Saif Al-Adel, one of the FBI's Most Wanted terrorists, might have been after after 9/11 on AMW but at the very least was a web-exclusive case. Below is the wikipedia description of Al-Adel's alleged history:
Saif al-Adel (born 11 April 1960/63) is an Egyptian former military colonel, explosives expert, and a high-ranking member of al-Qaeda who is still at large. Adel is under indictment by the United States for his part in the 1998 United States embassy bombings in Kenya.
According to the indictment, Adel is a member of the majlis al shura of al-Qaeda and a member of its military committee. He has provided military and intelligence training to members of al-Qaeda and Egyptian Islamic Jihad in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Sudan, and to anti-UN Somali tribes. It is possible that his trainees included the Somalis of the first Battle of Mogadishu. He established the al-Qaeda training facility at Ras Kamboni in Somalia near the Kenyan border.
He was one of the masterminds of the assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Al Sadat in 1981, and left the country in 1988 to join the mujahideen in repelling the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. He is believed to have traveled to southern Lebanon along with Abu Talha al-Sudani, Sayful Islam al-Masri, Abu Ja`far al-Masri, and Abu Salim al-Masri, where he trained alongside Hezbollah Al-Hejaz.
In Khartoum, Sudan, Adel taught recruited militants how to handle explosives. Along with Saeed al-Masri and Mahfouz Ould al-Walid, he is believed to have opposed the September 11 attacks two months prior to their execution.
Married to the daughter of Mustafa Hamid, they have five children.
Since 2011, he has been connected with the kidnapping of the journalist Daniel Pearl in 2002.
On 29 February 2012, Egyptian authorities arrested a man believed to be Adel at Cairo International Airport, but the man was later identified as Mohammed Ibrahim Makkawi.
Thoughts? For anyone wondering, Al-Adel opposed the 9/11 attacks because he (accurately) predicted inciting the U.S.'s wrath would hurt Al-Qaeda's worldwide efforts. What makes Al-Adel a huge concern is he seems to be among the smartest of the most wanted terrorists on the FBI's list.
