Hundreds of members of Saddam Husseinís regime found working with al Qaeda in Iraq
Regime of Terror ^ | July 23, 2007 | Mark

These captures and kills demonstrate the ideological divide between “secular” Baathists and Islamic extremists was not so distant

Many analysts of the insurgency in Iraq are currently debating its makeup and strength, among other things. Regardless of what percentage is currently claiming allegiance to what ideology or group, the past few years of reporting have slowly revealed that at least one deadly aspect of the insurgency in Iraq has been the cooperation of some members of Saddam Hussein's regime (though not all) and Islamic militants, particularly al Qaeda in Iraq.

Below is a list, compiled from a number of media reports over the past few years, of the names and backgrounds of some of those found to have supported or worked for the former Baath Party of Saddam Hussein's Iraq and also al Qaeda. Parts of this list were cited by World Net Daily in a story about postwar links between members of Saddam Hussein's regime and al Qaeda elements in Iraq.

No prob. This is the list I’ve been working on for the past few years. Last few days have seen a few more people to add though.

Good find. There were also SAUDI hijackers who just so happened to safely land the plane in Iraq and were given “safe haven” by Saddam in 2002 after hijacking a passenger plane and sending all the citizens back to their home countries.

Are you the owner of regime of terror.com ?

I found your videos on youtube, and your website is GREAT.

I’m making my own investigation on the subject. I have written about 100 articles on the subject so far, from different sources (French, US, Iraqis...) and I have gathered all my stuff on my blog.

It is in french but translation is available on the upper right of the blog:

http://leblogdrzz.over-blog.com/article-5660166.html

ps : DID you know that the Saddam’s chief of protocol confirmed Saddam had ties with Al-Qaeda, several camps built for terrorists and trained these terroriste to hijack the same plane as those who stroke the WTC ?

Which is ABSOLUTELY not the case. You can see on my blog :

Great article Mark.

It will be even more powerful if we can find out if these ex-Saddam regime officers that you mentioned were working or had contacts with Al Qaeda during Saddam rule. I am sure that some of them already did as the Iraqi documents reveal the meeting of Saddam intelligence with Bin Laden in 1995, and an Al Qaeda document talks about of Ayman Al Zawahiri to Iraq in 1999.

Actually the US army has the guy you need in custody :

Faruq Hijazi, who travelled several times to Afghanistan to meet Bin Laden, and who was captured in April 2003.

The training of the foreign Arab terrorists called by Saddam regime "Al Feedayeen Al Arab" (Arab Feedayeens) went way after 1993 and all the way till the fall of Saddam as this documents shows. In fact in April 2003 a document shows that Saddam gave an order to treat the Arab Feedayeens (terrorists) like Iraqi Special Forces and give them the same wages and benefits.

When the so-called secularist Saddam Hussein found himself in trouble after the invasion of Kuwait in 1990 he embraced the Islamists and changed the Iraqi flag to include the words “God is Great”. The secular Baathists went along (the Baath of Michel Aflaq had been an attenuated force for years). Prior to the invasion of Iraq in 2003 Saddam made it a point to embrace the Islamists, and again the so-called Baath went along. They are opportunists, and with Saddam dead they see their return to power only possible by an alliance with foreign Islamists (al-Qaeda) who are providing much of the determined fighters in the war for Iraq. The information should shock no one.

If you guys think this is important maybe you can call the following members of the House intelligence committee and ask them to use their positions on that committee to look into this.

Then we might really get somewhere.

Heather Wilson 202-225-6316
Robin Hayes (202) 225-3715
Terry Everett (202) 225-2901
Peter Hoekstra (202) 225-4401
Mac Thornberry (202) 225-3706
Todd Tiahrt 202.225.6216
