Are they going to make a movie about the Al-Qaeda double spy that killed CIA people watch

    • Thread Starter

    Western intelligence officials identified him as the perpetrator of the Camp Chapman attack, a suicide attack against a CIA base near Khost city in Afghanistan on December 30, 2009, and described him as an al-Qaeda sympathizer from the town of Zarqa, the hometown of Jordanian militant Islamist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Islamist websites characterized the attacker as a triple agent, an agent who is believed to be a double agent by the intelligence organization he infiltrates.[5]

    Al-Balawi had a history of supporting violent islamist causes.[6] He was tagged by National Intelligence Organization of Turkey (Millî İstihbarat Teşkilâtı) as having a relation with IBDA-C[7] It is not said whether Millî İstihbarat Teşkilâtı shared this information with other intelligence organizations. According to SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors extremist websites, he was a well-known contributor to al-Hesbah, an online forum run by Islamist extremists.[6] He also ran his own islamist blog.[5] He had been arrested by Jordanian intelligence more than a year ago and was believed to have been transformed into a double agent loyal to the U.S. and to Jordan.[5][8] According to intelligence officials, al-Balawi has been invited to FOB Chapman after claiming to have information related to senior al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri.[9] He was not closely searched because of his perceived value as someone who could infiltrate the ranks of senior al-Qaeda leaders. The CIA had come to trust the informant, and the Jordanian spy agency vouched for him, according to officials.[10]

    According to Western government officials, al-Balawi had been recruited by Jordan's General Intelligence Directorate and taken to Afghanistan. The Jordanian intelligence service is one of the CIA's closest allies in the Middle East.[10]

    According to a Jordanian report he was an "informant, who offered dangerous and important information which the authorities said they had to take seriously", but not recruited by the CIA or Jordanian intelligence. He was "only a trusted source who went onto the base without inspection" the official said.[11]
    Honestly this is shi*t that would come out of Hollywood, I don't think they'll make a movie about it though because in here they're the ones being played.
Is the Big Bang theory correct?
