The al-Qaeda Documents series is designed to pull together key documents necessary to develop a solid understanding of how al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations operate. The documents enclosed in this third volume consist of court documents related to al-Qaeda operatives in the US, the USS Cole Bombing, the East Africa Embassy Bombings and the Zacarias Moussaoui case. This volume also contains the translations of five articles/statements from al-Qaeda members Osama bin Laden, Saif al-Adel, Abu 'Ubeid al-Qurashi, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, Seif al-Din al-Ansari and al-Qaeda's Political Bureau. The article entitled, "Message to Our People in Iraq and the Gulf [region] Specifically, and to our Islamic Ummah in General: The Islamic Resistance Against the American Invasion of Qandahar and Lessons Learned" by Saif al-Adel is of particular note. As the name implies, the article is essentially a lessons learned report covering various aspects of the fighting in Afghanistan and how this knowledge can be applied by mujahideen in Iraq. It provides valuable insights into al-Qaeda's operations in Afghanistan, as well as the mujahideen tactics being employed in Iraq today.
