Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi (d. May 10, 2009(2009-05-10)) (ابن الشیخ الليبی) (his real name was Ali Mohamed al Fakheri) was a Libyan paramilitary trainer for Al-Qaeda. After being captured and interrogated by the American and Egyptian forces, the information he gave under torture[1][2] was cited by the George W. Bush Administration in the months preceding the 2003 invasion of Iraq as evidence of a connection between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda.[3] That information was frequently repeated by members of the Bush Administration even though then-classified reports from both the Central Intelligence Agency and the Defense Intelligence Agency strongly questioned its credibility, suggesting that al-Libi was "intentionally misleading" interrogators.[4]

Training camp director

Al-Libi led the Al Khaldan training camp in Afghanistan, the facility where Zacarias Moussaoui and Ahmed Ressam trained. An associate of Abu Zubaydah, al-Libi was one of those whose assets were frozen by order of the September 26, 2002 list of terrorists released by the U.S. government following the September 11th attacks.

He was captured by Pakistani officials in November 2001, as he attempted to flee Afghanistan following the collapse of the Taliban precipitating the 2001 U.S. invasion of Afghanistan.[5]
