261: John Anticev – 1993 WTC Bombing, TERRSTOP, Informant Emad Salem In part two of this two-part episode, retired agent John Anticev continues his case review of his operation of FBI informant Emad Salem, who infiltrated an operational cell of Egyptian Islamic radicals but fired by John’s FBI superiors while John was out on sick leave recovering from a brain tumor.

After the attack, John re-engaged his source to penetrate a second operational terrorist cell preparing to attack the Lincoln and Holland Tunnels, the United Nations, 26 Federal Plaza, and other New York City landmarks. This time, the case, known as TERRSTOP, resulted in the prevention of major attacks and identified links between the cell and a hostile intelligence service.  John also discusses the stress and frustration he endured during the 6-year internal investigation into his and others handling of the source, who, unknown to John, had secretly recorded many of their conversations. John Anticev served in the FBI for 28 years.    Check out episode show notes, photos, and related articles.   https://jerriwilliams.com/261-john-anticev-1993-wtc-bombing-terrstop-informant-emad-salem/ Buy me a coffee - https://www.buymeacoffee.com/JerriWilliams   Join my Reader Team to get the FBI Reading Resource - Books about the FBI, written by FBI agents, the 20 clichés about the FBI Reality Checklist, and keep up to date on the FBI in books, TV, and movies via my monthly email.
