“The memo, authored by Iraqi intelligence chief Tahir Jalil Habbush al-Tikriti, is dated July 1, 2001, and describes the ‘work program’ undertaken by Atta at a base in Baghdad run by notorious Palestinian terrorist Abu Nidal.” I wonder if that ‘work program’ could be Salman Pak, the training center that had the empty airline fuselage where terrorists were trained in hijacking.
The story continues: “If authentic, the document would be the first explicit evidence implicating Iraq in the attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, since it makes a direct reference to what appears to be the 9/11 plot. In one passage, the Iraqi intelligence chief reportedly informs Saddam that Atta had demonstrated his capability as leader of the team ‘responsible for attacking the targets that we have agreed to destroy.’ Iraqi officials refused to disclose how and where they had obtained the document, the paper said. But Dr. Ayad Allawi, a member of Iraq's ruling seven-man Presidential Committee, said the document was genuine. ‘We are uncovering evidence all the time of Saddam's involvement with al-Qaeda,’ he told the Telegraph.”
