1995-05-11: FBI FD-302, Abdul Hakim MuradThis mostly redacted document memorializes an April 14 interview with Ramzi Yousef's accomplice Abdul Hakim Murad. Arrested in January 1995 in the Philippines, Murad was a key player in the Bojinka plot and told authorities that Yousef had (in 1994 or 1995) hatched a scheme to hijack a commercial airliner and crash it into CIA headquarters.
As an aside, the timing of this interview is interesting, in that it takes place five days before the Oklahoma City bombing. On April 19, 1995, Murad told a prison guard that Yousef's "Liberation Army" was responsible for the attack, however INTELWIRE's efforts to document the FBI's follow-up investigation of that claim have thus far yielded nothing.
