What was the relationship between Saddam Hussein's inner circle and Islamic terrorists? A newly released document appears to provide evidence that in 1999 the Taliban welcomed "Islamic relations with Iraq" to mediate among the Taliban, the Northern Alliance and Russia, and that the Taliban invited Iraqi officials to Afghanistan.
The document, captured in Iraq but never before seen by the public, offers glimmers of new insight at the Pentagon's Foreign Military Studies Office Web site. The FMSO is a research and analysis center under the U.S. Army's Training and Doctrine Command.
This particular document mentions two men with similar names, each with ties to Pakistani religious schools known as madrassas, Jihad training camps, the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
This original translation by my translator-colleague, who goes by the nom de guerre of "Sammi," comes from a notebook kept by an Iraqi intelligence agent. It provides evidence of a cooperative, operational relationship agreed to at the highest levels of the Iraqi government and the Taliban. The notebook is lengthy and we will present it on the FOX News Web site in a series of postings. It deals extensively with meetings between Maulana Fazlur Rahman, an Al Qaeda/Taliban supporter, and Taha Yassin Ramadan, the former vice president of Iraq, and other unnamed Iraqi officials.
Cue exploding Moonbat heads...
Oh, and in the same post, His Majesty says this:
And, as if that wasn’t bad enough for the “reality-based community”, LS Mope now informs us that the terrible “Tax Cuts for the Rich” that were going to utterly ruin the economy and drown us in unbearable deficits (remember, to a liberal “fiscal restraint” means a marginal tax rate of 98% and a midnight basketball program in every community in the nation), that gruesome, unfair and downright cruel harbinger of the End Times has resulted in the economy growing like crazy, increasing tax revenues and threatening to cut the deficit in half in ‘06, three years early
Nevertheless, Bush is still the evil ChimpHitler bankrupter of America, yes? Don't worry, Bush-haters, you can still get him on Kyoto, right? Oh, except that not ratifying that useless, piece of crap is also entirely the right thing to do...
What on earth would CheChe say?
