Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maybe you know of other information but those areas not controlled by AQ or any other extremist groups then CDs, DVDs and yes books freely flow and are exchanged.

First, it should be noted that there is no Al Qaeda presence in Vietraq. There are various domestic partisan groups that like to style themselves "Al Qaeda in Iraq" but there is not a shred of indication that they have anything to do with what is usually understood as "Al Qaeda."

That being said, "in areas not controlled by partisans" is a pretty big qualifier. The Americans can barely keep the various Green Zones secure. And when it comes to that, I am pretty sure that you can't just walk into a bookstore in the Green Zone and pick up a book by Sayyid Qutb or Mahmoud Ahmedinejad... One person's anti-government propaganda is another person's terrorist tract and all that.
