Show availability of Iran for al Qaeda training, plotting.
This week, prosecutors in New York introduced eight documents recovered in Osama bin Ladens compound in Pakistan as evidence in the trial of a terrorism suspect. The U.S. government accuses Abid Naseer of taking part in al Qaedas scheme to attack targets in Europe and New York City.
The files do not support the view, promoted by some in the Obama administration, that bin Laden was in comfortable retirement, sidelined, or a lion in winter in the months leading up to his death.
Some of the key revelations in the newly-released bin Laden files relate to al Qaedas dealings with Iran and presence in Afghanistan.
Al Qaedas description of its own presence in Afghanistan is directly at odds with the assessments made by U.S. military and intelligence officials, who have portrayed the group as having only a small number of fighters and being geographically isolated.
Other revelations include the following:
Senior al Qaeda leaders discussed potential negotiations with Al Jazeera over the copyrights for the jihadists propaganda films and footage. Al Qaeda also wanted to play a significant role in an upcoming documentary produced by the channel.
Al Qaeda was in direct contact with Al Tayyib Agha, a Taliban leader who has served as Mullah Omars emissary. The U.S. government has held direct talks with Agha in an attempt to broker a peace deal in Afghanistan.
Al Qaeda was monitoring the situation in Libya, and noted that the brothers in the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) were operating in Benghazi, Derna and elsewhere in eastern Libya. Members of the LIFG went on to help form Ansar al Sharia in Derna and other al Qaeda-linked groups, some of which took part in the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack.

Al Qaeda and Iran merely pretended to be at odds with each other.
There not even pretending anymore.
And Newsmax reported that Saddam Hussein apparently knew of 9/11 in advance.
What about Obama’s secret ties with Iran? I’m more concerned with that.
Keep digging. You'll find that 0bama bin Lyin' also has ties.
For me, his ties to Saddam have hidden in plain sight all these years.
Zawahiri’s group, Egyptian Islamic Jihad, was on Saddam’s payroll. They recruited Osama and formed his inner circle; you could only get to him through them.
He was Saddam’s asset from the beginning there in Sudan.
We have the most incurious press in history. None of this is really secret and yet no one seems to pay any attention to it.
Al Jezzera willing to pay Al Queda for “copyrighted” terror videos......
Al Gore Owned part of Al Jezzera at the time....
Connect the dots.
It’s been known for years that the Iranian regime gave safe passage to some of the 9/11 terrorists through Iran. And Bin Laden’s son sought safe haven there.
The IRI is and has been a state sponsor of terrorism of all sorts.
Indeed, but it is interesting that documents related to this relationship surface just as Dear Reader is trying to piece together a nuke deal with Iran.
You know the old saying. The best place to hide something from someone is right under his nose.
Our press would have been all over it if a democrat president had brought Saddam down.
The prosecutors for the trial needed to bring it out to show intent. I bet the administration didn’t want them to.
Anything to avoid dealing with Saudi Arabia’s role in 9/11, I suppose.
I heard that what’s coming out is stuff used recently in terrorist trials, and that’s why we’re finally hearing about it.
