Skip to comments.Document: Afghani Taliban Consul Spoke of a Relationship Between Iraq and Bin Laden See Translation
Posted on 03/16/2006 7:44:29 AM PST by jveritas
The documents of pre-war Iraq were published this morning on the Pentagon website, I did a quick search and I found a very interesting document written in Arabic and not yet translated to English. I did the translation and I found the following:
This document is a letter written by a member of Saddam Intelligence apparatus (Al Mukabarat) on 9/15/2001 (shortly after 9/11/2001) where he addressed it to someone higher up and he wrote about a conversation between an Iraqi intelligence source and a Taliban Afghani Consul. In the conversation the Afghani Consul spoke of a relationship between Iraq and Osama Bin Laden prior to 9/11/2001, and that the United States was aware of such a relationship and that there is a potential of US strikes against Iraq and Afghanistan if the destructive operations in the US (most probably he is referring to 9/11 attacks) were proven to be connected to Osama Bin Laden and the Taliban.
Below is a translation from Arabic to English of CMPC-2003-001488 document that was posted on Pentagon Website regarding the pre-war Iraq documents. (http://fmso.leavenworth.army.mil/products-docex.htm#iraq).
Text of the document in English translated from Arabic.
In the Name of God the Merciful
Presidency of the Republic
To the respectful Mr. M.A.M
Our source in Afghanistan No 11002 (for information about him see attachment 1) provided us with information that that Afghani Consul Ahmad Dahestani (for information about him see attachment 2) told him the following:
1. That Osama Bin Laden and the Taliban in Afghanistan are in contact with Iraq and it that previously a group from Taliban and Osama Bin Laden group visited Iraq.
2. That America has proof that the government of Iraq and Osama Bin Laden group have shown cooperation to hit target within America.
3. That in case it is proven the involvement of Osama Bin Laden group and the Taliban in these destructive operations it is possible that American will conduct strikes in Iraq and Afghanistan.
4. That the Afghani Consul heard about the subject of Iraq relation with Osama Bin Laden group during his stay in Iran.
5. In light of this we suggest to write to the Commission of the above information.

Kudos for translating this, jveritas.
The keyword to add to all the pertinent articles about Saddam's tapes is "prewardocs".
Eyespysomething is keeping a ping list and will want to read this.
Release of Classified PreWar Docs ping. If you want to be added or removed to this ping list, please Freepmail me.
Thank you for adding the keywords; I was just getting off the phone and going to do that.
All: Please note that eyespysomething is keeping a ping list and keyword for any article pertaining to Saddam's tapes is "prewardocs".
Please use your ping lists to get the word out.
Thank you very much Peach. I will be searching more documents and translating the ones that I see relevant. I hope more freepers will read this particular translated document because it is an important one IMHO.
Please put me on your ping list. Thanks again.
You know Arabic too?
That is GREAT!
LA LA La la
It is VERY important and I can't thank you enough for doing what you're doing.
Please be sure to ping eyespysomething with each document/thread regarding this matter. I'll be gone for 10 days but will read with great interest when I return.
IMO, this matter is vitally important on a number of levels, and we freepers need to find a way to get the word out. Activism is a must on these documents and I hope and pray freepers find a way to make time to send snail mail letters or make phone calls to their legislators regarding these tapes.
If Republican Congressmen understand that the president was correct in his assessment about Iraq and their ties to Al Qaeda, support for Republicans, the war in Iraq, the military and the president will increase to such an extent that democrats will actually lose seats.
I hate to tie all this to politics only, but if democrats get in power, the WOT is as good as over.
Thank you so much for your work, jveritas. You represent what FR does best and I appreciate and applaud your hard work.
I would love it if you can add prewardocs to the FR quick links header.
Wonderful job, jveritas.
Isn't this GREAT! We need to get word to the RNC, etc.
If they don't make commercials out of this stuff, they are too stupid to understand what PR means. LOL
That is an OUT for all naysayers and the MSM, so don't expect wide spread dissemenation and coverage of the doc dump, NO MATTER WHAT it reveals.
Isn't this incredible?
I'd like to ask freeper to call/write Ken Mehlman at the RNC and encourage him to have commercials made about some of these translations.
If he doesn't understand the importance of this, he should be fired and obviously knows diddly about PR.

Why didn't the Administration cite all the compelling evidence when they were first attacked by the Liberal airheads?? IMO, there has to be a lot that's being kept secret for some reason. I still don't buy into the notion that ALL the intelligence agencies were "wrong" including the Israelis. Makes no sense; never will. And, where's the investigation into the WMDs being in Syria?
