Tipsters in Moussaoui case still quarreling over FBI reward

• McClatchy News
The FBI has belatedly awarded $100,000 to a former Minnesota flight school manager whose phone tip eight years ago led to the arrest of al Qaida conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui, but the bureau gave nothing to a man widely credited as a second tipster.

The reward to Tim Nelson amounts to 2 percent of the $5 million bestowed in January 2008 on an instructor at the Pan American International Flight Academy, where Moussaoui was taking lessons in flying a 747 jumbo jet before he was detained.
