Conflict Records Research Center, Institute for National Strategic Studies, National Defense University: Saddam Hussein Collection and Al-Qaeda Collection
The records from Saddam Hussein’s regime consist of a wide range of government files—audio recordings of high-level meetings, speeches by Saddam and senior officials, correspondence between ministries, records of the Presidential Diwan, and others—that bear mainly on issues related to national security, defense policy, and diplomacy. These records are categorized by their originating agency or office (for instance, Iraqi Intelligence Service or General Military Intelligence Directorate), and will eventually constitute the vast majority of CRRC holdings. The CRRC currently houses copies of over 800 Iraqi state records (over 29,000 pages). The archive only includes documents dated prior to 9 April 2003.
--- The AQAM records consist of a wide range of files, including financial records, theological and ideological documents, strategic plans, operational guidebooks, and histories of individual operations from the Afghan war in the 1980s through the early 2000s.
