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.

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.
IMHO, it will be twenty years before the MSM is ready to admit their BDS-influenced bias.
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 guess he was not willing. Just sayin...
“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.
AQ was in America before 9/11. Why would anyone with common sense think that AQ wasn’t in Iraq before the war?
Here's why we are so reluctant to go to war against Iran...
Great find, jveritas.
Excellent work...thanks so much...
Welcome back Joseph
Be interesting if Zarqawi and Mala Krekar worked together?
Here is that interesting article I had sent you on Krekar.
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.
Thank you for your work to bring out the truth.

Thank you very much, let us spread the truth.
Does hussein obama know this????
I had the document for few weeks but I waited until the right moment to publish it here on FR.
Superb find, jveritas.
Now he will but he will dismiss it, as will Hillary Clinton, liberals, and their media dismiss it.
“These people are a bunch of illiterate, sub-retarded monkeys...”
No they are not. They are generally well educated and very well financed.
If this is true then why isn’t CNN stating that this is proof Al Qaeda was in Iraq before the invasion? (sarcasm)
Can you post a link to thesite and this document?
The DNC has told us that............
It might be time to make another video.
Let’s do it :)
Purposeful denial. MSM stuff. Newspeak. Subversion. Treason. You know, the things that used to be important to the survival of a republic. Down the memory hole.
That is the link to the thread on Ekhlaas terrorist forum http://ekhlaas.info/forum/showthread.php?t=124250, as I said yo need to register to access it.
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.
“A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”
And the media takes full advantage of that
Well well well. Now, do you think the msm will report it?
Nonsense. The insane jihadists are content turning their own country into a shit hole and discriminating against Christians. That’t why I’m here talking to you.
They are too busy to pay attention to bigger things.
Well, I think of most any terrorists, no matter where they’re from as lower form like monkeys.
But that is just my opinion.
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.
Thanks again jveritas...
I won’t live to see it but in fifty years W will be regarded as a hero for being the first to truly understand the threat pointed at western civilization
As a side note on border security or the lack thereof, this is tucked away in the document:
The plan was to have our brothers enter Iraq from the North, where the road is not controlled y the regime
Its pretty hard to ignore all the articles, videos and translated documents posted.
