If True: Huge

By Steven Taylor @ 9:33 am

I saw this on Hardball last night, and, if true (and I will give it time to mature) is huge: Terrorist behind September 11 strike was trained by Saddam

Iraq’s coalition government claims that it has uncovered documentary proof that Mohammed Atta, the al-Qaeda mastermind of the September 11 attacks against the US, was trained in Baghdad by Abu Nidal, the notorious Palestinian terrorist.

Details of Atta’s visit to the Iraqi capital in the summer of 2001, just weeks before he launched the most devastating terrorist attack in US history, are contained in a top secret memo written to Saddam Hussein, the then Iraqi president, by Tahir Jalil Habbush al-Tikriti, the former head of the Iraqi Intelligence Service.

The handwritten memo, a copy of which has been obtained exclusively by the Telegraph, is dated July 1, 2001 and provides a short resume of a three-day “work programme” Atta had undertaken at Abu Nidal’s base in Baghdad.

There is also mention of:The second part of the memo, which is headed “Niger Shipment", contains a report about an unspecified shipment - believed to be uranium - that it says has been transported to Iraq via Libya and Syria.

Of course, it is interesting that Abu Nidal committed “suicide” (at the hands of Saddam’s secret police) a few months after 911.

  1. When I saw it on Saturday, it sure got my attention. There’s an article on NRO today that has some more information too.

  2. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out. I’ve seen a couple stories on this now-starting with a Guardian (or Spectator) piece late last week.

  3. Would be great if true. Looks like a huge forgery in waiting though. One document that proves both open issues? The only thing that would have made it more likely to be fake is if Part III talked about how the whole thing was a scheme to prevent ratification of the Kyoto Environmental Treaty.
