Al Qaeda Document: Zarqawi Came to Iraq Before The War To Prepare The Fight Against U.S
Al Qaeda document | March 16 2008 | jveritas

Posted on 03/16/2008 2:49:59 PM PDT by jveritas

On February 17 2008, Al-Ekhlaas which is the largest terrorist forum on the internet published an Al Qaeda document that talks about the life of Abou Musaab Al Zarqawi and indicates that Zarqawi came to Iraq before the war to prepare the terrorist insurgency against the US troops. According to the document Zarqawi arrived to the Sunni areas in central Iraq. This document was written by one of Al Qaeda top leaders called “Saif Al Adel”.

There were many accounts about Zarqawi presence in Iraq before the war in particular in Northern Iraq with “Ansar Al Islam” an active Al Qaeda affiliated terrorist group that was present in the Kurdish areas of Iraq long before the war started. The document also proves that Ansar Al Islam helped Al Qaeda members establish themselves in Iraq before the war started.

The author of the document wrote that there were no relations between Saddam regime and Al Qaeda but this does not negate at all the most important fact that Al Qaeda was in Iraq before the war for the sole purpose of preparing for its most important front to fight the U.S and it is now in Iraq where Al Qaeda is suffering its most crushing defeat since its existence.

It is very important to note that despite the author of the document denial of a relationship between Saddam regime and Al Qaeda it does not mean that Saddam regime was not aware of Al Qaeda presence in Iraq. In fact the documents clearly points out that Zarqawi went to the Sunni areas in Central Iraq before the war and these areas were totally controlled and loyal to Saddam regime and it very hard to imagine that Zarqawi stayed and prepared his terrorist sleepers cells in these Sunni areas without the approval of Saddam regime.

El-Ekhlaas terrorist forum is a password protected so you cannot access the document unless you are registered there as a member.

Below is a partial translation of Al Qaeda document written by “Saif Al Adel”.

" We started the work and the contact with the leadership, and we began to support and help the leadership again, and this was our goal after we left Afghanistan. We began establishing the fighter groups. On one hand to return to Afghanistan and conduct planned operations there, and on the other hand we began to study the situation of the groups and bothers to find new places for them. After long discussions, brother Abou Mussab with his Palestinian and Jordanian companions decided to go to Iraq because of their dialects they can quickly mix and assimilate in the Iraqi society. Our analysis was that the Americans were going to make the mistake sooner or later to invade Iraq, that this invasion will lead to the fall of the regime, and that we should play an important role in the confrontation and resistance, and that this is our historical chance to establish the Islamic State who will have the biggest role in removing injustice and establish justice in this world allah willing. I was in agreement with brother Abou Mussab regarding this analysis. There were no relation between Al Qaeda and Saddam regime that is worth mentioning, as opposite to what the Americans are saying so they can create excuse and legal justifications according to their laws that they imposed on the world that is enslaved by the West, the Israelis and the Anglo-Saxons.

The plan was to have our brothers enter Iraq from the North, where the road is not controlled y the regime, and then go down South to the Sunni areas where we have some of our brothers. Also the brothers in “Ansar Al Islam” showed their willingness to give us any help to achieve this goal.

The Americans noticed that the Iranians were having a blind eye against our activities in Iran so they began a media attack against Iran accusing them of helping Al Qaeda and international terrorism. The steps taken by the Iranians had confused us and had caused 75% of our plans to fail. Many of our comrades were arrested. 80% of Abou Musaab Al Zarqawi group members were arrested. There should be a quick plan to arrange the escape of Zarqawi and the remaining of his group, the destination was Iraq and the route was the Northern borders between Iraq and Iran. The goal was to reach the Sunni areas in central Iraq and the beginning of the preparation to confront the US invasion and defeat it allah willing. The choice was not arbitrary but a studied one.

When he said goodbye to me leaving for Iraq, Abou Musaab has added a new dimension to his personality. This new dimension focused on punishing the Americans for the crimes that they committed in their bombing of Afghanistan and that he witnessed in his own eyes, the hate and hostility that Abou Mussab had for the Americans guaranteed to form new traits to Abou Musaab personality."

End of partial translation.

The war in Iraq ended up to be the ultimate war on terror. On one hand it got rid of Saddam terrorist regime and on the other hand it attracted Al Qaeda to Iraq and where the terrorists threw everything they had to fight the U.S in Iraq but they ended up with an utter defeat and our troops have absolutely destroyed Al Qaeda terrorists in Iraq.

I think in 10 years we will look back with that view....that the Iraq war was the decisive victory that weakened Al-Queda and eventually led to it’s failure as a terrorist group.

“I was in agreement with brother Abou Mussab regarding this analysis.”

LOL! As though Zarqawi was capable of ‘analysis’. These people are a bunch of illiterate, sub-retarded monkeys whose only purpose in life is to murder other people. They try to disguise their idiocy with religious verbiage, but in the end they’re just a bunch of chemically stupid serial killers.

Welcome back Joseph

Be interesting if Zarqawi and Mala Krekar worked together?

Here is that interesting article I had sent you on Krekar.

http://home.cogeco.ca/~konews/25-9-02-krekar-link-qaeda.html

Iraq Kurd said to admit bin Laden link

LONDON, Sept. 25 (UPI) — Mala Krekar, the leader of a Taliban-like Iraqi Kurdish group, has admitted to links with Osama bin Laden, according to an Iraqi Kurdish newspaper report Wednesday.

It is a certainty that Mullah Kerkar had relationship with Al Qaeda because he was the leader of Ansar Al Islam who according to the Al Qaeda document I translated above have expressed their willingness to offer any help necessary for Zarqawi and his terrorists to establish themselves in Iraq.

So, it was really the 11 United Nations resolutions and the 18-month "rush to war" that caused Al Qaeda to enter Iraq, not the US-led attack on Iraq?

99% of the reason why these lies have prevailed about Iraq are a lying, biased MSM, a treasonous Democrat party, and traitors in the CIA. It was George Tenet who took the lead in saying that there was NO CONNECTION between Saddam and 9/11.

But I will never understand why Bush went along with it. He did little or nothing to contradict these liars who were tearing him down, and several times he even seemed to say that the critics were right.

History may never correct these errors, because the leftists have controlled history for a long time, and will likely continue to do so.

A childhood neighbor of mine, Peter Braestrup, who once worked for the NY Times, wrote a fine book on the Tet Offensive, pointing out that we had won. It was well published, and reasonably widely read. But the media simply ignored or pooh poohed it. Many people on FR now know that we won the Tet Offensive, and could easily have won the war if we had had the will to do so, but few people knew it at that time, and relatively few people know it now.

If anything, the lies of historians and teachers about American history are getting worse, and few growing up now know as much as we did. I thought that the history I had—or didn’t have—in my public school years was bad then! But the wreckers were only getting started.

I ageee with your sentiment that in 10 years we will look back on Iraq as the decisive theater of operation that wins the long-term war for either us or them. I also believe that the choice of the next president will have a great impact on whose victory it is. With Mac, I'm confident the victory is ours. With Obama or Hillary, I just don't know either way... neither will want to go down in history as the president to lose the war, but then again neither has the combination of competence and policital willpower required to win a complex and confusing 4th generation war.

Maybe some of the cannon-fodder they send out to suicide/homicide for them are... but the top brass (you know, the ones who never do the suicide part, never allow themselves to be caught, never allow themselves to be killed) are pretty ingenious & conniving.

Only by thinking of them as evil geniouses instead of illiterate idiots do we outsmart them and outmuscle them.

Yet again Joseph, thank you for your expertise in finding and translating critical documentation. What galls me the most is that the CENTCOM Database is no longer accessible to the public, for people like yourself to be able to wade through, to find further proves that Saddam was up to his neck in supporting terrorist as well as pursuing the goal of atomic bomb development.
Surely had it remain open. By now you and some others such as Hayes and company, would have found dozens of new documents that would have simply driven the spike into the heart of the misguided wisdom that Saddam did not support state terrorist as well as his desire to possess the bomb.
At least we should be grateful for as much as you folks have been able to translate thus far. In this we are in debt to you. Yea. I know... you are simply doing your duty. But I again salute you for your time given to this important function.
Then again. By all indications when all the documentation and other sources you few had found and translated, perhaps the spike has been fully driven in. But the world does not know what so few of us have been given a glimpse of. Guess that is the way the cookie crumbled on this piece of current history.

Not to be mean or condescending but I have a hard time understanding how anyone could be a FReeper Post 9/11 and still not be aware of the connections made that have been logged in here at Free Republic showing irrefutable evidence showing Saddam's Al Qaeda and terrorism connections including WMD’s.

Its pretty hard to ignore all the articles, videos and translated documents posted.
