Document number CIA-RDP90B01370R000500700026-2 declassified and released through the CIA's CREST database. Previously available only on four computers located outside of Washington D.C., the Agency was successfully pressured into putting the files online as a result of a MuckRock lawsuit and the efforts of Emma Best. The metadata was collected by Data.World, and the files are now being archived and made text searchable by the Internet Archive.

This study examines the question of whether the type of leadership exhibited by Osama bin Laden which led to the devastating attacks of September 11 was a singular phenomenon or an example of a recurring type in the Islamic world. This thesis proposes that a specific, recurring type of charismatic religio-political leadership - first exhibited by Muhammad, the prophet and founder of Islam - has proven to be spectacularly successful throughout Islamic history. This leadership type, firmly rooted...

The Middle East today is an area of immense strategic interest to the United States and its allies. Its huge oil reserves, particularly in the Arabian Peninsula, its strategic location as a land bridge joining Europe, Asia and Africa, and increased Soviet activity in the area have lad the United States to seek a more active military role in the protection of the area. In order to promote U.S. interests along with international understanding and friendship, it is crucial for American Soldiers...

The region of the Arabian Marginal Seas and Gulfs (AMSG) continues to be of paramount importance to the world community for a variety of economic and political reasons. The immense petroleum resources and their maritime export from the region and the complex evolution and conflict of competing political entities are constantly demanding attention. In May 1999, over 50 atmospheric and oceanic scientists gathered at the Stennis Space Center to assess their knowledge of this region and identify...

Long and narrow, the Red Sea slices between Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, filling part of the Great Rift Valley, where several tectonic plates are spreading away from one another. Political instability and geographic isolation have limited studies of the Red Sea for decades. Detailed information about annual and seasonal patterns of biological productivity is scarce, particularly in the northern Red Sea. As is often the case in isolated places, satellites can provide scientists with...

This thesis examines the status of globalization in the Middle East, specifically with respect to three major elements of globalization: politics, economics, and culture. The thesis discusses the importance and difficulties of fostering the conditions that would facilitate the acceptance of globalization by Islamic Arabs in the Middle East, thus increasing the region's prosperity and stability. The thesis also addresses the compatibility of Islamic Arabs in the Middle East with current...

In this excellent essay Lt Col David G. Curdy examines the prospects for democratic transitions in the Middle East. He notes that with the conclusion of the cold war, the basis for US Middle East policy, which had centered around oil, Israel, and the Soviet Union, should be reexamined and, perhaps, redesigned. Moreover, major political events stemming from the 199-91 Gulf War have reenergized efforts to implement democratic processes within the region. Colonel Curdy argues that the West has...

The Middle East is currently in one of its most dramatic periods of turbulence since the post-World War I emergence of the modern state system in that region. Recently, the United States and its Arab allies have been concerned by a number of distressing regional trends including the uncertain future of Iranian influence throughout the region, the rise and persistence of the Islamic State (IS) organization, the ouster of Yemen s Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi government from the capital of Sana a and...

Alone, the desert locust is nothing to worry about. It is a solitary creature that stays out of sight munching on plants. But when enough locusts are packed into a small area, they form aggressive swarms that migrate from place to place, consuming all vegetation in their path. The transformation from solitary insect to plaguing swarm happens when conditions force the locusts into close confinement. Along the shores of the Red Sea, the locusts' winter breeding area, swarms develop when rain...

The Middle East is now the focus for a major portion of US strategic thinking. American concerns for assuring the continued flow of oil to the industrial West and Japan, resolving the Arab-Israeli problems, forestalling increased Soviet influence, preserving the national independence of area states, and maintaining regional stability indicate the importance and complexity of US involvement in the region. Events in the late 1970s altered the strategic environment drastically, causing the United...

The Red Sea basin lies within a region syllogized variously as the 'arc of instability,' the 'crescent of crises' and the 'crumbling triangle.' Regardless of the metaphor utilized, this volatile cul-de-sac pulses with instability. The pattern of Soviet strategy that emerges for the Red Sea basin indicates not a grand design, but rather an attempt to manage regional instability in accordance with Russian national interests. Destabilizing events provide Moscow with targets of opportunity which...

Driven by northwesterly winds, sands from northwest Saudi Arabia have accumulated in the center of the country as great rivers of dunes (cordons) that extend for hundreds of kilometers. About 320 kilometers northwest of Riyadh, the steep, almost cliff-like margin of the Ad Dahna cordon casts a shadow (right center; diagonally across the scene). Two types of dune surface appear: the tracery of numerous linear dunes (center) and a featureless sand sheet (lower left). Dark, older rocks (30-65...

The floods resulted from a powerful storm, which brought heavy rains to the desert kingdom during the final days of the annual Hajj pilgrimage,...

The western half of the Arabian Peninsula contains not only large expanses of sand and gravel, but extensive lava fields known as ( for a named field). One such field is the 14,000-square-kilometer Harrat Khaybar, located approximately 137 kilometers to the northeast of the city of Al Madinah (Medina). The volcanic field was formed by eruptions along a 100-kilometer, north-south vent system over the past 5 million years. The most recent recorded eruption took place between 600-700 AD. Harrat...

Harrat Khaybar, Saudi Arabia lies in the western half of the Arabian peninsula and contains not only large expanses of sand and gravel, but also extensive lava fields known as haraat (harrat for a named field). According to scientists, the volcanic field was formed by eruptions along a long north-south linear vent system over the past 5 million years; the most recent recorded eruption took place between 600-700 A.D. The presence of tuff cones -- formed by eruption of lava in the presence of...

This unique photograph of shallow Red Sea waters off the coast of Saudi Arabia gives us a glimpse of both the coral reefs under the surface, and the texture and movements of surface waters. On the left side of the image we see through the water column to the reefs below the surface. On the right side of the image, the sun reflects off of microscopic oily films formed by a combination of natural biological sources and human activities on the sea surface (visit...

Dark-colored volcanic cones sprout from an ancient lava field known as Harrat Al Birk along Saudi Arabia's Red Sea coastline. Many such lava fields dot the Arabian Peninsula and range in age from 2 million to 30 million years old.This image was acquired by <a HREF="http://landsat7.usgs.gov/">Landsat 7’s</a> Enhanced Thematic Mapper plus (ETM+) sensor.

Saudi Arabia boasts the most coral reefs of any Middle Eastern country, as it includes coastline along both the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf. This high-resolution astronaut photograph shows part of the Al Wadj Bank, located along the northern Red Sea coast. Despite the relatively high salinity of Red Sea water (compared to other oceans), approximately 260 species of coral have been documented in the region. Large tracts of the Saudi Arabian coastline are undeveloped, and reefs in these areas...
