The memo's chronology seems confusing until I realized dates are presented in Euro format: day/month/year. If I'm reading this correctly, Saddam was recruiting terrorist pilots from the ranks of his air force--to strike Israel and US assets--six months prior to 9/11/01. Seems to me that if anyone's upset with Bush, it should be that he didn't attack Iraq a lot sooner.
Good point; it threw me for a moment. The dates are given day-month-year in the European style, meaning that the request for suicide volunteers was in March of 2001.
