Description

Egyptian immigrant Osama Eldawoody speaks to CBS Evening News about his two years "infiltrating and informing on a small group of Pakistani-Americans who planned to bomb a major New York City subway station at Manhattan's Herald Square." While his efforts helped lead to "one of the few post-9/11 terror trial convictions in New York," he found himself in grave danger. His anonymity was not sustained, and he said there were fatwas - threats - against his life in the NY/NJ Muslim community. Eldawoody felt the government failed him, as his identity was revealed when he testified in court, and he has not received help in finding a new job.
