Zarqawi hatched the AL-QAEDA plan in IRAQ in 1999 according to those arrested. That seems to tie Iraq to Al-Qaeda before 9/11.... imagine that....planning the attack in Iraq.... Iraq had sarin that they used against the Kurds.... just thinking aloud...
Zarqawi was tried in absentia and was found guilty and sentenced to death. I wonder why the media never covered this?
I forget - do I have to excerpt Newsmax or can I post their articles in entirety?
(I have a 4/27/o4 article about the Jordan chem plot I like to keep handy...)
p.s. here's the link I was referring to:

Jordan WMD Plotter Confesses to Iraqi Involvement
Excerpts from the WMD conspirator's confession broadcast by ABC's "Nightline" late Monday show that the WMD plot was planned and trained for in Iraq more than a year before the U.S. invasion, with the terror suspect admitting, "After the fall of Afghanistan, I met Zarqawi again in Iraq."
The ensuing cloud of poison gas could have killed 80,000 people, Jordanian officials said, an estimate that was revised upward from an anticipated death toll of 20,000 last week.
In film footage broadcast by "Nightline," Jordanian television showed hundreds of plastic containers that had been removed from the trucks that Jordanian officials said were filled with chemical weapons.
Jordan's King Abdullah said last week that the five trucks originated from Syria and were intercepted just 75 miles from the Syrian border. Syria has long been suspected as a repository of Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction.
