Executive summary: al Qaeda's man in Australia
After converting to Islam, British-born Australian Jack Roche joined Jemaah Islamiah, which is how he met Hambali, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, and ultimately Osama bin Laden. Roche made some attempts to recruit members for an al Qaeda cell he was starting in Australia, but nothing ever came of it. He then took it upon himself to blow up the Israeli Embassy in Canberra with TNT, but that project also languished. Two years later, authorities finally arrested Roche for his terrorist activities. He pled guilty for plotting the Embassy attack and received a nine-year prison term.
