Profile: Mohammed Abdullah al-Shahwani

Mohammed Abdullah al-Shahwani was a participant or observer in the following events:

Veteran CIA operative John Maguire calls long-time friend Mohammed Abdullah al-Shahwani, a former Iraqi general, and tells him, “It’s showtime.” Maguire and al-Shahwani worked together in the ‘90s on a covert plan to overthrow the Iraqi government, but the plan was never approved by the Clinton White House. Maguire believes the 9/11 attacks have provided the long awaited opportunity to remove Saddam Hussein. (Isikoff and Corn 2006, pp. 154)
