For a long time, extremist groups in Egypt have been trying to infiltrate the military institution and its former members because of their experience and capabilities. Historically, the most important former military men who later emerged as prominent leaders in extremist organizations are Abu Hafs al-Masri, Abboud al-Zomar, Seif al-Adel, Abu Obeida al-Banshiri and the group responsible for President Anwar Sadat’s assassination. Most recently, former Egyptian army officer Walid Badr, blew up himself in an attempt to assassinate the interior minister. Who is Walid Badr? Why did Ansar Beit al-Maqdes scarified him for a suicide bombing? This week’s episode of “Death Making” tackles these unanswered questions.
