The Wall Street Journal bought a couple of computers from a looter that used to belong to Al Qaeda. A review of the contents of the hard drive revealed all sorts of interesting stuff, including a smoking gun that implicates Al Qaeda in the assassination of Ahmed Shah Massoud. If you ask me, the fact that Al Qaeda assassinated Massoud right before the attacks clearly indicates that Al Qaeda’s leadership knew full well when the attacks would occur and what the attacks would consist of, and that they had been planned far in advance. By assassinating Massoud, they hoped to eliminate the Northern Alliance as a potential ally for the United States when we went after them for the attack that was about to happen.
