Crosswalk ^ | 6.21.2004 | McCullough/Pentagon

LONDON (from compiled intelligence briefs) - Al-Qaida had extensive contacts with Iran's Ministry of Intelligence and Security, as well as with an elite military unit which helped the terrorists train and plot attacks against Americans, according to a former intelligence officer who recently fled Iran.

Hamid Reza Zakeri, a former inspector and director of Iran's Revolutionary Guards and Ministry of Intelligence, or MOIS, member said models of the World Trade Center, the White House, Pentagon and other United States government buildings "were in our headquarters."

In an explosive interview with a London-based Arabic newspaper last week, Zakeri stated that al-Qaida leader and Egyptian terrorist Ayman al-Zawahiri, a key aide to Osama bin Laden, has close ties with the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps-Qods Division, which is Iran's Islamic shock troops.

This is huge news, but it will go away quietly.

Do you think anyone in the CIA is reading this thread..NO

Do you think anyone from the West Wing is reading this thread..NO

Do you think that maybe, out there in cyberland, there's an honest FBI or Homeland Security Agent reading this thread..NO

Is anyone investigating whether Jamie Gorelick has Iranian ties...NO

just move along ... nothing is happening

Actually it is old news. He warned the US in Azerbaijan of impending attack to the homeland in 2001. He was ignored. Those attacks were 9/11. Be warned this guy might spew junk to keep America "happy" like Chalabi did about Iraq.

And the left is complaining about the President's "Axis of Evil" the same way they complained about Reagan's "Evil Empire".

Iran is a member of the axis of evil. It's time to transfer power in Iraq and get moving on liberating Iran.

I don't know about Jamie Gorelick's ties to terrorists, but I read this morning in the WSJ that Nancy Luque is representing the Herndon VA Muslims that are being investigated for terrorist ties. Nancy Luque was a Clinton lawyer. The Clintons seem to get someone inside of every major case to do damage control.
