AUTHOR’S
 
NOTE
 
Dysfunction
 
and
 
Decline:
 
Lessons
 
Learned
 
 from
 
Inside
 
 Al
Qa`ida
 
in
 
Iraq
 
is
 
 based
 
in
 
part
 
on
 
newly
 
declassified
 
documents
 
drawn
 
from
 
the
 
Department
 
of
 
Defense’s
 
Harmony
 
database.
 
Most
 
of
 
the
 
documents
 
released
 
with
 
this
 
report
 
have
 
never
 
 been
 
seen
 
 before;
 
a
 
few
 
have
 
 been
 
previously
 
released
 
 by
 
media
 
organizations
 
partially
 
redacted,
 
still
 
others
 
are
 
versions
 
of
 
messages
 
released
 
publicly
 
 by
 
al
Qa`ida
 
or
 
other
 
insurgents.
 
The
 
documents
 
released
 
with
 
this
 
report
 
are
 
 being
 
released
 
in
 
their
 
entirety.
 
Readers
 
should
 
 be
 
aware
 
that
 
analyzing
 
such
 
data
 
is
 
fraught
 
with
 
risk.
 
Documents
 
in
 
the
 
Harmony
 
database
 
were
 
collected
 
on
 
the
 
 battlefield
 
unscientifically.
 
There
 
is
 
no
 
way
 
to
 
know
 
how
 
representative
 
documents
 
captured
 
 by
 
U.S.
 
forces
 
are
 
of
 
the
 
larger
 
 body
 
of
 
information
 
produced
 
 by
 
al
Qa`ida
 
or
 
other
 
insurgents.
 
Likewise,
 
the
 
vast
 
database
 
in
 
which
 
they
 
are
 
stored
 
is
 
imperfect
 
and
 
virtually
 
impossible
 
to
 
search
 
systematically.
 
Readers
 
and
 
researchers
 
should
 
therefore
 
 be
 
wary
 
of
 
conclusions
 
drawn
 
solely
 
from
 
these
 
documents.
 
Captured
 
documents
 
offer
 
unique
 
insight
 
into
 
al
Qa`ida’s
 
decision
making
 
process,
 
 but
 
they
 
are
 
most
 
valuable
 
when
 
contextualized
 
with
 
information
 
drawn
 
from
 
open
 
sources.
 
Dysfunction
 
and
 
Decline
 
is
 
the
 
latest
 
Combating
 
Terrorism
 
Center
 
report
 
to
 
do
 
 just
 
that.
 
The
 
documents
 
that
 
informed
 
this
 
report
 
are
 
available
 
on
 
the
 
CTC’s
 
website
 
at:
 
 
The
 
CTC
 
cannot
 
vouch
 
for
 
the
 
authenticity
 
or
 
accuracy
 
of
 
these
 
documents,
 
except
 
to
 
confirm
 
that
 
they
 
have
 
 been
 
authorized
 
for
 
release
 
 by
 
competent
 
authorities
 
of
 
the
 
U.S.
 
government.
 
The
 
documents
 
are
 
 being
 
released
 
in
 
 both
 
the
 
original
 
Arabic
 
and
 
in
 
English.
 
I
 
would
 
like
 
to
 
thank
 
Michael
 
Knights,
 
Don
 
Rassler,
 
Katherine
 
Cleary
 
and
 
Lauren
 
Van
 
Horn
 
for
 
their
 
comments
 
on
 
this
 
report,
 
all
 
of
 
which
 
were
 
very
 
constructive
 
and
 
vastly
 
improved
 
the
 
product.
 
I
 
am
 
solely
 
responsible
 
for
 
any
 
inaccuracies
 
or
 
errors.
