Al-Qa'ida Training Manual

Artifact Details

After 9/11, CIA officers were part of the U.S.’s first response in Afghanistan, gathering many artifacts for intelligence analysis.

In 2001, US intelligence officers picked up this al-Qa’ida training manual outside Kandahar, Afghanistan. The officers found the manual while searching the ruins of a suspected chemical processing site. US ordnance that damaged the site caused the handbook’s burn marks. The manual includes instructions for firing Stinger missiles.
