WikiLeaks: The Iran-Al-Qaeda Connection

(Weekly Standard) Thomas Joscelyn - A WikiLeaks cable recounts a meeting on Sep. 5, 2009, between President Obama's counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan, and Saudi Prince Nayif bin Abdulaziz, the kingdom's longtime interior minister. "Nayif complained that over the past two years Iran has hosted Saudis (all Sunnis) - including Osama bin Laden's son Ibrahim - who had contacts with terrorists and worked against the Kingdom." The Saudis released a list of their 85 most wanted terrorists in February 2009. Dozens were operating either inside Iran, or close to the Iranian border in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
