Somewhere north of Tehran, living perhaps in villas near the town of Chalous on the Caspian Sea coast, are between 20 and 25 of al-Qaidas former leaders, along with two of Osama bin Ladens sons.
Shadow War: The Untold Story of How Bush Is Winning the War on Terror (Hardcover)
by Richard Miniter
The three vital, unanswered questions of the War on Terror are:
Where is Osama bin Laden?
Why hasnt there been another terrorist strike inside America since September 11, 2001?
Is President Bush winning the war?
Shadow War answers these questions. It unfolds during the first nine hundred eleven days of President Bushs War on Terror, from the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York and Washington, D.C., to the March 11, 2004 bomb blasts in Madrid, Spain. It is a story of sleeper cells and patient plots, phone intercepts and covert operations, boldly triumphant captures and heartbreakingly close escapes.
There have been many clandestine victories against al Qaeda. More than 3,000 al Qaeda operatives have been seized or slain in 102 countries since September 11, 2001.

The major media has missed some of the biggest developments in the War on Terrorwe get only headlines, sound bites, and snapshots. No record of victories, defeats, or draws. No big picture. Shadow War brings the big picture to life: The unreported story of the War on Terror is that we can win it, and that victories are being won every single day.
That location has always been a matter of controversy...
It is known as "Ali Ebn Abitaleb" IRGC Camp which might had been used to train Lebanese and Palestinian terrorists in early 1990s!
There is also a boot camp in North of Tehran by the former Shah's palaces belonging to "Hazrat Ali" Brigade (IRGC).
