An al-Qaida double agent that killed seven CIA agents and Jordanian spy has called for jihad in Jordan and attacks on its intelligence agency in a new video message.




Humam Khalil Abu Mulal al-Balawi described Sunday in the 43-minute video that appeared on jihadi Web sites his recruitment by Jordanian intelligence and how he double crossed them.




The video was apparently filmed shortly before the 32-year-old al-Balawi blew himself up at a CIA facility on December 30 in Afghanistan's eastern province of Khost where he'd been invited to reveal information on al-Qaida.




Al-Balawi said he had only expected to kill his Jordanian handler, Ali bin Zeid, but the addition of the CIA members was a windfall. Al-Balawi called for attacks on Jordanian intelligence agents everywhere.
