Trove of Bin Laden documents reveal Iran’s secret dealings with al-Qaeda

A newly released trove of documents recovered from Osama bin Laden’s Pakistan compound have revealed “secret dealings” between Iran and al-Qaeda.

Nearly half a million files found on the computer seized in the May 2, 2011, US raid on the al-Qaeda founder’s hideout in Abbottabad were released by the CIA on Wednesday.

A never-before-seen 19-page document purportedly written by a senior member of al-Qaeda details an arrangement between Iran and members of the group to strike American interests in “Saudi Arabia and the Gulf.”

In exchange, Shia Iran offered Sunni militants “money, arms” and “training in Hizbollah camps in Lebanon.”

Justin is so keen on Iran, this will have him panting!

    I am suspicious of this. This 19 page document could easily be a CIA forgery they are not above planting fake evidence in order to drive a narrative. In the 16 years since 9/11 there has been no credible evidence that Iran was involved with Al Qaeda and now when the U.S. is trying to gin up war with Iran this 19 page document surfaces. Meanwhile there is a mountain of evidence the Saudi Arabia supported Al Qaeda and yet is is considered a “great ally” of America. Also Pakistan provided Bin Laden a safe haven in a town which is the Pakistan equivalent of West Point and yet is is considered something of a U.S. ally and a recipient of Billions in US aid.
