This supposedly Saddam Intelligence Service document was published today on an Iraqi news site called Buratha news http://www.burathanews.com/news_article_20033.html and it talks about a scheduled meeting between Saddam Intelligence Service and Al Qaeda number 2 Aymen Al Zawahiri on December 14 2002 and per the request of Saddam Presidential Secretary to discuss an operation called Revenge inside Saudi Arabia that they refer to as the territories of the two holy shrines. Also according to the document Aymen AL Zawahiri was supposedly working for Saddam Intelligence Service as a source and his number was 1000.
Below is the translation of the document
The Republic of Iraq
The Presidency of the Republic

We would like to inform your Excellency that the date of 14/12/2002 was determined by the respected Secretary for the goal of the important and top secret meeting with our source number (1000) Aymen Al Zawahiri to agree on studying the prepared plan by the Respected Presidential Committee regarding the operation (Revenge) inside the territories of the two holy shrines with our source Izahar Al Sheikli and for the purpose of informing them about all the details of the plan put forth by the Secretariat of National Security council.

In my humble opinion I think that the style of the document does not match the many Saddam Intelligence service documents that I read so I suspect greatly that it is a fake document created recently. I hope that I am wrong because if this document is authentic it is yet another smoking gun that shows Saddam regime strong relation with terrorism and in this case his strong relation to Al Qaeda and their top terrorist leader Aymen Al Zawahiri.
Has anyone seen Dan Rather near a Kinko’s?
dude, you are the master.
Thanks for your hardwork and honesty. If it appears to be fake, we should treat it as such until proven otherwise, even though it would be fabulous news if true.
Good Work anyways, my friend, you are definitely Freeper of the Year!
I agree with the comment at the end. This does not seem a flowery as much of what has been translated previously. That calls its authenticity into question.
May be :)
I am just your humble freeper. I just wish if we can confirm that this is an authentic document.
Thank you RB.
Thanks for all of your hard work,
I Read the others that you translated.
They were much more “bureaucratic” shall we say.
Correct. There was common writing style to all of these documents, and you do not see the same in this document.
More irrefutable evidence for the liberals to play search and avoid with.
This smells more than just a little bit. A standard Clinton MO was to release a false story that could be discredited so when the real deal came along it was lumped together with the “other story” and thus discredited as well.
The liberal media would want very much for the conservative media to take this document as 100% correct so they can go ahead and attack us for believing a fake document. We should know their game earlier and not fall for it.
Thanks for your search for truth, Joseph.
