From the American Thinker, more on the interconnectedness of jihad and terrorist organizations.
Here’s what the documents tell us:
On February 26th, 1993 the first world trade center was attacked by al-Qaeda and the EIJ[Egyptian Islamic Jihad] (really two organizations that cooperated in 1993 and eventually merged).
A month later an official from EIJ was meeting with Saddam in Baghdad.
We have a document showing Saddam authorizing the IIS to “provide technical support” to the EIJ, and by extension, al-Qaeda.
And then al-Qaeda and the EIJ attacked the U.S. on September 11th, 2001 led by an Egyptian Jihadist, Mohammed Atta.
Now you have proof Saddam provided support to the EIJ and by extension al-Qaeda, both of which attacked us on 9/11.
I am less interested in the questions about Saddam than that we all keep firmly in mind that our enemies are part of a global movement. The documents referenced in this article, as well as these give you a window into this movement, where mujahideen network across Iran, Syria, Palestine, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Europe and elsewhere. The cartoon riots have shown us how skillfully these instigators can find and manipulate fellow travelers among their coreligionists.
