    In his televised testimony, El-Adly stated,

    In May 2001, we received information that a very huge terrorist attack will happen in the USA. How? The source of the information was inside the lair of Al-Qaeda. And we verified it, that there were preparations for the attack.

    I talked to the President (Mubarak) and I told him that I have information that a huge terrorist attack will happen in the USA, and I asked him if we should tell them [the Americans]. He said “OK.”

    We contacted the CIA and FBI and told them about the information, they said “Thanks.”

    On August of the same year we received the information that the (operation) entered its course of implementation (is entering its final steps).

    An operation like this takes time, preparations and arrangements, etc. This conversation was recorded between us and the source. I called the President and told him the information is confirmed, “Should we tell them?” He said “Tell them.” We called the people in the USA and told them that the operation entered the course of implementation. They said “OK” and “Thanks.”

    Then the attack on the WTC happened. This was the operation. Do you see how cooperative we were?!?! This is why I am furious and enraged. I cooperated with them, and in return they hit my organization and destroyed (ruined) the country (Egypt)!!!

    *Al Qaeda can be blamed for conducting the attack and the Bush administration for ignoring all the warnings.*

    The others, except perhaps Myanmar, have active military interventions and lack the scale of Iraq.

    was a lot of weapons diversion for sure. CIA still ( last I looked ) was training in Jordan - although with the refugees, it's hard to get data.

    Hillary Clinton is an IDIOT, making noises about how we should have armed the Rebels ( non-jihadi) -it would have take more then just arms,we would have to impose no flys..

    and you already know what a disaster that was for Libya -our "humanitarian war"

    However, the moment a treaty is signed defining borders. We need to put a ton of un troops there to enforce it until there is a cooling off period. Thats their only long term chance I think.
    it's going to self-partition, and the borders will be set by the players, no need to draw maps this time. I imagine those borders will be "flexible" -in that it's going to take awhile to settle out.

    Baghdad though.....that's a big one

    What does the unsubstantiated claim of a former Egyptian interior minister prove?

    So just let the ISIS massacre of the Yazidis continue is what you're stating.

    I'm not a proponent of the US being in the ME until they attack the US again, which IMO they eventually will.

    However, not ending the religious genocide in Iraq by Islamists makes the US as bad as the mass murderers.

    agree, but they can stalemated their advances, and hold the Mosul dam with our air support.

    The crisis gripping Iraq escalated rapidly on Thursday with a re-energized Islamic State in Iraq and Syria storming new towns in the north and seizing a strategic dam as Iraq’s most formidable military force, the Kurdish pesh merga, was routed in the face of the onslaught.


    The loss of the Mosul Dam, the largest in Iraq, to the insurgents was the most dramatic consequence of a militant offensive in the north, which has sent tens of thousands of refugees, many from the Yazidi minority, fleeing into a vast mountainous landscape.

    Right, but then it spread across the ME. All the countries that are at issue here, Iraq, Syria, Lybia, Egypt (and we're not even talking about the countries in the Arabian Peninsula that had to deal with minor uprisings) all stem back to the Arab Spring. Just saying that this all doesn't boil down the US Policy in this case. Even if we hadn't invaded Iraq, Saddam would of still had to deal with the issue of ISIS just as Assad is now.
