Broward College Says Alleged al Qaeda Leader Was Dropout, Used Different Name
Seeking to "stem the tide of incorrect information," Broward College has released a statement that clarifies the school's association with Adnan El Shukrijumah, the former Miramar resident who the FBI now believes to be one of al Qaeda's leaders.
"Unfortunately, every time something about this story comes up, we get dragged back into it. To our knowledge, we have not had any contact with him since he was a student, more than a decade ago. It is deplorable that misinformation about his connection to the college has been repeated in the media without any verification."
