  1. March 16, 2006 — Following are the ABC News Investigative Unit's summaries of four of the nine Iraqi documents from Saddam Hussein's government, which were released by the U.S. government Wednesday.

    The documents discuss Osama bin Laden, weapons of mass destruction, al Qaeda and more.

    The full documents can be found on the U.S. Army Foreign Military Studies Office Web site: http://fmso.leavenworth.army.mil/products-docex.htm.

    Note: Document titles were added by ABC News.


    "Osama bin Laden and the Taliban"

    Document dated Sept. 15, 2001

    An Iraqi intelligence service document saying that their Afghani informant, who's only identified by a number, told them that the Afghani Consul Ahmed Dahastani claimed the following in front of him:


    That OBL and the Taliban are in contact with Iraq and that a group of Taliban and bin Laden group members visited Iraq.
    That the U.S. has proof the Iraqi government and "bin Laden's group" agreed to cooperate to attack targets inside America.
    That in case the Taliban and bin Laden's group turn out to be involved in "these destructive operations," the U.S. may strike Iraq and Afghanistan.
    That the Afghani consul heard about the issue of Iraq's relationship with "bin Laden's group" while he was in Iran.

    At the end, the writer recommends informing "the committee of intentions" about the above-mentioned items. The signature on the document is unclear.

    (Editor's Note: The controversial claim that Osama bin Laden was cooperating with Saddam Hussein is an ongoing matter of intense debate. While the assertions contained in this document clearly support the claim, the sourcing is questionable — i.e. an unnamed Afghan "informant" reporting on a conversation with another Afghan "consul." The date of the document — four days after 9/11 — is worth noting but without further corroboration, this document is of limited evidentiary value.)


    "Election Campaign Laws in France"

    Documents dated July-August 1999

    Correspondence regarding election campaigns in France. This includes a document from the Iraqi intelligence service classified as "secret," ordering the translation of important parts of a 1997 report about campaign financing laws in France. It also includes a document from the foreign minister's office indicating the report was attached. The attached translated report included very detailed information about all the regulations regarding financing of election campaigns in France. Translation was done by someone called "Salam Abdul Karim Mohammed."

    (Editor's Note: This is an intriguing document which suggests Saddam Hussein's regime had a strong interest in the mechanics and legalities of financial contributions to French politicians. Several former French politicians are implicated in receiving oil vouchers from Iraq under the U.N. Oil for Food program.)

    :eek: :eek: :cool: :eek: :eek:

  5. If the guy came out tomorrow and disclosed himself there would be those who would claim liar, fraud, plant, whatever. This has not been about disclosure of anything from the start. And the truth be told, there is nothing that will change the minds of the hard core on either side.

    As for those who drift in the middle, they are comfortable there. Most have tuned out the noise from either side, until something catastrophic occurs. IMHO! :)
