Narrative and Notes
 
Reliable
  • Zahrani was on a Saudi watchlist prohibiting travel, but he managed to make it to Afghanistan to be assigned to an al-Qaeda mission in the United States. He returned to Saudi Arabia but was unable to obtain a U.S. visa because he was still on the Saudi watchlist.1
