Rush Limbaugh's Web site has 3 satellite images from an Ikonos commercial satellite with one-metre resolution of the Salman Pak facility 25 km south of Baghdad, which, according to Iraqi defectors, is used to train terrorists. It includes the fuselage of a Boeing 707, which is easily visible in one of the photos, with the tail broken off down and to the right for some reason (testing a bomb, perhaps)?
It's visual confirmation for all to see of the terrorist training camp former Iraqi army captain (now a defector) Sadah Khodada talked about in an interview with PBS's Frontline and The New York Times in October 2001.
And the camp has a 707 that they train on?
Yes, there's a real whole 707 plane, a whole real plane, standing in the middle of the training area in this camp.
And they train people on how to get access to the cabin, to the crew?
And how to take over the plane using weapons? How?
They will get trained on how to get weapons inside the plane. If there is a security weakness that they know of, they will prefer to get weapons. But I am sure that, before the attack of September 11, those people made a very thorough study. And they learned that getting weapons into the plane might not be a very good idea. But in this camp, I saw them getting trained on this kind of situations where security will not allow you to get weapons into the plane -- then what you need to do is to use all available methods and very advanced terrorizing method.
These methods are used to terrorize the passengers and the crew of the plane. They are even trained how to use utensils for food, like forks and knives provided in the plane. ... They are trained how to plant horror within the passengers by doing such actions. Even pens and pencils can be used for that purpose they were trained. They can do it, and they can overcome any plane because they are very well physically trained, and they are very strong, and they can do it. They can overtake a plane in a very efficient manner. ...
Whether or not there's a direct link to the 9/11 attacks is actually pretty moot to me, since I'm of the opinion that pretty much the entire Arab world needs an enema, and take out Iraq and some of the other regimes will fall like a house of cards, while there will be civil war in other countries (not an ideal outcome, but better than the status quo, if that's the form the enema takes in those countries).
