The Connection: How al Qaeda's Collaboration with Saddam Hussein Has Endangered America, Hayes, Stephen F.
2 The Connection: How al Qaeda's Collaboration with Saddam Hussein Has Endangered America Hayes, Stephen F.
Very Good. 
Hardcover. Stated 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 2004 HarperCollins. The word 'Gift' is inkstamped on 1st blank page. Otherwise very clean; no marks in text; pages bright; binding tight. Only light wear. 194 pages. Language: English. 'Weekly Standard reporter Hayes marshals a wealth of evidence that, in contrast with the tenuous connections that have so far made news, point to ties between Saddam Hussein's regime and al-Qaeda. Most intriguingly, Hayes finds links between Iraq and the 1993 World Trade Center bombers, one of whom apparently received shelter and financial support from Iraq after the attack. Hayes also gets confirmation by Czech officials of the alleged Prague meeting between September 11 hijacker Mohammed Atta and an Iraqi intelligence agent. Elsewhere, Hayes points to Iraqi intelligence documents that mention a good relationship with bin Laden. Other sources note an alleged agreement for Iraq to assist al-Qaeda in making chemical and biological weapons. Relying both on open sources like news articles, transcripts from the 1998 embassy bombing trials, as well as anonymous intelligence reports and informants, Hayes allows that some of these stories may prove unreliable. But he contends that the number, consistency and varied provenance of reports of high-level contacts between al-Qaeda and Iraq throughout the past decade allows one to connect the dots into a clear pattern of collaboration. Despite the frustrating absence of source notes and no knowledge of what cooperative efforts ever came of these contacts, most readers will conclude from this volume that the Saddam-al-Queda thread has some play left in it.'--Publishers Weekly.

The Palestinian Liberation Organization: People, Power and Politics, Cobban, Helena
3 The Palestinian Liberation Organization: People, Power and Politics Cobban, Helena
Good. 
Paperback. Softcover 1984 Cambridge. Noticeable average wear to covers. Very clean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. Notes, References, Bibliography. Language: English. The Cambridge Middle East Library series. '[A] comprehensive political analysis of the PLO. A correspondent in Beirut from 1976 to 1981, Helena Cobban has been able to study developments at close quarters and use documentary sources and first-hand recollections which have never been included in previous Western analyses of the movement. The book maintains that one key to understanding the development of the PLO is an examination of the development of its predominant member-group, Al-Fateh. The first part focuses on the history of Fateh, showing how its interests and the PLO's became intertwined. The latter part discusses the interrelations between the Fateh leadership and various factors which affect and are affected by its performance, such as the internal Palestinian opposition, the Arab milieu, and the resistance movement inside the Israeli-occupied areas. The final chapter draws together all the strands to arrive at the precise sources of the Fateh leadership's relative stability, as well as to assess its effectiveness in key areas of its operations.'--from the publisher.
