Ahmed Abassi, a Tunisian citizen, discussed plans to recruit terrorists in the United States with an undercover FBI agent. Abassi applied for immigration documents by claiming the undercover agent’s company was his employer. His investigation was a joint effort with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, as Abassi was connected to a plot to bomb a VIA Rail train traveling from New York to Toronto.
