Interessante opplysninger i en artikkel i Weekly Standard, om mulla Krekars forhold til Saddam-regimet.

Abu Wael mistenkes av Bush-administrasjonen og andre uavhengige kilder for å ha vært irakisk etterretningsagent. Wael har dessuten vært en nær medarbeider av Krekar.

«I know Abu Wael for 25 years,» Krekar said. «And he is in Baghdad. And he is an Arabic member of our shura, our leadership council also.»
(…)
Numerous individuals with firsthand knowledge of the Iraq-Ansar relationship have independently reported that Abu Wael works for both the Islamist group and Iraqi intelligence. And we have intercepts of Iraqi Intelligence officials offering support to Ansar al Islam.

Krekar har tidligere bekreftet bekjentskapet med Wael overfor VG, men ikke at Wael satt i ledelsen for Ansar al-Islam.

Om trekantforholdet Krekar – Saddam – Al-Qaida:

«Perhaps it was with this evidence in mind that Le Monde, in a separate article on June 27, 2005, wrote (without attribution) that Ansar al Islam «was founded in 2001 with the joint help of Saddam Hussein–who intended to use it against moderate Kurds–and Al-Qaeda, which hoped to find in Kurdistan a new location that would receive its members.»
