The Jordanian who killed the CIA officials in Khost was named Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi, although the man in the video says0 he’s Dr. Abu Dujana al-Khorasani.  But al-Balawi’s father says it is his son in the video.


The video shows the purported Jordanian suicide bomber sitting next to Baitullah Mehsud’s successor and the new Pakistani Taliban, or TTP, chief, Hakimullah Mehsud, and reading from written text.
