From the New York Sun(January 25, 2006) 
    • The former official, Michael Ledeen, now an author and scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, made the claim in an article published yesterday afternoon on the Web site of the conservative magazine National Review. Several American government officials refused to confirm that the Lebanese Hezbollah figure, Imad Mugniyah, was sighted at the meeting in Damascus last Thursday with Mr. Ahmadinejad and the Syrian dictator, Bashar Assad.
  • Ladeen speak of Imad on NRO back on February 6, 2003
    • The Germans have now confirmed that there have been meetings and that there is ongoing cooperation between al Qaeda's Osama bin Laden and Hezbollah's chief of operations, the equally legendary Imad Mughniyah. Not only are they cooperating on terrorist operations, but they are working closely to secure their wealth: Al Qaeda and Hezbollah work together to move gold and diamonds from Karachi to Sudan, via Iran.

    • Imad Mugniyah likely behind the capture of Israeli soldiers By Bill Roggio

    • Hezbollah has conducted a highly successful raid into Israeli territory, attacking a Israeli Defense Force outpost along the Israel-Lebanese border, killing three soldiers and capturing two after they were wounded. Four Israeli soldiers were killed when their tank ran over a land mine in Lebanon during follow-up operations to free the captured soldiers. An additional soldier was killed when attempting to recover the bodies of the four tankers.

    • The sophistication of this attack indicates Imad Fayez Mugniyah, Hezbollah's chief of military operations was directly involved. Mugniyah has a long history of successful military and terrorist operations across the globe. Mugniyah has a history of conducting similar snatch and grab operations against the Israelis. He was responsible for capturing three Israeli soldiers in Lebanon, and the abduction of an Israeli colonel in Kuwait in 2000.
      Mugniyah began his career in terrorism in the 1970s with Force 17, the personal bodyguard detachment for Yassar Arafat, and later joined Hezbollah. His more infamous terror attacks include the April 1983 bombing of the U.S. embassy in Beirut, killing 63; the October 1983 simultaneous truck bombings on the U.S. Marine and French paratrooper barracks in Beirut, killing 241 Marines and 58 French soldiers; the hijacking of TWA 847; the kidnappings and murders of U.S. military, intelligence and diplomatic personnel in Beirut; the bombing of the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1992, killing 29 people; the bombing of a Jewish cultural center in 1994, killing 86 people. He is suspected of direct involvement in the 1996 bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, killing 19 U.S. servicemen.
      Mugniyah has extensive links with the Iranian intelligence services, and has been directly linked to al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden, and recently deceased al-Qaeda in Iraq commander Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Mugniyah is on FBI's list of 22 most wanted terrorists, with a $5 million dollar reward for information leading to his capture. U.S. Special Forces aborted a raid to capture Mugniyah in the Persian Gulf in 1996. He was believed to have visited Syria in January of 2006, attending a meeting with Iranian President Ahmadinejad and Syrian President Assad.

    • “He is the most dangerous terrorist we’ve ever faced. He’s a pathological murderer,” says longtime CIA agent Bob Baer, who has chased Mugniyah for years. “Mugniyah is probably the most intelligent, most capable operative we’ve ever run across, including the KGB or anybody else. He enters by one door, exits by another, changes his cars daily, never makes appointments on a telephone, never is predictable. He only uses people that are related to him that he can trust. He doesn’t just recruit people. He is the master terrorist, the grail that we have been after since 1983.”

    • The fact that Mohammed Ali Hammadi was allowed to be released by Germany is a political disgrace, and I am sure that you agree with this. The fact that Hammadi, along with Ali Atwa, Iz-Al-Din and Imad Mugniyah are all free to reside in Lebanon, with their families, is also a disgrace.

      • The fact that Mohammed Ali Hammadi was allowed to be released by Germany is a political disgrace, and I am sure that you agree with this. The fact that Hammadi, along with Ali Atwa, Iz-Al-Din and Imad Mugniyah are all free to reside in Lebanon, with their families, is also a disgrace.
      • Over 40% of the FBI’s most wanted terrorists are believed to be located in Lebanon. One of those terrorists, Imad Mugniyah, is believed to be responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American citizens who were killed in terrorist attacks in Lebanon.
      • In 1985, two of Mugniyah's men hijacked a T.W.A. airplane, a Boeing 727, on a scheduled run between Athens and Rome. Almost immediately after seizing control, the hijackers, Hassan Izz-al-Din and Muhammad Ali Hamadi, began searching the plane for American servicemen. They soon discovered a group of Navy divers and a thirty-eight-year-old Army Reserve major named Kurt Carlson.

      GIS includes the Defense & Foreign Affairs Daily intelligence briefing, which is issued five days a week, and covers current strategic intelligence issues.
      •  GIS sources confirmed in mid-December 2003 that the Lebanese HizbAllah chief Imad Mugniyah — intimately linked with his major patron, the clerical Government of Iran and its Revolutionary Guard Corps (Pasdaran) — was now operating in Iraq and involved in the anti-Coalition insurgency. GIS sources stressed that the involvement of Mugniyah in anti-Coalition operations in Iraq directly implicated Tehran in these activities; Mugniyah had operated only under the auspices of the Iranian Government ever since his shift to HizbAllah from Palestinian Pres. Yasir Arafat’s Force 17 in the early 1980s and had since operated alternately out of Tehran or Beirut, most recently the latter. Mugniyah was believed to be working with the assistance of Iraq-based Iranian Pasdaran.
      • The circumstances surrounding Mugniyah’s relocation, including whether his removal from Iraq would be only temporary, remained unclear; GIS sources could not confirm regional reporting in January-February 2004 that placed the HizbAllah operative in Iran, but acknowledged the possibility that he had been called in by Tehran for consultations about the next phase of the war in Iraq.
      • A December 17, 2003, report in GIS/Defense & Foreign Affairs Daily entitled Imad Mugniyah Now in Iraq; “Iraqi Resistance” Set to Evolve in Response to US Offensive, Capture of Saddam had presaged:
      • “The model for this new insurgency strategy would be based on the campaign waged by Iran, Syria, and the HizbAllah to evict US Forces from Lebanon from 1982-1984 that saw then US Pres. Ronald Reagan withdraw US Marines from the country in February 1984 …The terrorist offensive conducted by Tehran and Damascus with their HizbAllah proxy forces in Lebanon had also included the kidnappings of key foreign nationals. It could be expected that Tehran, Damascus, and Mugniyah would revert back to the tactics that had brought them such strategic gain in the early 1980s.
    Iran's President recruits terror master  by Sarah Baxter
    IRAN’S president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, attended a meeting in Syria earlier this year with one of the world’s most wanted terrorists, according to intelligence experts and a former national security official in Washington.
    US officials and Israel intelligence sources believe Imad Mugniyeh, the Lebanese commander of Hezbollah’s overseas operations, has taken charge of plotting Iran’s retaliation against western targets should President George W Bush order a strike on Iranian nuclear sites.
    Mugniyeh is on the FBI’s “Most Wanted Terrorists” list for his role in a series of high-profile attacks against the West, including the 1985 hijacking of a TWA jet and murder of one of its passengers, a US navy diver.
    Now in his mid-forties, Mugniyeh is reported to have travelled with Ahmadinejad in January this year from Tehran to Damascus, where the Iranian president met leaders of Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and Hamas.
    The meeting has been dubbed a “terror summit” because of the presence of so many groups behind attacks on Israel, which Ahmadinejad has threatened to wipe from the map.
    Jane’s Intelligence Review cited “reports in recent weeks” of Mugniyeh’s presence alongside the president.
    Michael Ledeen, a Middle East expert and former Pentagon and National Security Council official who wrote that Mugniyeh had “probably” been there, said last week senior American officials had confirmed it.
    "It’s hard to identify Mugniyeh because he is said to have changed his face and his fingerprints,” Ledeen said. “But senior government officials have told me I was right. He was there.”
