Very little is known about Wafti bin Ali. Analysis by The Rendition Project and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism has established that he was transferred into CIA custody at some point between 10 November 2002 and 4 December 2002. According to calculations published by the SSCI, he was held by the CIA for nearly three months (80-89 days). The main body of the SSCI report provides no details about his detention or treatment and, prior to its investigation, the Senate Committee itself had not been notified by the CIA that it had held bin Ali. No other information about his detention currently exists in the public domain.

Bin Ali would have been transferred out of CIA custody at some point between 29 January 2003 and 3 March 2003. His fate and whereabouts after this point are unknown.
