The group they are talking about is Jund al-Islam, Ansar al-Islam, or Pishtiwanani Islam la Kurdistan. The source may be objectionable, but Michael Rubin did a good summary of their evolution for the Middle East Intelligence Bulletin (www.meib.org) toward the end of last year. (If I recall, he thought the group more linked to Iran than Iraq). I think this is the same group that The New Yorker later had that article on. There is also repeated mention of the group in Radio Free Europe's Iraq Report (www.rferl.org/iraq-report). --- firstname.lastname@example.org wrote: > CNN just reported links between Iraq and Al-Queda. > The link they suggest is that a group that is > affiliated with Al-Queda, > operates in Northern Iraq in the Kurdish area and > routinely travels in and > out of Iraq with Iraq's knowledge. > Amazing!!!
