Untitled[edit]

I did a bit of speculation here, namely because it's hard to read Arabic sources which are the more abundant ones, but I tried to capture the gist of his views, and assumed a bit in the process. Someone correct me if I made mistake. -- Natalinasmpf 8 July 2005 11:52 (UTC)

Why is he identified as an Iraqi by category? This seems to be a mistake. --User:Artlessdodger

Actually yes. He was only born in Iraq but is Saudi Arabian. ★ blane ♪♫♪ 09:30, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

What about Al Faqih's relationship with Al Qaeda?[edit]

This article is deeply misleading if it says nothing about the nature of Saad Al Faqih's links with Al Qaeda and religious extremism. This article presents him almost as a human rights activist but he's a radical Islamist. You can be one or the other, but you can't be both.

For further information see Bin Laden connected to London dissident, BBC - on a mobile phone Al Faqih bought ended up in Al Qaeda's possession.

I've added a little on al-Faqih's Qaeda associates. LDH 05:11, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

explanation[edit]

I excised the following passage. It cites the History Commons -- which is an online encyclopedia, and like wikipedia articles, articles in that encyclopedia shouldn't be considered reliable sources.

In the late 1990s al-Faqih, al-Fawwaz, and Ziyad Khaleel supplied Osama bin Laden with a satellite telephone and an electric kettle.[1]

The History Commons attributes this claim to CNN. I checked CNN. I found no sign of any article making the assertion on CNN. Geo Swan (talk) 13:47, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
