My book goes into great detail of the Zawahiri - Saddam Hussein link and the Rahman, blind cleric - Saddam link. Yes the EIJ and IG were financed, trained, and carrying out operations with Saddam’s Fedayeen army also known as the Popular Army, basically his private militia. This is all detailed in the memos and transcripts and then I put them into a historical context. Zawahiri flew into Baghdad on a meat cargo plane two weeks after the 1993 WTC bombing. Coincidence? I think not! I totally agree with your analysis. I found a memo where Saddam admits to giving the order for the 1993 WTC attack. I build on Stephen Hayes info that an IIS member met with a 9/11 hijacker in Malaysia. I found a memo discussing this same IIS agent going to Malaysia. Zawahiri actually made a bayat to Usama bin Laden in 1989 at the second al Qaida formation meeting. In 1989 Rahman was considered the spiritual leader of al Qaida. Al Qaida is actually quite complex with different departments such as a communications group, an identification group (passports, etc altered), religious group, etc. I include the trial transcripts detailing this in the appendix of my book. I have included over 100 pages of Iraqi memos, transcripts, and trial transcripts in the Appendix of The Link.
