"Bin Laden didn't really surface until 1995, and as far as becoming this
financier behind this, and when he was expelled from Sudan in 1996, he
had already erected an infrastructure in Sudan, and it was in that
period that Sudan went on the list of state-sponsored terrorism. So we
weren't just hitting bin Laden; we're going after a Sudanese network
that allows it. They've been basically the Hotel Europe for terrorists,
Club Med of terrorism. And the United States in hitting Sudan. It's not
just Osama. Think of Osama as a white supremacist Christian. He's that
version in Islam. He's full of hatred, and he's full of religion, and
that's what's driving him.
Johnson currently works as a security consultant.
