Yousef's arrest came about as a result of unusually smooth coordination among several U.S. and foreign intelligence agencies, says TIME Washington correspondent Douglas Waller. On the U.S. side, the CIA, FBI and even the FAA worked together -- agencies that "don't always get along," Waller notes.

"We had many dealings with them during the Afghan war against the Russians," says Shannon.
