Turkish social media was heartbroken over the viral photo of a Syrian refugee shoeshine boy staring in from the outside of a southeast Turkey gym (left). So the gym gave the 12-year-old Muhammad Hussein a free lifetime membership. (right, DHA photo)

In Sept 2002, then-former PM Benjamin Netanyahu told US Congress that there was “no question whatsoever” that Saddam Hussein was developing nuclear weapons. He said: “I guarantee you” that toppling Saddam would have “enormous positive reverberations on the region.”

34. The chats on Hussein's phone show that he was trying to send the video of the murder to a man inside ISIS called "Nuhas." He told me he first made contact with Nuhas via Qori Nassir on Telegram. Nuhas was inside Syria when Hussein was dispatched to Tajikistan for the attack:

33. His orders were to attack "non-believers." The men parked themselves on the side of the Pamir highway, popular with Western cyclists. The investigation shows that the GPS of the cyclists' phone and the GPS of Hussein's intersected for the 1st time the morning of the attack.

30. I spent 4 hours interviewing Hussein. He confirmed that once in Syria he had received military training before fighting on the frontlines for ISIS including in the battle for Tal Afar. He also said that he was involved in recruiting other Russian speakers online.

29. Using this technique, the agent confirmed that the woman in Iraqi custody was indeed the wife of Qori Nassir & went to speak to her in jail, where the wife confirmed that she and her husband had traveled to Syria and later Iraq to join ISIS. Hussein's information was accurate

25. I was able to factcheck Hussein's claim regarding Qori Nassir's membership in ISIS by going to see Qori Nassir's family in Tajikistan. I met with his first wife who said she'd not heard from him in years and that the government had come to tell her he'd been killed in Syria:

24. But being a member of the IRPT in the 1990s means nothing once that person has joined ISIS. (It's like saying that Osama bin Laden was a member of this or that Saudi party before he created al-Qaeda.) Hussein said it was alongside Qori Nassir that he traveled to Syria

23. He says his introduction to extreme Islam began under the tutelage of a man named Qori Nassir, an Islamist cleric whom Hussein met in the 1990s. Qori Nassir used to be a member of the IRPT party, which is how the Tajik government pinned the blame for this attack on the IRPT

20. We put in a formal request to interview Hussein in November. We were told we could only do so after his trial was over. I thought I was being blown off & returned to NY. To my surprise, officials contacted us in December just after he was sentenced to say we could see him.
