Iraqi officer under Saddam masterminded rise of Islamic State - Spiegel| Reuters

BERLIN (Reuters) - A former intelligence officer for the late Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was the mastermind behind Islamic State's takeover of northern Syria, according to a report by Der Spiegel that is based on documents uncovered by the German magazine.

The documents were the work of a man identified by the magazine as Samir Abd Muhammad al-Khlifawi, a former colonel in the intelligence service of Saddam Hussein's air defence force, who went by the pseudonym Haji Bakr #Business #Syria #France #science #Africa #United Kingdom #Entertainment #lifestyle
