Document http://www.ctc.usma.edu/aq/AFGP-2002-601693-Trans.pdf which is still up on the Harmony Data Base website is a captured Al Qaeda document in Afghanistan and shows without any doubt that Aymen Al Zawahiri who is the Bin Deputy and the so called Al Qaeda Brain had visited Iraq as well as he had visited Iran. The document does not indicate which year he did the visit but it is for sure after the year 1995 based on the context of the document. Other reporting from different sources said that there is an indication that Zawahiri visited Iraq in 1998, and this document confirms that he indeed visited Iraq. The document refers to him as Aymen but it is very clear he is Aymen Al Zawahiri because document mentioned that Aymen was the leader of Jihadists in Peshwar Pakistan and indeed Aymen Al Zahiri left Egypt in 1985 after his release from prison and went to Peshawar Pakistan to organize and lead some islamic terrorists there.
Saddam regime had established relations to Al Qaeda, and this is yet another important smoking gun about this relation. We have posted before on FR the Iraqi document that talked about a meeting between Bin Laden and the Iraqi Intelligence per Saddam authority where the meeting took place in Sudan in 1995. Only very few regimes had relation with Al Qaeda and Saddam regime was one of them. After 9/11 the President was absolutely right in removing this terrorist regime and the whole world is a better place without it.
This document is still up running on the harmony data base as you see in the link and it posted in both Original Arabic and its English translation. The Harmony Data Base list the captured AL Qaeda documents from Afghanistan published by The Combating Terrorism Center at West Point and it is different from the Docex/FMSO website of the Iraqi documents that was unfortunately shut last November.
I am very surprised that no one else in the Intelligence Community picked up on the content of this document that shows Ayam Al Zawahiri visit to Iraq. In fact the Senate Intelligence Committee per the influence of the democrats went all the way to deny that such a visit took place despite that they were reporting about it.
This is the SMOKING GUN.
Below are some excerpts form the document:
" ..Some of them went to Saddam; others went to Iran and so on . When the rest knew that AYMEN is the leader, and at the same time he and the others knew of all the people that had been arrested during the past seven months and the government did not announce that until it gathered them and named the organization Talae Al-Fath This is what happened on the outside of unbelievable events. AYMEN went to Iraq and Iran, and now he told Abu Mujahid Al-Filistini that he regretted writing Al Hasad Al Mur (Bitter Envy) and thinks that he rushed in ."
I just found this that give an absolute proof that Ayman refered to in the document is Ayman Al Zawahiri.
Among al-Zawahiri's works is a scathing attack on the moderate philosophy of the Muslim Brotherhood, titled Al Hasad al-Murr: al-Ikhwan al-Muslimoun fi Sittin Aman (The Bitter Harvest: The Muslim Brotherhood in Sixty Years). And that is from http://www.stratfor.com/products/wtr/read_article.php?selected=Terrorism%20Intelligence%20Report&id=239982
Therefore the document which says that "Ayman is the Author of AL Hasad Al Mur (The Bitter Harvest)" is for sure Aymen Al Zawahiri.
Admin: Is there a way you can include this in the body of the original thread to further proof that this man mentioned in the document is for sure Aymen Al Zawahiri. That is the SMOKING GUN DOCUMENT and if all possible to move it to the breaking news section. Thank you very much.
Iraqi documents, dating from January to May 1993, suggest that Baghdad’s
training of terrorists goes back over a decade - at least to the period
following Iraq’s August 1990 invasion of Kuwait. That training was
interrupted by the 1991 war, but appears to have resumed not long
These documents, leaked by a Pentagon official to Scott Wheeler of Cybercast
News Service, are posted on its Web site. Bruce Tefft, a retired CIA
counter-terrorism official who worked on Iraq; MEMRI’s Nimrod Raphaeli;
Middle East scholar Walid Phares; and this author have all expressed their
confidence in the documents’ authenticity. They are on official Iraqi
letterhead and are essentially a 40-page correspondence between Iraqi
intelligence and Saddam’s office.
Responding to a request from Saddam, M-14, the division of Iraqi
intelligence responsible for training and conducting special operations,
produced a report dated April 1, 1993. The seven page document lists 100
“Arab fedayeen,” whom it had trained in Iraq during the fall of 1990.Their
nationalities include a wide swath of the Arab world: Palestinians, Syrians,
Lebanese, Egyptians, Moroccans, Tunisians, Sudanese, and Eritreans, who are
not usually considered Arab.
One important relationship discussed in the documents is Iraq’s support for
the militant domestic opponents of the Egyptian government, a key Arab
member of the 1990-91 coalition against Iraq. Three weeks prior to the
Persian Gulf War, on December 24, 1990, Iraqi intelligence concluded an
agreement on a plan of sabotage against Cairo with a representative of the
Egyptian Islamic Group, whose leader, Shaykh Omar Abdul Rahman, was
subsequently tried and convicted for terrorism in New York. Those operations
ended with the February 28, 1991, cease-fire, according to these papers.
Excellent work jveritas. You are invaluable.
The importance of this smoking gun document should be known to as many people as possible. If at all possible, can you please place this thread in the breaking news section. It is up to you. Thank you very much.
bump to no. 6!
Maybe the Weekly Standard will pick up on some of this....
I hope so.
Here is the article of Dan Darling as published in the Weekly Standard on February 16 2006 : http://www.weeklystandard.com/Content/Public/Articles/000/000/006/761smqst.asp
I’m sure the white house knows this info...I believe they should hold a press conference all about it to put to rest the Iraq war doubters.
press conference with Condalesa and GW right away!

Good work. Now if only the administration would say something. You can bet the LameStream Media won’t say a friggin’ word about it.
Zawahiri was in Baghdad on Feb 3, 1998. Is this possibly a reference to that trip?
Why do you think the Intelligence Community did not look into the details of this letter?
Sometimes I feel there are many in our government who are working directly to sabotage our nations’ security.
And that is why these things do not get singled out as urgent information!
Excellent. Thank you Chris.
