Skip to comments.DOES CNSNEWS.COM HAVE THE STORY OF THE YEAR?
Posted on 10/04/2004 10:08:32 AM PDT by CT CONSERVATIVE
CNS News is a nice little right-of-center web-based wire service operating in Alexandria, Virginia. They seem like pretty solid reporters, and not likely to bite on, say, memos that are supposed to be from an Air National Guard office from 1972 that were created on Microsoft Word.
So it's kind of surprising to see this report:
Iraqi intelligence documents, confiscated by U.S. forces and obtained by CNSNews.com, show numerous efforts by Saddam Hussein's regime to work with some of the world's most notorious terror organizations, including al Qaeda, to target Americans. They demonstrate that Saddam's government possessed mustard gas and anthrax, both considered weapons of mass destruction, in the summer of 2000, during the period in which United Nations weapons inspectors were not present in Iraq. And the papers show that Iraq trained dozens of terrorists inside its borders. One of the Iraqi memos contains an order from Saddam for his intelligence service to support terrorist attacks against Americans in Somalia. The memo was written nine months before U.S. Army Rangers were ambushed in Mogadishu by forces loyal to a warlord with alleged ties to al Qaeda.

indications of major seismic event...
If this is true:
1- It needs to be checked out 110%
2- It needs to be ran through as much "main stream" media as possible
3- Bush needs to do everything short of saying "see, I told you so" to get the point across that Saddam wasn't the defanged snake the left made him out to be.
THIS HAS GOT TO BE IT!
Is this the October surprise?
Watch, they'll blame Bush for not discolssing this sooner hoping for an October suprise. The CIA hates Bush, they let this out so that Kerry isn't killed by offical release.
tip of iceberg?
Interesting that that same page says that Michael Moore his own bad self turned down the "Killian" memos - they weren't considered reliable.
I'd think a leak meant to innoculate JK would have gone to NYT..
Allow me to surmise that this was deliberatly leaked to a 'friendly' news source to ensure release rather than have the MSM poison the story first.
Now this story will bubble under the surface picking up momentum like the magna under Mount St. Hellens until it finally "Blows".
If you want on the list, FReepmail me. This IS a high-volume PING list...
If you go on to read the article it appears to be cynical of the "documents". I'm not saying it isn't worth looking into...but caution is important here.
Poor paper will probably burn to the ground soon after this report.
WE all know there is NO WMD anywhere in the world but America, and those poor terrorists are just defending themselves from us EVIL Bush supporters!
But we knew that all along...hehe
popcorn...no doze...pj's: check.
But this way, we aren't supposed to suspect the alterior motive.
CT, I would email this to Rush, Hannity, O'Reilly, Hewitt and Fox News. They probably have it already, but just to make sure.
This news and Kerry's disire to give Iran nuclear fuel could be his undoing :)
