Because reliable, inside, hip to procedures, possibly groomed-for-decades players do not grow on trees.bulletin wrote:Why run a sophisticated op and use the same players? If the op is designed as some sort of steam valve or beacon of hope then why on earth would they jeopardize it in such a blatant manner?
This also applies in relation to 'triple agent' Ali Mohamed. The same guy who trained the WTC '93 cell was also involved in the '98 embassy bombings plot.
And also because, from time to time, the available pool of said players shrinks, as some of them have to be disposed of in order to take their knowledge of ops down with them. (See :Lee Harvey Oswald, Jack Ruby, etc.) Bin Laden could even already be on that list, possibly even before 9/11.
