Apparently Al Qaeda bosses are unrelenting back-biting managers when it comes to dealing with low-level terrorists. A letter obtained by the Associated Press reveals the strange inner-workings of the terrorist network that masterminded 9/11. According to correspondence, lower level terrorists in the group’s North African division reportedly have to fill out expense reports, attend meetings, return supervisors phone calls in a timely fashion, and of course, produce spectacularly deadly and terror-inducing results.
A building formerly occupied by the group in Mali revealed a 12-page letter and focuses on Moktar Belmoktar, an Alegerian-born terrorist in his early 40s. The rebuke came from Al Qaeda’s North African chapter’s governing body and pushed Belmoktar to resign; forming his own group which, within months, claimed responsibility for two attacks so large they rivaled the biggest operations undertaken by Al Qaeda’s wing on the continent.
