An intelligence breakthrough in the last several weeks made it possible for Secretary of State Colin L. Powell to set forth the first evidence of what he said was a well developed cell of Al Qaeda operating out of Baghdad that was responsible for the assassination of the American diplomat Laurence Foley last October.

The breakthrough was the work of a coalition of intelligence services from the United States, Britain, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, according to a senior official from one of the coalition countries.

The Qaeda network based in Iraq has operated for the last eight months under the supervision of Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi, a Jordanian of Palestinian origin who is also a veteran of the Afghan war against the former Soviet Union, Mr. Powell said.

Critical information about the network emerged from interrogations of captured cell members conducted under unspecified circumstances of psychological pressure, the coalition official said. But a lucky break also figured prominently ó a satellite phone conversation gave away the location of a Qaeda operative, Mr. Zarqawi's deputy, driving out of Iraq.

A splendid organ though it doubtless is, the New York Times may not necessarily be one's best sole choice for a critical stance towards US propaganda.
Have you followed Koh-Lin on this? A Jordanian in Afghanistan with links to Algeria is in cahoots with Baghdad? He also declared a connection with the recent murder of a British policemen -UK security services have retreated from this at a brisk pace.

Nans DESMICHELS, You appear to be speaking from your own personal perspective and bias. Do you have detailed information and links to support your argument?

I would be most appreciative to see your evidence.

All the Best,
Deep

terrorist cells operating in Germany and France, than in Iraq...though I don't agree. I'm sure there are numerous cells, especially in and around the tech schools in Germany, but I feel that the vast deserts of Iraq, existing military complexes, and friendly (to terrorist) government means that there are more in Iraq.
