Former Informant Opens Up About Experience Infiltrating Islamic Terrorists

Emad Salem was one of the FBI’s most valuable government informants.

Now the 64-year-old who helped put Islamic terrorists behind bars is speaking out publicly for the first time in years and is selling his first self-published book, “Undercover,” the Los Angeles Times reports.

Born in Egypt, Salem emigrated to the U.S. in 1987 and soon was recruited by the FBI to monitor suspected Russian mobsters. In the 1990s, his undercover assignments focused on Islamic terrorism.

Salem infiltrated the terrorist group behind the first World Trade center bombing in 1993.

Salem said he blew through $1 million he received from the U.S. government.

“I’m tired of all that,” Salem told the Washington Post. “It is time for me to talk now. I was shut up for 20-some years.”
