This seems important, but I don’t know what it means

EXCLUSIVE: FBI had human source in contact with bin Laden as far back as 1993 U.S. learned of plans to finance terror attacks

In a revelation missing from the official investigations of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the FBI placed a human source in direct contact with Osama bin Laden in 1993 and ascertained that the al Qaeda leader was looking to finance terrorist attacks in the United States, according to court testimony in a little-noticed employment dispute case. “It was the only source I know in the bureau where we had a source right in al Qaeda, directly involved,” Edward J. Curran, a former top official in the FBI’s Los Angeles office, told the court in support of a discrimination lawsuit filed against the bureau by his former agent Bassem Youssef.
For those paying attention, Edward J. Curran was the FBI agent who was known as the Executioner during the FBI’s witch hunt inside CIA. Said witch being Robert Hanssen who was not even in the Agency but worked for the Bureau.
