In part one of this two-part episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, retired agent John Anticev reviews his investigation into the 1990 murder of Rabbi Meir Kahane and his operation of an FBI confidential source who infiltrated an operational cell of Egyptian Islamic radicals. The cell’s spiritual leader was Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, also known as the Blind Sheik. Members of this group, including Ramzi Yousef, were later found to be responsible for the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. John also talks about the stress and frustration he endured during the 6-year FBI internal investigation into his handling of the confidential source, who, unknown to John, had recorded many of their conversations.
