Actually that Newsweak quote came in 1999, when you know who was their president.

Newsweek magazine ran an article in its January 11, 1999, issue headed "Saddam + Bin Laden?" "Here's what is known so far," it read: Saddam Hussein, who has a long record of supporting terrorism, is trying to rebuild his intelligence network overseas--assets that would allow him to establish a terrorism network. U.S. sources say he is reaching out to Islamic terrorists, including some who may be linked to Osama bin Laden, the wealthy Saudi exile accused of masterminding the bombing of two U.S. embassies in Africa last summer.

Four days later, on January 15, 1999, ABC News reported that three intelligence agencies believed that Saddam had offered asylum to bin Laden.

Isn't it amazing the minute that GW was sworn in, any linkage between the liberals's Uncle $oddomite and al Qaeda just disappeared in the past, the present then and of course now.

Yeh. Just like the WMD's which existed during the Clinton years, but vaporized into an ethereal existence when GWB took office.

Welcome to Orwell's "1984". The news depends upon who's president and facts don't seem to matter at all.
