The USA has provided government representatives from Russia and NATO members with information proving Osama bin Laden's involvement in the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington. Citing high-ranking sources in the US administration, CNN reported that the documents in question were handed over by Frank Taylor, the US special coordinator for counterterrorism who is currently visiting Brussels. According to sources in the White House, the documents included a plaintext of telephone talks between terrorists and statements of their bank accounts. The information supplied by Taylor proves that bin Laden and his terrorist organisation, Al-Qaeda, were behind the September 11 attacks on the USA, the explosion on board the USS Cole in Yemen, and blasts by the US embassies to Kenya and Tanzania, CNN reported.
