#1 Abdullah Azzam, co-founder of al-Qaeda certainly visited the US, prior to his death-by-mine in Pakistan. But, Zawahiri was convicted by Egypt of membership in a terrorship organization, after the Sadat murder. He would not be a good candidate for a US visa.

#2 isn't this kinda late? why are we learning this now? did the "moderate muslims" of lodi JUST remember that he was there? did they just recently learn about his involvement with bin laden?

how come every other group polices itself and gives up its baddies quickly? why don't muslims do the same?

#3 Bullpuckys. FBI probably paid Kahn by the revelation.

Well, that just goes to prove that Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman could never be in the US! They've got the wrong man in that maximum security prison!

#5 For Listen To Dogs: read my lips...Fraudulent Documents and Porous Border. Plus, convicted terrorist Ali Mohamed also told the FBI the Zawahiri visted California circa the same time.

#7 Not out of the realm of possibility:

"In late 1996 he was detained in Russia for six months by the FSB after he apparently tried to recruit jihadists in Chechnya. According to the FSB spokesman Sergei Ignatchenko, 'He had four passports, in four different names and nationalities. We checked him out in every country, but they could not confirm him. We could not keep him forever, so we took him to the Azerbaijani border and let him go.' In 1997 he was held responsible for the massacre of around sixty foreign tourists in the Egyptian town of Luxor, for which he was sentenced to death in absentia in 1999 by an Egyptian military tribunal."

Nope, YS. Walker was from the northern San Francisco bay area, whereas Lodi is stuck in the Central Valley some 150 miles due east southeast.

#11 Adam Pearlman went to the mosque in Lodi. He's on the FBI's most wanted - at least he was for a long time.

This is feeding into my conspiracy theory about the Yosemite Murders, Polly Klass, Chandra Levy (Gary Condit was a congressman from Lodi). I posted about it some time ago here link

#13 Al-Zawahiri is just lucky he wasn't at Wacco intead, Reno would have burned him alive. Oh wait he wasn't American.

#14 Search "Zawahiri" at the DOJ website. Interesting.

I prefer the Post Office version of "Most Wanted." $25,000,000 for bin-Hidin':
