Declassified doc Iraq show 3,000 Saudi and Iraqi mujihideen

March 17, 2006: Declassified documents from Iraq show 3,000 Saudi and Iraqi mujihideen depart Iraq in Nov 2001 to fight US in Afghanistan

The newly declassified documents shed more and more light on the evolution of the violent insurgency in Iraq, and show that Saddam Hussein’s government was aware not just of the presence of Al Qaeda terrorist Abu Mus’ab Al Zarqawi, but also was aware that the Anbar province in Iraq was being used as a launch point for organized groups of jihadis headed to fight the United States in Afghanistan.

The document, addressed to the Security Board, Fedayeen Saddam at the office of the Presidency in Iraq, reports what it describes as a “rumor”, says:

there is a group of Iraqi and Saudi Arabians numbering around 3,000 who have gone in an unofficial capacity to Afghanistan and have joined the mujahidin to fight with and aid them in defeating the American Zionist Imperialist attack

This clearly indicates that Iraq was being used as a transit point or launch point for Saudi Arabian jihadis, as well as Iraqis, who wanted to go join the forces of Osama Bin Laden in Iraq in November 2001, nearly a year and a half before the US and Coalition forces commenced military action against Saddam Hussein’s regime.

The sheer volume of “mujahideen” that reportedly departed from the Anbar province, combined with the presence of Zarqawi in Iraq, indicates the presence of an organized Al Qaeda infrastructure within Iraq just a few months after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.

The Anbar province is Iraq’s largest province and is located east and southeast of Baghdad. Anbar borders the neighboring states of Jordan, Syria, and Saudi Arabia, making it a popular transit point for the insurgents moving in and out of Iraq.

A complete translation follows:

In the name of God the most Merciful, the most Compassionate

Republic of Iraq

The Presidency

Fedayeen Saddam

Security Board

SECRET AND PERSONAL

Number: 1/22/11836

Date: 12/1/2001

To: Iraqi Intelligence Service

Re: Rumor

Greetings.

1. In the report on the status of rumors for November of 2001 regarding Fedayeen Saddam in al-Anbar, there is an entry that indicates that there is a group of Iraqi and Saudi Arabians numbering around 3,000 who have gone in an unofficial capacity to Afghanistan and have joined the mujahidin to fight with and aid them in defeating the American Zionist Imperialist attack.

2. After presenting the matter to the Supervisor of Fedayeen Saddam, he ordered that the matter should be looked into for verification of the truth of the rumor.

Please review and inform us.

"2. After presenting the matter to the Supervisor of Fedayeen Saddam, he ordered that the matter should be looked into for verification of the truth of the rumor"

So, is there a follow up doc saying it was a rumor or not?

Too bad the RINO's won't allow the "white flag" ad to be run again on TV

Pass this "white flag" ad from Dec 2005 around on the internet, it's from gop.com

http://www.gop.com/Media/120905.wmv

At least gop.com has not been taken over by the RINO's!

DRIP...DRIP...DRIP. You know this stuff will trickle out for months. The MSM will by in large ignore it. But like Nixon's tapes THEY WILL BE THERE for all to read and see for all history and this will vindicate GW in the eyes of history.

No way man. Saudi Arabia is our eternal friends.
We pay for their ability to kill westerners and for their "royal" family. If you think the Democrat elite is a bunch of pathetic turds you should look into the saudi turd "royals".
Personally I'd love to see the whole family overthrown and sent to allah.

Sad news...Time magazine, March 20th issue, page 63, paragraph 2, sentence 2. " SO OVER THE NEXT FOUR YEARS, SAUDI ARABIA WILL PAY FOR (STUDENT NAME) AND AS MANY AS 20,000 ( YES TWENTY THOUSAND ) OTHER YOUNG SAUDIS TO COME TO THE U.S. TO "STUDY".

I am not making this (bleep) up. CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS (BLEEP). You know....a smart demonrat could use this in his/her article of impeachment. FAILURE TO PROVIDE FOR THE COMMON DEFENSE VIA NEGLIGENT ACTION FOR ALLOWING ENEMIES OF THE STATE OPEN ACCESS TO AMERICAN SHORES.

I don't think we can use TIME links so I didn't bother posting this....but I thought maybe you could pass this on. I nearly threw up after reading it. I am so ( massive explentitives deleted by author) ticked off by this. Somebody has to wake these guys in the White House up....and soon!

Okay, so it's a rumor. That's interesting. It's not anything we could use to prove anything, though. Let's hope that some of these translated documents contain more concrete facts.

I really REALLY want to take some actual documented facts, written down in black and white, and shake them in the faces of the lefties. Supposedly there's an article coming out on The Weekly Standard on Monday that will connect more dots. Until then I'm not using any of this as reference material.

This may be true. It is undeniable that 17 of the 9/11 group were Saudi's. Saddam was funding Palestinian extremists, as was Saudi Arabia. KSA did not crack down on their homegrown terror cells until their economic interests in the kingdom were threatened. This is termed reluctant cooperation.

It is indeed. And everybody in the Bush administration knows it. The Saudis are not our friends. Nevertheless, they have something we want and it would be contrary to our interests to act honestly and ethically towards them. Instead we refer to them as allies. This is called politics.

I am a flight instructor in Florida, where 80-90% of all the pilots in the world are trained.

I can tell you for a fact that most of the SA students are/were funded by that Government. - They were mostly terrible students.

In fact, the House of Saud owned most or all of Flight Safety International, right in Vero Beach.

However, I do not know the present arrangememnts.

Hey, the site also has a doc that says that Kuwaiti POW's were to be used as human shields. That means that Sadam had POW's from 1990 still in custody in 2003. Where was Amesty International? Where was the Red Cross?

We hear everyday how bad Guantanamo is. How about holding POW's for 11 years after the conflict is over?
