While the Jordanian government appears to have backed away from its earlier position that Deek was bin Laden's "top lieutenant," officials now insist that at the very least Deek was some kind of travel agent for agents working for bin Laden.
"Khalil Deek had no relationship to any other defendants in this case," Arab protested. "He has no criminal record in Jordan or Pakistan or America. He lives in Peshawar, so it is logical that he knew people who were involved in the Mujahedin. The Jordanians brought him here to answer questions about those people, but before he's finished talking, they charge him because of this CD. That is why I call this the CD case."
