Saddam Ordered Suicide Attacks on U.S. Targets

A newly translated document from Saddam Hussein's intelligence files indicates that the Iraqi dictator ordered suicide attacks against U.S. targets six months before the 9/11 attacks.

Dated March 11, 2001, the Iraqi memo reads:

To all the Units

Subject: Volunteer for Suicide Mission

The top secret letter 2205 of the Military Branch of Al Qadisya on 4/3/2001
Announced by the top secret letter 246 from the Command of the military sector of Zi Kar on 8/3/2001
Announced to us by the top secret letter 154 from the Command of Ali Military Division on 10/3/2001

We ask to provide that Division with the names of those who desire to volunteer for Suicide Mission to liberate Palestine and to strike American Interests and according what is shown below to please review and inform us.


The document is signed by Air Brigadier General Abdel Magid Hammot Ali.

While the big media has so far ignored the find, Captain's Quarters blogger Ed Morrissey notes:

"If this translation stands up to further scrutiny, it will provide a substantial answer to the question of Saddam's role in terrorism, both in general and specifically aimed at America.

"This memo will prove that Saddam had no intention of remaining neutralized in the region. He not only funded and encouraged terrorism, but he actively recruited terrorists from the ranks of his own military to carry out suicide attacks on American interests."

This is no suprise to anyone who was paying attention.
After the First Gulf War, he became increasingly involved with Muslim Fundementalists.
While I doubt he was directly involved with the Sept. 11 attacks, he certainly trained some Al Qaeda guys at the camps in Iraq.

UPDATE:

In response to criticism that the translation of this document might be flawed, Ed Morrissey has hired two professional translators - each working independently, with no knowledge of the other. The results were virtually identical to the original translation: Saddam was soliciting suicide bombers to attack America, approximately 6 months before 9/11.
