikes. In recent years, despite the intensification of drone strikes in Pakistan, this paper finds that Pakistan has continued to incubate more serious terrorist plots than Yemen. These metrics do not yet bear out Obama administration claims that the terrorist threat from Pakistan's tribal areas has been reduced. This paper extends the research of a previous iteration of this paper, published in February 2010, which outlined five case studies of Western militants traveling to the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region for training between 2003 and 2008. The five case studies, which were chosen because the most open source information was available on them, charted the emergence of the FATA and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (formerly known as the North West Frontier Province, or NWFP) as a terrorist safe haven

Agent Storm : my life inside Al Qaeda and the CIA by Morten Storm( Recording )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Morten Storm was an unlikely Jihadi. A six-foot-one red-haired Dane, Storm spent his teens in and out of trouble. A book about the Prophet Mohammed prompted his conversion to Islam, and Storm sought purpose in a community of believers. He attended a militant madrasah in Yemen, named his son Osama, and became close friends with Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-born terrorist cleric. But after a decade of Jihadi life, he not only repudiated extremism but, in a quest for atonement, became a double agent for the CIA and British and Danish intelligence. "Agent Storm" takes listeners inside the jihadist world like never before, showing the daily life of zealous men set on mass murder, from dodging drones with al-Qaeda leaders in the Arabian desert to training in extremist gyms in Britain and performing supply drops in Kenya
Mi vida en Al Qaeda : la historia del yihadista danés que espió para la CIA by Morten Storm( Book )

5 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Danés, pelirrojo y de metro ochenta y cinco de altura, pasó su adolescencia metiéndose en líos con su pandilla de motociclistas y entrando y saliendo de la cárcel. Hasta que un día leyó un libro sobre Mahoma que lo cautivó y se embarcó en una metamorfosis que lo llevaría a una escuela de yihadistas en Yemen, a llamar a su hijo Osama y a convertirse en amigo personal de Anuar al-Aulaki, el rostro más conocido de Al Qaeda en la península Arábiga. Durante diez años, Storm buscó darle sentido a su vida a través del salafismo más radical. Luego, tan rápido como había venido, su fe se diluyó y se dejó seducir por los cantos de sirena de las agencias de espionaje más importantes del mundo, muy interesadas en su red de contactos. Así fue como acabó trabajando para los servicios secretos daneses, el Ml5 y la CIA, en misiones de altos vuelos en las que durante cinco años se jugó la vida. Todas con un solo objetivo final: acabar con al-Aulaki"--Publisher's description

Al Qaeda : the current threat by Paul Cruickshank( Recording )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frequent claims of foiled plots; tighter monitoring of suspects and stronger global terror laws. On the flip side, a new safe haven emerging for terrorists in Pakistan; stories of terror cells springing up throughout North Africa; numerous recruits from Europe's leading universities willing to sign up to the cause. Are Al Quaeda and its affiliates responsible for the horrific attacks in New York, London and Madrid, finding it hard to be the force they once were, or should we be bracing ourselves for the next outrage? This work weighs up the hard facts
