That Zarqawi- then of the al Tawhid group- and Mullah Krekar’s Ansar al Islam group are connected is old news.
Though Zarqawi's own terrorist group was in the region before the US invasion and Krekar's Ansar al Islam was as well, and though Zarqawi had long standing ties to AQ and crew with same, Zarqawi didn't formally swear the oath to Bin Laden until well after the invasion of Iraq. If you are a liberal you can try to CYA by noting he wasn't "real" AQ until he swore the oath, I suppose.
* Mohammed Atef : 24 Pakistani Peacekeepers in Somalia are ambushed, shot to death, skinned, and their remains paraded through the streets by a mob. [Author's note: in 1994/95 it is revealed by the Sudanese govt that an Al Queda operative based in The Sudan, and several other Al Queda operatives including #3 man Mohammed Atef, had gone to Somalia, trained Somalis in tactics that had been learned during the fight against Soviets in Afghanistan, and had they themselves taken part in this attack.] ---------- "PRE-BUSH timeline/list of Iraq's Ties To Al Queda," by Sam Pender-author of Iraq's Smoking Gun and other books on the matter , 6/12/04
You need to scan or copy that document and post it, or repost it.
The Demoncrats and the main-lining media need to be held accountable for the LIES that they have perpetuated against the WOT, but they won’t. The economy, after today, will supplant that. A shame, for the WOT is NOT won. Iran will continue on their quest for the BOMB unabated and will succeed, then the price we shall pay will be exponentially greater than any price paid by us - US before.
And of course, no one from the Bush administration will be out pounding the drums about this.
al-Zarqawi ran some of the training camps in Afghanistan. He was pure al-Qaeda.
Actually, she has a book, which I’ve been meaning to read. Gerald Posner, in “While America Slept,” mentions in a footnote that to many people, the Iraqi/Arab terrorist connections to OK City are still not conclusively ruled out.
There is an entire chapter on Ansar Islam’s presence in Iraq in “Masters of Chaos”.
Talks about their Iranian connection & the fact that their fortress close to the Iranian border contained a possible chemical weapons facility.

If you have the time these two interviews with Laurie Mylroie on Charlie Rose PBS program are very interesting. When Bill Clintons name is brought up in the 2002 video Charlie Rose gets very uncomfortable? wonder why.
Interestingly, the comment of jihadists sound like speeches of Democrats.
“That Zarqawi- then of the al Tawhid group- and Mullah Krekars Ansar al Islam group are connected is old news.”
I agree but Krekars court trial in Sweden is recent where a lot of new information has come out.
Krekar lived in Sweden
The trial was in Oslo Norway
Absolutley awesome work, jv.
Last week’s pentagon report was very slippery in claiming that there were “no direct operational ties between Saddam and Al Qaeda.”
Saying “no direct...” could mean “yes, there were indirect...” “ties.”
Saying “no operational...” could mean “yes, there were “training” or “logistical” or “intelligence” or etc “ties.”
Your translation demonstrates that there were definitely “indirect” ties.
