This investigation uncovered the strong ties between Fawaz Damra, a seemingly peaceful spiritual leader of Ohio's largest mosque, and Osama bin Laden. The investigators found that before moving to Ohio, Damra headed a radical mosque in Brooklyn, to which the people behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing belonged. Furthermore, he was directly involved in fund-raising for terrorist "charities." Damra's charity was the predecessor of Al Qaeda, and gave bin Laden a foothold in America.
