Skip to comments.New Docs Reveal Osama bin Laden's Secret Ties With Iran

This week, prosecutors in New York introduced eight documents recovered in Osama bin Ladens compound in Pakistan as evidence in the trial of a terrorism suspect. The U.S. government accuses Abid Naseer of taking part in al Qaedas scheme to attack targets in Europe and New York City. And prosecutors say the documents are essential for understanding the scope of al Qaedas plotting.
More than 1 million documents and files were captured by the Navy Seals who raided bin Ladens safe house in Abbottabad, Pakistan in May 2011. One year later, in May 2012, the Obama administration released just 17 of them.
While there is some overlap between the files introduced as evidence in Brooklyn and those that were previously made public in 2012, much of what is in the trial exhibits had never been made public before.
The files do not support the view, promoted by some in the Obama administration, that bin Laden was in comfortable retirement, sidelined, or a lion in winter in the months leading up to his death. On the contrary, bin Laden is asked to give his order on a host of issues, ranging from the handling of money to the movement of terrorist operatives.
Some of the key revelations in the newly-released bin Laden files relate to al Qaedas dealings with Iran and presence in Afghanistan.
A top al Qaeda operative asked bin Laden for permission to relocate to Iran in June 2010 as he plotted attacks around the world. That operative, Yunis al Mauritani, was a senior member of al Qaedas so-called external operations team, and plotted to launch Mumbai-style attacks in Europe. . .
