With suggestions the U.S. negotiate with Syria and Iran dominating the news, Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin reports Washington has already been talking quietly to a Syrian dissident group linked directly to the 9/11 hijackers and their sponsors in al-Qaida.
The group is the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood, known for its association with al-Qaida and allied with former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
The Bush administration sought out the terrorists because of its desire for regime change in Damascus – apparently at almost any cost.
The National Security Council staff in August met twice at the White House with members of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood and former Syrian Vice President Abdul-Halim Khaddam, says the report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin, the premium, online intelligence newsletter published by the founder of WND.
Together, the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood and Khaddam are part of a larger opposition group, the National Salvation Front, comprised of a coalition of Syrian opposition figures in exile. The NSF is led by Khaddam. The head of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood is Ali Sadreddine al-Bayanouni.
Both Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein supported the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood. For years, bin Laden gave financial assistance to the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood. Saddam Hussein provided material support due to his Baathist opposition to the late Hafez al-Assad.
Bin Laden also has a close connection to Syria. His mother, Alia Ghanem, is from the Syrian coastal city of Latakia. She is said to be from the same Alawite group as al-Assad. She also is known to have ties to elements within the Syrian intelligence service.
Members of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood adhere to Wahabbism from which bin Laden based his religious fanaticism.
