1993 WTC attacker converts to Christianity: ReportNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:07 am ICT by admin
The report is based on exclusive footage of inhabitants at the supermax prison in Colorado, which houses the nation’s toughest and most infamous criminals, such as Olympic bomber Eric Rudolph, would-be 9/11 terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui, Oklahoma City bomber Terry Nichols and shoe bomber Richard Reidwhere.
However, former warden of the prison Robert Hood has rubbished the claims.
“He’s playing a game with someone. If he’s doing that, he’s doing it for the reaction … he is the real deal,” Hood said.
Special-case prisoners spend 23 hours a day in their cells at the prison. But, according to Hood, its warden from 2002 to 2005, Yousef was a special case.
Yousef never left his cell because he did not want to face the indignity of a strip search required for recreation, news.com.au quoted Hood, as saying.
As a Muslim, Yousef prayed almost every hour, he recalled.
Yousef, a self-proclaimed Muslim extremist with past links to al-Qaeda, had plotted to blow up the WTC twin towers in Manhattan, killing six people in the February 26, 1993, bombing.
He was sentenced to life plus 240 years for the attack and another on a Philippines Airlines plane in 1994 in which a Japanese man died. (ANI)
