Skip to comments.Was Saddam Regime a Broker for Terror Alliances?
Posted on 06/25/2006 5:55:24 PM PDT by Names Ash Housewares
Newly declassified documents captured by U.S. forces indicate that Saddam Hussein's inner circle not only actively reached out to the Taliban rulers of Afghanistan and terror-based jihadists in the region, but also hosted discussions with a known Al Qaeda operative about creating jihad training "centers," possibly in Baghdad.
Ray Robison, a former member of the CIA-directed Iraq Survey Group (ISG), supervised a group of linguists to analyze, archive and exploit the hundreds of captured documents and materials of Saddam's regime.
This is the final installment in a three-part series concerning a notebook kept by an Iraqi Intelligence Service (IIS) agent called Khaled Abd El Majid, and covers events taking place in 1999. The translation is provided by Robison's associate, known here as Sammi.
The first two translations from this notebook detailed an agreement between members of the Saddam regime and the Taliban to establish diplomatic and intelligence based cooperation. This final translation further advances the link between the Saddam regime and world-wide Islamic Jihad terrorism.

Worth a look.
Thought you might find this of interest.
'Bout time this comes out.
Really bad couple of weeks for Democrats.
Looks like all they have left about why we attacked Iraq is "for the oil."
Thank you so much for remembering my intense interest in this, Jet. I appreciate it.
Ikez - you will want to look at this.

Bad month to be a liberal.
Yet another one.
Nope they cant use oil either. With oil prices as high as they are, folks are starting to warm to the idea of war for oil :-)
