Posted on 03/21/2006 3:18:32 PM PST by jveritas
In the Pentagon/FMSO document ISGZ-2004-009247 there is a clear report about the relation between Iraq and Bin Laden that dated back to 1995. This document contains a 9 page report from the Iraqi Intelligence Apparatus and it is titled The Saudi Opposition and Achieving the Relation and Contact With Them. In the report they talk about there meeting with Osama Bin Laden and that Bin Laden in 1995 and how to establish relations wiht him. In the meeting Bin Laden asked the Iraqis for joint operations with them against the Foreign forces (US military) in the land of Hijaz (Saudia or Saudi Arabia).
I did a partial translation of the report that is related to Osama Bin Laden
(Translation of Part of Page 1)
In the Name of God the Most Merciful and the Most Compassionate.
The Saudi Opposition and Achieving the Relation and Contact With Them
(Translation of part of Page 4)
2. The Comission of Reform and Advise
Lead by the Saudi Osama Bin Laden who belongs to a wealthy Saudi family with her roots go back to Hadramoot and connected strongly with the ruling family in Saudia, and he is one of the leaders of the Arab Afghan who volunteered for Jihad in Afghanistan, and after the expulsion of the Soviets he moved to stay in Sudan in the year 1992 after the arrival of the Islamists to power in Sudan.
And because of his stands against the Saudi Royal family because of the foreign presence inside it, the Saudi authorities made a decision to withdraw his Saudi citizenship, and we moved toward The Comission from our side and through the following:
Translation of page 5
A. During the visit of the Sudanese Dr. Abrahim Al Sanoosi to the country and his meeting with Mr. Uday Saddam Hussein on 13/12/1994 and with the presence of the respectful Sir the Director of the Apparatus he indicated that the opposition person Osama Bin Laden who is staying in Sudan and who was cautious and fears that he will be accused by his opponents that he became an agent for Iraq, is ready to meet with him in Sudan (The results of the meeting were written to the Honorable Presidency according to our letter 872 on 17/12/1994).
B. The approval of the Honorable Presidency was granted to meet with the opposition person Osama Bin Laden by the Apparatus according to letter 128 on 11/1/1995 (attachment 6) and the meting with him was completed by Mr. M.A ex-4th Directory in Sudan and with the presence of the Sudanese Dr. Abrahim AL Sanoosi on 19/2/1995 and a discussion occurred about his organization, and he requested the broadcasting of Sheikh Sleiman AL Awada (who has influence in Saudia and outside since he is a known and influential religious personality) and dedicate a program for them through the station directed inside the country and make joint operations against the forces of infidels in the land of Hijaz ( the Honorable Presidency has been notified with the details of the meeting according to our letter 370 in 4/3/1995 attachment 7).
Translation of page 6
C. The approval of Mr. President the Leader God protect him was granted to dedicate and program for them through the station directed and we leave to develop the relation and cooperation between the two sides what open in front of it in discussion and agreement through other cooperation doors. The Sudanese side was informed about the approval of the Honorable Presidency above through the representative of the respectful Sir the Director of the Apparatus our ambassador in Khartoom.
D. Due to the latest conditions in Sudan and accusing her harboring of supporting and harboring terrorism it was agreed with the opposition person the Saudi Osama Bin Laden to leave Sudan to another place where he left Khartoom in the month of July 1996 and the information indicate that he is Afghanistan at the present moment. There is stil relation with him through the Sudanese side and we work in the present moment to activate this relation with him through a new channel in light of the current place where he stays.
I hope that I am not keeping you busy :)
I always like to point out the amazing coincidence of how Osama bin Laden left Sudan nearly broke and that Saddam Hussein was also nearly broke at the same time.
Then a couple years later with the Oil For Food program, both suddenly found themselves flush with cash.
Saddam had the oil and the corruptible United Nations running the Oil For Food program. Osama bin Laden had the financial network and supporters who could translate Saddam's vested interest in the oil for food program into money for both of them.
I'm assuming that the 9/11 commission DID NOT have these documents?
The Smoking Gun!
Good work, man, keep it up.
jveritas-Continuing thanks for your efforts....
Deeply appreciate the time and effort you're putting into this, jveritas. A loud and thunderous "Thank You!"
NO! No connection! No! We won't allow this to be true! It's not allowed! Noooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!
keep up the good work.
Trust me, it's OK!
After reading quite a few of the audio transcript translations, the following also appeared to have happened. For the first few years after the Gulf War 1, Saddam's regime was working hard to get the UN sanctions lifted. Around 1995 they became to believe that their was no way they could get the sanctions lifted. They then began to plan military offensives which led up to their move on Arbil in 1996. So 1995 seems to be when Saddam's regime basically gave up on trying to get the sanctions lifted. It would be interested to cross reference as to when that terrorist training plane within Iraq was setup.
Honestly, how are you translating these documents?
I think it's great but do you have a program or something like altavista babblefish that allows you do do so?
Be assured not just us freepers are reading your important work here. The MSM and others of influence do use FR as an information outlet.
You won't get any credit later, but we know and you know. FR has been doing this sort of thing for years.
We are the media.
But I could swear The Weekly Standard reported on this about two years ago!!

Release/Translation of Classified PreWar Docs ping. If you want to be added or removed to the ping list, please Freepmail me.
I'm assuming it wouldn't have mattered if they had :(
The association of Iraq and al Qaeda was cited in the Clinton administrations's indictment of bin Laden for the African Embassy bombings. The Iraqi-Sudan-al Qaeda association was not unreported either.
You are doing a fantastic job corroborating what was known and what in the past, the same press that denies any connection, reported prior to 911.
Almost three years ago I posted a review, here with the NY Times article and the US Indictment.
Other freepers have an even better inventory of articles or documents relating to the subject.
May I get on the ping list please?
