Season 22, Episode 12 Son of Al Qaeda

First Aired: April 22, 2004

“Son of Al Qaeda” profiles Abdurahman Khadr, the rebellious 21-year-old son of a Qaeda leader who grew up with Osama bin Laden's children---then spied for the CIA after having been arrested in Afghanistan following the Sept. 11 attacks. Now in Canada---and estranged from both sides---Khadr tells his story to CBC journalist Terence McKenna. It took him from Afghanistan to Guantanamo Bay, then to Bosnia, where the CIA wanted him to infiltrate terrorist cells, McKenna says. Khadr turned on the CIA, just as he had his father---and Qaeda. Sums up McKenna, “Being a wild teenager is what saved him.”
