Taibah International Aid Association (or “Taibah”) is a charitable organization headquartered in Falls Church, Virginia. Established in 1991, Taibah’s IRS Form 1023, which serves as an application to the United States Government for tax exempt status, lists Abdullah A. bin Laden, Osama bin Laden’s half-brother, as a founding officer.
Although it purports to be a humanitarian organization, the Taibah International Aid Association furthers the aims and materially supports Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda. Through the actions of its agents, officers and employees, Taibah has provided financial and material support to al Qaeda. The strong affiliation that Taibah maintains with many other al Qaeda front-groups demonstrates its place as a highly connected component of Osama bin Laden’s financial and logistical support network.
Abdurahman M. Alamoudi, a founder of the American Muslim Council and related American Muslim Foundation, was indicted Thursday on charges of engaging in illegal financial transactions with Libya. Alamoudi is listed as vice president of an organization in Falls Church, Va., called the Taibah International Aid Association. A director of that organization is Abdullah A. bin Laden, nephew of al Qaeda leader bin Laden, according to the affidavit.
Officials found seven U.S.-designated terrorist groups among the names and numbers in al-Amoudi's confiscated Palm Pilot. The government also found an unsigned document in Arabic during a search of al-Amoudi's office in Virginia that makes numerous references to Hamas and discusses "execution of operations against the Israelis to delay the peace process."
It is an almost unknown fact that Abdullah ran a training camp for Chechens in Okeechobee Florida. He did this whilst living with US military personnel and with US military permission. Was this a camp a terror training camp? I dont know.
Greg Palast was provided with a document about an FBI Washington field office counter terrorism investigation of Abdullah bin Laden which had been blocked pre 9/11.
