The Iraq-Al Qaeda Connection

Hat tip to Hankmeister for pointing out this Power Line Blog article...

A Trip Down Memory Lane
The current flap over the Pentagon Inspector General's report on Douglas Feith's Office of Special Plans has embarrassed the Associated Press, the Washington Post and, if he has any shame, the Inspector General. The controversy does have the merit, though, of raising once again the issue of the relationship between Saddam's Iraq and al Qaeda and other terrorists.

The Inspector General said it was "inappropriate" for Feith's group to question the wisdom of the CIA's dogma that Saddam Hussein, a "secularist," would never cooperate with bin Laden or other Islamic terrorists. There was a time, though, when the likelihood of such collaboration was widely reported and understood. Thus, courtesy of Power Line Video, we are rescuing from the memory hole this ABC News report from 2000.

NOTE: According to a posting in December 2005 at Free Republic HERE, the ABC video with reporter Sheila MacVicar was done as early as 1999...

Thanks for putting it to good use, Possumtrot. I also emailed you how the lamestream media blew the recently released report concerning "evidence" that the Donks think they have that Feith "cooked" pre-war intelligence estimates about the relationship between al Qaeda and Saddam's regime. Of course he did no such thing as WaPo and the AP had to acknowledge in so many words but the liberal lie is already out there despite their "corrections".

It's also interesting that the recently translated Iraqi documents points even more fingers to the reality there was indeed some kind of pre-war connection between Saddam's regime and Al Qaeda though not with regard to 9/11 itself.

Just like the Dems to try and compartmentalize everything by trying to make hay over some of the vagueries of pre-war intelligence while ignoring the post-war intelligence which actually confirms some of the pre-war intelligence estimates. But then dimbulbs like Elroy always blindly embrace the liberal media narrative ... unless of course it contradicts their "Bush lied" meme.
