Al-Qaeda’s Rolodex

Al-Qaeda’s Rolodex

As many as 60 percent of the foreign fighters who entered Iraq in the past year have come from Saudi Arabia and Libya, according to documents discovered in a raid in September near the Syrian border, a senior U.S. military official in Baghdad confirmed to CNN Thursday.

But of course. This is nothing new. Saudi Arabia bankrolled the “Islamic Terror Network” when it was organized by way of CIA-ISI collaboration in Afghanistan. Does CNN think this is breaking news? Maybe it is for television watchers with fifteen minute memory spans. But for a few of us it is simply stale regurgitation.

As for Libya, they’ll do whatever the U.S. tells them, even if it requires acting as a patsy, because they don’t want to get bombed again. Libya was framed for Mossad’s Abu Nidal terrorism in Rome and Vienna back in 1985 and in response Reagan killed Muammar Gaddafi’s daughter. Now Gaddafi is onboard with the GWOT but if he thinks he is off the hook—after all, he’s an Arab and the neocons hate Arabs—I have a pony to sell him.

The documents confiscated in that raid listed the identities of more than 700 foreign fighters in Iraq, whom the United States believes entered that country since August 2006. The official describes the documents as “an al Qaeda rolodex.”

Classic! An “al Qaeda rolodex”! It really is amazing the way these stupid al-Qaeda guys leave stuff sitting around for the Americans to find. Remember when Air Force Brig. Gen. Mark O. Schissler said we’d be embroiled in a struggle against radical Islam for 50 to a hundred years? It shouldn’t take that long to defeat al-Qaeda, especially when they keep making boneheaded mistakes.

But then, of course, al-Qaeda is mostly smoke and mirrors, a name borrowed from a database of Afghan Mujahideen. CNN tells us the supposed al Qaeda rolodex is breaking news, even though, more than twenty years ago, the CIA created al-Qaeda as a front for Saudi bankrolling of the late Osama bin Laden. In the “Afghan war against the Soviet Union during the 1980’s and Riyadh and Washington together contributed an estimated $3.5 billion to the Mujahideen,” writes Richard Clark, one of the first guys to stand up and blame al-Qaeda on September 11, 2001.

I’m waiting for an al-Qaeda Blackberry to show up with emails between Osama, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and Ayman al-Zawahiri.
