some guy living in a cave

From the Toronto Star:

"A Moroccan-born Montrealer detained for nearly two years on suspicion of being a terrorist testified for the first time yesterday, suggesting ultra-conservative Americans may have been responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.

'I'm not an expert but from what I read, some guy living in a cave doesn't have the means to plan an attack against the most powerful nation in the world,' Adil Charkaoui said when Federal Court Justice Simon Noël asked who was responsible for the attacks.

'It could've been (Osama) bin Laden,' Charkaoui said. 'But maybe it was done by ultra-conservatives in the United States for economic gain.

'It was the world's biggest conspiracy.'"
