Sakra known as Saqa 'was paid by the CIA'; Ken Bigley; 9 11

From Intelligence Alert

Sometimes referred to as The Aladdin of Syria he is otherwise known as Luai Sakra (UID 337070) or Al-Saqa.

He was convicted in absentia of involvement with the Jordanian terror group, which planned attacks on the Marriot Hotel in Amman.

He is also alleged to have been involved in the terror bombing campaign which took place in November 2003 in Istanbul.

He was arrested in August last year (August 2005) in Diyarbakir, Turkey having changed his appearance with the aid of plastic surgery, and was at the time of his capture about to fly to the capital to undergo further surgery. (Cases like these put into question the reliability of photos as a source of ID).

Authorities discovered 750 kilograms of explosives in his apartment.

According to the Press Association 22 April 2006: http://www.guardian.co.uk/uklatest/story/0,,-5773313,00.html

British detectives may interview an alleged Al Qaida militant over the death of Ken Bigley after his lawyer said he knows where the murdered hostage is buried.

The body of the 62-year-old engineer from Liverpool was dumped in a ditch near the Iraqi city of Fallujah, according to lawyer Osman Karahan.

He told a press conference in Turkey that his client, Loa'i Mohammed Haj Bakr al-Saqa, presided over a mock court that sentenced Bigley to death.

Sakra was involved in 9 11?

Ercan Gun, at zaman.com 15 Agust 2005, reports on the Syrian 'Al Qaeda Militant' Luai Sakra who was arrested for organizing the double bomb attacks in Istanbul on 15-23 November 2003.

Sakra 'has confessed to Turkish police that he provided the attackers of 9 11 with passports'.

Sakra 'claims that he knew Muhammad Ata'.

Sakra 'claims he drinks alcohol and does not pray'.

Sarka reportedly said: “I was one of the people who knew the perpetrators of September 11, and knew the time and plan before the attacks.

"I also participated in the preparations for the attacks to WTI and Pentagon. I provided money and passports.”

Reportedly, some of the passports, which Sakra claimed to have provided himself, were found in the ruins of WTI.


Sakra worked for the CIA?

Ercan Gun, on 15 August 2005 at zaman.com, wonders if Al-Qaeda is a Secret Service operation?

Sakra has been interrogated for 4 days at the Istanbul Anti-Terror Department Headquarters.

Reportedly this has provided some important information.

According to Ercan Gun, Turkish intelligence specialists now believe:

1. Al-Qaeda is the name of a secret service operation.

2. Al Qaeda is linked to a strategy of tension. (See also Operation Gladio ; Turkey, terror bombs, the CIA and Mossad)

3. Sakra, the fifth most senior man in al-Qaeda, was offered employment by the CIA.

The CIA gave him a large sum of money.

The CIA claimed it eventually lost contact with him.

Reportedly, in 2000 the CIA asked the Turkish security service MIT to capture Sakra. MIT caught Sakra in Turkey and interrogated him.

At a different period of time, Sakra was sought and caught by Syria's al-Mukhabarat. Syria too offered him employment. Reportedly, Sakra eventually became a triple agent for the secret services.
