Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. An Egyptian-Canadian aid worker and patriarch of the Khadr family, Sheikh Ahmed Said Khadr had close ties to a number of militant and Mujahideen leaders, including Osama bin Laden, which saw him accused of being a "senior associate" and financier of al-Qaeda, while his family insisted that he maintained the contacts to help his charity work. As Mohammad Mahjoub defended himself to authorities in 1998, "Everyone knows Khadr." Khadr worked with a number of charitable non-governmental organizations serving Afghan refugees, and setting up agricultural projects.
