Posted on 03/21/2006 3:18:32 PM PST by jveritas
In the Pentagon/FMSO document ISGZ-2004-009247 there is a clear report about the relation between Iraq and Bin Laden that dated back to 1995. This document contains a 9 page report from the Iraqi Intelligence Apparatus and it is titled The Saudi Opposition and Achieving the Relation and Contact With Them. In the report they talk about there meeting with Osama Bin Laden and that Bin Laden in 1995 and how to establish relations wiht him. In the meeting Bin Laden asked the Iraqis for joint operations with them against the Foreign forces (US military) in the land of Hijaz (Saudia or Saudi Arabia).
I did a partial translation of the report that is related to Osama Bin Laden

2. The Comission of Reform and Advise
Lead by the Saudi Osama Bin Laden who belongs to a wealthy Saudi family with her roots go back to Hadramoot and connected strongly with the ruling family in Saudia, and he is one of the leaders of the Arab Afghan who volunteered for Jihad in Afghanistan, and after the expulsion of the Soviets he moved to stay in Sudan in the year 1992 after the arrival of the Islamists to power in Sudan.
And because of his stands against the Saudi Royal family because of the foreign presence inside it, the Saudi authorities made a decision to withdraw his Saudi citizenship, and we moved toward The Comission from our side and through the following:
Translation of page 5
A. During the visit of the Sudanese Dr. Abrahim Al Sanoosi to the country and his meeting with Mr. Uday Saddam Hussein on 13/12/1994 and with the presence of the respectful Sir the Director of the Apparatus he indicated that the opposition person Osama Bin Laden who is staying in Sudan and who was cautious and fears that he will be accused by his opponents that he became an agent for Iraq, is ready to meet with him in Sudan (The results of the meeting were written to the Honorable Presidency according to our letter 872 on 17/12/1994).
B. The approval of the Honorable Presidency was granted to meet with the opposition person Osama Bin Laden by the Apparatus according to letter 128 on 11/1/1995 (attachment 6) and the meting with him was completed by Mr. M.A ex-4th Directory in Sudan and with the presence of the Sudanese Dr. Abrahim AL Sanoosi on 19/2/1995 and a discussion occurred about his organization, and he requested the broadcasting of Sheikh Sleiman AL Awada (who has influence in Saudia and outside since he is a known and influential religious personality) and dedicate a program for them through the station directed inside the country and make joint operations against the forces of infidels in the land of Hijaz ( the Honorable Presidency has been notified with the details of the meeting according to our letter 370 in 4/3/1995 attachment 7).
Translation of page 6
C. The approval of Mr. President the Leader God protect him was granted to dedicate and program for them through the station directed and we leave to develop the relation and cooperation between the two sides what open in front of it in discussion and agreement through other cooperation doors. The Sudanese side was informed about the approval of the Honorable Presidency above through the representative of the respectful Sir the Director of the Apparatus our ambassador in Khartoom.
D. Due to the latest conditions in Sudan and accusing her harboring of supporting and harboring terrorism it was agreed with the opposition person the Saudi Osama Bin Laden to leave Sudan to another place where he left Khartoom in the month of July 1996 and the information indicate that he is Afghanistan at the present moment. There is stil relation with him through the Sudanese side and we work in the present moment to activate this relation with him through a new channel in light of the current place where he stays.
This is the location where the airline plane body was spotted from satellite photos and it's use was suspected to be to train terrorist in techniques to hijack commercial air flights.
Every other fact is irrelevant-Bush lied....
NPR had on a Robert Malek (sp.?)this morning. He's written a book analyzing various 'insurgents/terrorists', and has a website. What do they want? To destroy western civilization? --- this wasn't even hinted at by Malek and NPR. Malek said they're disparate groups with individual agendas so the President might be wrong saying all terrorists are bad and need to be wiped out. Of course, it only takes one or two with a bomb to wipe out a city, Malek did admit that. (NPR was trying to make the President look like a warmonger.)

End of translation.
The confident means the agent source that the Iraqi intelligence is using and his is identified only by his number 1253.
Yes, but who were the Americans?
One day they'll realize -- it's ALL the middle eastern muslims against us.
There were WMDs.
Synopsis: IRAQI MINISTER OF DEFENSE CALLS FOR AN INVESTIGATION INTO WHY DOCUMENTS OF A WMD NATURE WERE FOUND BY A UN INSPECTION TEAM
The Smoking Gun!
You call THAT a smoking gun? *lol*
Would it have made any difference?
Is this what you refer to?
Damn good question,,,,
Every GOP talking head better start stating that there was a connection and it is proven in these documents and if any Liberal say there is no connection the GOP bettere slap them down with the simple statement PROVE IT. Why do the Republicans alwasy have to PROVE the connection. I say they need to PROVE there was no connection. Same with WMD. They existed now PROVE they were not moved. COMMON Sense says a connection existed i.e., The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
The President does not deserve to be treated this way. The GOP better start standing up for him.
This is MSNBC's spin. What else would one expect?
So now we have documentary evidence of what had been suspected - that there was a covert relationship between the Iraqi regime and Bin Laden. What other conclusion can you come to?
