    Default Snippet

    From a longer NYRB article on teh confrontation with Iran:
    A recently released compendium of declassified documents captured in the US raid in Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden makes clear the abiding mistrust between the two sides and the miserable conditions that al-Qaeda operatives have endured as guests of Iran.

    Presumably someone knows where this 'compendium' can be located?

    Default Al-Qaeda’s Iran Dilemma: Evidence from the Abbottabad Records

    Yes,another article on the Abbottabad Records from the journal 'Studies in Conflict and Terrorism' by Bryce Loidot, Institute for National Strategic Studies, National Defense University, Washington, DC, USA. I have not read this.

    The Abstract:
    Through a comprehensive review of documents recovered from Usama bin Ladins Abbottabad compound, this study provides a new periodization of al-Qaedas relationship with Iran. The analysis reveals that al-Qaeda often had to reconcile conflicting operational and ideational pressures in its interactions with the Islamic Republic over time. Beyond offering insight into the trajectory of this important relation-ship and direction for future scholarship, the analysis suggests someways through which the United States might expand the strategic wedge that exists between these unlikely allies and highlights the need for a more flexible understanding of state sponsored terrorism.
