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.
Please view Yours With regards

Foot note: Immediately send to the Chairman of Commission
No way. I only trust Murtha, Lurch, Hair plugs, and the Waxy faced bee-yatch.
If the MSM can be convinced that the documents are somehow related to global warming, they'll reprint them without question.
Oxen - you will be seeing a lot of these articles; please make sure the key word "prewardocs" is used, if you can. Thanks.
I'll be gone for 10 days but will find it easy to get caught up if everyone makes sure we use keywords for our searches.
It looks like my Good News For Iraq ping list has the potential of overlapping with Pre War Docs.
I know from experience in my freepmail box that some of you are very specific with what you want to be pinged about. Since I didn't make this list but agreed to continue it, we tend to bump heads.
I'm planning on pinging this GNFI list to Pre War Docs that I deem important. If you want to be on a continuous update of these docs, see EyeSpySomething.
If you don't want to be pinged to Pre War Iraq info, freep mail me and I can take you off the list. You can always use the FR keywords: 'GNFI, GNFA, procoalition' and select what you want to read.
I think maybe it was for countries who we considered allies (for whatever reason) at that moment, and maybe the administration is freer now to release info.
There had to be a reason, surely they just wouldn't have.
Maybe Negroponte had his own reasons?
Thanks for the translation.
Bump for later.
I thought this was a good place to put this link also which traces Saddam's relationship with Al Qaeda going back to the 1990's.
I expect when I return in a week this list will have to undergo a major update!
We have an article here at FR where Bush was asked about these docs during an interview and he was cited as saying something about some legal lawyers owning this information. I'm going to look for that post now.
Good post, JV.
Well then, what do you suggest?
Do WE ignore them, throw them away....pooh-pooh them???
What is said in THIS document makes a lot more sense than the idea that there was NO link ever, between Iraq and Bin Ladin...or that there hasn't been any WMDs since the first Iraq War, which is what the dems would want people to believe.
I hope there were some links. But it's going to be really hard to convince me that the links were strong enough to justify taking over the entire country, spending hundreds of billions and killing so very many people.
The invasion of Iraq will stand or fall on whether the people of Iraq end up liberated and free with a friendly democratic government. If we do that then history will remember us kindly. That's why Murtha, Cindy and company are such a serious threat - they want us to run away with the job half finished.
I think the DNC has established that there was no relationship between anything prior to Bush getting into office and Bush lied ....Please do not attempt to look for new information
This is amazing information!
