But the bulk of his income comes from acting as middleman and fixer for the Afghan opium producers.

Folks, it does not get any better than this! By wiping out Afghanistan's opium crop, we win big in the War on Terrorism and the War on Drugs!

Common sense in the extreme!

Meese: Intelligence Report Could Doom Saddam Hussein

Sept. 18, 2001

Former Attorney General Ed Meese said late Tuesday that an intelligence report linking Twin Tower terror pilot Mohammed Atta to Iraqi intelligence may mean that a U.S. military response to last week's attacks could include the elimination of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

Meese made the startling prediction in an interview on Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes."

HANNITY: If this turns out to be true and we connect this to Iraq and we connect this to Saddam Hussein, do we have to have a policy that it's time for him to go specifically?

MEESE: Well, I think once we're in a war, as we are now, and once we find that a nation has contributed to our enemy -- to the terrorists, those supporting the terrorists -- if our leaders are morally certain of that, then I think that everything we would do in a war is proper, is legal and is reasonable.

So I think then going after (Hussein), certainly going after his headquarters, going after his military establishment and if in the course of that we have to hit him, I think that's very appropriate. (End of Excerpt)

Hours before Meese made his comments, CBS News reported that an intelligence report obtained by U.S. officials shows terror-pilot Atta met with the chief of Iraqi intelligence in Europe earlier this year.
