Some Al-Qaeda fighters have been trained in Iraq in the camp of anti-Iranian MKO. The first group of bin Laden's fighters is reported to have been sent to the MEK camps in June 1998; MEK cadre also were then providing technical and military training for Taliban forces and running the Taliban's anti-Iran propaganda.
Michael Scheuer, former CIA agent, refers in his book, "Through Our Enemies' Eyes", to the relations between Al-Qaeda and terrorist MKO. He wrote:
Regarding Iraq, bin Laden, as noted was in contact with Baghdad's intelligence service since at least 1994. He reportedly cooperated with it in the area of chemical-biological-radiological-nuclear (CBRN) weapons and may have trained some fighters in Iraq at camps run by Saddam's anti-Iran force, the Mujahedin e-Khalq (MEK). The first group of bin Laden's fighters is reported to have been sent to the MEK camps in June 1998; MEK cadre also were then providing technical and military training for Taliban forces and running the Taliban's anti-Iran propaganda.
Michael Scheuer served for 22 years in CIA and was chief of Bin Laden Unit from 1996 to 1999. He also served as the advisor of the chief of that unit between September of 2001 and November 2004. He left CIA in 2004 and now works as a news analyst for CBS News and also as terrorism analyst for Jamestown Foundation.
He wrote his book in 2002 in which he focused on Bin Laden and extremist Islam. In part of his book, he discussed relations between Al-Qaeda and Saddam and Bin Laden's efforts to equip Al-Qaeda with unconventional weapons as well as group's relations with the MKO.
