The SurrenderMedia recently misreported (theres a surprise) that Saddam Hussein had no ties to al-Qaeda, when in fact the report the SurrenderMedia was trying to cover said just the opposite. As I noted at the time the analysis showed Saddam Hussein had long time ties with Ayman Zawahiri, who at the time ran the Egyptian Islamic Jihad terrorist group. A group that was integrated into al-Qaeda when Zawahiri joined forces with Bin Laden in the 1990s.
Gateway Pundit has a link to a recent news article out of Iraq showing evidence that Saddam Hussein continued his ties with Zawahiri after Egyptian Islamic Jihad had been integrated into al-Qaeda. In fact, the evidence points to Saddam attempting to coordinate terrorist attacks with al-Qaed AFTER 9-11!
The Kurdish daily Kurdistani Nwe has published a 2002 letter from the Iraqi presidency that it says proves that there was cooperation between the regime of Saddam Hussein and Al-Qaeda.
The letter, which appeared on the papers front page, was published by the intelligence apparatus of the Iraqi presidency and discussed an intention to meet with Ayman Al-Zawahiri in order to examine a plan drawn up by the Iraqi presidency to carry out a revenge operation in Saudi Arabia.
Unlike the previous evidence which did not show communication between Saddam and his ol buddy Zawahiri after 9-11, this evidence clearly shows Saddam knew who to go to in al-Qaeda to execute attacks on American allies after 9-11. So much for the Bush Lied crap from the SurrenderMedia and Surrendercrats in Congress.
Even more than that, Saddams was a notoriously reckless and power hungry brute. His invasion of Iran and Kuwait demonstrated how insane the man could be. His obsession with WMDs was proven out when his son-in-law exposed his undetected nuclear weapons program. Now we learn this unstable nutcase was attempting to coordinate an attack with al-Qaeda after 9-11, when he knew such contact could bring the wrath of America to his doorstep.
As usual, Bush was right and the libs were making things up to garner votes. Why would the liberal BS in 2008 be any less false than the BS they have promulgated for 7 long years? Clearly it isnt.
More evidence regarding Saddam.
bump bump bump bump bump bump bump
is mentioned in the comments section....
Anybody with half a brain knew Saddam had terrorist ties to everyone in the middle east. Look at the training camp he helped run at Salman Pak. He also was pumping a ton of money to Arafat’s chronies.
Not a single person will believe this.
Unless they are a FReeper and knew it anyway.
I’ve tried telling others and they wave their hand and disregard it.
Iraqis Publish More Proof Of Saddam Links To Al-Qaeda Leadership
Stop trying to confuse us with the facts
Yeah, but then they saw the great job Tom Daschle, Ted Kennedy, and Jay Rockefeller were doing without their help, and said “screw it.”
Pass the bong.....
It’s all lies, just more Pentagon War Propaganda < / sarc Left’s BDS self justification
Democrats Admit: Saddams Regime Harbored Al Queda

Hours after Senator Clinton dropped out of the race, and the news cycle was swamped with never-ending coverage of the inevitable doing the inevitable something was released under the radar.
Back in 2004 the Senate Intelligence Committee began an investigation into pre-war intelligence regarding Saddam's regime, the threat it posed, and how the intelligence was handled. Democrats on the committee did their best to politicize the investigation and give it the appearance of a precursor to impeachment of President Bush under some sort of Bush Lied conspiracy theory. They did this for purely political purposes despite being contrary to national interests. Again and again the committee came out with report after report. Each report showed that the problems with pre-war intelligence regarding Saddam's regime was not some grand conspiracy by a President who can barely read a teleprompter, but rather the result of bad intelligence from agencies that were as on the ball in 2002 and 2003 as they were on 9/11/2001; they were out of touch, undermanned, ill-equipped, budget constrained, and bureaucratically strangled.
Wonder why this has not been on every major network? /sarcasm
A reply to this from a NR writer is a great site
