FADALA, Afghanistan—The founder of the Islamic state, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was born in Fadhila, the capital of the autonomous region of northern Afghanistan.
He is believed to be the son of the founder of al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, and the son-in-law of the Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Nayef.
A close friend of the late Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, al-Qadhafi was a key figure in the Iranian nuclear deal and helped negotiate the nuclear deal with the United States and other world powers in return for a reduction in Iranian nuclear ambitions.
He had a close relationship with the late Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
He became a close adviser to the Taliban.
The Islamic State was created in 2014 as a loose alliance of armed groups, including al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent and the Taliban, in part by leveraging the financial resources of the group.
A few months after the Islamic States founding, its leader, Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, took over Baghdadi’s leadership of the organization and became the group’s leader.
Baghdadi has claimed responsibility for a number of attacks in the West, including the November 2017 attack in Paris that killed 130 people, and in November 2018 he said he was directing an attack in Washington.
He has also claimed responsibility and vowed to carry out attacks in Europe and the United Kingdom.
In addition to financing the Islamic states, al Baghdadi was also a close confidant of the Afghan leader, Hamid Karmal, who had a relationship with Baghdadi.
Karmali died in 2017, at the age of 76.
The Taliban, however, denied that Baghdadi had any role in the group or that he directed attacks in Afghanistan or elsewhere.
But the Islamic fighters have claimed responsibility in the past for attacks in France, Brussels and New York City.
The United States has not formally acknowledged any role or role Baghdadi may have played in the formation of the terrorist group, though the White House has repeatedly sought to point to the role of other individuals.
A 2016 report by the Senate Intelligence Committee found that al- Baghdadi, who is believed by some to have been born in 1978 in the eastern Afghan city of Khost, had received training and guidance from an unknown individual in Afghanistan.
It also found that in 2008, Baghdadi traveled to Qatar, where he met with a group of men believed to have ties to al Qaeda.
The report noted that Baghdads wife, Abbudin, had traveled to Afghanistan in 2007 to join the Taliban and was reportedly killed by U.S. forces in 2014.
The Pentagon has said Baghdadi met with the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2015 and that the two later met in Qatar.
The Senate Intelligence committee report said Baghdads efforts to build a militant network in the region “were well funded by a variety of individuals with varying agendas and motives, including some who may have engaged in some form of collaboration with al Qaeda, or the Taliban.”
U.N. officials have previously said that Baghdadis efforts to establish a network in Afghanistan may have been led by Karmalyes wife, who was not a member of the Taliban at the time of the meeting.
The House Intelligence Committee report, however said that Karmalin, the woman who had traveled from Qatar to join Baghdadi in Qatar, “may have played an important role in organizing the meeting and was at least indirectly responsible for coordinating the travel to Qatar and the subsequent visit to Afghanistan.”
Baghdadi is said to have also been able to find support in the Saudi royal family for his efforts.
According to the report, a former Saudi intelligence officer, who has been in contact with the Islamic leaders, said that during the meeting, Baghdad had discussed establishing a global caliphate and the need to create a caliphate in Afghanistan, and he suggested that Baghdaddi seek support from the Saudis.
The Saudi government has previously said it supports the Afghan Taliban and al-Karmal.
In 2017, a member in the U.K. parliament described Baghdadi as “the most dangerous man on earth” and said he has been a “leading recruiter” for al Qaeda and has been involved in the planning and planning of attacks against Western targets.
But a U. S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence, said the claim was “completely false.”
Uday Hasan, a retired Pakistani general and a close associate of al Baghdads son, said he believes the Saudis may have helped fund the Islamic extremists.
Hasan said the Saudis have a lot of influence in Afghanistan and that they had “been providing money to the Afghan rebels” since the Soviet occupation.
Hasan added that the Saudis also had money in the bank.
Hasan also said the Islamic groups are likely to try to expand their control in the coming years, given the fact that the Afghan government is expected to allow a Uighur
