Undercover Jihadi: Mubin Shaikh—Al Qaeda Inspired, Homegrown Terrorism in the West @ International Spy Museum | Washington | District of Columbia | United States
Hear directly from one of the very few people in the world to have actually been undercover in a homegrown terror cell.  After coming out of extremism himself, Mubin Shaikh decided to use his connections as a former militant jihadist to fight international and domestic terrorism by working undercover for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and the Canadian Integrated National Security Enforcement Team to infiltrate radical groups and conduct surveillance. He ultimately infiltrated the “Toronto 18,”where he gathered inside information that was essential in thwarting the group’s 2006 plans for catastrophic terror attacks including placing three truck bombs in Toronto that were the size of Oklahoma City’s bomb, storming the Parliament and beheading the Canadian Prime Minister.  Dr. Anne Speckhard, author of Talking to Terrorists and co-author of Mubin’s memoir, Undercover Jihadi: Inside the Toronto 18,  is a research psychologist who has interviewed more than 400 terrorists. This evening, she will put Mubin’s story in perspective as it relates to radicalization and terrorism, while Mubin will share his personal journey from extremism to undercover operative.
