The proclaimed purpose of the organization was to assist in spreading the modern achievements of science and technology among Muslims. However, it is assessed that the reported assistance by the UTN to the Taliban or UBL is likely to have been nuclear or radiological in nature. 40 (S//NF) Detainee denied any knowledge of the UTN's involvement with procuring or building a nuclear weapon al-qaida. 41 (Analyst Note: It is possible detainee was involved in attempting to procure a nuclear weapon al- Qaida, based on his attempt to obtain other weapons capable of large-scale destruction, his support to al-qaida s anthrax research and his established connection to the UTN.) (S//NF) KU-568 reported detainee instructed him to provide monetary assistance to the Sanabil Organization in Kabul. 42 (Analyst Note: The Sanabil NGO has been identified as a source of funding the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG).

Detainee then made some challenging remarks against the US and the interrogator. 44 (Analyst Note: This is the only reporting of detainee acknowledging membership of al-qaida. Detainee and others have frequently mentioned friction between UBL and detainee, probably due to detainee s efts to usurp al-qaida s control and emplace al-wafa as a viable alternative source of funding and assistance to the Taliban in Afghanistan. It is possible that detainee made this statement out of frustration and anger. He has not cooperated with interrogators since making this statement, and while assessed to be a supporter of the network, detainee is not assessed to be a member of al-qaida.) (S//NF) Walid Muhammad Salih Bin Attash, aka (Khallad), aka (Silver), ISN US9YM DP (YM-10014), commented that the al-wafa NGO disagreed FEB NGIC - UTN Possible Assistances to UBL 23-SEP-2005, D-4J IIR (b), IIR , TD-314/ , D-4J IIR TD-314/ , TD-314/ , Analyst Note: The LIFG is an NIPF Priority 1B CT Target.

(S//NF) Detainee sent and received large money transfers while he was the head of al-wafa in Afghanistan. These transfers are assessed, in part, to have provided the noted support to extremism. (S) According to an unidentified senior al-qaida detainee, Shaykh al-rayis had originally been opposed to al-qaida s strategy, but began providing financial support to al-qaida after the US attacked Afghanistan. 47 (S//NF) KU-568 said that while at JTF-GTMO, detainee told him al-wafa sent $100,000 US to UBL. 48 (S//NF) Detainee stated that on occasion he would be instructed by Shaykh al-rayis to disperse funds to individuals unknown purposes. As an example, detainee stated he once provided $20,000 US to an individual named Hamid Gul, based on al-rayis orders, without knowing what the money was to be used. 49 (S//NF) Between 30 April 2001 and 22 September 2001, detainee received money transfers totaling at least $665,000 US. 50 (S//NF) Detainee, through al-wafa, supported extremist training and facilitated movement of extremists into Afghanistan.

(C/REL USA, GCTF) Aminullah Baryalai Tukhi, ISN US9AF DP (AF-1012), stated detainee employed him from the fall of 2000 through the fall of 2001 to smuggle Arab and Russian fighters from Iran into Afghanistan. 55 (S) SA-264 claimed detainee took passports and money from individuals entering Afghanistan. SA-264 also stated detainee told him it was a standard practice because the items were safer in an al-wafa office than anywhere else. 56 (Analyst Note: This is a common practice in al-qaida guesthouses as well. Guesthouses held passports and valuables to prevent losing them during movement in Afghanistan.) (S//NF) Detainee is associated with senior members of al-qaida, the Taliban and other Islamic extremists. (S//NF) Detainee was identified as part of UBL s close circle. A eign military intelligence service provided a list of twenty such associates of UBL. Abu Seif al-mekkii, a variant of detainee s aliases, is listed as an Arab from Mecca who manages the special services of al-wafa. 57 (S//NF) Detainee admitted meeting with UBL on at least two occasions while serving as director of al-wafa in Afghanistan. Detainee first met with UBL at UBL s house in Kandahar in late 2000 to discuss Shaykh al-rayis proposal to open al-wafa offices in Afghanistan.
