Hard Evidence Finally Links Saddam Hussein's Iraq to 9/11 - Game. Set. Match.

Hard Evidence Finally Links Saddam Hussein's Iraq to 9/11 - Game. Set. Match.



WSJ: Saddam's Files Show 'Direct' 9/11 Link
http://www.newsmax.com/archives/ic/2004/5/27/100047.shtml

Newly uncovered files examined by U.S. military investigators in Baghdad show what is being described as "a direct link" between Saddam Hussein's elite Fedayeen military unit and the terrorist attacks on America on Sept. 11, 2001.

Ahmed Hikmat Shakir, who attended a January 2000 al Qaida summit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where the 9/11 attacks were planned, is listed among the officers on three Fedayeen rosters reviewed by U.S. probers, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.

"Our government sources, who have seen translations of the documents, say Shakir is listed with the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel," the paper said.

In a post obtained through Saddam's Mukahbarrat intelligence service, Shakir was stationed at the Iraqi embassy in Kuala Lumpur at the time of the 9/11 planning session.



The Link Between Iraq and Al-Qaeda
http://www.insightmag.com/news/477622.html

Senior investigators and analysts in the U.S. government have concluded that Iraq acted as a state sponsor of terrorism against Americans and logistically supported the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States...

Leitner says "Iraq has been in a proxy war against the U.S. for years and has used al-Qaeda in that war against the United States."


OK, Democrats, liberals and leftists worldwide... Time to eat crow once again. (I won't hold my breath.) You probably don't even know about this news story, though it should be the lead story on all American news outlets.

Striking, direct evidence now links Saddam Hussein's Iraq to the September 11, 2001 attacks on the USA. The Wall Street Journal and Newsmax.com are the only one's reporting it. Drudge? Nowhere to be found. AP? Reuters? Please.

Yes, as it turns out, a "Lieutenant-Colonel" in Saddam Hussein's personal military unit, the Fedayeen, was present at the 9/11 planning sessions in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia! You know, the meeting where the only successful attacks on the mainland United States in 150 years was pre-planned by Al Q'aeda terrorists, including Flight 77 hijackers Khalid al Midhar and Nawaz al Hamzi, as well as Ramzi bin al Shibh, the operational planner of the attacks.

Nevermind that Saddam Hussein boasted after the 9/11 attacks about having planned them. Nevermind that he had murals created to commemorate his successful attacks on the United States.

Nevermind that the Czech government confirms to this day that Mohammed Atta met with Iraqi intelligence agents in Prague prior to the 9/11 attacks.

Nevermind that a missing suspect in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing is a former Iraqi soldier who later secured a job at Boston's Logan Airport, where two of the 9-11 hijackers boarded planes they later commandeered and slammed into the World Trade Center.

Nevermind that it was the Fedayeen who setup Salmon Pak, Saddam Hussein's airplane hijacking school located on the outskirts of Baghdad and that a U.S. district court judge in Manhattan ruled in 2002 that Salman Pak played a material role in the devastating Sept. 11 attacks on America.

No, forget about all these "unrelated" and "unproven" allegations against Iraq... Now we have real evidence.

Iraqi agents, working with Al Q'aeda terrorists, attacked the United States on September 11, 2001, killing over 3000 Americans.

Or, maybe not...

Perhaps that is why Saddam was the *ONLY* Head-of-State that I heard that day praising the attacks and offer all of his considerable resources to assist any and all who would mount more such attacks.

Even Kim Jong-Il, the pie-eyed lunatic "president" of North Korea, offered his condolences to the American People.

Even Yassir Arabfart offered his condolences, at least in English.

Our Enemy within will never feel obliged to admit their error...regardless of how much innocent blood stains their hands. Never have, never will. They can only be removed from positions of influance by way of the ballot box and market place.

Is it a question of need or want?

I don't need much more than food, water, and air.

People ask me if I *need* and SUV. I always answer no, but thank goodness need has nothing to do with it.

Either Saddam laundered 9/11 thru Al Qaida or at a minimum provided airplane hijacking training. Either way, there's a direct link no one can deny.

Yes, and Iraq was the only country at the United Nations in New York that did not lower its flag to half-mast.

No problem. I get the urge to write occasionally. This is just too important to ignore. But, as usual, the media will do exactly that.

there's a direct link no one can deny

they will try to deny it and even go out of their way to propagandize that there was no direct link and that the president lied because truth is not important to them

As Bush has gone on the record saying that Iraq had "no connection", it is now time that Bush make a speech, make it mandatory that the networks cover it, and announce this connection.

Also for Bush to win the election he should do this.

I doubt that he will though.

Bush doesn't understand the errors he made by not striking back immediately after 9/11 and trying to get international support as his father had.

He also doesn't take serious enough the need to combat the misinformation from the other sides.

I mean, this is no different than young John F. Kerry attending the meeting at which a call for assassinating Congressmen was issued!
