Daily Kos: Michael Chertoff is the worst man in the world to be our Homeland Security Director

a tale of money laundering, bin Laden, the Taliban, arms sales, terrorism and two Egyptian brothers: Dr. Magdy el-Amir, a New Jersey neurologist who funded Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman (convicted in the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing) and Mohamed el Amir, an engineer who happens to share the same name and occupation as another infamous Egyptian, Mohammad Atta.

Guess who represented Dr. el-Amir? None other than Michael Chertoff.

And who was the U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey when the first attack on the World Trade Center took place? Why, again, Michael Chertoff.

And that brings us up to Operation Diamondback's informant, Randy Glass.

"In August 2001, just before Glass started to serve a seven-month sentence for a $6 million jewelry scam, he said he reached out to Sen. Bob Graham and U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler. He said he told staffers for both lawmakers that a Pakistani operative working for the Taliban known as R.G. Abbas made three references to imminent plans to attack the World Trade Center during the probe, which ended in June 2001.

And just who was in in charge of the Criminal Division when Operation Diamondback was shut down? Michael Chertoff, who was appointed Assistant Attorney General, under John Ashcroft in early 2001 and was placed.
