Al Quaeda meets Al Capone 

First drug dealing (and bank robberies and fraud), now this: apparently al Quaeda was trying to negotiate a deal with American mafia to assist in terrorist attacks.

“Gregory Scarpa Jr., a jailed mobster working for the FBI in 1996, was tutored by Yousef, convicted in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, on how to smuggle explosives past airport security, use shoes to blow up planes and hijack jets using stolen or phony passports.”

The relationship probably didn’t progress much further because bin Laden didn’t show the mobsters any respect.
