More Evidence of a Saddam/OBL Connection

From the NY Sun ;

CAIRO, Egypt - A former Democratic senator and 9/11 commissioner says a recently declassified Iraqi account of a 1995 meeting between Osama bin Laden and a senior Iraqi envoy presents a "significant set of facts," and shows a more detailed collaboration between Iraq and Al Qaeda.

In an interview yesterday, the current president of the New School University, Bob Kerrey, was careful to say that new documents translated last night by ABC News did not prove Saddam Hussein played a role in any way in plotting the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Nonetheless, the former senator from Nebraska said that the new document shows that "Saddam was a significant enemy of the United States." Mr. Kerrey said he believed America's understanding of the deposed tyrant's relationship with Al Qaeda would become much deeper as more captured Iraqi documents and audiotapes are disclosed.

I've posted repetedly about the mounting evidence against Saddam.

I didn't buy the idea that Saddam never had WMD's and was never connected to terrorism. So, none of this is any kind of surprise to me. Saddam Hussien's Philathropy of Terror is a website by Delroy Murdock detailing Saddam's reign in Iraq;

Actually, Saddam Hussein knew plenty about terrorism. In essence, he owned and operated a full-service general store for global terrorists, complete with cash, diplomatic aid, safe haven, training, and even medical attention. Such assistance violated United Nations Security Council Resolution 687. The results not only broke international law, but also were deadly, as this chart demonstrates:

Saddam invaded Kuwait. He used chemical warfare against the Iranians. He used gas warfare against the Kurds. Saddam funded the families of suicide bombers, used the UN's Oil For Food program to build massive palaces for himself. Now the stench of al-Quada and 9/11 are all over him. Bush was right. The War is just. Let's support the troops.

I found an interesting piece today--about Putin as a plagiarizer. You might want to have a look.

I'm willing to bet that Syria now has a stockpile of former Iraqi weapons. In truth, the MSM doesn't really care about connections with Al Qaeda or WMD's. It is much more interested in comparing Iraq to Vietnam and I believe they secretly delight in any setback to the US. The MSM has their own agenda.

I wish that I could find the book again...Back during the post-9/11 anthrax attacks, I found a library book which stated that Saddam bragged about weaponizing West Nile Virus and releasing same on Israel.

Saddam had a fixation about bio and chem weapons.
