Bin Laden aide had KGB link

By Aussiegirl

Here's a bit more info from the Gulf Times on the Zawahiri/KGB connection, no wonder Putin seems less than helpful on the war on terror. If this is true then Zawahiri follows in a long line of Marxist and KGB trained muslim terrorists, including the late unlamented Yassir Arafat:

Al Qaeda's number two was trained by Russia's secret service : and served as a KGB agent before becoming Osama bin Laden's right-hand man, a former KGB secret agent told Poland's Rzeczpospolita newspaper yesterday.

Ayman al-Zawahiri trained at a Federal Security Service (FSB, former KGB) base in Dagestan in 1998, claimed ex-FSB agent Alexander Litvinenko who fled Russia in 2000.
He was then transferred to Afghanistan where he became Osama bin Laden's deputy, Litvinenko told the newspaper.
"I was working in that section at the time and I can confirm the fact Zawahiri was not the only link between the FSB and Al Qaeda, he said. "
