Description

In the weeks after the Sept. 11 attacks in Washington D.C., and New York, ABC News broadcast an interview with one of the first men to leave Osama Bin Laden's Al Qaeda training camps in Afghanistan. Identified as "Max" to protect his identity, "Max" was able to offer insight into the Al Qaeda training process and was able to identify two if the 19 hijackers responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks. ABC News, with the cooperation of the CIA, was able to extract "Max" from Afghanistan and Pakistan, where he believed he was in serious risk if he provided information.
