The Timing Of The Iraqi Air Force Memo

****************************AN EXCERPT*********************************

Now that we have established the translation of the memo from the Iraqi Air Force general to all units requesting volunteers for suicide missions against American "interests", the timing of the memo appears to fit into a disturbing sequence in the months prior to 9/11. This memo is dated March 17, 2001, less than six months prior to the coordinated al-Qaeda attack on the US, at a time when the AQ plotters and pilots appeared to be in close proximity to Iraqi intelligence agents in Europe.

Yes. And let's not forget about Iraq's Saman Pak, where arab terrorists were trained to, among other things, commander a commercial aircraft.

What is also interesting about the timing is that it is immediately after Bush was elected. Kind of looks like Saddam knew he was screwed. http://rayrobison.typepad.com/ray_robison/2006/04/saddams_support.html

Very good work by the Captain in ferreting out the arrest of the two Iraqi Intelligence agents in Germany. It certainly appears that Saddam's regime was working along the same lines as Al Qaeda.
