Sounds like Ahmad was soiling his pants knowing full well that Iraq was deeply involved with Osama.
Also you notice in the second memo they were aware that the strike will be against Afghanistan but they were still taking all these military preparations.
You know, it wasn't all that long ago people were looking at me like I had two heads for saying that Saddam was up to his eyeballs in 9/11. Means, motive, and opportunity, he had them all, in spades. I guess I can take the tinfoil off now!
Very, very interesting,....and why Afghanistan.....so many questions.,....
This is important information, jveritas. Attorneys call it "consciousness of guilt".
Simon Reeve wrote an important book called The New Jackals. The book is primarily about Osama bin Laden and Ramzi Yousef.
There was important information that I've not seen reported elsewhere but that the reporter sourced quite well.
Two weeks prior to 9/11, Saddam put his troops on their highest state of alert since the Gulf War and put his two wives together into the same bunker. Saddam had never put those women together before because they detested each other. Then Saddam went into a secure bunker and didn't emerge until 10/01.
jveritas, you ROCK. :-)
Thanks for posting!
Very interesting. I hope I can find a document that talks about their military readiness orders two weeks before 9/11 and translate it. This will be very a important one.
Of all the translations that jveritas is doing this is one of the most important I'd say; I just wish someone would pick this up!
Maybe Tony Snow still surfs FR ocassionally, and can tell his boss about this; quit taking all the "Iraq wasn't involved in 9/11" guff!
[move to the Replacement Headquarters in case a strike occurred against Afghanistan.]
Curious that they would reposition and alert their people if it's a strike on Afghanistan.

C. Instruct to absolutely prohibit the use the wireless devices and the mobile phones in the evacuation sites and the replacement headquarters for the purpose of these sites security.
Just asking here, but ... these wouldn't be WMD evacuation sites by chance now would they?
I'm finding myself glad that Saddam's alive at the moment. Which is unusual.
Now if only we could get him off in a dark room with a pair of pliers and maybe...oh, I don't know, a chainsaw or woodchipper and start asking some questions.
When Saddam's Intel officer met with a broke al Queda in 1998, and then suddenly UBL had the money to finance preparations for 9/11 - that was enough for me.
I think so too.
Fox had a spokesman on this morning who is also translating documents. Unfortunately, his presentation was less than exciting. The F&F crew had to prompt him on what to say. Though Fox is on the right track, when they are on the air with this info, they and their spokesmen need to be more forceful and emphatic in presenting the evidence and interpreting its importance with respect to our attack and invasion of Iraq.
Thanks Allegra :) Are you hearing anything about the potential Ramadi offensive?
Joseph, this is more great work.
1998 is the key year for all of this. I wish I could post some of the stuff I've got on this....
Almost sounds like we've given too much credit to Usama for 9-11. Now add in the anthrax factor.
We are hearing about that. It's from chatting with the troops and hearing stuff on their radios, so I'd better not say too much.
I think it's safe to say that it sounds a lot like the chatter we heard just before Fallujah got theirs in November '04.
WALLACE: One other question from Iraq. I am hearing that the U.S. may have found new evidence of Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction program. What can you tell me about that?
SNOW: Nothing. At this point, what there have been on a number of occasions, as you know, Charles Duelfer, who used to be the head of the Iraq survey group, and others have said that Saddam was determined to try, to the best of his ability, to have a robust program of weapons of mass destruction, including reconstituting nuclear research at the earliest opportunity.
So it's no secret that Saddam had ambitions of weapons of mass destruction, but anything that may be uncovered as you know also, a lot of times you'll get pieces of evidence, and you need time to assess what's going on. So I'm afraid I can't advance that at this moment.
I posted this to you once before, but I still consider it a possiblity:

This topic brings back a freeper post durring the anthrax incident after 9-11.I can't remember the freeper's name, but I won't forget this "theory" on the topic.
His(or her)post came up with this possible answer:
What if the anthrax letters were actually a not-so-subtle threat by Saddam after 9-11??
The reasons for the "mini" anthrax attack, was to threaten the Bush administration if we were going to invade Iraq, because of the tie-ins with Al-Queda and Saddam's BIG role in training them and letting them use Iraq as a "terrorist basic training site" to attack the US.
Saddam was playing the Oil-For-Food (OFF) thing, and had no way to retaliate against the US in any open attack that could be traced back to him.
Therefore, the Anthrax was the way to go. The US was still smarting from 9-11, had the "Gorelick Wall" still in place,Homeland Security was in BARELY underway, and we didn't have ANY idea if a large scale attack was already set to go here with nothing but a "GO" signal to set it off.
If you were the Bush administration at that time, how would you respond to a threat like that?? The airlines were all going broke because of so many people afraid to fly after the 9-11 attacks. Can you imagine a country wide coordinated anthrax attack, with the USPS as the main vehicle, and major ventalation systems in some of the larger buildings, and then in say the major public transportation systems ALL AT THE SAME TIME??
The Bush administration could have been "blackmailed" very easily by Saddam and Al-Queda, by saying they would do a full blown attack if Bush tried to pin the first attack on him. The attack would have been very hard to prove and connect it on Saddam and Al-Queda in the UN arena, due to the state of our intellegence apparatus at that time, and all the UN member countries involved in it, who could have also been "blackmailed" by Saddam and Al-Queda by threatening to expose them in the scandal if they didn't keep obstructing the US from gathering international support for the US and coalition almost certain retaliatory invasion because of the 9-11 and anthrax attacks.
The Bush adminisration could also NOT GO PUBLIC with this information. It would have devestated the US economy, not to mention the mass panic and fear. No US mail delivery for an extended period of time,due to the leaking of information like that is almost unimagionable. The incubation period alone is such an effective weapon, that by the time we realized that a wide spread attack had taken place,.....well let's just say it would be a major "problem".
And what if this "theory" really was true???
I would have to consider a major anthrax attack on the US in the WMD catagory. Why haven't we found out who did it yet?? IIRC, the "type" of anthrax used was only available to approximately four different locations in the world, with one of the four being in Iraq.
Can you imagine being President Bush, knowing what he knew, but not being able to go public with it?? Knowing for the VERY SURVIVAL OF THE US, HE HAD TO RETALIATE, or the "mudlums" would know they were on their way to our total destruction because we DID NOT RESPOND.
And worse yet, having to take all the crap he's taking since then, because the WMD reason given for our invasion of Iraq, didn't find ANY "Weapon's of Mass Destruction" in Iraq, according to the MSM, and the Dems, and all the Bush haters.
And one more thing before I close...can you imagine if some of the major Dem politial anti-Bush bunch DO know about the situation Bush is in because of his not being able to expose it as yet, and are using it AGAINST HIM by painting Bush as a liar with this NO-WMD's in Iraq, so Bush is a liar mantra??.....
Sorry for the "rant", but IMHO, I considered that freeper's post kinda interesting.....
Outstanding sluething, jveritas.
Sure wish I knew of a way to provide you with a larger audience.
I've e-mailed your translations to and fro, and barely a peep from anyone.
Who was this guy?
Thank you for all your help and support. The truth will eventually come out.
Less than two months before 9/11/01, the state-controlled Iraqi newspaper Al-Nasiriya carried a column headlined, American, an Obsession called Osama Bin Ladin. (July 21, 2001)
In the piece, Baath Party writer Naeem Abd Muhalhal predicted that bin Laden would attack the US with the seriousness of the Bedouin of the desert about the way he will try to bomb the Pentagon after he destroys the White House.
The same state-approved column also insisted that bin Laden will strike America on the arm that is already hurting, and that the US will curse the memory of Frank Sinatra every time he hears his songs an apparent reference to the Sinatra classic, New York, New York.
Fitz Hollings read this on the floor of the Senate.
I always look forward to your posts!!!
Please do post it.
I will say this about the Fox efforts, I doubt they would be doing it if they thought it would be a dead-end. At some point the translations will reach critical mass and the evidence will not just be inferential or circumstancial. I credit your efforts with alerting the folks at Fox to take a look at these themselves. As Rush said yesterday, one day we will know the complete truth about Saddam and it won't be pretty for the DemonRats.
Thank you my fellow freeper.
Could it be that Saddam was afraid that we would come after the WMD that weren't there?!!!
Now this in connection with the fact that the link document directly implicates Sadaam's regime in attempting to recruit suicide terrorists in the U.S. is way beyond the burden of proof...
Inside Saddam's Regime
Military operations research analyst on what we can learn from Saddam documents
(link is broken, it may be fixed later; checking properties for the picture has a name "ff_robinson"
......we publicly stated,the day before these memos were written,that "Some lawmakers have called on the United States to include Iraq in any military action, believing Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has supported terrorist acts against America."
Not saying they weren't involved,but after a quick search I was able to find a CNN article from the previous day where we were implicating that Iraq was involved in 9/11.I'd expect as much from our government if another country accused us of bombing them as well.This could just be an alert caused by what was said the day before.
Didn't I hear that Iraq went to a high military alert on 9/11? I know it was from a reputable source, was it "Connections" or one of Miniter's books?

Another great job by jveritas. thoughtomator nails this with his simple question below:
"Now why would Iraq expect an attack in response to 9/11? Unless..."
I believe Con Coughlin or a Brit journalist did that story. Joseph should have it in a moment or two.
This seems to dovetail in with another one of your translated documents.
"Afghani Taliban Consul Spoke of a Relationship Between Iraq and Bin Laden"
From that translation dated Sept 15, 2001 the following seems to have taken place just prior to Sept 11, 2001.
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.
I am not quite sure what to make of it with your newly translated document. Was Iraq preparing because they thought the USA thought they were involved, or because they knew they were involved?
"Who was this guy?"
It was Ray Robison. I saw just a part of it before leaving for work.
There are no WMD, nor does the administration want us to know that there are no WMD. Because if there were WMD, where are they now?
Question. We have the best satellite capabilities in the world. We knew that hundreds of tractor trailers left Iraq for Syria in the days leading up to the war. How did we manage to lose track of hundreds of trucks? Unless we already knew what was in those trucks, who was driving them and where the trucks were going.
Which means there is only a couple of explanations.
1. Our intelligence service is incompetent (why didn't the Democrats stress this)
2. We preferred that if it was in fact WMD in the trucks, it is better to secure them and take the hit from the RATS about no WMD then to have the RATS say, how do we know we have found them all? That would cause a greater panic.
