Documents Reveal Saddam Worked with Afghani Terror Groups
You won’t see this on the front page of the New York Times!
Translated documents from Iraq reveal that that an Iraqi manual directed terror operatives in Afghanistan:
An Arab regime, possibly Iraq, supplied how-to manuals for Arab operatives working throughout Afghanistan before 9/11, and provided military assistance to the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
The document, apparently written before the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, could bolster the Bush administration’s contention that Saddam Hussein was providing support for Islamic extremists who were plotting against America.
The training manual warns, in stark how-to terms, of the dangers of “information leaks,” and instructs Arab operatives inside Afghanistan to dress like Afghan tribesmen, to avoid being followed (“Routine is the enemy of security”), to always be armed, and “to behave as if enemies would strike at any moment.”
The manual also cautions Arabs to “beware of rapid and spontaneous friendships with Afghans who speak Arabic,” and “always make sure about the identity of your neighbors and classify them as regular people, opponents or allies.”
Robison last week revealed the contents of a 1999 notebook kept by an Iraqi Intelligence Service (IIS) operative. That notebook detailed how Saddam’s agents aggressively pursued and entered into a diplomatic, intelligence, and security arrangement with the Taliban and Islamist extremists operating in Afghanistan — years before the 9/11 attacks.
It really is inexcusable why other news outlets will not carry this major news story.
