Reader comment on item: The FBI Fumbles [on Gamal Abdel-Hafiz]

Submitted by Sary (United States), Oct 26, 2005 at 00:34

If you search Gamal Abdel Hafiz's achievements on pbs.org you will find that he has done some amazing things to help the U.S. One of those accomplishments is interogate a U.S. citizen and have him confess to going to a training camp along with 5 others to Afghanistan and meeting Osama Bin Ladin. The suspect provided very important information that finished up a very sensitive case regarding Al Qaeda.

Gamal was praised by high ranking FBI officials for his role.

This man deserves to be thanked more than anything else. He has insight into the Muslim community that America can't do with out.

As for the meeting with Beiheri, he could've met him without even telling the other agents about anything. But his integrity, love for the job and America didn't allow him so. What this article didn't tell you that you could also find on pbs.org is that Abdel-Hafiz offered to record the meeting openly and on clear grounds. The other agents refused his request. That doesn't exclude the fact that his life was in danger.
Any American agent would've done the same and more if his or her life and his or her FAMILY'S life was on the line.

We should thank Abdel-Hafiz for his outstanding service.
