Nathir + Fareed are CIA
It's written all over that this was part of the orginal script.
For obvious reasons it was removed from the movie by the producers that got scared.
They forgot however to remove that very brief scene where we see Fareed being filed as classified.
Then many little tips are being given all along :
* how Nathir & Fareed have so much intel so fast hmmm (the scene when Fareed is being informed about Samir)? just a "leak" ? a traitor from within ? & we are really supposed to believe that ?
* the last words of Samir to Omar : "they used your faith"
* the conversations over chess strategy
* the speech of nathir about the aim : american public must not feel safe ->so gvt can push forward patriot act and more fascism in society?
* the fact that this 2 don't care nor have a clue about Quran : the fact that they really don't have the profile of the supposed terrorist bosses that the media sells to us usually
I'm sure there is more & I have intimate conviction the real/original point of the movie was to paint a screwed up system, corrupted from the top; system within which some individual (samir & the fbi agent) are naively trying to make a difference, unknowingly of the truth.
Good people in a *beep* system as opposed to usual hollywood conspiracy movies about bad apples in a good system.
Think about it, it would make sense and remove the strange taste i'm getting from this movie (and would make it a masterpiece in its director's cut).
