The Iranian regime was providing “monetary and infrastructure assistance” to Al-Qaeda according to a letter signed by terrorist leader Ayman al-Zawahiri that was intercepted in 2008.
It is believed that Iran is protecting Saad Bin Laden, the son of Osama Bin Laden, and other Al Qaeda leaders including Saif al-Adel who fled Afghanistan in 2001. The Al Qaeda leadership holds regular meetings in eastern Iran according to a 2007 report.
Documents captured during the Osama Bin Laden raid revealed Al-Qaeda links to the Iranian regime.
The Iranian regime was cooperating with Al-Qaeda for years.
This week Iranian officials admitted for the first time to facilitating the 9-11 attacks on America.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Iranian officials, in a first, have admitted to facilitating the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the U.S. by secretly aiding the free travel of al Qaeda operatives who eventually went on to fly commercial airliners into the Twin Towers in New York City, according to new remarks from a senior Iranian official.
Mohammad-Javad Larijani, an international affairs assistant in the Iran’s judiciary, disclosed in Farsi-language remarks broadcast on Iran’s state-controlled television that Iranian intelligence officials secretly helped provide the al Qaeda attackers with passage and gave them refuge in the Islamic Republic, according to an English translation published by Al Arabiya.
