2. Al-Sakra "one of the five most senior members of al-Qaeda"
This is getting better and better.

According to Turkish intelligence, his real name is Luayibi Mohammed Hac Bakr al-Saka, born in Syria to an upper-class family in 1973. Suffers from manic-depression and panic attacks. Based in Europe, he is a senior al-Qaeda financier who operates under the aliases Lian bin Mohammed Saka, Abu Mohammed al-Suri, Abu Haya al-Suri, and Ala al-Din. (...)

Received personal approval from Osama bin Laden to carry out the Antalya attacks and last met with the al-Qaeda leader 3 months ago. Sakra is one of the few people within al-Qaeda who is still allowed to meet with bin Laden face-to-face for security reasons and as such is considered by Turkish intelligence to be one of the five most senior members of al-Qaeda.


So the German intelligence agency BND helped al-Qaeda's No. 5 to escape from Germany and he later went on to organize an attack on Israeli ships...?!
