The Washington Post has an extremely interesting article about the al-Jazeera reporter who interviewed two high-ranking Al Qaeda operatives, one of whom, Binalshibh, was subsequently captured in Pakistan. The reporter, Yosri Fouda, has received death threats from Al Qaeda supporters who blamed Binalshibh’s capture on Fouda’s al-Jazeera interview. Fouda describes the elaborate security precautions that surrounded his interview of the Al Qaeda leaders; Fouda says he did not fear being murdered like Daniel Pearl, since “they would not win points with their fans for killing a Muslim.” The Al Qaeda men justified killing American civilians on the ground that they were taxpayers, and regretted the death of Muslims, which they termed “collateral damage.”
