January 8, 1998: Mohammed Revealed as Major Al-Qaeda Operative at Yousef Sentencing      Complete 911 Timeline

      
FBI reward notice for Khalid Shaikh Mohammed.
Islamic militant Ramzi Yousef is sentenced to 240 years for his role in the 1993 WTC bombing. At the same time, prosecutors unseal an indictment against Khalid Shaikh Mohammed for participating with Yousef in the 1995 Operation Bojinka plot (see January 6, 1995). In unsealing this, US Attorney Mary Jo White calls Mohammed a “major player” and says he is believed to be a relative of Yousef. [Washington Post, 1/9/98] The US announces a $2 million reward for his capture in 1998 and wanted posters with his picture are distributed. [New York Times, 6/5/02] This contradicts the FBI's claim after 9/11 that they did not realize he was a major terrorist before 9/11. [9/11 Congressional Inquiry, 12/11/02] For instance, a senior FBI official later says, “He was under everybody's radar. We don't know how he did it. We wish we knew. ... He's the guy nobody ever heard of.” [Los Angeles Times, 12/22/02] However, another official says, “We have been after him for years, and to say that we weren't is just wrong. We had identified him as a major al-Qaeda operative before September 11.” [New York Times, 9/22/02] Yet strangely, despite knowing Mohammed is a major al-Qaeda operations planner and putting out a large reward for his capture at this time, there is no worldwide public manhunt for him as there successfully was for his nephew Ramzi Yousef. Mohammed's name remains obscure and he isn't even put on the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorists list until one month after 9/11. [Lance, 2003, pp 327-30]
