Skip to comments.The Truth Emerging About Iraq-bin Laden Connection
Posted on 03/29/2006 3:56:38 AM PST by IrishMike
A newly released Iraqi intelligence document, first reported by the Weekly Standard, outlines a February 1995 meeting between an Iraqi official and Osama bin Laden. The "Most Wanted" terrorist is said to have requested help from Iraq in "carrying out joint operations against foreign forces" in Saudi Arabia.
When Osama asked, the only foreign forces in Saudi Arabia were U.S. troops.
Saddam Hussein was fully briefed on the meeting and, according to the document, signed off on efforts to "invigorate" the relationship between Iraq and bin Laden.
Just eight months after that meeting, five U.S. advisers were killed by al-Qaida in Riyadh. Seven months later, 19 U.S. airmen died in the Khobar Towers bombing.
Notwithstanding the 2004 9/11 Commission conclusion that Saddam and bin Laden had no "collaborative, operational relationship," it was WRONG! The commission's perception' has been refuted with FACTS.
Former 9/11 Commission member Bob Kerrey says, "This is a very significant set of facts." Duh!
This is the former Democrat senator from Nebraska and Medal of Honor recipient "For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as a SEAL team leader during action against enemy aggressor (Viet Cong) forces."
Bob Kerrey is in many ways the antithesis of Sen. John Kerry. There is much more than an extra vowel differentiating the two.

Soren Kierkegaard claims "The truth is a snare: you cannot have it without being caught. You cannot have the truth in such a way that you catch it, but only in such a way that it catches you."
Bookmarked. Thank you.
I had the misfortune to catch a bit of National (enlightened) People's Radio today. For a while the "conventional wisdom" about Iraq was so universal and ingrained that they had stopped talking about it (except as established fact). Now the Lefties at NPR are talking about it again, if only to disparage the latest revelations. I guess that's a good sign.
You don't seem to understand. THERE WAS NO connection between Saddam and Osama bin Laden, so SHADDUP ABAUDIT.

I'm afraid the Left doesn't have a leg to stand on concerning that allegation. I think some of them willfully lied to create the impression that a connection between Hussein and Bin Laden was impossible.
The havoc brought to 9/11 dissemblers could and should have a significant impact ... if or when the mainstream media are caught on the river Denial'.
Major Assumtion Alert!!!! So far The Harmony Documents are getting almost no play in the MSM.
I'm afraid the Left doesn't have a leg to stand on concerning.....(incert any topic you care to mention).
Too busy reporting the Civil War in Iraq.
Anyway MSM will say the documents are forged and made up on the dining room table in Texas.
